I know it's been a while, so here's a quick update on where I'm at with my new album (spoiler; it's not finished yet!).
I've been spending a lot more time recently on bringing money into the house to pay the bills (principally, I've been focusing on expanding my little business, UK Open Mic) which has taken up the vast bulk of my time.
(and the rest I've been happily devoting to family - my little boy is now officially a toddler - nothing is safe from him!)
Whilst working on the album I have been spending a lot of time studying audio production - via a course I've enrolled in and via books - so that I can improve my skills and do as good a job as possible with the engineering and production side of things.
I've also been trying to learn to play guitar with my fingers - rather than using a plectrum - so I can improve my playing and musical "vocabulary"; i.e. I can try new things!
Both have been immensely rewarding - as I learn new stuff - and immensely frustrating - as I realise how much I can't do!
("Can't do...yet!" as I always tell my daughter!)
But hey, that's life :)
In the meantime, don't forget you can listen to all 12 demo songs for the new album.
Cheers for sticking with me :)
