This weekend we bid a farewell to our friend and Scenery member, Seth. On mid-day Saturday, he took a U-Haul and drove seven hundred miles to Berkeley, California to live out his dream of designing jewelry under his own brand with the two people he loves the most.
I was always in awe of how effortless Seth makes things look, be it music, jewelry, painting or drinking a giant raspberry flavored beer. He is always encouraging, eternally positive and generous nearly to a fault.
I’m glad we live in the future and seven hundred miles isn’t what it used to be. I even hope we can all still collaborate on music no matter where our lives lead us.
What does this mean for Scenery? I don’t know, and frankly, who cares. Scenery was never really a band, a music group or an art project. Honestly, it is just an excuse for a group of friends to work together on something they love doing. The four of us will be making music in some shape or form for the rest of our lives. I’m thrilled to think about what the future holds.
