Thank you all very much for your ongoing support, two years ago was my last blog until now and many may have wondered why, two years ago in August I unexpectedly took in two amazing children (my niece and nephew) we have had quite a bit of changes and my studio had to be dismantled several times and set up again just as many times, it's been quite an adjustment but one I wouldn't change for anything. The kids are doing great and they have been asking when I would be getting back to the music, I'm pleased to report that the studio has been moved for the last time, and it's mostly set up! I plan to get some new recordings in the next few weeks. While I was gone from the site I was still working on writing music and I hope to have some originals out to you as well. Thank you all for being patient and supportive! I'm so happy to be back!
Many people have been waiting for this song to come out, I sang it across Ireland in O'Conner's Pub and at an adorable Bed and Breakfast, and many other place with many wonderful people. What I found was that many people suffer from depression, it was my goal to give a voice to those people who might want it, and to create a truthful and yet upbeat song to fight depression. I hope you enjoy the first cut preview, I will be adding music shortly.
I am finally going on vacation, and not to see family, I am going to a completely new place, a place of inspiration and lore, I my friends am going to Ireland! I debated for some time about bringing my recording equipment, drum machine, mini midi keyboard, but considering my struggle with bronchitis and my lost voice (which is coming back now) I decided to leave everything behind and force myself into a "no recording" state. I figure by going without being able to record by the time I come back I will be bursting with inspiration. I already started not one but two new songs, even without a voice I can still write. One is called Battle Depression, and the other I have not named yet, although I did get a basic drum and guitar track down, it is not timed well enough. So my friends and fantastic fans, I am going away for 10 days, and when I come back I will be re-recording everything on a professional level, I will be adding new songs of various sounds, and I will be ready to take the world by storm, because this is my dream and I will not settle. This is my passion, my dream, my driving force, it is my happiness, my soul, every song sung has a piece of me within it. I settled long enough, I was "realistic" long enough, now I travel to another land filled with myths and legends to rejuvenate, replenish, recover and relax and return ready to give you more of myself, to give you more of what I can do and to show you that I can do so much more than you have seen. I love you all for your support, encouragement and love, and I am sincerely grateful and humbled. Follow your dreams!
So many of you know I am work several jobs and going for my Masters degree, and still trying to keep up with everything, this is leading to a bit of insanity. With the creation of Linger Lips I found myself so caught up in the desire to make more music, and polish existing music, that I can't seem to sleep, I wake up thinking about posting songs, and today I cam across the Reverbnation Store option, and that got me all worked up, I am thinking of all the designs I can create for just this one song! One song! It only takes one. I read somewhere that teh worse thing an artist can do is base their success off of one project, how true that is! The same writing also said don't expect your family and friends to be supportive and like what you do, I sure wish I read that years ago! Today I have a great network of supportive friends and family and wonderful fans like yourself and I can not express how much that means to me. I hope you all pursue you dreams, and I hope your dreams come true. There is no substitute for hard work and experience, and sometimes you just have to go out and get it done! So I am sleep deprived, a little insane (I know a little? HA) and obsessed with music, music, music! I am hoping that now is the time. Thank you all for your support!
So here I am, and here you are, so what is the plan. Well, Between my three jobs and school it's been rough going, and my time for creative outlets (aside from web development that I do for one of my jobs) has been slim, but the ideas for songs keep ringing through my head and I have a burning desire to reclaim that part of my soul. So the plan? Right yes the plan, the plan is to get some new material up and out to you, yes you the one reading this, or is that me? I could go on a tangent but I will try to stay focused. The plan is to get new music up in the coming weeks, I have about 21 songs waiting for me to add finishing touches and record and a few more floating in this head of mine, wait that is not all, my master plan to take over the world requires your assistance, I need you, yes you again, to follow me here, on facebook, twitter and everywhere else you can (just don't try and follow me in a car it won't end well :p). But wait there is more! Errr, maybe not, let's see...take over the world...FB, Twitter....adding songs....I think I covered it! For now, let it begin! MWAHAHAHAHAHA! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAhAHAHAHAHA! :) Much Love to Ya Michol
