Let's Get It Started! - 1.3.17
Hope you all had a nice New Years and a great holiday. I know last time I said I wanted to update you all weekly but then Christmas hit and my office was closed all last week so I got tied up doing things with Franco and Gia. But have no fear, we have made a lot of progress on the record.
The last post I talked about a song called "It's Alright", which we were tracking drums. That track is complete (minus vocals and horns) and has been retitled to "Live Loud" based on the lyrics I've written. Zach has finished a second track (minus horns & vocals), the one we called "Forever". I am almost finished with these lyrics but it's looking like that title will stick. We are almost finished with the base track for the third song, which we called #7 and I would expect I'll have that in the next day or two. I am almost finished with the lyrics for this song as well. If I decide to keep the lyrical direction of this song it will be called "Dad Life", but we will have to see. Right now it's a tongue & cheek approach to being a parent, kind of in the vein of Part Time Rock Star and I'm still on the fence about it. We'll see how it all plays. out.
I am going to Zach's studio this weekend to record vocals for all three and then we'll get to writing the horn parts so we'll be able to record those in the next few weeks. Then just mixing and mastering so we are getting close.
Below is a little sneak peek of "Live Loud" & "Forever." I wanted to give you a small glimpse of what we've been up to. I'm really happy with how the music has turned out and I am doing my best to make sure I won't ruin the songs by singing over them.
Hope you enjoy and I'll talk to you soon.
