Well what do you know ? Somehow my writer’s block has turned into seven new recordings in the last three weeks. Songs seem to come in spurts for whatever reason. Even the first five songs I did for this project I did in in about 2 weeks in January and February.
I mentioned the songwriter’s show on April 3. To update it went well. I played “I’m Coming Around,” “I Suppose,” “Disillusionment,” and “Bedroom Of The Sun” in that order with just my acoustic. I got relatively good comments, most of them saying though that I needed to write a few happy songs. Soon I should have the recordings from the show, and maybe one will even get on the air (Todd Burge who runs the show submits a compilation to the university radio station).
As far as finding a “permanent position” in the music industry, I am still searching, but I am focused more on finding a center of activity before I can do something like that. I guess I am just waiting for the right opportunity to present itself. Hopefully it will.
And finally I have uploaded low fidelity mp3s of my first two albums. I am limited on space so they will have to suffice for the time being. Down the road hopefully I will have more space to work with.
