Jonathan grew up in the 1980’s and ’90’s, a typical suburbanite

He loved watching “The Wonder Years” when it came on Nick @ Nite

and he dreamed of playing music in Memphis & Nashville

Those neon city lights they shined so bright

He hasn’t forgotten

the dreams he dreamed back then

but he’s got such sweetness in his life now

and it’s so much more precious to him

Dear Thomas

Dear Thomas,

I’m not going to lie man, 

your talent often shines like diamonds, 

I think you’re one of a kind, man

I love how unflinching, 

how unapologetic you are

dropping your bars

you’re often spitting raw truth 

to the masses in your rhymes,

I’d never get tired of listening 

even if I heard it a thousand times

Keep pushing forward, I love the passion & zeal, keep it real

Due Credit

I heard a songwriter say something that struck me

as so very wrong

How people knew the artists who recorded his songs

but that they didn’t really have a clue

who he was @ all

It really is a heartbreaking plight

When the artists find success,

but the songwriters are forgotten

Like a shadow faded into the night

I don’t know about you

but I would love to see them

get more of the credit they are due
