Music, and stuff

So, I've been working on doing a lot of recordings and such since the E.P I made for a gig last year, culminating in a full album. It's going pretty well, and I've been experimenting a bit with different websites to spread the music out. I've previously only really used soundcloud to release free music (click here to listen) but as I'm looking to release paid for content, I'm moving across to bandcamp (click here to listen) for my commercial releases.

There's 2 singles available for free up there (or you can donate per download, if you'd like!) as well asa digital and physical E.P for purchase. So, you know, take a look and buy one if you'd like.

The album is coming along well. Currently finalising the track listing, which is forever growing. The artwork is getting totally re-done, with a few illustrations coming my way which look amazing. Not sure on a release date yet, maybe a month or two. I will be looking at getting physical copies made as well, which should be nice.

Anyway, check out some of my tunes and buy something if you'd like. Here's the artwork for the 2 single. I seem to have a bit of an animal obsession with the artwork:

Wake Up

You Should Know



Dear Blog,

I have been neglecting you haven't I? 3 posts in 2012? That simply won't do at all.

Looking at the list of things I aimed to do in my 2012 post, not really much has progressed with those. I've got a new job at work ad a Marketing Technical Assistant, so most of my creativity has been funnelled into that, rather than my personal work.

On the plus side, the demo went down well, and I'm currently working on a full album as we speak. I've got most of the tracks written, and provisional artwork created, but there's still a hell of a lot of work that needs to go into it.

So, to try and motivate myself, here's a list of my suggested aims in the coming year:
- Try and finish the musicians portrait project I've been working on
- Complete the album, play some gigs, do more with music
- Rebuild my website (I did do this last year, but it's looking a bit clunky now)
- Sort my act together

I'm aiming to actually do more illustration and update a bit more, so hopefully I can progress with maybe, oh I don't know, 4 posts this year?

To leave you with, a song I have been listening to a lot by the fantastic Future of the Left
