North Adams Eagles 310 1/24 (and open mics rant)

I had an incredible night @ The Eagles Tonight. The staff is outstanding and the whole night was pure fun.

Side Note:
Remember Folks, Open Mics are where it’s at. A LOT of times that’s not only how I get gigs, but also how I meet other musicians to work with and work out the bugs and kinks in songwriting and performance. THere are plenty to choose from. Find one that works for you.

New Year / New Plan

So, It’s 2015. Wow ! I thought I’d be so much further along by now.
I do want to say THank You to all the Venues who had me perform for them and all the kind folks who showed and let me know that you enjoy what I do. 2014 was a good year and I’ve learned some and enjoyed most of it. I also want to thank all the open mic. hosts. What you do is vital to the music arena and without you, it would not be the same.

Side notes:
Autumn and I wrote a really nice Christmas Song. (She’s Good.)
Still trying to get this site to do what I tell it to.The Calendar thing is beginning to irritate me.
Still working on recording not crap demos. I’m going to have to move all my recording Equipment to another room and co-opt that space first and quasi sound proof it. I never realized how noisy my house was until I plugged in a decent condenser Mic. LOL.

A final shout out to a few folks who have been great Inspiration and guidance

Keepin on Keepin on 10/29/2014

Still learning how to use my studio software. I never realized how noisy my house was.
Working on a new batch of songs. Some really gritty stuff. I would like to have ten songs tracked and radio ready before the first of the year. I’ve currently counted 18 songs that are ready for scratch tracking and four or five more that need a little tweaking. Now it’s just buckling down and doing the studio work Then getting them mastered.
I will keep everyone updated as best I can and when cuts become available, YOU will be the first to know.
See Y’all out there. :D
