Just Gettin' Started
Welcome to my first newsletter! It has been an amazingly busy first half of the year and I think it's time to bring everyone up to speed as to what I'm up to. I have come to learn a tremendous amount about myself, my music, and music as a whole. It was only in January that I started writing again. I went through all of my old writings, took what few lines still moved me and threw away the rest.
With my first song I went into the studio at Northeastern University with a few friends to see what we could come up with. What we ended up with was a rough recording with some rough ideas of a rough song. Along with a mediocre recording I came out of the studio with a whole new outlook on music, especially my own.
Now, only a few months later, I am gearing up to show Boston what I've got. I've begun to form a great band with guitarist Evan Gavry and drummer Gregory Case and we had our first show together this past Tuesday at The Alchemist Lounge here in Boston. The show was a blast and we will be back there soon for any of you who could not make it out! By the way, we are still looking for a bassist if anyone is interested!
I have also been working with Boston producer Flynn at Dooneen Studios (www.flynnmusic.com). We went into the studio together to producer one song to see what we could come up with. The track came out great, "Just Another Pawn" can be found on my website (www.johncolvert.com), my MySpace page (myspace.com/johncolvert), and I have included it here as a free download. Flynn and I are excited to go back into the studio in September with the band to record a 5 song EP.
Point of the story kids is that I would not have been able to get this far without all of your support. Thanks for everything you do, even if it is just stopping by the website to check out the new song.
For you guys and girls who are in young bands, please feel free to contact me about teaming up for some shows and events. Lets help each other get the ball rolling! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
