Since the release of Grope, I’ve been working pretty solidly on the follow-up, Turquoise Cyan Sapphire
[although I did take a little detour into Writers Flow – Music For Writing along the way]
I’m really pleased with how the 10 tracks are shaping up and, barring last minute production rethinks
[I don’t think there’ll be any, but you never know]
I’m pleased to be moving into final mixing.
My Facebook followers have been getting links to rough mixes for the last few weeks and I decided to make that more formal by officially compiling a playlist where I’ll keep the latest mix ahead of closing the project and sending it off to mastering:
It’s the first time I’ve been so transparent about the mixing phase, and I’ve got to say it’s a bittersweet decision – driven by a brutal look in the mirror of commercial realities for independent musicians.
I’ll be writing more about where I’m at, but here’s the skinny: people don’t buy music, so why pretend that’s still the model to follow when it comes to my own records? I wish it were otherwise, but it isn’t – so I’d rather not lie to myself
[delusion has never been a comfortable cloak for me to wear]
So, listen away – there’s a tip-jar up there at the top of the page if you want to say thank you – and links to the records if you still want to do the decent thing and buy a copy
[as I do, because #IBuyMusic]
I will, of course, be writing more about Turquoise Cyan Sapphire as I approach release date, and hope you’ll stick with me through the process.
