theBearLogo I lead a little band named "Jearbear".  When I was trying to come up with a name for the band, my wife told me that I should use her nickname for me, that way, when we play on Saturday Night Live, we can get a kick out of whoever is hosting to introduce the band, using her nickname for me.  It stuck. Songwriting is a passion of mine, I enjoy it immensely. Since I was a kid writing songs in my bedroom up until now, being an adult, writing songs in my bedroom, it's always been one of the things that when I do it, it feels like I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing.  I feel like my soul is connected to a higher plane, and that I'm doing one of the things that I'm meant to do here. It's also a chance to play with branding, web design, video, and many other things.  It's a great chance to meet some really great people, and to learn about myself and others around me.
