Weve been in the studio with Jon Berry(Rufio/Runner Runner) recording 3 songs, two of which are going on our forthcoming EP, and one cover song. Only one more day of vocals, and its a wrap! We are going to be giving these 3 songs away for free download because we want everyone to hear what weve been working on so hard over these past few weeks.
Pretty much right after we are done with this 3 song sampler, we are getting right back in the studio with Jon later this month to record the next 4 songs that are going on the EP. We are so excited about all of these songs, and are really looking forward to getting to play them live VERY VERY soon. Patience is a virtue that was not so much bestowed upon me, so i am really anxious haha.
We will be announcing our bands name, the name of the EP, the band Facebook/Soundcloud/Twitter, and every other website we will have on Sunday. We kinda kept everything under wraps for a long time.
Starting over is a scary thing, especially when you felt that you would never again have the passion or desire to be involved in the music industry, but sometimes the moment is just right and everything aligns. This is the absolute best group of musicians i have ever had the pleasure of working or writing with. We're ready to go, and are looking forward to getting our music into your hands!
So myself and my roommate and good buddy Danny Casler were both asked to do private auditions for the producers of the show The Voice. We had a blast singing for them, and who knows what will come of it. There were so many amazing singers, and it was just a really cool experience, so even if neither of us gets picked to go further and compete on the show, it was still a blast.
Aside from that, i am currently working on several projects, and can be seen live next on Sept 25th for a great show at The Roxy in Hollywood. I am playing guitar for my other roommates band Frequency 5 at their cd release show. And this will also mark the first time i have a played a show in Hollywood since October of 2006. Im super excited to get back out on stage, and can pretty much promise this will be a pretty consistent thing happening from now on.
I have taken off so much time from performing, and i really have a bug to get back out on the road, so expect to see some results fiarly soon. I will be working pretty much non-stop writing all new material in all of my free time. And the time im not using for writing/getting better at my instruments, i will be spending building my studio in my house. Lots to look forward to!
I cant wait to share some of these new creations with everyone. Talk soon!
