about

High’s And Lows is the story of how I left everything behind and moved to Hamburg Germany. A few years back while in a deep meditation I heard a voice say to me “Don’t abandon Europe”. It was so loud and clear I couldn’t ignore it. A few months later my buddy Rico, who was living and playing music in Hamburg, emailed me saying he needed a good guitarist who could sing in English without an accent. I thought that would be awesome, but how? My fiancé was my girlfriend of 5 years at that point, we were deeply rooted in a house that I had built an extensive studio in with roommates and a dog. But the thought persisted and I was driven to make it happen. I realized that while my life was good on the outside my day to day wasn’t stimulating me and this was an opportunity I couldn’t ignore. So we sold everything, transferred the lease to our friends, got our dogs paperwork in order and made it on a plane to Germany with as many bags and guitars as we could carry. Three days later I was onstage playing a 3 hour gig. It was awesome. High’s and Lows is about the adventure of getting there. Whatever and whoever came my way, I would embrace it all because beyond the Highs and Lows of the experience I knew I’d be ok.

Highs And Lows
Music & Lyrics By John Zay

I took a chance and left one day
Sold all my stuff and walked away
A voice inside kept me on track
I can’t believe it when I look back

The life I built was ready to go
And who am I to stop the flow

High’s and Lows
I’ll see you from the other side
I know I’ll be ok
Days and Nights
I’ll meet you in the other room
where everything’s all right....High’s and lows

It wasn’t easy to close the door
Goodbye to friends and so much more
But in the madness I heard a sound
It pulled me back down to the ground

Got off the plane and walked on a stage
and without a blink I turned the page

High’s and Lows
I’ll see you from the other side
I know I’ll be ok
Days and Nights
I’ll meet you in the other room
where everything’s all right....High’s and lows

Ohh - Highs and Lows…
It’s my Vitalogy
You can’t be Rid Of Me
I feel like Aladdin Sane

High’s and Lows
I’ll see you from the other side
I know I’ll be ok
Days and Nights
I’ll meet you in the other room
where everything’s all right

Highs and Lows - Days and Nights
Boys and girls - Wrong and Right
Yin and Yang
There is room for everybody in my world
In my world, in my world
There is room for everybody in my world
Highs & Lows…..
