It’s really been a long time since I gave any kind of update. Like everyone else, I’ve just been real busy–but my music still is real important me. In the past few months I wrote 2 new songs that I’m in the process of recording now. It takes a while to record since I’m a perfectionist. But this time it’s taking extra long because I let my kids play on the piano, and they ended up breaking some of the recording stuff that I needed. It wasn’t on purpose–but still. They don’t really show any interest in my music when I’m practicing unless they are listening for mistakes 🙂 They don’t really have an ear for music, but if they can hear mistakes I guess that kind of counts 🙂
So, I’ll share these songs once they are finished. The songs aren’t named yet. Naming the song is the last thing I do. Even when I send the songs to the guy who masters my music–the songs are not named yet. I mean, I know what the songs are about to me, but that is not the same thing as a name. If you’ve read some previous posts, you know that I generally don’t share what my songs mean to me. My songs can be interpreted many different ways, and there is no “right” answer or “wrong” answer as to what it means. If I were to share what the songs mean to me, it would be the same thing like if I let people read my diary–not happening. It’s just a form of expression and how I feel at that given moment–and that’s basically it. I don’t consider myself a sad person–but I can not write unless I’m in a sad kind of mood. But once the song is started and I have the basis of it, I can continue writing it and I don’t have to be sad. I don’t even know if that makes sense, but that’s how it seems to me.
Anyway, thanks for reading this. I’m looking forward to sharing my new songs with you 🙂
