I hope your year is off to a good start. If it has not, damn it! I trust that it will get better. I’ve decided to write a blog twice a month to keep you updated on my progress. This is for those of you that want to know the ins and outs of my work and I’m excited to share my world with you. First, thank you for supporting me in all the ways that you do. I could not do this without you. You motivate me to keep going and to put my best effort into making music.
So, what do we have cooking for the year? I spent weeks listening to my heart and intuition in order to know where I should focus my attention in 2024. Then, I began formulating a plan to execute my new goals. I’m excited to announce that I’m finally ready to produce an album. The album will not come out this year, but my goal is to have it produced and recorded so I can release it some time in 2025. I’ll also be releasing singles this year as I work on producing and recording the album. In fact, I’ve just sent one off to be mixed and mastered.
The album is already written for the most part, so I am in the process of making demos to show producers. I don’t know who will produce the album yet, but I have faith that the right people will come into my life. I just have to let people know what I need.
One of the things I’m going to need is financial capital to complete this project. I also have faith that we live in an abundant society and the money I need is already coming my way. The money I need will mostly be given to local musicians, studio spaces, and engineers. I’ll likely send the project outside of Omaha for the mix and master and I may be paying producers from outside of Omaha. If you know any producers that you think match my style and who are serious and professional please send them my way.
I am already feeling a bit overwhelmed. I need to remember to focus on one thing at a time, but there are so many moving parts. I felt sad this past week at one point because I have so much help when it comes to the music side, but not so much when it comes to the business side. I feel like I’m doing that part alone. Sometimes, it’s hard to know if I’m heading in the right direction because I don’t have anyone to bounce around ideas with. I’m also not a great salesperson and I struggle to find creative ways to get my business off the ground. Even so, I keep trying because I truly love what I do.
I know the answers are coming. I need to take a deep breath and listen. Catch me on Tik Tok Tuesday-Saturday. At the end of the day, I feel healthy and I’m looking forward to the joy of creating. I’ll be pushing through the challenges that come my way and I’m so happy that you are a part of it. We’ve got this!!
