finished four songs!

i have been a bit absent with this blogging process the last few months because my recording world was sort of flipped up side down a few months and i wanted it to settle before i posted again. i was working with a great producer and after much hard work and time, from both of us, i decided that parting ways was the best thing for me. this being said it meant that the work from the last year was no longer usable and that i had to start over. it was initially upsetting, but in the end i realized that it enabled me the possibility to create anything and everything i wanted. so there it is, a quick summary of where i have been to bring you all up to speed with where i currently am.  Continue reading

Honestly it just feels good to have some forward momentum.  Continue reading

day eight, nine, ten.

Okay that’s it… I was walking home yesterday night and all of a sudden tons of arrangement ideas came into my head for a song that I was really stuck on. I have spent the last few weeks relaxing and waiting (as patiently as I can) for this recording process to start (which is still in discussion mode, not recording mode) and yesterday something hit a nerve which made me realize that I will not wait any longer. I will start writing arrangements and getting as much together as I can so that when we are ready to start I will be that much further ahead. I was trying to wait so that my producer and I could do it together, but, I can’t wait anymore. Obviously, once we are working together things may change with my arrangements, but I need to start working (to keep me sane) and they are something I can work on.  Continue reading
