So Here you are now
If you know me well enough, you'd have to know by now I write tonnes of songs with never any intention on using them for anything serious. I wrote this album in January 2017 with only a bunch of emotions going through my mind, so I guess that's why 3 of the tracks sound so cheesy sad.
So this is how it all came about. I wrote 7 songs to be recorded with the Penrith Symphony orchestra and 1 song I could record at home in the studio. I took the charts to the Joan Southerland Centre where I recorded all the orchestral parts with a small string section, a piano player, 2 guitarists and myself on drums. The lyrics of the songs don't exist yet, so the general vibe of the ensemble is they're about to record an emotional sad album.
Anyways... I wrote the lyrics at work in my phone, pretty much how I write all lyrics, unless I'm with Bob, in which case it's a matter of record one line, write one line and hope it rhymes. Tracked all vocals and extra guitars and stuff, then bounced the album down to Itunes. Then.. yeah... 1 kayaking album, done.
