Today’s blog is just going to be a quick little update to let you all know how things are going with all the projects I’ve been working on.
Yes, I’ve fallen a little behind on the to-do list, but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean I’ve fallen behind on making music.
Nope, during this little bit of radio silence from me, I’ve been working hard on a number of things. Most importantly, album #3 is WAY past the 50% finished mark. It’s currently sitting at 23 started tracks, 14 of which I’m almost certain will make the album. That leaves two more perfect tracks that need to somehow materialize before I start focusing in on going back and finishing each song to get the album done (16 songs is sort of a tradition for my main albums and will continue to be). Expect to see a lot of news about the third album, and hopefully some more tastes of it too over the coming months… If you haven’t already listened to “Burnout,” the first track I’ve released from the album, check it out on my Soundcloud page.
Along with album work, I also did music for a few projects and have been finally actively engaging with music libraries, which are one of the better ways to make a living in this business, although something I’ve been putting on the back burner for far too long. Thanks to that work you should be hearing some of my music in some TV shows soon. Hopefully some of them I can let you know about ahead of time. But regardless, that stuff is happening.
I also am seriously backlogged with This Thing Rules reviews. I have demos made for two of them right now (so I just need to write the actual review), but I have four more to do after that. I definitely plan on finishing all six by the end of the year. I have big plans for This Thing Rules and am working to grow it for 2017 and start taking on bigger software and putting more into these reviews. The feedback on them has been great and useful and I want to make sure everyone knows that I am listening… and I want to make sure that YOU are all listening.
I’m also in the planning stages of some EPs that will end up being little collections of even more music that will get released in between albums. I’m not going to go into detail on those right now, but it should be a cool series and allow me to release a lot more music for all of you. I’m currently debating releasing the first one before or after the next album. We’ll see what happens…
Lastly, I’ve been writing some music video ideas for songs from the next album that hopefully can be turned into reality. I have a few already that I’ve been discussing with some of my collaborators and we’ll see… There could be some really cool videos coming soon. Fingers crossed.
That’s it for now. Thanks for hanging in there. Thanks for listening. If you haven’t already, you can check out all the This Thing Rules reviews and listen to the music demos I include in each one at the This Thing Rules Archives. I’ll be back really soon with my review of The Riser from Air Music Tech. Now it’s time to get back to working hard.
