We're getting close! Most of the tracking for the album is
done- 12 songs! Just have to record some harmonies, do some
programming and mixing... My goal was Thanksgiving-that might not
happen- but defintely before Christmas! I'll keep you posted
here, and on twitter. I'm also starting to play out at open
mics every week now.
Well, since my last post 2014 has ended and I am still working on the
new album. I guess I've been busy with things in life besides
music, but at the end of the day I know that's just an excuse.
I did accomplish something musical!...I recorded an EP of my dad's
favorite hymns as a Christmas/ birthday gift. It was a great
exercise in music theory and composition, as most of them I had to
transpose to a different key and rework in my own acoustic style.
It was also great practice in recording at home with my new
audio/midi interface...I really learned a lot. You can hear the fruits
of my labor on my youtube
I have been slowly but surely writing songs for my next album.
I think it is better this way.
to my new website! I wish I would have done this years ago!
I'm still trying to decide it it's too much or how I can
I decided to make a website since I am in the process of
writing some new songs, and just like last time, I want to make sure I
do everything I can to make this album a success. One thing I
thought I could improve was having a real website, and I wanted to make
it myself. I read some books from the library about HTML and
CSS and took an online
course in web design, but ultimately I realized coding from scratch is
amount of work. Thus I discovered and downloaded Kompozer, a
WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get") website builder that is a free
program similar to Dreamweaver.
Right now I've got three songs
completely finished, with several more in various stages of completion.
In the coming weeks I will be hashing those out and recording
rough drafts at home. Then I need to find a bass player and
guitarist, and also find a suitable local studio to record.
hope is to release the album sometime this fall.
