Daily Discovery: David Micheal, “Harbor”
ARTIST: David Micheal
BIRTHDATE: The most commanding day of the year… March 4th.
AMBITIONS: To learn, and believably speak with a deep scottish accent; and do so at will…among other things.
TURN-ONS: A nice pair of ears; for both visual and communicative reasons.
TURN-OFFS: A big mouth; for the same two reasons.
DREAM GIG: The Gorge Amphitheater at sunset.
CELEBRITY CRUSH: Elaine Benes.
TV ADDICTIONS: Other than Seinfeld?
5 THINGS EVERY MAN SHOULD OWN: A heartbreak; the experience of giving a best man’s speech; an attainable dream that once seemed impossible; a pair of Levi’s; a pocket knife… and not necessarily in that order because you never know when you are going to need a toothpick before giving a best man’s speech at a casual wedding after being dumped by the girl you swore you’d never get.
THE BOOK THAT CHANGED MY LIFE: The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis because I finally realized who that damned voice was inside my head… pun intended.
PETS: A seven pound yorkie who swears she’s twelve times her size and I don’t have it in me to let her loose with a few German shepards to have her learn the hard way that she isn’t.
I WROTE THIS SONG: on a chase at a bed and breakfast inn at 2 am in Los Olivos, California. Wine and nudity may or may not have been involved.
