Dave Crossland - Ohio - 1 Album in 1 Week...


Hello Big World,

A quick note to everyone to share the latest and ask you all for positive cosmic inspirational vibage.

Last night, I indulged in the miracle of human flight, traveling in a chair in the sky from LA to Atlanta to Akron, Ohio.

You see, my dad has decided the house is too big, has too many stairs, and it's time to make a change, so he just put a "For Sale By Owner" sign in the front yard of the house.   We moved in when I was 3, and though I haven't really lived here since I was 7, it's the only place I've known my whole life, my one geographical constant. So here I am for a week to spend time with Dad, dig deep --and write an ENTIRE ALBUM of new songs.

•-Which is insane, something I've never done, an idea I'm completely in love with, and I have no clue what's going to happen.

So if you feel inspired, please send a thought or two to this quiet little city in the Buckeye State.  The one-time rubber capital of the world, home of the original Goodyear blimp, the Soap Box Derby, the house of Doctor Bob (3 blocks away), Chrissie Hynde, Devo, Funky Winkerbean, Sojourner Truth's "Ain't I a Woman" speech, and my first elementary school --which they tore down last week.

And if you want to see a picture of the house, it's currently featured on the home page of my website:  http://www.davecrossland.com

As always, thank you for all the love and support.

Off to the races now.  Here's to whatever happens next~

Big love,
Dave
