Flowing with the Current

     Tonight I feel a little better as I was able to upload the song I recorded last night. Sometimes you get so overwhelmed and it can be frustrating trying to manage everything that needs to be done. The new release(s) seems to be on track and we set a date for December 13th. I know release dates may not mean much anymore and sometimes they can get moved yet so far I can say we are on track.
   I've seen so much in my music life and dealt with my fair share of criticism, and sometimes even family. It makes it more difficult and then again there are great people who also present great things and I try to find and follow them. All I can say is I'm grateful for what I have in this life. It may not seem like a lot yet to me it's the world. I spent a lot of time thinking about this it I'd rather gravitate back toward those who have supported me most and support in return. To you I salut. Enjoy this new upload from today as well as the new Sodacon logo.

As the week unfolded...

     As the week unfolded it seemed as though everything is at least moving in some kind of direction, as opposed to the feeling of everything going at a snails pace. It feels good to be at the end of the week and some things have fallen into place. I enjoy the moments I can be in my studio and working on the new projects.
    You know the feeling. Tired as hell all week yet was able to get most of the way through recording a new song and prepare for Saturdays broadcast on Stageit. We also created a new promo video highlighting the new song.

     It's been a fun October as I've hidden out in the studio recreating some of the best tracks in my older catalog while also writing new material. It's been a fun experiment and I've enjoyed the music. One particular track "Lake Affect" is one I dragged out of the vault that has been a particular joy. I hoping to share the song this weekend.

I've also been working on new merchandise, created a t-shirt design that includes Sodacon text with strokes of gray and lightning bolts. I have a lot more in the works and am really focused on creating new unique items. I'm considering types of arm bands, several high quality t-shirt and hoodie designs, new stickers, or cd packages with basket of goodies and more. We'll go one at a time and I look forward it.

Adventures in the studio

     So far we are humming right along, and have the projects set. I took an older track from a project back in 04 and reworked the song. I also started another new track and have 3 discs set for release. I've been uploading each track individually and also going over concept ideas for the new covers.
     One of the discs, Hybrid Portal is all but completed along with SpaceArtRock 2.0 with a whole new array of new songs. The new album The Story Goes will contain all new songs as well.

Moments when I'm not working I've been spending time with my boy, who is talking more and recently started leading everyone around the house by the hand when he wants people to see something. My significant other is awesome as usual and getting excited for Halloween. I've added the usual decorations and am trying to figure out a costume for the dog. It will be one banner season and looking forward to sharing the new songs.
