I’ve been doing a lot of writing over the last six months putting together demos of new songs and ideas using my acoustic nylon guitar as the driving instrument. I’m experimenting with different strum and picking patterns to compliment the feel and story of each tune, while trying to emulate the atmosphere and energy from my live performances.
I’ll be rehearsing, writing, and producing these songs over the rest of the summer and will be going into the studio this upcoming fall to record a five song EP. I’ll be incorporating strings, percussions, and different synthesizers to round out the style and feel of the album.
Currently I am wrapping up the recording and mixing of an instrumental cover I did of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors,” which will give a glimpse into the sounds I am looking to create on the upcoming EP.
“True Colors” will be released next month along with videos of an updated version of my song “Dark of the Road” and the Paul Simon track “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.”
Stay tuned for updates…
