The Making of "She Knew"

This month I'm working on writing new songs for my upcoming EP.  I just finished writing the chords, lyrics, and melody for "She Knew".  Right now the song is a very simple stripped down acoustic composition, which is how all of my songs start.  I will record this song to a click track so I can have a drummer and bass player layer in their parts.  I'm not really sure which direction I'm heading for the overall sound of this song...sometimes it is best to see what happens naturally.  Anyway, here's a video of the song stripped down in its simplest form.  Can't wait to show you the final version!

New Year New EP....Follow Me for the Ride!



Hello Folks,

It's 2015 and I'm ready to create some new music!  I've decided to record a 5 song EP and document the entire process.  You will get to see what goes into making an album using the DIY (do it yourself) model.

I will finish up some songs I've been toying around with, and write some songs from scratch.  I'm planning on completing all writing and creative in January, mixing and mastering in February, and releasing the album on my website in March.  It's going to be a fun process and I think you'll enjoy being a part of the project.

I'll post my song ideas as they come to fruition this month.  I look forward to sharing my music with you!

Later,
Michael
