Quiet few months

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been struggling with a hard decision lately. I know what some of you might think this is: me giving up music. That couldn’t be the furthest thing from the truth. The fact is that I will never give up music. And whenever I say music, I mean creating music.

As a matter of fact, I’ve been trying to figure out if I should stop creating music and focus on promoting what I already have. But then a beautiful melody, a perfect idea, harmony, or feeling practically forces me back to the piano. It’s both a lose-lose and a win-win situation all in one.

I think what will do is devote a healthy split between the two, and not let one dominate the other. I have so much new material to share with the world, but so little time to promote it. Now I fully understand why artists hire managers and promoters.

Stay tuned. Some great music is coming out soon.

I’m back

I’m back.
Now that I’ve migrated back to this site as a foundation, it has in the meantime become much more leaner, better organized, and allows me to keep in touch with all my fans in one central location. Not to mention that it’s completely tied in with all the social networking sites and completely integrated with iPhone and Android devices, looks like it’s time to roll again.

I have another full album ready for release. All that needs to happen is artwork and media. Don’t forget to listen to the new bonus track from my album. Talk to you all soon.

active soon

As this month comes to a close, I find myself thinking more and more of how my next album is going to shape up. The ideas come so fast and overflow so easily; I find it hard to contain myself, but I have to…

So quiet, so very quiet now
So quiet, so very quiet now

This is going to be a great upcoming musical project. Yamaha just released lots of updates for the Motif XS, which will only help me in my endeavor. Some of the things that they released, such as new drum sounds, only serve to provide the basis for my musical experimentation.

In the meantime, I have narrowed down to 2 names for my current album’s title. Also, working on getting the thing copyrighted so I can release it to the world.

Good things to come, really good. At the expense of my feelings, so be it. Stay tuned. A rollercoaster wave of  music is coming soon!!!

Music as a language…

Me in the studio
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…
