Sometimes…

Posted on Updated on

You know, sometimes, things just happen the way they do. Don’t you just wish sometimes when something happens, that you can wake up from it and it was all a nightmare?

What if you wake up and the nightmare doesn’t stop………………?

Or when you walk in the 90* sun and still break out in a cold sweat?

These are all things that are ripe for inspiration for some of the best music. It’s always been like that since the beginning of time: the best of man comes when he is in the worst possible situation.

I can’t possibly tell you what nightmare I’m going through, but it’s going to be this way for a long, long time. I wish it weren’t like this. I wish I could wake up and it would all be a bad dream.

Over the next few months, I will continue to push forward with the release of my album, including videos, in addition to pieces of my previous album, “Whispers of Winter”. In the meantime, such pain that I experience will only serve to fuel the next chapter in my musical history, which I’ve already begun. This one is going to be good from what I hear already.

Never give up hope…

Music as a language…

In the studio

I’ve always thought of music as a language. A way for us to communicate. Sometimes, I call it the “universal language”. Right?

Well, I am new to making music professionally. My weapon of choice? The Yamaha Motif XS. All my new music is created, arranged, composed, and mastered on this wonderful piece of equipment.

My main influence? Yanni. Back when he was doing “real” (non-vocal) style music. I love his instrumentals; always have, always will. The new stuff? Not so much.

Growing up in the 80s, I have all the influences of the big artists at that time: MJ (RIP), Journey (back when they had Steve Perry), Toto, you name it. I like to dip into an eclectic nostalgia time to time and get some inspiration.

Well enough talk for now. Hang tight with me while I find a way to upload my music to this thing…
