Been a while since I posted; been very busy, a lot has gone on in between now and the last time I wrote.
In between then, I’ve been busy upgrading my studio. New equipment, studio monitors, power racks, sound effects plugins and libraries. It takes a while to get them all set up and for you to get used to them. That being said, I still have a few more things to go, and I’ll be done.
All the while, I have not stopped making music. I am again 5 songs into a brand new album. So far, this is no deviation from my original style. It’s “more of the same”, but better. I’m quite sure you all will like it. Maybe soon I will post a clip or two for you to listen to.
In the meantime, I’m glad to see that everyone is enjoying my previous album efforts, like If You Were Here and One And Only. I’m happy to report that my music is indeed getting playtime worldwide, to include Japan, South Korea, Australia, and South America, just to name a few. It means a lot to me, and I hope that my music is changing someone’s life for the better. Even just one is enough for me.
Until next time!
Continuing on with a track a week, this song is called Summon the Dawn. It is the tenth track off my new album If You Were Here. Enjoy.
This song is called Beauty of the Forest. It is the ninth song off my new album, If You Were Here, and is a full orchestral score, very peaceful and soothing. Enjoy.
This song is the crown jewel of my new album, the title track: If You Were Here. This song captures the essence of the album and summarizes all the feelings and inspiration I had for this album and condenses it into four and a half minutes. I swear that I myself must have listened to this song over 3,000 times by itself; I’ve had my music app on repeat for so long, and I still haven’t tired of it.
There’s a reason why it’s the title track. I hope you enjoy it, as it is a wonderful dedication, and exhaustively, painstakingly, and intricately composed and engineered.
During the composition of this album, here is where it started to get real.
While I like all my tracks, of course, there are always preferences of some over the others. This song is called Story of Dreams. It is the sixth track off my new album If You Were Here.
This song marked a major shift in not only the way I make music, but the driving force behind it. From here on out, I feel that songs hit their mark without being long and drawn out; they tell a story much more clearly for those who listen. And from here, began a new journey that I’m certain will lead to wondrous reflection and imagination. To you who inspires me, thank you; this one and all the rest are for you.
And without further ado, here is the song.
Keeping with the theme of a track a week, here is Melancholy Melody, off my new album If You Were Here.
For those of you who prefer Apple’s App Store, the new album If You Were Here is now available on iTunes.
