“With the writing on the wall.
inside the the bathroom stall,
philosophies and lies its all a guess.
but the only thing,
only thing that made me smile.
was the only thing that made any sense.
Said, get in get out, get on your life,
listen to the music and spill some wine,
i think i finally found the secret chord, dancing on the edge of a sword”
– Josh Elliot
I have never really been keen on summing up life with witty quotes or phrases. And I sure as hell wont start now. I believe that it’s completely different for everybody. You and a friend can go to a concert together, leave together and see an entirely different show. All I can do is express what my life has meant to me. Having spent 36 years here one of the most important experiences i have has been building long lasting friendships. Almost a second family. Doug and I have been fortunate enough to be part of this this second family, to share living rooms, basements, campfires and stories with 20+ brothers and sisters, and one crazy Uncle. Who knows how long or even if, we would have had such a huge dinner table were it not for the musical workings of Josh Elliot.
I once heard a friend of ours try to describe Josh once. He said, “he’s kinda of a quiet guy, but if you put a mic in front of him, you wont be able to shut him up”. I would have to add, “nor would you want to”. Josh has always made our bodies move and shake through the vibrations of his guitar. Meanwhile, pulling on our heart strings with his sincere and genuine lyrics. What I think has truly set him apart, is the energy that he absorbs and pushes back in to the audience. We were able to take a ride with Josh on the apple cart to hear about his recent project and to see if he ever found the secret chord.
