Daily Discovery: Bleu, “All Downhill From Here”
SONG: “All Downhill From Here”
BIRTHDATE: July 18th
BIRTHPLACE: Greenbay, WI, but I grew up in Blacksburg, VA, and came-up in Boston, MA!
AMBITIONS: To keep entertaining and being entertained for the rest of my life.
TURN-ONS: Fearlessness — and pure, unadulterated talent.
TURN-OFFS: The arrogantly untalented — and the overly serious.
MY GUILTY PLEASURE: Britney Spears
ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIES: Blade Runner, Children Of Men, Super 8 (can you tell I like sci-fi?) and Beer Fest.
CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: Seriously, there are sOo mAny wackos in my life – Ducky Carlisle, Wonda$how, Daniel Beddingfield, John Fields, Taylor Locke… moSt of my friends are (proudly) crAzy. I feel bad for leaving anyone out!
5 THINGS EVERY MAN SHOULD OWN: A nice watch, a flask and a bow tie.
CELEBRITY CRUSH: I know it’s cliche, but… Zoey Deschanel. I liked her pre-sitcom, but now that she’s added funny as hell to that singing voice — and her style… maybe I’ll get a chance to produce her one day.
MY GO-TO FEEL GOOD RECIPE: 2 1/2 parts Woodford Reserve bourbon, 1 part Carpana Antica sweet vermouth, a dash of Angostura bitters and a Luxardo cherry.
I WROTE THIS SONG: with Jez Ashurst from the incredible UK power-pop band Farrah. Although both of us are “professional-songwriters” we spent the day just satisfying our melodic and lyrical ids. This song will be on my next album.
