Here’s the cover for the album. It’s been a long process just making it to this point, but I’m finally there! We finalized the album sequencing last night and it seems to be flowing just right. I’m happy with it.
Now it’s time for the next phase, which will be letting a couple of news publications know that I’m back with another project.
Sequencing this album has been a very frustrating and tedious process. Trying to make everything perfect takes a lot of time.
A couple of the producers on this album are already asking me what’s good with my next project but quite honestly, I just want to chill after this one is done. I have other plans to fulfill before I can even begin to focus on the next project and some of those plans involve really working this project.
Just for starters, this album marks crucial points in my life and now that I have used those emotions to fuel this work of art I think I need to experience life before I can go on to the next one. I have nothing left in my think tank at the moment.
After all, I have been locked inside my house not socializing at all for the past two years trying to find a way to give this to world. I’m almost done!!!
Just not quite yet!!!
What’s up world!!! The album is finished finally!!! I decided to scrap two more songs and just leave it as it is making it a twelve song album.
I realized that I was done with the idea for the album. In other words, everything that fueled that album emotionally had run out. That particular part of my life is done and I’ve come to grips with the issues that inspired me at the point in my life.
All in all, I feel it’s a good listen and an honest attempt to capture the plight of a young man transitioning into a more mature and experienced individual. The album has high and low points which to me, defines that particular part of finding yourself in life. It isn’t easy, and neither was putting this album together!!!!
So now it’s on to the second phase of this album as well as my plans for the future.
I know! I’ve been slack on my postings as of lately but fear not I am still here. I’m still finishing up the album…well, I should say that I want to be finished with the album, but one of the producers is telling me to do the last two songs before I call it quits.
So, I guess tonight I will have to redo the last two songs so that I can add them to the album. The funny thing about these last two songs is one I wrote over 15 years ago. The other I wrote about 11 years ago.
What’s funny about that?
Both of these songs were ahead of their time in the sense that I was never aware that they would apply to my life now. At the time I was just dealing with issues that made me feel as if I were a man at that stage in my life. Now that I’m older I realize that I wasn’t fully a man by any means but I was smart enough to understand that what I was dealing with was making a man out of me.
Anyways, I just thought I’d share because I am ready to start blogging about this album so I can explain why it is so important to me!!!
That’s all for now!!
What’s up world!!! I’ve been out of the blogosphere for a couple of days and I’m not too thrilled to admit that. I can say I have been busy finalizing my album so I was doing something.
Anyways, the project is coming along better than I originally expected. In all honesty I was done with it until I really gave it a good listen. After soaking it all in I realized it wasn’t finished.
I feel that way because the album really took on its own persona and inspired me to finish what I started. Had I just left it the way it was I wouldn’t have been happy in the long run because there is a theme to what I had so far.
I played with different ideas and when I really accepted the fact that this project is really an embodiment of life itself , I realized it wasn’t finished. I saw that I needed to add a few more songs and really take it to the next level. I needed to make sure this album speaks how I’m really feeling right now in my life. I know it will be appreciated by those who can relate to the struggle of finding yourself and becoming a man.
And there you have it. I am back in the studio on beast mode trying to add a few more tracks to make this my best work to date!!
I think it is at this point!!!
