Original tracks….progress update

Well it’s been a while since my last post and you might have noticed that I’ve not been posting as many new and old mixes up lately. Its for two reasons really – firstly I’ve been so busy with my day job – at the last count, since the end of April I’ve managed 10 separate events, visited 6 different countries and been an usher at a wedding!

The second and probably more concious reason is because of my step towards creating my own material, which as I’m sure you can probably understand is quite demanding and requires a lot of focus.

As way of an update, I’m currently waiting for a couple of fantastic singer / songrwriters to write and record vocals to two of the tracks I’ve created – so that is very exciting. I’m sure once I’ve got their input, the tracks may take a slightly different route to their current state, but they will be developed to totally fit the vocals that they lay down for me…..I’m hoping to be able to bring you more news on this in a couple of weeks.

At my last count I think I’ve got 5 other decent grooves going on just waiting to be developed by vocalists but I’m waiting on these first two and then I will take those others to the next stage.

Also, whilst all this is going on, I’ve got to do some boring stuff like register for PRS and MCPS so that I can get paid properly if my stuff ever gets out there and is bought on iTunes, played on radio, etc. Believe me, its a complicated business!!! Luckily, I’ve got some fantastic people around me – thanks Jim Jackson, Shaun Gallagher, Jamie Taylor, Geoff Allman, Mark Goddard, Colin Curtis, Terl Bryant & Dee Majek (and anyone I’ve forgotten to mention) – to give me some great advice not only on the tracks I’m developing but also on the business side too…

Couldn’t do it without you guys 🙂

Finally, I’ve started writing my own material…..(gulp)

People have been saying it to me for a few years that I should start writing my own material – well, a month or so ago I started having a go and surprisingly to me, I’ve really enjoyed the process and it seems to be all I want to do at the moment. Hence the radio silence on here for a bit…

To date, I’ve got 7 or 8 tracks on the go – some much better than others and although I think a couple of them are really strong now, I’ve no doubt they will evolve as the vocals come in…

Speaking of which, I’ve got a couple of fantastic singer / songwriters that I’m working with to provide the vocals – I’m really excited and want to tell you all about them but I’ve just got to keep a lid on it for a bit longer.

Anyway, the proof will be in the pudding (as they say) so I don’t want to talk about it too much in case they don’t quite hit the spot….but feedback that I’ve had so far has been very positive so I’ll keep my head down and keep working hard at them.

Watch this space…or shouldn’t that be ‘Listen’ to this space????
