getting there!

ok so this has been on my to-do list for almost 20 years! lol, i know. im slow. thats why im actually pretty excited right now and felt i should share. for real, its never too late! dont give up!

i have 10 songs recorded and hoping for one more but if not, im working with these 10. my next steps are crafting it into an album. i.e. song order, interludes, mixing, mastering. i want the album to feel very focused. where its less about me and more about what i want the album to say.

i just spoke with 2 photog friends about getting photos done. then, the last part is putting together the booklet. yes, in the modern day of mp3, i want a booklet. like i said, ive been wanting this for a long time so it just wont feel right if i cant pull out the sleeve and look through it.

the best thing i ever did was give myself a schedule. it doesnt matter if you dont keep it. setbacks happen. the key for me was to revise the schedule instead of giving up on it. i always had a problem with beating myself up for not keeping the schedule. i made my schedule my enemy but im finally learning how to be friends. make the time and time will be on your side.

i had another issue with wanting it to be perfect. this would be the primary cause of my schedule delays. what helped with this was to force myself to do something, anything. id book studio time in advance and itd force me to come up with something. then id have something concrete to bring home and improve on, share with others. proof of my investment. for me, making an album has to be like living. its a record of the journey. i didnt come out of the womb perfect and im not perfect today. thats all i need to capture.


Euphemia Whatever it takes

Well said!

That is very inspiring, both in terms of writing a schedule ( don’t know why I never thought of that before!) and in terms of forgetting perfection. People tend to have quite strong and differing views about music so it can be hard to find the courage to let go and put it out there. Good,luck with everything
