As yet another year comes to a close, let’s take some time to reflect.
The past few years have been highly difficult. I’m surely not the only one that can say something like that, and not one to say things were really bad for me. I’m certain that others have had much worse. I am grateful and thankful for the things that I have, and am reminded each day to work harder, as nothing should be taken for granted.
2013 was, for all intents and purposes, a good year to me, by comparison to recent times. It is my hope that 2014 is an even better one. I’ll strive for it. We should all.
To close out the year and bring in the new one, I am announcing the titles of my two forthcoming albums. As mentioned in recent posts, I have actually been composing for almost three years, and have never stopped, since the release of my previous album, One and Only. The result is two brand new albums, filled with brand new, original material between them. There are no covers or remakes; it’s all new.
Without further ado, here are the titles of the albums:
Title: Let It Rain (The Great Sadness)
Composed: 2011 – 2012
Title: City of Lights
Composed: 2012 – 2013
Artwork has been completed for City of Lights, with the artwork for Let It Rain to follow closely.
Stay tuned for music clips and general availability, which should happen in the beginning of January.
I admit it’s been a while since I updated the site. Sometimes life becomes convoluted and takes up so much of our time that we forget the important things. I haven’t forgotten.
The music never stopped. As a matter of fact, I’ve since finished another entire album and am again halfway through a new one.
If one thing is constant, it is the pain that all of us feel. It is part of who we are, why we do what we do. It helps to drive us. The problem is that a lot of us do not know how to control it and it drives us to do all the wrong things. And hurt each other in the process.
I wish I could stand here and tell you life is peachy. It’s not. Everyone is searching for that inner (and outer) peace, but it is ever elusive. We are all just pulling shades over our eyes to temporarily mask the sadness. It doesn’t work. You need an outlet.
And this is the reason for my music. It’ll continue.
I’m in the process of moving back to this site, as it’s improved, and quite frankly is a better platform for publicizing my music. I will continue to release more information on the new album, which will be coming out in a month or two.
Thanks for all your support and kind words. I will reward you in the best way, and with the best music.
