Wake Up

It all started in Portland, Oregon.

Guitar Center North Portland

I was thinking about buying a new guitar during my USA trip for a while. When I realized that Oregon does not have a sales tax, thinking was over. The Guitar Center was not far away and so there I was. New bag, new Guitar, a little amp - and a new song idea.

We were heading down the west coast, which has an impressive musical history. Sometimes you still catch some of that spirit. So inspiring.

Surrounded by this environment, the whole guitar part was finished within minutes.

Back home, everything changed.

Back then, everything was different. It was a difficult time and my whole life literally changed. But in the end, its times like these that bring you forward. This song is a product of that time, and it will always remind me that fate doesn't care about plans...
