September Blues – (The Camera Fades included)

Happy September –
September comes with a myriad of emotions.
Excitement for what is to come in the new school year, a new season at work returning from Summer, and all sorts of possibilities about how the year will end – promotions, raises, the election, so much happening this season.
The September Blues disappointment because Summer, fun, BBQing, and family outdoor/vacation/beach season is ending.
Re-commitment and Intent – “this time I am gonna end the year strong,”  “I am gonna focus,”  “get back to those goals I have abandoned and improve myself physically and mentally.”
Tomorrow is 9/11 and Sweet Little Bloodhound, all based in the NY area, all have our own stories as to what happened that day, one beautiful September day – Crisp air and bright blue skies, I walked out of the train to smoke and burning papers raining to the ground on Wall Street as I dodged my way to the office. This song marks my journey and I am releasing it to you to honor all of us and our memories of what happened before and what came after – more beautiful September Blues- this song is called
The Camera Fades

In honor of Sept 11- Sweet Little Bloodhound will be playing a special show in Northampton, MA tomorrow from 4-7pm at The Deck – it is Free and it is outside and it will be a beautiful September day.
Thank you to all, who have come and supported us this Summer and who are reaching out and shouting out to us on social media. We are grateful for your time and your presence with us on this journey.
Love from the doghouse-
Devlin, Jibrail, Shanelle, Olivia, Tony, Buttahs, and Bishop
Here are the lyrics if you would just like to read them
When the towers fell
We learned for ourselves
That nothing comes for free
And there’s a price for liberty
The firemen, who rushed the gates
The police force, who keeps us safe
The child at home, who no longer waits
The people that we lost that day

What you did not see at home on your TV
And what you did not hear as the nation filled with fear
The sirens that never ceased
The emptiness that filled our streets
The landmarks we’ll never see
A city chopped off at the knees

The camera fades, but the souls remain
The wounds may heal, but we’re never the same
Our innocence was lost
We’re still totaling the costs
As soldiers sacrifice
I guess freedom has it’s price

Now the question is
Where were you when they hit
Be careful who you ask
There are wounds behind our masks
I was watchin’ from the Jersey shore
I viewed it from my subway car
I dodged debris from up above
I was trying to reach the ones I love

The camera fades, but the souls remain
the wounds may heal, but we’re never the same
Our innocence was lost
We’re still totaling the costs
As soldiers sacrifice
I guess freedom has its price

Bridge
What once was there has now disappeared
Where souls did roam now a tourists home
Buying lots of crap, like ground zero hats,
but I have to laugh cause NY is like that
Repeat chorus

SLB Summer Touring the Northeast 2016

SLB Summer Touring the Northeast 2016

We have had a blast in the Northeast this Summer, thank you to all the towns and communities that have opened their arms and homes up to us as Sweet Little Bloodhound has hit the road this Summer. Shout out to Lebanon, NH, Newburyport, MA, Greenfield, MA, Redding, CT, Maplewood, NJ, Northampton, MA, Florence, MA, New York, NY, Brooklyn, NY, Seabrook, NH, Salisbury, MA, and all those little road stops in between.  Although we don’t have pictures from every show, you know who you are and how much you rocked the house, no matter how big or small the show, you brought your spirit and we mixed it with a little SLB energy and we created a crazy cocktail of fun and mayhem.  You really helped us rock your communities and keep the smiles on our faces from roadblock to roadblock, you made it all worth it.  We look forward to seeing more of you in the near future as we are rounding out the end of Summer shows and planning our Fall Touring season.   Enjoy the pics and feel free to share them.

This is the Episode you have been waiting for, when you finally get to meet, hear, and listen to the full band.  Although Bishop and Jibrail were not able to make this on-the-air radio promotion, SLB played a great acoustic set and it was only fitting to start here.

SLB Indie Trailer S2 Ep3

As anything thing when there are grand plans for launches, there are always delays, so although the “SLB Indie Trailer – Season 2” officially launched on YouTube a couple of weeks ago, nailing down the actual podcast launch has proven to be challenging, but we are officially a go tomorrow at 12pm with our third episode –  This is our 3rd day on our journey to Floyd Fest, which brings great new music to us as well as some rocking performances by Dirty Bourbon RiverShow and Grace Potter only to be topped with a fire show, where Floyd Fest literally burned down the house.  Please let us know if you are having any difficulties.  We have launched visually on YouTube as well as today, now on all the podcast services.  Thanks for downloading, listening, and sharing.  Feel free to reach out to us directly with show ideas or comments to @SLBloodhound on Twitter & Instagram or on Facebook at DevlinMilesFans
