Hey ya'll! GUESS WHAT? THE ALBUM IS COMING OUT!
I'm super excited. I'll post a link here when it's out!
It's going to be a DOUBLE ALBUM! All the songs have been newly MASTERED for the album release!
Hey! I've just finished a NEW song! I just want to change one thing and then I 'll upload it to the site and to sound cloud! I'll post the sound cloud link here when I'm done :)
The new song is called Fall & Return (You'll See). It's about falling away from what we know is right, then coming back, something we all tend to do sometimes. I look forward to you hearing it! Remember, everyone, feel free to comment here or make posts in the ER room about anything you'd like to talk about, like your own songs that you've found "emotional relation" in! :) I'm still thinking about how to get the ER forum to allow anyone to edit. We shall see what happens :)
I love you all! Hopefully I will get more music done today. If not, there is always tomorrow!
At the moment it's actually very late here, so it's been a while since I've done my music for the day, but earlier today (actually yesterday, since it's after midnight) I made some decent progress. I finished laying down guitars for a new upcoming song clued True Love. The song is going to be a soft song with a really emotional punkish vocal splitting through. I think you guys will really like it. In the process, I also fully laid out the song structure, and I was happy that it comes in at a safe, friendly 3:40 or so. I also added the bass and sequenced the drums, a surprisingly shorter process than one might expect for a song, since most of the song simply has no bass or drums. However, as is usual with these softer, "simple" songs, I spent a lot of time recording multiple guitar takes, to get things just right. It's with these songs that multiple takes are all the more mind-numbing-- keeping the mood and the sincerity of instrumental while attempting to tap into a sort-of "robotic" precision, all the while stopping and repeating the same seemingly simple part that you can't seem to get right. Ah, the music production woes. Little too much 5k? Agree.
I've got two more songs, a new song in my familiar style (Fall & Return (You'll See)), and another that I'm trying to make into a country rock track (Chasing After You)… And all only need vocals! :O We'll see what happens ;)
Today is the day I've created this site. We shall see where it goes from here. God bless it! :) I've got so many instrumental tracks sitting around on my hard drive, and I'm hoping I can link my sound cloud to the site. Also, I've got three upcoming tracks which only have vocals remaining! :D I am so excited! I hope that someday this could be an actual band, and not just me. I am in prayer about the direction God wants for my life. May God bless all our futures! Best. - Stephen.
