Episode 006 - Davy Baysinger

There's a place I like to call "Davy's Porch." Yes, there is a literal meaning (as in Davy Baysinger's front porch) but also one that goes deeper than that; a state of mind that can only be reached by having a deep, soul-touching conversation with Bleach frontman and Slospeak Records COO and A&R Head, Davy Baysinger.

It had been eight years since I last visited Davy's Porch and it was great to be back. I learned a lot about Davy that morning back in early October when I was able to once again sit down with my dear friend and just talk. Yes, I learned things about Davy and his life that I never knew before, little details about how a college illness paved the way for who he would become, but I also learned - or re-learned, actually - how much I love spending time with a guy like Mr. Baysinger. I think that's the first time I've referred to him as "Mr. Baysinger" and I'll admit it....it feels weird.

When I think of Davy, I think about the time we suited up to tend his bees (yes, he's a beekeeper), countless evenings playing Karaoke Revolution on the PlayStation, and an afternoon of mullet-spotting at Paramount's King's Island in Cincinnati, Ohio. But the one thing that stands out to me the most is how he went above and beyond the call of duty when I was going through a particularly difficult time in life.

Eight years have passed. I've gone through fire and Davy has too. Some things have changed; some a little and some a lot. But the one things that hasn't changed is how much I love being on Davy's porch. I missed it and man, it was nice to be back. I hope to get back soon but I've promised myself it won't be another eight years before I do.
