First off, apologies for the delay in updates. With so much going on I like to have something concrete to tell you about and so much has been in a state of flux, again my apologies. So let’s start with what has been going on with preparing for live shows. Well, let’s just say I am working it. At the moment I desperately want to do live shows, but finding people to play the music I created is rough as Asheville’s a pretty small town, with a ton of cliques. So not one to be discouraged, I decided to fire up Apple’s Mainstage and so I’m planning on solo and duo shows, with the aid of my wife! It’ll be pretty dependent on the specific show.
I still want to assemble a full live band so until I can find the right people, I’ll save my pennies and hire musicians to play the music I wrote on stage. I haven't booked anything yet, as I like to put on a good show, that's tight and well rehearsed. Not looking for perfection, but worth it. So far the live band is me and my wife @Lady_Destro. I haven't heard from the other two in months. Not going to let it get me down. Just going to keep pushing! I believe in what I'm doing and I love creating and building more than life itself! So I'll keep pushing and moving forward! Always forward! Never ever give up on yourself!
In keeping with that attitude I’m concentrating my efforts on making more music, and more content! After some experimenting with tools, I can confidently say we will begin uploading lyric videos for all the songs! Not sure how long this will take, but we’re going to get them all done! In the meantime, if you’d like to read the lyrics, you can do so right here, in the lyrics section! We are also working on getting them into Apple music, and other lyric display sites, to make them easily searchable. We’re also doing free downloadable PDF’s for each release, as well as adding the lyrics to the songs on band camp, so when you purchase them from there you’ll automatically get the lyrics.
Also in studio practice, and performance videos are also coming as fast as I can physically make them, so I thank you for your patience, and your continued interest in what I’m doing! It means more than you know! I also want to say thank you to everyone who has listened, added, shared, downloaded, or purchased any of my music or content. I also want to say thank you for the support my wife and I have received for TopNotchTalk.com we’re off to the races, and my wife has officially launched her weekly podcast “J.Talk” and she’s already up to three episodes, with no signs of slowing down. I’ve also been blogging about my favorite tech and gear, so follow us over there, tons of great content to read, with even more on the way!
