Just High Enough

It’s hard out there…
Confusing.
I know this white guy who talks like a black guy
I know this jazz lady who used to be a jazz dude!
Mr. Nicole they called him
Badass…blowin’ baritone sax like a hurricane…or hisicane…
Shimicane!
After all, this is America.
Home of the free, land of the brave.
Tell me what’s more free or brave than wearing lady clothes
When you’re a man?
Not much.
It takes more bravery to do that
Than to hate someone for how they look.
So let me buy you a drink at my bar…
Which I have set
Just high enough to let everyone in.

Before his NYC gig last week at Subculture, ALT sat down to have a chat with Pancakes and Whiskey.

“My thing isn’t a fashion or movie star thing, I’m writing songs for people that are thinking and wondering how their life is going to work out and shit like that,”-ALT.
