I hope you didn’t just arrive in a happy and energetic mood, not because I don’t want you to be feeling that way, but I have a new song for you and it may just knock you down into sadness territory. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! Now that you know what to expect I’d like to introduce you to the new song, ‘Self Sabotage‘. It’s a song I wrote on piano when trying to conjure demons inside my head. Finding what unique sounds are hidden the dark parts of you is an interesting method of writing that I quite enjoy. I hope this song finds it’s way into the dark part of your heart… in the good way.
It’s with great pleasure and delight that I can announce that It’s All In The Hips has surpassed 250 downloads! This song was performed by my best friend Chris Webb when we were recording at my house a few months back and it’s an amazing feeling that his beautiful creative mind was able to reach so many of you! Thank you so much for listening, downloading, and continuing to support my friends and I as we screw around, get silly, and do what we love to do… Create new sonic experiences for the world.
If you haven’t downloaded It’s All In The Hips yet, you can take a listen to it by streaming it on Soundcloud and if you like what you hear, give it a download with the link provided below!
I can’t believe it’s already been a year since the release of MMXIII! Not only has MMXIII past it’s first year of existence but it’s also been officially downloaded over 100 times! It’s so amazing to me that so many of you would subject yourselves for an extended period of time to my music. The fact you don’t whip your headphones off in a disappointed rage when you listen my stuff makes me happy. Thank you so much!
MMXIII was my first self recorded, programmed, mixed, and produced release. It was very difficult to justify putting out as I was, and still am, very new to everything music creation related. Every time I sit down in my DAW I learn something brand new. A year ago when I released MMXIII I was only 8 months into learning how to play piano. With that being said, I’m still in love with the musical ideas I was able to find no matter how thin, bad sampled, or terribly mixed they are. I hope they can help you and much as they’ve helped me.
Here’s another Improv POV video for you! This short video includes a little bit of snare rolling, double kick, tons of cymbals, and a heavy breakdown on the china near the end. I’m noticing a slow improvement each time I get behind the kit and it feels great to be able to notice progress! I would also like to let you know that drinking beer and playing drums is not an easy thing to do well.
I hope you enjoy the video and check back here at www.TheEndIsNich.com for more next week!
