Recordings from Town Crier 10-6-09 band practice now available

October 7th, 2009

I’ve decided to try recording my band (Town Crier) each week at practice and publishing MP3s.

These will be temporary — once I get a new batch each week, I’ll remove the old ones.

At any rate, this week’s recordings are currently up at http://listapp.ciesurplus.com/jeremy_temp/ and include:

  • Boni Maroni
  • Running Down A Dream
  • Unsigned Letter
  • Have You Ever Seen The Rain
  • Hot Number
  • Angel Eyes
  • What If I Came Knockin
  • Just Got Paid
  • Mr. Jones
  • Foreverman

Keep in mind of course that they’re practice recordings — there are mistakes, and there is no editing.ย  It’s just a live recording.ย  The whole idea is just to have new music to listen to.ย  Enjoy!

Ok obviously I have disappeared for a while, and honestly I will probably not be doing much here for a while. I just thought it would be nice to drop a line and kind of update things.

For the many of you who don’t know, I am getting married — in August (2007) and between my quite occupied social life and the very significant amount of work I’ve had to do lately (no regrettably of course) I really have not had much time to do musical anything. In the last few weeks, however, I have picked up my guitar a few times and again I am getting some tinges — ideas on maybe a new album. (Don’t expect too much). The idea, however, is to work up some very rocking album using lots of finger tapping and heavy rock guitar, combined with a complementary banjo, overlayed with some awesome philosophical theme that I have yet to come up with.

Hey it will probably be a while, but here I am, still alive — on my grandmother’s birthday and my 5 year college graduation anniversary. I hope everyone is rockin and I hope soon I am again too ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok so it has been a severely long time since I updated anything!

Honestly it is because not much has been happening … a lot has been going on in my life, moving, new g/f (not so new anymore) etc. and anything musical has kind of taken a back seat. Of course, looking back on things, this time of year is always kind of lethargic for me musically. I think I’m ready now to get back into the swing of recording TSOTSS, and maybe even work on some new stuff, but anyway I am going update some other things that need updating and hopefully keep on top of things here again. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by.

I just finished recording “Hope (The Nightmare)” and it too is a boorish piece of unexciting pop with absolutely no listenability. This album sucks, and is going to be a pain in the ass to listen too, and I hope I can finish recording it and get it over with so I can get on to making some music that isn’t candy melancholic filth. Update terminated.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day ! … It’s been a while so I thought I’d post some updates. I celebrated my mom’s birthday last night by playing Open Mic … you know totally different than my typical Thursday evening. I played a pretty good set anyway … one of my best performances by at least one count ๐Ÿ™‚ I think my mom, stepdad, and granddad agreed but it’s hard to tell. Not really their style of music anyway.

I have the first four songs of TSOTSS recorded, although I will likely need to redo the acoustic guitar on “Appreciated.” Recording has gone relatively well, considering, and the final products are excellent. I haven’t budgeted my recording time terribly wisely, however. It’s the time of year when things start to get hectic, and I have a lot on my plate as of late. Hopefully, I can get it all together and get another two or three recordings kicked next week. I’ll let you know.

I guess it’s about time I passed along some news? Well there really isn’t all that much. I’ve been playing the Open Mics just about every week … I missed February 9. This week was really good … I felt like I sang and played very well and wish I had a recording. The audience was very attentive and quite large for what I have been encountering. I didn’t hang around long because Cecily and I were both tired and needed to get home and go to sleep. It was still after 1 before we got to …

As some of you know, I have started recording “Two Sides Of The Same Soul,” and, as of today, have completed track 1: “A Dream.” So far everyone who has heard it has really liked it, and it is honestly my highest quality recording to date. It sounds very good, and somehow still maintains the feel of the original demo. I am very pleased with it. I’m not sure when I will continue with the rest of the album, but I’ll let you know as I make progress. I’m guessing I’ll be ready to release it by late summer–I am putting a lot of attention to detail into these recordings. I want them to be as perfect as possible … after all I am eventually going to want radio airplay of them.

Anyway the lofi of “A Dream” is up so you should check it out. Until next time …

Things have been going pretty well with local performances. I’ve been playing the Open Mics at Coalie Harry’s every week, with no plan on stopping. Nothing has come of any band opportunities yet, but it is a lot of fun doing what I’m doing, so I’m going to keep at it.

I am delayed on my recordings just because for some reason I can’t get motivated to do them. I am not really sure where exactly to start, but several of my new songs are beginning to grow on people so the outlook is at least positive.
