Anyway, had an email asking how I got from point A to B.. (6 years now)
Brief History of me and my music.. I use to have a band back in my college days, hard rock actually.. Anyway, years went by and I would purchase a Yami keyboard for the holidayís cause I like to play Christmas tunes.. Then I'd sell the board on eBay.. Usually I use to loose about $50, which I considered as a rental fee (it was cheaper than renting one too). One year the psr2000 came out and I talked my wife into letting me get one.. The idea was the same, buy it, play it during the holiday and then put it up on eBay... Every other board I had I never messed with styles or any real feature.. My wife asked me to do a vocal tune which led me to research it, which led me to sythzone and the fine folks here.. From there I learned about styles, and made some musicÖHave to say, although I thought they were good at the time, my first attempts where total crap, and I would here it when I posted the tunes.. For some reason, I kept on going..(btw, some of the old tunes to this day I cannot bear to listen to).. My 2n'd cd "behind the brick wall" was a little better, but still missed the mark, at least for me, song structure was out their and the recording process still needed tweaked.. Although like anything I thought it was good at the time... So we are what, 23 songs written and going through the process of making up tunes. One thing did pay off, I learned to mix, record vocals, structure a song and play the keyboard better. Which led to CD 3 "butterflies in Nottingham" Which is still one of my favorite today and has two of my top selling songs on it... I went into it thinking about song structure and a theme that would run through the whole CD.. Itís pretty much lite pop.. Next CD "The Fool" Built on that and was quite solid. Then "My Island" I stepped out of the box and made a summer holiday at the beach tunes, I really experimented with hooks and making them fun.. Which bring us to the current CD which I'm playing soft rock stuff and is more for me and what I like to listen to.. So looking back I have 23 songs Iíd like to flush down the toilet and 47 Iím real proud of and they seem to keep growing from here.. Thanks for the support!
I don't steer the ship... I bail out the water...
