I just conducted an interview with Alicia Parker for DailyMusicRoll.com talking about my music career, as well as having my latest album "A Hero's Journey" reviewed on the website. The links to the interview and review are down below.
There isn't much else to say except... "A Hero's Journey" is now available!!! It is currently available on Bandcamp.com on digital and physical CD formats, and soon will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Tik Tok, and other digital partners.
Thank you to everybody who supported this release. Hopefully reviews and interviews are upcoming!
Finally, I can announce that my new release "A Hero's Journey" will be released first on Bandcamp.com on August 25th, and soon after that, maybe a month, to iTunes and other downloading and streaming services!
The CD is my attempt at trying to tell a story musically, with no lyrics. The beauty (hopefully) of this format is that the story that is in my head may not be the story that is in the listener's head, but the music still fits the narrative that being told. The first 9 tracks comprise the story…
It's been a few months since the last update... blame coronavirus!
"A Hero's Journey" is complete and ready for release soon! The original plan was to release sometime in March or April, but coronavirus hit. Financially I did not want to release the album yet until I was sure I was going to keep my day job. As of now, it looks like I am safe for now, so time to move forward.
The album will contain 13 tracks. The first 9 will contain the story told in the album. As said before, my goal was to tell a…
Recording of the album is almost complete. I actually thought I had finished recording of the album about three weeks ago, and was ready to start mastering the album, getting the album cover, etc. However, I think the album needs one more song for it to be fully complete, so this week I'll start on that. Overall I am very pleased with how the album is sounding, especially the flow from one song to the next telling the story I want to tell.
As the album takes shape and evolves, the dramatic portion of the album is complete. The songs I recorded to tell the story of a hero's journey is complete. The story will be told across 8 tracks with varying moods depending on the part of the story. I am very happy with how the songs came out, and I hope that I have conveyed the moods that I wanted to convey properly to you the listener when listening to the story.
After a technical issue with my equipment, I am happy to report that the recording process for the new album is half completed. The songs in the album have changed somewhat, thereby changing the story that I hope the album is portraying. My goal is still to have this album portray a story that can vary from listener to listener, but still have the music convey a sense of the feelings felt at that part of any listener's story.
I have also decided to add more songs to the new release. Before I started…
After some technical difficulties and glitches with my equipment, I am back working on the album. The next chapter in our hero's journey is Meeting With The Mentor.
I feel that this is the most stereotypical part of any hero's quest. Obi-Won Kenobi in /'Star Wars/', Proximo in "Gladiator", and the cop that helps John McClane in "Die Hard" come to my mind quickly. However, the actual mentor can come in many forms. The wise old man, the father figure, the best friend, and a teacher to name a few.
