Happy New Year and all that jazz. I’m sure at this time of year you have something you’re feeling a slight/major surge of motivation and energy to finally accomplish. As for me, my big resolution is to finish this album I’ve been working on. It’s hard. The minute details I’m agonizing over seem to be multiplying like cells, like mitosis, faster than I can keep up with. I’m not complaining about the process, I’m just not that good at it, at mustering up a firm “yay” or “nay” and then swiftly and confidently moving on to the next decision. I guess I have a grand vision of what this could be, and I’m desperate to not screw it up.
But I’m also extremely excited to show you a set of new songs that convey my heart and soul more authentically than any music I’ve ever made. And I guess with this territory comes a lot of gut-wrenching work, and I’m prepared to get my hands even dirtier, my vocal cords even rawer, my ear-drums even itchier, and my nerves even more frazzled yet. For the love of the game. And all that is holy.
