Studio time

Posted on April 13, 2013 by Slim

I neglect this blog… a lot.

The simple reality is this: I “retired” from the road life to really focus on my life and my health. I could have the greatest life ever, but if I’m not alive to really enjoy and experience it, what’s the point? Because of that, this blog (and often my music), isn’t always in the forefront of my mind.

With that said, I’ve still continued to write music, with the hope and anticipation of releasing another couple albums in the future and of course working on client stuff. This coming Saturday, I’ll be back in the recording studio with my older brother, The Bishop, to track another tune that I wrote for the one and only Ryan Kida.

I currently write a lot of music either commercially, or for other bands/artists, but rarely do I actually get to be a part of the recording and producing aspect of it. So, I love these gigs to be able to write the music AND get to track it!

This new tune is a blues/rock/almost-metal track.. super heavy with gnarly blues roots and a super sexy break down.

I’m excited about where my life is headed: I’m sober, getting in shape, feeling healthy and amazing, and genuinely loving life in ways that I never have before. I’m not quite sure what the future holds for me, but I know that my music will always be a huge part of it. Every now and again, I listen to this demo-version of a tune that I started working on for my solo project:

Again, it’s just a demo-quality version of the track, and by no means represents a final version, but I think it will still give you guys a good idea of the direction that I want to head with the project. Lot’s of ambient/ethereal tracks with big swooping instrumentals. I MIGHT even get frisky and drop some vocal tracks, who knows?

I’ve still been toying with the idea of putting together an acoustic solo set to perhaps gig out once every month or two. A solid 20 covers or so… just me and my guitar.

All in all, life is good.

Thank you all so much for your continued love and support. You’re each such a huge blessing in my heart and life!

Peace, snugs, and MEGA love!
