First off, been planning some cool things with WatersEdge. It's cool how the right opportunities can get the ball rolling in the right places. We're looking to bring them to Ohio! Looks like we'll have two or three concerts with the Nebraska natives over here in this corner of the world, and guess who will be playing with them? Ok, I'm being coy.
Also, we've been working on promoting the band to really get this album out there. I know that I personally put many, many hours of work into it, and I know that they are ready for the world to get in on their big, eclectic train. Been going after radio, clothing, booking, so if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to message me either through social networking or my website! And of course, if you haven't already, "like" them on facebook and tell your friends about them.
I personally have been working on some other interesting projects though. I'm currently doing some stuff with a hip-hop client (more to come on that one!), and even doing some design work. GASP! You make visual art, you say? Indeed I do, and until we get the website updated and a bit more web 2.0, you can always head over facebook and check out some of my art in the photos section.
Also been doing things with Impact. In fact, we have a free concert tonight at FCF of Trenton. You game? What's fun about Impact for me is being able to play some of my favorite covers, but also playing my own originals here and there. It's always really cool for me to hear people's reactions to my writing.
However, admittedly, sometimes it is a bit much between a lot of the things I do. Being a full-time music student at UD certainly has it's demands, and my first two years were anything but easy. This year is a little different though, I've managed to lighten up my courseload in order focus more on things that are important to me, but those things take time too. For instance, I am now the Vice President of StreetSounds Recording Studio on campus. Cool beans, huh?
It's interesting sort of living this kind of life, between academia, collegiate music and popular music. Going from being student to teacher, from the directed to the director often times in the same day. When a director looks at me either with pleasure or disappointment, it's got a particular flavor to me, because I know where they're coming from.
There are some other things that, as always, I am working on but are sort of under wraps right now. But I suppose that's the way it goes, isn't it?
