A Valentine’s Day Song

This is a song I wrote for my wife for Valentine’s Day. I hope you like it.

Godzilla, Don’t Eat Me

It’s been far too long since I have released any new music and I thought it was time to change that. So today I released a song titled “Godzilla, Don’t Eat Me” and you can download it for free at my MySpace page. It’s a quirky pop/rock song that sounds more like my old band than anything else I’ve released as a solo artist. I hope you enjoy it and grab the download while you can because it’s only going to be available for free download for a month or so.

I’ve been writing lots of new songs and I hope to be able to share some of that with you late this fall but we’ll see how things go as I am still working on finishing up my new studio.

Where I’ve Been, What I’ve Been Doing

Well once again I’ve posted something about musical plans on here only to have those plans dashed aside by real life. I got a new job and I was out of state for a month so no music was accomplished and the new job has me working longer hours so it’s even tougher to get things done.

I’ve really given up attempting to make any firm plans in regards to music anymore. They just never seem to work out. I’ve been working on this album for more than two years now, even since before Watching the Ships came out. At this point I’m considering just shelving the whole project and starting new. I’ve written a lot of new songs that I think reflect who I am now as a person and a musician so much better than songs that are several years old and I also feel like I haven’t been starting anything new because I’ve been hanging onto this idea that that the current album needs finished even though I’m not much closer today than I was a couple months ago. I feel like its holding me back at this point.

But who knows, like I said I’m not making firm plans for anything. Maybe I will finish it after all. There will be new music from me, I just dont know when.

Of Fingers and Failing Computers

So I couldn’t play guitar for a month or so because of smashing a finger on my left hand. Now that that finger is mostly healed I ran into another major roadblock to getting my music done. A couple weeks ago I experienced a major computer failure on my studio computer. I ended up having to replace the computer with a new one and I’ve almost got the new one completely setup with all of my audio software. Unfortunately all of my song files are still on a hard drive that I haven’t been able to access yet.

Sometimes I wonder what purpose God has behind all these roadblocks that I’ve been facing over the past year in regards to my music. How do you know when to push ahead or change directions entirely?

Once I have my song files back I’ll be releasing a couple new songs that I hope you enjoy.
