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.
i have spent the last 7 or so days recording in my friend’s studio here in brooklyn where we have completed 4 songs so far. some new and some old. this studio is a perfect space for me. it is comfortable and inspiring and i really feel like i can take my time and make something i am proud of. since this record has taken a lot of time already i could easily feel rushed, but instead i feel the opposite. i have surrounded myself with friends and talented musicians to make the rest of this process fun and exciting. there is no pressure and after a year of putting pressure on myself it feels great!
i have another two/three weeks booked later this month and next month so i am hopeful that the recording of “bell choir coast” will be finished by the end of april. after that mixing and mastering will take place and i will put a few songs on my indaba page to allow collaborations with fans and artists.
i will post songs soon so stay close!
