I'm in the process of wrapping up all of the main work that goes along with getting an album release together. It's been a learning experience. It takes a lot of time. It takes a lot of money. But it's worth it, right? RIGHT? Please someone tell me it's worth it so I can validate my existence.
More importantly now is what comes next. Recording the songs on Daytime Lullaby has been my focus for over 3 months. Now that it's done, what should I do? I know nobody is reading this so I'm just going to think out loud about some of the ideas I have.
1) Punk Rock Piano Bar - I would take requests for punk covers and record as many songs as I can leading up to the release date of Daytime Lullaby (October 25th, PREORDER HERE!) I probably would have enough songs to put out an EP by that time.
2) Start focusing on new original songs - This is definitely going to happen at some point, it's just a matter of when. I really enjoyed doing a more acoustic sounding record with Daytime Lullaby, but in the future I will be recording additional instrumentation on new songs. I did this with the album version of Seeing in Dark, but you haven't heard that yet.
3) Synth Pop! - Man I had fun writing Unfair which I did with a synth app on my phone. I feel like I maybe have a knack for writing melodies for that type of music. I could maybe do a couple originals and maybe a couple remixes of songs I've previously recorded. That would probably add up to an EP as well.
Outside of that, I'll be figuring out ways to promote Daytime Lullaby. I plan on doing some live recordings of me trying to play some of these songs.
So anyway, this probably reads more like a journal entry than a blog post, but I know nobody is reading it, so that's kind of how I am treating it.
