the whole gist of the article was geared yes to give that chump a lesson in individualism and following your dreams in this very short life of ours, but also to bring to light the fact that so many of us (myself included) get sucked into a "job" and fall into the abyss of that job. let me tell you something, getting out of that abyss is torture and some people never find their way out. so what happens? they let their soul rot and their dreams die. which is why doing what you love, what makes you happy -hell that could mean being a dog sitter or a bus driver or even a writer -whatever it is, as long as you are happy with you life and what you do for a living, then that's all that really matters. the other stuff is just fluff. anyway, that's what i got out of jesse's article.
i love live music. i support it here in houston, every chance i get. i have quite a few friends who are musicians in various musical genres. some are local, some work for famous people and some just like to jam every now and again. it's all good. i will gladly lend my hand whenever possible. so it was a no-brainer when after reading jesse's article, that i decided to bring these kids' music to the spotlight -or my blog, which to me, IS a spotlight.
meet marissa and jesse sendejas, jr. a brother and sister duo from houston, texas (no, not like the other brother/sister duo aka donny and marie) who both respectively have their own music agenda. jesse plays in a band called days n daze. his sister marissa, is a budding solo artist who also from sings with days n daze. their music may not be everyone's cup of latte and that's okay. it's not mine either, but i wanted to blog about them because they really are very talented and hard-working kids. and i respect that. they write their own music, play all their instruments and pound the pavement, knocking on doors, asking for a shot at showcasing their talents. i have not seen them perform, but i am sure i will sometime. i've listened to a few of their songs and best i can describe their music is folk with a twist. some soft intros, strong and reverberating finishes. i know this description is not giving their music justice. my apologies sent in advance. so why don't you just check them out for yourself
