ManifestoWhy we play music:
For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else.
Here is some fake 3rd person:
Paul Chesne (born June 4, 1976) is an American country & soul singer-songwriter and guitarist.

We are like here’s everything we’ve got. And some stuff we don’t. Lay it down on the line. Hopefully it will touch you in some way that promotes empathy for your fellow souls. It’s the futuristic blues or something. It’s an emotional clusterfuck or epiphany as it were. It is the chaos and rhythm and wonder and ecstasy and the blues. Better known as rock and roll.
