It is getting close to that time that we live for as musicians ... the promotion and release of a new record! I am so excited to roll out new branding, content, songs, images, videos, and most importantly A NEW RECORD over the next few months. There are so many cliche things that I could say as a musician, about how these songs are my best ever, and they are really important, but I think more than all of that, I am happy that this record is everything I hoped to accomplish as an artist.
For those of you that have followed me since the Vintage Blue days, you know how much I love variety in the songs that I create. My ideal record cuts a wide swath of styles and sounds. I want the listener to be immersed in a touching ballad, before bopping their head to a pop song, and then throwing up rock horns while safely headbanging to a rock anthem. All the while, I want the emotions and messages of the lyrics to be clear enough to be understood, while also being balanced with enough ambiguity, that the song can be accessible to anyone.
Thanks to the gents at Alpine Red Studios, we have accomplished all of this, while also making songs that I love. I spend a lot of time driving around the country, and I have listened to these songs while driving alongside the Mississippi, under starry skies in the Rocky Mountains, and on the beaches of New Jersey and California. I think you guys are going to love them ... and it is time to start getting the word out!
