Music Update!

It was great fun doing my 1st live stream yesterday on my YouTube channel! I will do another one next week on the 23rd of November!

Yesterday I kept it going for an hour answering questions from followers and/or fans, it was a great experience which reminded me of how things used to be on Facebook, when it was possible to actually reach fans and have an interaction going!

I’m glad that people enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to bringing my acoustic guitar next Friday! You can watch the Q&A right here:

This is the last day of the pre-order campaign for my upcoming release, so make sure that you get your signed, physical copy!

Yesterday I sent out downloads to my Patrons on Patreon, so if you want to receive songs before anyone else, then this is the best place to go!

The only “top-tier”exclusive that I have left to make, besides a birthday greeting, is to make an in-depth vocal lesson. I imagine that I will make that either at the end of this month or early next month!

Today we sent out lots of CDs to 14 different countries! I made a pretty cool list last night Β over the various territories, from the most popular to the least! It’s quite cool! Now I’m done marking all the CDs as sent on PayPal, so whoever has ordered will have received a notification!

It’s 1 year and 8 months since last time I/we had a rendezvous with the Post Office, so it was good to finally send something physical out! I’m very appreciative of all of those people who’ve bought my digital releases while I’ve been sick and to those who have signed up to my Patreon!

I’m happy to be back in business!

 

Q&A on my YouTube tomorrow + Downloads for my Patrons!

Make sure that you PRE-ORDER your signed copy of my NEW album before/on the 16th of November! Tomorrow I’ll be sending out the 1st batch of pre-orders. I’ll also send out downloads to Patrons on my Patreon page, so if you want to hear some of my new songs before anyone else then you can go and sign up here:Β My Patreon!

Tomorrow I’ll go LIVE on my YouTube channel so make sure that you join me on there if you have any questions!

Finally.

The loose threads will not be loose for much longer.

I look forward to releasing my 3rd body of work and I think that this will finally give people a full impression of who I am and what I can do as an artist!

I cannot wait! πŸ™‚ I feel very encouraged by the fantastic feedback that I’ve received so far! Now the challenge is to get people to hear about it & spread the word!

For those who’ve followed me since 2008 you might remember my very 1st music video & version of “Battle For The Mind,” in addition to my 1st version of “If The Dead Ones Could Talk.”

The sound and style changed drastically from those two 1st demos to my first Demo EP “State of The Union” in 2009, and my rock’n’roll changed and evolved further with my
“Battle For The Mind” Demo released in 2010.

There’s been a constant musical evolution first within heavy metal and then with the classical music, while there were other musical directions & ideas brewing in the background!

If anyone had told me back in 2005 that I would have ended up shredding violin virtuoso pieces on a 7 string guitar, while learning how to sing “Queen Of The Night,” in addition to changing my genres and alternating between songwriting styles, I would never have believed them! Not at all! Yet here I am.

I cannot believe how artistically and technically adventurous the choice of music turned out to be!

If I could turn back time I would still have pursued music, because I knew back then that if I had not, then I would have been haunted for the rest of my life by “what if?”

I had no idea that I had it in me to be a virtuoso. I started late. I was just going to write songs and be an artistic spirit.

Yet now I find myself here:

Who knows what the future might hold in store for me, but I hope that this is just the beginning. I have too much unreleased music and ideas that I want to put out there!

Thanks a lot to those of you who’ve supported my work! Please keep on doing it! πŸ™‚

Thank you!

 

 

NEW song & video to be released TODAY!

Just a quick note to the people who have subscribed to my blog πŸ˜‰ A new music video will be released today onΒ My YouTube πŸ˜‰
