Over the past few years I have been asked “When’s the new cd coming out?” or “When will you be putting out new stuff?” and I’ve always felt like I needed to put out new material, almost without any thought.
In a time when everything is GO! GO! GO!.. MOVE! MOVE! MOVE!.. BUSY! BUSY! BUSY! I cant help but feel (on so many levels, not just artistically) that there is no time to rush. Like any art or sport, good things take time; especially when you want to make significant change to the world around you.
Some musicians/artists are constantly putting out new content (not necessarily good) every month, week, heck! even everyday! Whether for marketing reasons or trying to remain in the public eye, I’ll say it again “Good things take time”. In fact rushing your craft and putting out mediocre is a disservice to not just the calling on your life, but to those close to you...Yes even your social media followers.
It has been 17 years since I picked up the guitar, 9 years since my first EP, 4 years since my last recording and roughly 500 written songs in between. All this and so much more have lead me to my childhood dream of making my first album - AUGUST.
Better to measure 10 times and cut once, than to measure once and cut 10 times.
