Support independent artists:
join me on a journey of creation and musical discovery...
Corona Virus has stripped away the livelihood of touring musicians around the world, myself included. For a year now, independent artists have been stuck in limbo, not sure when, or if, life will ever return to normal.
But it also means we have more time. It means we now have the opportunity to realise the many creative projects normally confined only to our minds. Sure, we may need to re-evaluate how it is we can continue to pay rent, but creatively it presents us with a whole new way of approaching our art.
For me, that means just that, creating. Every day. In whatever form that takes. I have committed to composing, recording, producing, something, anything, every day, Monday to Friday, for at least a year. That will result in over 250 new pieces of music by the end of 2021 alone, on top of the many projects and collaborations I had already committed to this year.
Sure, some of this music might turn out to be crap, but some of it might be gold, and all of it will be a stepping stone to new projects, to new collaborations, and to rediscovering myself as an artist and as a creator.
It is also a way that I can connect with you, the listener. So far, I am only a few weeks in, and it has changed the way I think about music and composition, and I want to invite you in to the depths of my creative musical mind. I want to invite you along on this journey with me.
Well, I have set up a Backstage subscription service using the Bandcamp platform, where every 3 months I will be releasing a subscriber only Sample Album showcasing what I have created up to that point, and including a description of what the piece means to me and how or why I created it. It will be a raw, inside look at my creative process, in all its forms, and you can help me decide if, and for what, I should use the tracks. Additionally, as a subscriber, you will also get an instant digital download of every finished project I ever release on Bandcamp, meaning you will get to experience the music throughout its entire musical life cycle.
