This is a very exciting time. I’ve been playing a tonne of music, and have gotten, irreparably, into the recording of my album. I say irreparably because it’s been 2 years since I did the kickstarter project, and I’ve had a number of false starts since then. I’m not entirely sure why it’s taken me so long. I mean, I think I know, but I don’t know if I can put it into concise words.
And I just tried, but then deleted it, because I don’t feel like talking about that! Suffice to say, I’m back on track and am really excited.
I’ve been performing a lot…I went to that Songwriter ‘Soiree’ (I say!), and then an open mic at the Goodfoot here in Portland, and then a few little getogethers at friend’s houses, and it’s all been snowballing since then. The more I play, the more I want to play, and the more great people I meet, and the more I want to finish my album and give it to people to listen to!
And recording-wise, I set up a cute little recording studio in a storage room in our apartment. See photos. It’s the cutest and nicest place ever. And it’s also the cosiest. I haven’t been in there yet today, and I miss it.
Finally, a fantastic musician, and friend of mine, Miwa Gemini (from NYC) is going to be playing at the Elixir Lab in Portland this Friday, and she asked me to open for her. I go on at 8 pm. I am SO excited about this show. Here’s the facebook invite, for more info.
That is all! I hope to be back with another post soon, with photos of all the Kickstarter rewards I’ll be making! I’m so excited about that too. The sweet.
