Most mornings require music in this house. Today, as many days past, this man has called me to throw on a vinyl, open a file or relive my experience with him on you tube.
Long before meeting him he was one of two of this girls favorite lyricists. Starting circa 1990-1993. His story is profound, however that is his to tell and believe me if you do have the chance to talk with him he will share.
In the late 2000’s I got the kooky idea of actually booking bands and running promotion solo (later with a friend from high school). DREAM BIG.
Mr. Enigk was the first show booked, funded, produced and promoted by my lonesome. It was selfish …wanting to hear his music, and yes meet him.
By far he was the most gracious, respectful, kind, accommodating musician and human I’ve worked with. He treated me as a friend..calming starstruck nerves..we even ventured to NASA before the show upon his request.
His music has changed lives and healed wounds. He, himself has saved lives with all the work and compassion he’s poured into humanitarianism.
A little insight into the former singer of Sunny Day Real Estate -which was the genesis of Nirvana-without whom the Foo-Fighters would have a less than drum player-to list a few-and of course with out him Lewis Hollow would never live.
If you venture to watch the YT posted for “How it Feels”- That was the show I spoke of, my first, how I managed to get such lovely sound quality? Sometimes the universe smiles.
“Don’t tell me, God
The dreams I’ve had
To fill it up
but spill instead
Talk to remind
Days, weeks and hours
All in time will be,
later on we’ll try
All we gave to fly
Hollow peaks we’ve climbed
All these things I’ve been
How it feels to be something on”
