Finally, a Blog!
A thanks to those of you who have sent messages wondering where I am! Sorry about not staying current with my blogs, twitter, Facebook, and MySpace. I haven’t written a blog in quite a long time as I’ve been very busy writing and recording songs, and finishing the writing of my one-man-show. So I haven’t felt I’ve had anything else in me to write! Another side effect is that I haven’t been very social either. I’ve been totally and completely focused on my creative work. But I have a short break right now and I’ll do my best to at least write an update of what’s been happening…
Creatively, things have been wonderful. I’ve gone back to the recording studio, and have been recording songs for a new CD. To date, I’ve recorded and finished six songs, and am in the process of finishing two more. I don’t yet have a title for the CD (I’m tossing around three ideas but haven’t chosen one yet). It is turning out to be what I believe is my most creative work so far. I’m really pushing the limits of my writing, song structure, and sound. It has been (thus far) a joyous, exciting experience.
At the same time, I finally got past a major writing block with my show, and I think I’m just about finished the second draft. When this draft is done, I’m pretty sure I will be ready to start working on the performing of it! The show will include several songs from my upcoming CD (as well as songs from “Infinite Man” and “Ready”).
Another reason I haven’t been blogging is that I am in a creative state where I am not able to judge or even observe my process. I am so focused on what’s in front of me, that I can’t even begin to explain or describe my process – even to myself. And I don’t want to take myself out of the creative process to examine what’s going on – I just want to continue working.
But, hopefully, by the summer I will have a new CD out, as well as a live show!! I definitely will post all info on both of those, as they approach.
Thanks again for all your support, and messages. I haven’t disappeared – I’m just in a cocoon with my pen and voice.
