|Richard Dutton and The So & So's|
I woke up at 5:30am to go to my grandparent's (my mum works near where they live, and so she drops me off there sometimes). I personally think that if anyone is going to get up that early, then they're mad... But I know people who do and, because I'm nice, I'll accept your weird liking of early mornings... :P
So off we went...
As we drove up Mt. Ousley, it started sprinkling. Mother-dearest then decided that we needed to listen to a bit of Richard Dutton and The So & So's. Now, if you haven't heard them, you need to. It's that simple. The band originated in Manchester, in 2009, after hearing that the awesome Richard Dutton needed a band in order to play live. Jay Bardsley, former bassman of Daddysmilk, got in touch with Richard, and soon joined the musician after a drummer, a "lass from Stretford," Zara Finnigan, had joined him.
Richard Dutton and The So & So's then just took off... Read more on their website, http://richardduttonmusic.co.uk/
Richard Dutton's voice is amazing. I swear, it's the equivalent to melted chocolate for me (at least, that's how I see it...:P). Their music is kind of alternative rock, mixed with jazz, with a big touch of blues. My whole music taste is changing just by listening to them, which I love. And their lead guitarist, Jay Bardsley, (or Jaybo, as I call him), is an awesome guy! I kinda see him as an older brother... :)
So anyways, we were listening to Richard Dutton and The So & So's, as it was sprinkling. It was just one of those really amazing times... And then, I look out the window, and see a rainbow. Like, a massive, bright rainbow. I've been having a bit of a tough time over the past few weeks, and haven't been very confident in anything really. To put it simply, I was doubting myself, a friend, and God. And so just seeing this beautiful rainbow reminded me that everything's going to be okay, and that God knows what He's doing, because He loves us. So, I'm happy, and a bit more confident, because I'm not going to give up... :)
And then, after I saw the rainbow, there was a blanket of fog. Literally, a blanket of fog. It was so cool beans! I love fog, and rain, and so when you put them together, it was pretty epic.
When I finally got to my grandparents, I fell asleep with Brooke Fraser's "Something In The Water" running through my head... So I'm gonna go listen to that about now...
This photo is pretty epic...
Hope you all have a fantastic-balismical day, smiling, and Don't Give Up.
