It's been a bit quiet around here recently. This is because I'm taking a little break.
As some of you may know I've been having some issues with my throat. This has meant that I've not been able to work as much as I'd like to. The good news is that the voice is getting better. I'm able to sing now without sounding like I have a buzz saw in the back of my throat, and I sound a lot smoother again. You can hear the problem on my last single "In My Mind" as it sounds like there's some distortion on my voice. There isn't that's actually how my voice sounded at that time. My doctor has told me to rest up for 6 weeks. So, since we're now in the 6 weeks school summer holidays, I'll rest up until the kids go back to school in September, and all being well I should be fighting fit again.
So, this leaves the question of what to do with the other new single that was due for release in 3 weeks. Well, I don't want to push my luck by rushing into singing it before I'm 100% again. My voice is better, but it's not quite where it should be. This means that I'm going to delay the new one until I come back from the break. This will give me some time to fix the mix and get the vocals recorded some time in early September. I also want to remaster and re-record the previous single to replace the vocals and make it sound better.
And one final thing: Videos!
I've decided to try doing video updates and putting them out on YouTube instead of just typing everything. It's been noted that I don't do enough promotional stuff for myself, I have very few photos of myself as I mostly rely on my music, and this will definitely have to change if I'm going to be performing in front of people any time soon. So, I'll be putting out future music updates in video form. This should also allow me to do some live recordings of my stuff from home.
