The Arena Beisl in Wien welcomes Scott Foster Harris!!!

SO…FINALLY…….it looks like I’m playing a show at the Arena Beisl on Monday, the 14th of July.  It’s about time!  I’ve been asked to do shows there many, many times over the past few months by many, many people, but I was never able to due to scheduling.  Well, after lots of schedule mangling, we were able to figure out a date where I was free and, as a result, booked the show at the Arena Beisl!  FINALLY!
I’ve been writing a LOT of new songs…very “dark, haunted blues” oriented songs…and I’ll be debuting a number of them at this show.  So, if you like those “Johnny Cash” and “Rolling Stones” type songs I’ve played at previous shows, you’ll dig these ;)
In addition to that, I’ll be celebrating the upcoming release of my newest League of Gentlemen album with Tracii Guns.  So…I’ll probably play a song or two from that album.
And, to all the LA GUNS fans out there, I’ll FINALLY play one of our LA GUNS songs for you all since I haven’t done that yet at any of my solo shows.  People keep asking, so I figured, “Why not?  I guess it’s time” ;)
And, last but not least, I’ll be celebrating my two-month long break from Jack Daniels by drinking a lot of Jack Daniels ;)  So, if clothes come off and it gets loud, just know it’s all part of the experience…and, of course, we can simply blame it on the whiskey ;)
Don’t be shy, now…  See you all there.
Cheers!

A Dark Symphony

I’ve always wanted to write a terrifying symphony.  Not just a normal symphonic piece, but something that really delves down into the depths of the human psyche and the depths of the human soul and confronts the darker side of people…something that confronts people’s natural fears.  I’ve always found that people are truly themselves when they’re afraid.  It’s a natural instinct….survival mode, if you will.  All the acts and charades are gone.  All we’re left with is the essence of the person.  I would love to find the time to write this symphony that inherently made the listener become and project who they really are…  Cleanse the windows to the soul and see what truly lies beneath…

Your Days Are Numbered…

…So don’t waste a single day letting life overshadow living.  In other words, don’t let the every day stresses, concerns, circumstances, situations, aggravations, and cancelations get in the way of you enjoying the every day sunshine, smiles, laughter, music, tastes, smells, and sounds that surround us and let us know each moment that we’re alive…  That is where the beauty lies.  That is the very essence of living.  It’s in the bitter-sweet taste of that drop of honey we add to our tea.  It’s in that accidental touch of life we feel as a gust of wind cools our faces after a long run…or a long day…or a long nap!  We smell the very essence of life itself when we catch that scent of honeysuckle in the Spring and we’re reminded of a time when we were kids…when life was much ‘more simple’…..all the while never quite realizing that that was indeed the most evolved way to view our own existence…through the eyes of a child…in complete wonder every “day” about every “thing”…when we were true Zen masters of our every day crusades. Smile through the eyes of a being that embraces living…not just life.  Shine on, grasshopper…

Your own personal Wonderland……….

Imagine yourselves a place, an astral plane somewhere “out there,” where very old souls get together and rendezvous to practice and perfect their most effective methods of manifestation…..A members-only kind of place, where whatever you’re thinking of and whatever you think about comes to life in extravagantly vivid colors and sounds, and as the most intricate plots and circumstances…..Where the only limits that exist lie in your ability to imagine what you’ve never before imagined, and in your ability to act in anticipation of its “physical” expression…….A place where you’re untouchable…..Where Nothing is real, yet everything matters…..your own personal Wonderland……………

Born Of The Sun

Resurrected from the ashes
With the rising of the sun
Born again when darkness passes
And a new existence comes

We’re born of the sun, born of the sun

When the promise of tomorrow
Rules the choices of today
Every hour harbors sorrow
And the sunlight fades away

We’re born of the sun, born of the sun

Every day starts over at one
With each passing day we’re born of the sun

The walls of destiny are falling
Never more a slave to fate
The universe is at your calling
This is your life to create

We’re born of the sun, born of the sun

Every day starts over at one
With each passing day we’re born of the sun

Here and now holds all the answers
So open up your mind and ask
Tear away your mental cancer
Come taste victory at last

Every day starts over at one
With each passing day we’re born of the sun

Shades of Blue

Shades Scruff Gallery V2

Open up the still, let the wisdom flow
Tumble down the hill like a drunken stone
Carry me away, show me how to pray
Lead the way as the story all unfolds

Teach me of the old, now, baby
Teach me of the new
Open up my eyes to all the different shades of blue

Shake the apple tree, watch the oranges fall
Let tomorrow be what the past recalls
Gypsy in the sky, velvet flying by
Cover up the lies behind the wall

Teach me of the old, now, baby
Teach me of the new
Open up my eyes to all the different shades of blue

Look into the eyes of the man in glass
Try to see inside the reflection’s past
Windows in our doors, spy holes in the floor
Try to find to cure just as you collapse

Teach me of the old, now, baby
Teach me of the new
Open up my eyes to all the different shades of blue

HEAVEN IN YOUR EYES

Lay me down in a bed of sunshine
Let the breeze carry us for miles
Wear the crown of an angel divine
Part the seas, open up your ocean, drown me in your smile
 
Folding my fingers
Bowing my head to pray
Thankful above
Woman, your love
…it makes me…..
 
Say your name when I see a sunrise
Hear your cries on the whispering wind
Make it rain, baby, empty your skies
Touch me down on the end of your rainbow, show me your gold again
 
Folding my fingers
Bowing my head to pray
Thankful above
Woman, your love
…it makes me…..
 
Fly……………….
I’ve never seen an angel
But if I did I’m sure she’d have your
Eyes……………….
I’ve never been to Heaven
But sometimes I see Heaven in your eyes
 
I can feel your love, I can feel your love, baby   
I can feel your love, I can feel your love, baby   
I can feel your love, I can feel your love, baby   
I can feel your love
 
Shine your light on an empty garden
Sit and watch as the roses bloom
Fresh and ripe, girl, you know I’m starvin’
Gonna taste and devour your kisses ‘til every one gets consumed
 
Folding my fingers
Bowing my head to pray
Thankful above
Woman, your love
…it makes me…..
 
Fly……………….
I’ve never seen an angel
But if I did I’m sure she’d have your
Eyes……………….
I’ve never been to Heaven
But sometimes I see Heaven in your eyes
 
Fly……………….
I’ve never seen an angel
But if I did I’m sure she’d have your
Eyes……………….
I’ve never been to Heaven
But sometimes I see Heaven in your eyes

UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS

Univ Consc Post Pic

We are waking up.  Delight yourselves in this morning of Universal Consciousness. 
The Rapture’s bell has rung.
Arise with revelry that this new day bears truth.  Flourish in that flawless moment of sentient existence.
Welcome.
 
This morning, the morning of our birth
This radiant mother, our Mother Earth
Embraces her exiles in her truth
“Here, here, my child, I’m talking to you!”
Her vast volcano ruptures red
Whispering secrets to her dead
Preparing for their resurrection
Bearing her puerile perfection
The Heavens are ready, the horizon is white
“Good afternoon, children, Welcome to Life”
 
Let the whisper bathe your senses
In the summer of sublime velvet
Taste the silk of nature’s witness
As it enters your divine orbit
Take time to be aware
 
Dance a smile into the face of the sun as it shines
Let its rays massage the body of Earth’s perfect creature
The dawn of a new light is at hand
Sink into the warm ocean of your soul’s fruition
Inside awaits eternal wisdom from blind ambition
This is real
 
Grains swirl in bliss in this ecstatic moment
Around the euphoric sensation of sound
The capsizing tides beat out their tribal covenant
As walls of perception come tumbling down
Enchanted explosions of scarlet sing praise
To the golden horizon’s affair with the sea
The infinite canvas upon which each day
Is discovered commissions its paint brush to me
 
There is no escaping hypnotism
