I’ve completed all songs for the as-of-yet untitled album. Last night I finished up my last edits and will now be moving on to mixing each song. The last time I put an actual effort into mixing a song was in 2013 so I’m sure this going to be an experience. Maybe it’s like riding a bike…
I’ve been able to find time to work on the album a little each night. I had been unsure if I’d have enough material for an album but I’ve put together 7 songs so far that will be included. Current work has been consisting on writing leads and finishing up the drum tracks. There are a couple of tracks where vocals would sound good but I’m going to stick with my original plan of creating the entire album myself.
I’ve been working on writing and recording material for a new album but progress is slower than I anticipated. The new release will likely be an EP rather than a full album. While I’m not ruling a full album out completely, unless I gain a huge spark of inspiration in a short amount of time it just doesn’t seem feasible in order to make the release by Sping or early Summer.
I’d really like to work on this song some more. All of my songs have always been instrumentals but I’d really like to get a vocalist to work on this with me. I could instead record the vocal melody lines with guitar but I don’t think it would have the same impact. Who knows. Maybe.
No, I’m not referencing the Staind song. It’s referencing the fact that I haven’t released any new music in nearly a decade. I’m proud to say that I’ve been working on some original music in the last several months as well as the beginnings of a cover song. Basically the only time I have a chance to work on writing and recording songs is after my kids have went to bed and on the weekends (#dadlife).
