Alive and Alone - and slowYou might have noticed by now that I've stopped posting about the Alive and Alone recordings. That's because I burned out badly (literally) trying to record in my house in the heat, then turn u to work feeling refreshed. Also, I've decided to take some time to refine the way I'm playing things.
It's a funny thing, this songwriting/performing/producing thing. Each piece of the puzzle bring its own challenges, and when you're responsible for all of it, sorting each piece out is a challenge. I think the songs are pretty great, but when I get down to the nitty gritty of recording them and producing the sounds, I keep hearing things that could be done so much better. Need to work through all of those ...
Work is a drain, emotionally and physically. I love the job, but it's looong hours of travel to get there and I have no energy left at the end of the day to play music when I get home. Finally, the Australian Songwriters Association's Wax Lyrical events will start in Brisbane next week and I'm the Regional Coordinator, which has taken up bit of my time and a lot of my attention. To top that off, we've decided that I will open the show by way of breaking the ice and being the first to be critiqued by my peers. At least that means I have to do some practice ...
I will get back to Alive and Alone soon, though, so watch this space.
