It takes forever for me to get things done; it is just the pressure of.. well life! I have got a week away from it all, so hopefully I can make some ground on the many songs that still are stuck in production. I notice that a lot of people liked my old recording of She Moves Me, it is such a fun song and now that I have my new Harley Benton Beatbass I thought that it would be fun to return to this song, hopefully the new version will go down ok with you. The recording is going great I had loads of fun singing the backing vocals for the song, it is now just getting everything else done. I am feeling chilled at the moment as I have just had a sauna and laid in a jacuzzi bubble bath listening to some 60’s songs. They are right when they say they don’t make them like they used to, the energy and vibe on songs like I’m A Believer, or the innocence of Here There And Everywhere are not present these days. It is sad to say but I think that music is very much like a person because as we grow, we lose the innocent way that we look on life and it can never be recaptured.
Don’t get me wrong, today as a musician we have never been as free, but reaching our audience is getting more difficult. People are harder to impress. Yes, there are many places for us to showcase our music, I can be found on Spotify, Amazon Music, iTunes, Napstar, Deezer, YouTube, Soundcloud, ReverbNation, Bandcamp, Number1 Music, Cosound, XRP Radio and the list goes on, but am I reaching my target audience. The truth be told, I don’t even know what my target audience is or what kind of genre of music I write. I write how I feel at the time and with my mood changes so does my style.
As a diversion from music when I am not watching Netflix, Amazon, or Disney+ I am watching YouTube. I enjoy watching Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show and A Late Night with Seth Meyers for their take on what is happening in America before going back to watching Produce Like a Pro, Joe Guilder, or Paul Davids on YouTube. Anway I should get back to working on my song She Moves me while I have the chance.
