As much as I bitch and complain about my day job (versus my passion job), I have to be grateful that it’s a restaurant full of creative people. We’re made up of comedians, musicians and actors all trying to be in the industry. Being in LA has given me the opportunity to surround myself with different types of creative people in different levels of their career. I get invited to music shows, to screenings and to stand up. I get to see people’s progress from working at the restaurant to being able to quit because they’re actually making it. It’s inspiring and addicting. It’s contagious, I want to be them. Be a part of them. Work with them.
And I have!
I’ve realized that I’ve met a lot of creative people, especially from the restaurant! And when we work together, we produce awesome things. Every Xmas, a coworker of mine, Paul, produces a holiday cd that features the creative talents of our restaurant. I was fortunate enough to be a part of this cd last year and this year. And I would like to use this post to feature his production on my latest song. I wrote it and rapped it, but he really put it together and I just want to share how awesome he has made it.

Also, looking at all my tracks on soundcloud, I’ve realized that none of them would have been possible without the help of my restaurant people. Someone from the restaurant not only has always inspired me or encouraged me to produce these tracks, but has also provided the beats for me and has given it a production value that I could not do on my own.
