The song Makin It Real was inspired by the passing of two of my friends in music. Both died within the same year. The downer I experienced after their loss was helped, to some extent, by the writing and recording of this song. Fellow musician Warren Seaburg was always an inspirational performer. I really could not figure out how he was able to improvise and play so fluently on stage. I am still awed by his talents. Don Womack booked musicians and he really believed in what the artists were doing. He loved the music in a big way and told us all so.
Thank you Don and Warren for the ongoing inspiration. Here is a video of the band recording the song 'Makin It Real' at Clay Garden Studio in Norfolk Va. The song is from the 2012 album titled 'Passage.'
