Hi, hope you are doing well. I'm currently in the process of mixing and mastering 13 new instrumental tunes that will be available on March 30, 2023. As many of you know I'm a drummer first, playing guitar, bass, keyboards, recording, mixing, and everything else related to creating music is still fairly new to me. Over the last five years or so I've been dedicated to getting better at songwriting, recording, and mixing and have spent countless hours in the studio learning new things by way of experimenting, failing, trying again, failing, and eventually finding things that sound good, to me. My hope is that they sound good to you as well.
The new album has already had three titles: To The Day, The Victorious Mr. Bitey Face, and now, Hats. Why"Hats"? Well, I had to wear many to be able to create this album so it seemed fitting. Pun intended. The name also refers to the many styles of music on the album. Each song is doing its own thing. Different moods, styles, mixes, instrumentation, it's all over the map. Which is intentional. After years of writing music in the same style for music libraries that provide music for tv & film I needed to take a break from the one-style mindset. With this album I let the song be what the song wanted to be. No preconceived ideas at all.
On March 30, 2023 I'm asking you to buy my album. A huge ask, I know. Your support will be appreciated beyond measure and will help me to continue to create new music as well as to be able to perform it live.
I'm excited for you to hear what I've been working on all these months. I recommend playing it as loud as possible in its entirety while driving down the road or highway! Is there any other way? I've listened to each new mix in my car while I'm going to the grocery store, blasting it for anyone with their windows down along my route. I get the occasional nod of approval which always makes my day.
Before I get back to mixing and mastering I'd like to thank you for being here and invite you to join my mailing list. I'll send you a 20% Off Coupon for the album and a bonus track. Sign up! :)
