I’m very excited about this album I’ve started.
I’m currently studying abroad in Jönköping, Sweden.
My most recent album was more of a reflection of the moments that I went through during my first year at college last year. Most of the songs on the album, I feel were showcasing the production side of my music. I loaded almost every song with several instrument tracks. I recorded it all in my dorm room in Chicago, and in my sister’s old room in my house in Minneapolis. I guess looking back at it, I feel it was very overproduced. But I’m still proud of it.
There are two songs on that album, Dinosaur Zoo, that are very underproduced, that being A Voice That Matters & The Caged Bird Song. Both of these ballads are just me on the piano. These might be my favorite songs on the album. That’s why I decided while I’m here in Jönköping, since I can’t ever seem to take a break from making music, that this new album will be very organic and completely raw. Just me with either a piano and/or a guitar.
It would have cost an arm and a leg to have shipped all of my music equipment to Sweden. So I could only afford to bring a guitar and a small Tascam-DR07MKII portable stereo recorder, I’d bought this summer, with me. So everything heard on the album will be recorded on that, unless I weaseled my way into some random Swedish studio.
In a few days, I plan to release a song from the album, just to show what I’m working on.
Thanks for any support or promoting any of you are doing. It makes me feel incredible.
I can’t wait till this is reality.
