No Bones About It
From construction worker, to waiter, to deli manager, TP Seed never loved what he did until he started writing songs. At age 30, he got a guitar and taught himself to play. He sometimes got together and played with a bunch of guys at a tile and marble warehouse. They played a lot of covers. But, he was never very interested in playing covers - he wanted to write his own songs. And once he did, it changed his life. 'Writing songs allows me to express myself. Most of the time, I don't know what the song will be about until I am well into it. I usually start with a first line or a chorus and build it from there,' says Seed. He used to play when his wife was at work and he had the house to himself. Since his daughter was born in 1999, there isn't that time in the house anymore. It is now hard to separate himself from everyday life. So, he started renting space in an old warehouse about a mile away. The studio has a lamp, a chair, and an end table. But it doesn't have much heat. 'In the winter, I wear my coat and hat, but I don't last long before my fingers get too cold to play,' says Seed. He goes through writing spurts. There have been weeks when he hasn't written a single song and there are periods when he writes something new every day. The day after his baby was born, he left the hospital to run home and take a shower -- and write a song. TP Seed's music is very listenable. It has an honest, you-can-understand-every-word kind of sound. It's wide appeal ranges from the bar ballad '100 Proof' to the wedding ballad, 'Proclamation of Love'. From the daydream in 'Call It Fantasy' to the nightmare in 'Innocent Ones', TP Seed will strike a chord with almost everyone.
