First We'll Shoot, Then We'll Surrender Our Seconds

'Xochimilco' album

So, I have finally released my first set of music. The release came out earlier this year, but it's gotten some nice feedback. I generally do all this stuff for myself (that deep disgusting personality that requires it all to go out in a bang), but I've enjoyed it so far. I've gotten pleasing critiquing from a local Upstate Soundscape, which is to say that I give thanks to the person who took their time to do so. You can feel free to head over to their site to check out the review from early October.

It's been a while since I posted an update, but that's mainly due to my laziness and occupied schedule. I've been working on new stuff and have been trying to write something at least every week. There can be times where the well of inspiration is dry, but it eventually comes to me. The music is within the same area, but folks will notice some change. It isn't exactly finding that certain "niche", but that I like to dive into branching territories and try to work with them. I'm a very cautious person and that applies to everything. If I'm comfortable with something then I'm most likely to settle into that scenario while dipping my toes in some other area. In this case, I'm doing that with my music. Some would say that my first album holds a concept of sorts, and they'd be correct. There's more to the songs than openly shown (even titles tell a story in their own), and I'm completely willing to reveal them all as time goes on. I guess it would be strange to sing about flying whales and kitchen gloves without explanation, wouldn't it?

In the meantime, I'm still working on music. I've been listening to new sounds and artists that I wish I previously encountered in my earlier youth, but discovery is the most amazing thing about the world of sound. My current plans for my follow up album are to generate a solid amount of tracks. I truthfully enjoyed my long tracklist for 'Xochimilco', and I tend to do the same for this new one. The boundaries are set, and the goals are being met. I'm quite excited to work harder on this one and to create the personality for the world 'Xochimilco' had forged. I'm still weak, still shy, and still romantic. These things affect my creative process and I must display it the way I feel appropriate. This follow up album will do exactly that.

Awkward feelings.

On a side note, I appreciate all those who still listen to my music and give me feedback. I'm also excited to be working on future projects with some of those folks, and I look forward to it all.

I know I haven't posted anything in a few months, but I'm going to plan on keeping this thing up to date more often. If you do check this out...

Keep checkin' in!

Until next time;
