Silent & Deep
Just so we are on the same page, let me make it clear, if it's not already, that I am an amateur. This album was recorded and mixed in my spare bedroom - with somewhat decent equipment (at the time, for an amateur), but I have no formal training in these matters. So the sound quality is not as good as if it were recorded in a pro studio. I guess I was just taken with the idea of doing everything myself, even if it wasn't perfect - or, maybe even if I honestly didn't necessarily know what I was doing. Except for mastering - I didn't try to take that on by myself, it was done professionally. As was the CD replication, i.e. this is not a CD-R. Clearly, I'm not trying to 'make it' as a musician; this is just for fun. I've given away all the copies of my CD I could to friends and family, I figured why not make it available here also. That way it will be easy for a friend of a friend of a friend to get a copy, if they want one. And if some random person out there stumbles across it too and actually likes it, so much the better. I'm not sure exactly how to describe my music or who it might sound like. I guess it's pop/rock of some sort, for the most part, but beyond that I'm not sure what to say about it. And I really don't have a good sense of whether these songs are 'good' or 'bad'...I just felt compelled to write songs, and this is what came out. I expect that some of you reading this, especially the musicians among you, could tear them to shreds and lay out for me in precise detail exactly why they're awful. You can send me this information if you wish, but my fragile little ego can't handle it so any such messages will be ignored with extreme prejudice. :) Anyway, please listen if you feel like it. Maybe a few of you might hear something you like.
