Well that was good fun. It was great night at the single launch, very well put together by big Fabio from The King Lot. Everyone had mentioned how much of a successful night it was. It was really cool to be part of this and looking at the challenges, the stress people where going through to the lead up of it I just hope everyone feels it was worth it.
I slipped up in a few things before the performance, i never gave my self enough time to warm up and i had plenty of time to do it, I never took a photo of my settings which were changed by the support band, but to be fair i never knew they were using it until i seen them plug it in. I don't mind supporting people but it’s just nice to be asked. All these little things that seems huge on the night.
We had John from Volts come up and join us and I had 3 separate people come up and mention as to what a big difference it made to the live sound. It’s always been something that I have considered but overall I think it would be too much hassle.
Good times ahead with news this morning that the official chart company have included us in their recent article, what fun.
CHART COMPANY ARTICLE
Over the last few weeks with my involvement in the Xmas No1 race the new papers have been featuring the efforts and there has been lots going on. Iv tried to keep track of them all but its hard as there is so many but here is a few links to the main ones.
never has there been a better saying than "Do What You Love". This week i have lived a breathed this. As well as balance everything in life this week iv been working as hard as ever on my songs. Im pleased with the huge leap forward I've made.
Since September i had been working on the Wings single which was amazing but glad to say that this is over now, well at least the recording is. Now ive been working on my songs and especially the 10 ive choosen for the next King Lot album.
Challenges have been in the guitar solos, i really need to get some chops and after ive got this album out the way i will really be looking at this closer. Just now is all been about the writing, using sensory approach, locking in harmonies, finishing on the beat, ensuring plot are strong, using toggle pattern.
To learn all this i have found i have had to read more, research more and dig deep to get recorded what im trying to do. There comes a point where it has to stop as its all going to change as soon as I get the boys to record their parts on it.
My main achievments have been in the the redoing the demos in a differernt keys, redoing all the bass all the guitars and vocals. I have made a few faster which is really getting my juices going.
Big leap forward for
All I want - New harmonies, new start new ending
Hearts on Fire - I went back to the original meaning of this song, i called it sky is onfire but getting to the true meaning i rewrote some of it to discuss the topic clearly, faster, bigger chorus.
Goodbye - the original topic of this was too close to the bone for me just now so i will approach this later, so i turned it into a gril leaves boy lost love story in the thiord person, again going back to my original idea.
Bridge across your heartache - still not finiahed with this one but made the harmonies stronger sounding but will revisit this next week.
i lost so much footage from the last few days... This was all I could salvage... Lesson learned! Back it all up!
Heard The King Lot made the Scotsman today..
