So I’m sitting here super stoked about the fact that I’m bringing the album master and artwork downtown today to be replicated into 1000 CDs. It sounds great, looks great, and I can’t wait to have my first finished, available for purchase album done.
It’s weird, I’ve spend a long time writing songs, playing music, trying to get yourself out there, heard, visible, and yet this is finally the crowning achievement I’ve been working towards. A finished body of work…music, art, text…all together in a little package that I can call my own. And though I’ve had the recordings to listen to over the last two months, it’s not the same as having it finished. It’s closure, and yet it really is the start of things. All my hopes, fears and emotions into a 5.5″ x 5″ plastic thing. One thousand of them, actually. It’s a good start I think.
I’ll keep everybody posted.
