Can’t say I’ve ever legitimately had it before until now. And I’m going to be honest, it’s really annoying, haha.
On a related note, I’m constantly on the fence about my music writing style. I have some friends that write these gorgeous, poetic songs that take a while to figure out. They have deep meaning and are rewarding to write and listen to. Mine are pretty straight-forward, and while there’s nothing wrong with this, I get a little insecure about how much I’m revealing. Then it could get too shallow and the focus is taken off of the music. Ehh.
I have two songs in the works - both are half-done and I keep trying to figure out what in the world I want to do with them. I’m so indecisive, I keep moving lyrics around and switching up melodies and changing my mind about everything. I also have another one rolling around in the old noodle that I’d like to write about my first relationship - being young and stupid, naive, happy, etc - but again, I don’t want to cross into Taylor Swift territory…that’s a great fear of mine. I’ll keep chipping away at it I guess.
It’s so close I can smell it! Only two more tracks to finish and then it will be done!
The EP is officially called “Nice Songs for Nice Friends” and it will feature 5 songs that I’ve written! I’m so excited! :) My dad has been hard at work with recording and arranging and it’s going to sound so crisp. I’m thinking another week or so?
It will be available on Bandcamp and in person! It’ll probably be somewhere in the $3-5 range. Also, there’s a possible music video in the works? ;)
Here’s one of the songs (which I also do with Son of the Sea) called Sooner or Later.
So My friend keeps telling me to make her a cd of me singing her lullabies (hehe) but I’ve been thinking a lot about that and I think I want to make an album-ish. Nothing really fancy or over-produced, but I have about half a dozen songs written that my band probably won’t ever learn (because I don’t want them to, ha) and I want to have them recorded somewhere. Soooo.. :) we’ll see how that goes! If it ends up going well, I might have to have them available at future shows.
TL;DR I’m working on an EP that hopefully will be available in the next month! :
I finally got one going!
Since I often talk about/post songs on my regular blog, I thought it would be slightly more efficient to start a whole new one just for the tunes.
So here it is. Enjoy.
