Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve posted to my blog, so I thought I’d better get back on the case. Everything is back in full swing now; videos, articles, practise… you name it.
My latest creation has been uploaded to YouTube baring the name ‘Bury Me With My Dreams’. The lyrics for this song were actually written in a lecture I had at ACM, in which we were asked to just write, continuously, about anything that came into our heads.
Considering this, the words that came out are actually kind of worrying! But later I placed the words to relate to the book I’m currently reading, 1984, in which the lead character illegally thinks the wrong thoughts, and is aware of his inevitable death for doing so. It’s well worth the read if you haven’t already read it! Anyway, here’s the video:
I was also approached this week by a business group here at ACM, who would like to use the band and myself as part of their ‘Discovery and Development’ project. This means I may have a few extra helping hands when it comes to marketing and promotion etc. Hopefully, as a consequence, I’ll be able focus more on writing songs and performing them well. Either way, I’m looking forward to working with these guys; they all seem very committed and motivated individuals. I’ll keep you informed on how this goes.
For any musos amongst you, a new article ‘An Introduction To Counterpoint‘ has been added to the site. It’s the first in a series of articles that will explain how to use counterpoint effectively. Each succeeding article will be added two weeks later than the previous. I hope you find them useful!
Well that’s it for now, folks. Stay safe!
