I planned on releasing a different song to you but I’m experiencing technical difficulties with Logic Pro that’s preventing me from bouncing down a final mix to show you guys. It’s also preventing me from making/saving any new material I may create. So I fired up our good old friend, GarageBand. I promised myself I would release a song so I challenged myself to sit down and write, compose, mix, and release a song in a day.
The point wasn’t to release something quick but rather to prove to myself that the only thing keeping me from releasing new content and creating new art is myself. All you have to do is sit down and play. It’s that easy to make music. Sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of how easy it can be with trying to get the latest programs, gear, VST’s, and plug-in’s to get the best sounds. Sometimes what you need to remember is that the creative part of you doesn’t need any of that. Cometh was made with GarageBand using all stock instruments and sounds. I know it may not be as high quality as previous tracks I’ve released but the song itself stands on it’s own.
So enjoy this creation. In all it’s glory, imperfections, and warts and all. Turn your volume up, press play, and let the experience of music take you.
I have something special for you! It’s a brand new song AND and brand new video all in one! The song is called ‘Embrace‘ and it was inspired by video footage my lover, Becca, took of some nature in Vancouver, British Columbia. Check it out HERE or watch it embedded below. You can also find a link to download the song for completely FREE, so get your download today by clicking the link below!
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 brand new song for you, Hallowed Be Thy Ween! This song is inspired to conjure an auditory horrorscape in your consciousness. Halloween has fast become my favourite holiday. Great people, an excuse to eat unhealthy amounts of candy, and celebrating everything macabre! I hope you enjoy the ride and have yourselves a great Halloween!
