Live @ Gizzi's (2011)

Feeling rejuvenated, I booked another solo performance at Gizzi’s. I had grown accustomed to anxiety, and not waking up in the middle of an argument was a healthy change in my life. Brenna made her presence in itself a home, and the time we spent together was conducive to my creativity. It wasn’t enough for her to simply spend the night. I wanted her to move in. After discussing with my brother and cousin, who shared the basement apartment with me, her entrance into our world would be made official. Having her artwork decorate the walls of our basement bedroom was an added touch I didn’t know I needed in my life. Breathing a little easier, with a pocket full of covers and originals to pull from, I took the small stage at Gizzi’s once again. While we maintained our status of “friends with benefits”, living as roommates added another layer of intimacy to our relationship. I’d never officially lived with a woman before, and performing on stage hit a little differently this time around. Drinks would flow, as they have many times before. But locking eyes with her gave me a buzz greater than any top-shelf surprise. I powered my way through the set, all the while anticipating the private celebration we’d have at home.
