After All (Michael & Matthew)

With just a moment to catch my breath between moving to beautiful West Virginia and heading off to my home away from home, Summer at Sem, I’m doing my best to hit pause and take stock. The past few months have handed me some incredible creative endeavors and new opportunities. Not the least of which, the release of Jeremiah Downes & Friends: Live at Farmers Alley Theatre.

Down the YouTube rabbit hole I go, stumbling upon a video of my beloved friend Stearns Matthews singing one of the first songs I wrote (a long, long time ago) at our little show down at The Duplex (a less long time ago). It wasn’t included on the aforementioned album but it was performed beautifully as a part of the evening at Farmers Alley by Matthew Lanyi.

Meet the singers. My beloved pals and brilliant artists, Alison Weisberg and Evan Gallagher-Frace. And, my old partner in crime, Mark Nucero on percussion!
