Well it is finally happening. I’ve started the process of recording my debut solo orchestral album. I’ve written all the music, lyrics, arrangements, and had some help from friends with supplying beats and more throughout the album. It is a really exciting process to see all I’ve been working on over the past year finally culminate into a tangible product. Still a bit of a journey to go…. but it is gratifying to see all the hard work coming to fruition.
As of right now, there are eight full tracks, seven with lyrics, and one instrumental – complete with chamber symphonic works, and more. I didn’t want to write a classical album by any means, but there are elements of that, plus my own take on contemporary/pop music/film scoring. It is ambitious to say the least, but it is a really satisfying challenge for me to take on. Keep checking in over the next couple of weeks for updates on the process, and how everything is shaping up.
