Snowfall (December Moon) Teaser

And here — finally — is a teaser for “Snowfall,” the fifth and final track off my album Indigo Shades!

The album had a soft release after Christmas, with only 20 copies that all got scooped up by February. Awesome!

These days I’m trying to figure out the most efficient way to get to the next 80 copies, which have left the studio and are now sitting in a box in my parents’ house in Pittsburgh. If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, now is a good time to get in touch with me about buying a copy! Otherwise you may have to wait until I visit the ‘rents in June.

Til then you have your lovely teasers!

 

 

January’s Project Evaluation and the EP

Piano Close-UpIt’s January, which means its time to evaluate my recording project!

The plan has shifted slightly, as plans do when life happens. I was hoping to churn out one song per month, but it turns out that songs — like cats — don’t come when they’re called. However, they do come eventually. Right now I have five complete songs, so that’s where I’ll start.

Instead of a 10-song album, then, I’m going to record a 5-song EP (which is like an album but with fewer songs on it). The titles of these 5 songs are:

“Threnody”
“Icarus”
“Snowfall (December Moon)”
“Fractals”
“Moonflower Lullaby”

I know 5 songs sounds less impressive than 10, but I’m actually really excited for what this means! Instead of focusing on churning out a new song each month, now I can spend the rest of the year learning the recording process and giving each individual song the attention it needs.  It’s going to be a big learning experience for me, which will (hopefully) end with an enjoyable EP for you!

A good plan for a new year. 🙂
