It has been far too long since I wrote a blog post but I have a good reason. For the past few months I have been writing new songs and reaching out to studios in hopes that another album was in the future. More recently I found an amazing studio and engineer to begin the process. I’m beyond excited to be in the final recording stages of my second solo album.
Coming Through In Waves
The title has changed a few times as the recording process moved forward but this one stuck with me for several reasons.
Firstly, it is absolutely a nod to Pink Floyd and the influence they have had on my music over the years. It also has a deeper meaning for me. For many years I have been fascinated by how frequencies affect people, their minds and bodies. Another great example is the math behind 432Hz vs. 528Hz. I could (and probably will) write an entire blog post just on this subject.
Secondly, the album title is a reminder of the music that has been playing through the air on our planet since December 24, 1906 when during a short program for Christmas, O Holy Night was played on a violin. This is why the album cover features antique radios (photo by El BepO).
Lastly and most personally, it represents the way I write the songs themselves. Some songs come to me in dreams, some as raw ideas and some come to me so fast I can hardly write down the lyrics fast enough. I have come to believe that all art, poetry, books, plays and music exist in the universe and they are awaiting the right person to be the one that gives them birth. I believe that it comes in waves and uses the right person at the right time.
This album contains love songs, songs of self discovery, songs about historical events, songs of hope, songs of fiction and songs of people and stories I have experienced first hand. If you listen closely I have written about you.
I hope that you will join me on this journey and follow along as these songs go through the various stages and ultimately take part when the album is released sometime in January. There are so many of you from all over the world that have loved me and supported me and this is being put together for you. Following me on various social media sites and sharing this journey will help this dream - come through… in waves.
