Well, I am in the final stretch for my new album. We are just in post production now and waiting for the mixing and mastering to be finished. My first single from the album is due to release mid December.....so keep listening! :))
Well this should be the last month in the recording studio, with the exception of finishing touches to my songs. This process is a lot longer then I originally thought so I really have no idea when my new music will be available. This industry really is a lot about "strategy". When to release the album, do we release one song at a time, when to send it to labels or radio stations. There is so much to learn! I am so grateful to have some major players in my court guiding me along the way. Stay posted there is new music coming and it is my best work. An introspective album about me and my experiences. Yes at 16 I have had some battles to overcome. My songs tell my story. I can't wait to share it with the world!
I just got home from spending two very long but very productive days in the studio recording new songs for my upcoming album. 3 songs done....5 more to go....There is nothing I'd rather do then create music! :)
Well, after winning the 10k20 Grant from Rawlco Radio, I have been hard at work. I just finished recording the first song for my album and am very excited with how it all came together. I am so excited to share my music with you all!! stay tuned!
Well it has been an exciting year so far, with my nomination for best "underage recording of the year" from the Edmonton Music Awards, to recently being accepted into the 10k20 project, with a grant to complete an album. I am so excited to get started on this new project and am so grateful to those that supported me to make this happen!
Today I received notice that I have been nominated for "Underage Recording of the Year" - Edmonton Music Awards - for my song Toy Soldier. So exciting!!
Here is is, my new original. I am so proud of this song...have a listen...if you like please post a comment. Thanks to all my supporters...you rock!
Well.... all of the instruments have been recorded for my new original, Toy Soldier. Tomorrow I head back to Calgary to record the vocals. I am so excited for the completed song. My producer has done an incredible job capturing the meaning of the song and directing the musician during the recording. I am truly blessed to have him in my corner!! With any luck my new original will be available soon for upload!
So....Marianas Trench is coming to Edmonton to sing at Rexall October 29. They put a call out to local choirs, asking they submit a video of the choir singing one of their songs for the chance to sing with them on stage! GUESS WHAT? Yep my highschool won!! My highschool choir will be singing back up to two of Marianas Trench's song...on stage...AT REXALL! so exciting. I remember a number of years ago going to see them at a small local venue, the Starlight Room....I am not sure if they even had radio play the...but here we are now and I get to stand on stage with them....can't get any cooler then that. Thanks Marianas Trench for supporting local talent and for making my dream come true!! :D
So I have recently completed my newest song. The song is a rock song and I go into the studio in September to record it! I am so excited about this song....it and its style and genre are much closer to where I want to go with my music then the first song I wrote. Hopefully it will be ready for reverb......mid October! keep checking in, I will post as soon as it is available.
