Been a cool couple of weeks, needed to sit on the mixes for a bit to make sure they sounded exactly the way I wanted. The songs have been shipped off to the mastering house. Should have them back next week. 🙂
In the meantime I’ve been writing the business plan for going after investors. Whew what a pain in the ass. But I’m learning alot more about the business side of music. Yikes.
I’ve also been told that I’ll be featured on a new website from Sennheiser. It will launch on May 5th I think. I’ll post a link here when it’s live.
I’m also writing some songs for another new artist. Think Evanescence meets dance metal with a male singer. Weird.
Finally finished the mixes for the new CD as of 4p.m. today. Now the files go off to the Mastering House to get gussied up for the actual pressing. I’m midway through mixing the Surround Sound versions that will go on the DVD. I have about 6 more songs to go. Should be finished with them well… tomorrow.
The video shoot went very well on Sunday. Though I did get an super sunburn for being out in the sun all day long. I had a great time and according to the director, Byron Turk, whom I spoke with today – the footage is very good. We also had an extra camera running while we were shooting, so there will be a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video. Plus we shot an interview with questions supplied by you, the fan.
My manager and I are getting packages out to Agents and publicists that are interested in working with the first CD Baby artist signed up for iTunes Music Store and the other digital distribution sites. It’s all very exciting. So in the mean time, I’m getting the artwork ready, and writing a business plan. Thus if you know of a Venture Capitalist or two, please point them in my direction or point me in their direction. I have a great concept for the whole plan.
I will be adding the “A Natural Leap Forward” CD/DVD to the music page in the next few days. It should be going off to the digital sites within a few weeks.
Have a great day.
