Well, I went through my vast catalogue of recent songs (After bumping a few new ones off this morning) and decided I had a good batch of songs. So I picked 7 of the best of the songs I've recorded over the past few months and made it into an EP. I mastered the entire set in about an hour and you can listen to the EP here which is my SoundCloud I am very proud of the outcome of this set and think it's my best work to date. I named it 'Transitional Phrase' just because it sounded like it fit. These masters sound perfect and there isn't a thing that I would change about them. I will post more detail on the EP soon.

I guess my losing streak has expired. I've written several new songs (You can find them on my SoundCloud). Don't know where they are going now but I am filing them in Categories on my SoundCloud page I'm not going to think about what may become of these new batches...I'm just gonna keep writing and whatever comes out...comes out. Enjoy.

I'm taking a bit of a recess right now with regards to writing or working on anything new. I've been trying too hard at writing new music and it's been showing...also I've been under a heavy work load and a lot of stress lately. I've cleaned up my SoundCloud (Gotta save space) and will continue in my efforts when the time is right (Hopefully soon). I'm not out...just taking a breather. Check back here for future updates and be sure to visit my SoundCloud (Link to the top right column ) for whats new.

Ok I'm writing/recording a bunch of stuff...truth is I have no agenda. I'm assuming it will end up on an EP/LP somewhere down the line...so I guess I'm working on a new 'Project'. I've noticed I'm getting back to the sort of 'Narcotic' sound I had from 'Bringing It Back'....that's ok...I think actually it's my signature sound...this (Whatever it will become) seems to be VERY PERSONAL in nature... the songs I'm writing (Lyrically) I'm gathering are some demons that are being excesized. And no it don't point to my ex wife...but it does seem to point to one woman in particular...bottom line is I'm onto something here...I will post the best bits on my SoundCloud.

Sometime between today and Tuesday I will definitely begin working on new material. I have no pre-planned agenda as far as what type of music I intend to write and record. Stay tuned to this blog (And my SoundCloud page...link to the right column) for updates.

I am temporarily shelving the 'Blue' EP. I am just not satisfied with the overall vocal quality of the tracks and I can't live with most if not all of the mixes I've been working on. The tracks in of themselves are actually pretty good overall but in order to comitt them to a full blown 'Project' they need to be better. So as for now they are going into the backup hard drive for use at another point and time perhaps. Where do I go from here? I am not quite sure but it won't be too long before I begin working on new material. I am also toying with the idea of going into the archives and remixing/remastering past songs heard and unheard for a mega collection. I have probably a couple of hundreard previously released and unreleased songs on the backup drive that I can work with for this project. This is just an idea I have been contemplating and even if I do go forward with these plans I still plan on working on brand new material. Indecision has gripped me mostly due to the fact I have so much on my 'To Do' list in my personal life right now that I have been overwhelmed. My soundcloud will be getting a purging too. I need to clear the decks and start fresh. Still I urge you to check back on my soundcloud for any new material that may go up. A lot of times I post new material up there and won't announce it on this blog for days afterwards simply because I just couldn't find the time to do so. Thanks Again.
