On the 16th of march 2011, a good friend of mine passed away unexpectedly at the age of only 33 years old. The shock not only devastated his family, his wife and little daughter that were left behind, but also so many friends who came far and wide to pay their last respects to him. I was at work when a friend of mine called me to tell me the news, so by the time I came home I went upstairs and for an hour straight kept writing until this tune was done. The lyric is pretty self explanatory.
On the 25th of May 2011, I released my first digital album of selected songs that I had recorded over the years in my little home studio into the unsuspecting world. The response was positive and more heart warming than I dared to imagine, so with that in mind, I began working on new music that I intended to release just a year later.
However, several things, such as my day time job, interfered and caused significant delays until I found myself unemployed halfway through November 2012. The perfect time to begin setting out the plans I had in my head, something I can finally share with all of you.
Working in my home studio taught me several things in recording techniques, but also showed that I can’t produce professionally with the current setup that I have, nor that I know everything. So I’ve decided to record as much of the keyboards, guitars and bass in my own studio and to have the drums and vocals be recorded in a professional studio where I can also have the production done.
Very soon, I hope to have a full plan where you guys can help me make that dream come true and record ‘Shifting Mirrors’. I can’t give any details as of yet, but I can tell you it will involve a Kickstarter project.
To show you all my gratitude for all the support I’ve been given so far, I am making this free download available of ‘Parting The Seconds’, one of the tracks that will be featured on ‘Shifting Mirrors’. Head over to my bandcamp page ( link below), enjoy the music and thanks so much for the support so far!
