Covers, Writing



(random wedding shot)

so i’ve just launched a soundcloud for myself. not sure how much use it’s going to get at this stage, but the plan is to put many demos/previews of stuff that i am working on. currently the only thing on there is a cover i did with a couple of friends from waapa in hope that we would get a few pub gigs out of it. and we did. but i don’t think the pub life is for me anymore. i have had every intention to really work on my own stuff this year and develop some sort of style or sound that i can own. but i have not been committed enough, and definitely been too easily discouraged. i just have to realise that it may take some time for me to really produce something that i love. and speaking of producing, that’s another factor. i have a recording program i just don’t have anywhere to set up a midi keyboard and even make some sort of lame excuse for a track. so i just resort to my piano. and i don’t know, but i think there’s only so far you can take your songwriting sitting on the same old piano. i need to get a bit more active, and that is what i plan to do.

so i vow to you, readers of caboodle street, and those interested in my ‘studio’, that i will have some work for you. i will spend my spare time not playing candy crush (darn that stupid unintelligent game), or practicing my makeup with nowhere to go, or even watching pretty little liars. i will spend my time in some sort of strange den that i will create for myself, to really get in tha zone and pump out some sweet sounds. well they might not be sweet, but they will be sounds. that i can guarantee.

in the meantime, i will mostly be posting about how i’m going/struggling with writing lyrics and who is doing it right. for me they’re the biggest mountain to climb. also i’ll show you what sounds i’m loving, and probably many youtube links. so if you feel like hearing a pretty humble version of wonderwall (oasis), or you need a band for your pub, please click here and enjoy my soundcloud.
