Songs and albums

February 21, 2017 § Leave a comment

I haven’t released a new collection of original songs in quite some time. That’s due to a number of factors, but mostly because I’ve been working on a ton of other projects. Movies, plays, sound design projects for this and that. But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t writing. There’s one song in particular that I’ve been wrestling with for over four years now. I knew the chorus was strong but never liked the verses. Usually I’d just shelve a problem child like that, but something made me keep pulling it out of the drawer every few months. But I never could crack it. Until tonight. It’s 3:15 am and I just finished a rough demo of it. It was so strange; after almost half a decade, three verses just tumbled out in twenty minutes. And I think I like them this time. We’ll see – I have to give it the “don’t listen for a week and come back to it” test. But I’m pretty confident…I think!

That said, I’m currently recording an acoustic EP, and plan to do a full-band EP some time in late spring or early summer. And hopefully this site will be more active. If you’re still watching after all this time, well…keep watching!
