Meet The Band

I finally introduce the members of the band.  And...SAVE THE DATE for our first gig: April 19.

Inspiring and Perspiring

Every time I finish a song that I think is “worthy” (or pretty good at least) I worry that I’ll never write another good song again, ever.  Ruminations on inspiration and perspiration, band news, and a new song!

A link to a complete song, with a request for feedback.  Plus some band news.  Enjoy.

Keyboards

In a previous post I mentioned I had recorded a number of song demos to help teach the songs to the band quickly.  This means I needed worked-out parts for guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, and vocals.  The keyboard parts have been a bit of a challenge since I don’t play keyboards.  In this post I talk about the challenge of creating keyboard parts when you’re not a keyboard player.  My hope is that listening to a bunch of excerpts will be somewhat entertaining, even if the subject matter is a bit in the weeds.

Lyrics

Lyrics are hard for me -- songwriting is hard in general -- but lyrics are especially hard for me.  Constructing lines that "scan", making them rhyme, oh no now I need another verse, sheesh!  Can I get away without having a bridge?  In the post I talk about two different approaches I used in two different songs, and you can listen and judge for yourself.
