What I’m doing now
I’m in San Francisco, staying quite focused, avoiding distractions. I spend all my time on these things: (in order of time spent)
- Completed, released, and currently promoting SOUL SAMPLER, Vol. I, first in a series of new multi-genre EPs.
- Completed, released and currently promoting DARK CRYSTAL by my a.k.a. artist name Happy Halloween Music.
- Learning a lot about epic orchestral, and hybrid electronic + orchestral production.
- Releasing new original pop singles with UK singer/producer Mark Hadley
- following tutorials by David Earl to learn advanced Logic Pro X recording techniques
- Cover of the 80s pop classic MANIAC now released! Mastered by Greg Gordon of Pyramind, featuring Chicago singer RJ Griffith
- really into Kombucha drinks and probiotics in general
Those are my priorities.
My latest view on creativity is that it has the greatest flow when we complete projects (a music cd, write a book, create visual art, etc..) and get those out of our system. The feeling is of completion, and then allows room for the next ideas to come in more fully and be manifested. Recently I struggled with wanting to create so many different genres of music, that I felt like I wasn’t completing any of them. So, what I resolved was to release a series of Soul Samplers (Special thanks to Ari Ross for that series title, check out his site and music to be released on September 15, 2019!), a series of five-song EPs that will include a variety of the genres I’m producing. So in essence, followers of my music will get a sneak peak at future albums from each EP, the goal being to ultimately re-organize all the same genre songs into separate coherent larger albums after all the Soul Sampler EPs are complete.
My main act of public service is helping musicians do the best things for making as much money online as possible from their recordings, so feel free to email me.
If my activities or priorities change, I’ll update this page. Last update was August 29, 2019.
