The first song pack was released on 5/24/19 and was recorded at a myriad of locations in San Diego, over a period of three months. The song "Catch Me If You Can" is an upbeat rocking country jam that talks about playing cat & mouse with fear. "Let's Not Be Friends" is a solemn but redemptive country ballad that tells a story of restoration after a heartbroken past, and "Taking On The World" is a bluesy rock power anthem for the lone musician carving their own path in the industry. Rock and Country Blues can be found on Apple Music, Spotify, or any other Major digital music distributor.
The second song pack has a scheduled release date of 7/2/19 and was recorded at Big Fish recording studio over two days' time... hence the title. The album's first track is "Captivating Gaze" written for Hildy's wife Rachelle, and tells the story of a single man completely taken captive by the stare of a woman that he loves. The second song, "Good Man" was written about Rick Muchow, a longtime Pastor and mentor to Hildy. It tells the behind the scenes story of a man's character, far beyond the simple persona that's expected of that role. The final song is titled, "Slow Down" and is a country blues song that warns us all against the tyranny of the urgent over the priority of what matters. Two Days' Time can be found on Apple Music, Spotify, or any other Major digital music distributor as of 7/2/19.
Details of the third song pack to be released at a later time.
In 2018, I unsuccessfully attempted to fully fund an acoustic or full band album through an IndieGogo campaign with rewards of CD's. This was disheartening, but I learned a lot about how the goods of the music industry are consumed in modern music. I had a choice, give up on this project or adapt and overcome.
With the help of some side investors, I was able to fund a new kind of project... one not based on an album, but of "Song Packs"... these 3 Song Packs will be digitally distributed, with the initial funds from both the IndieGogo campaign and the side investors going towards the ongoing production of music... (No More Campaigns)
There will be full studio recorded packs. There will be acoustic style in home packs. There will be live music packs. I expect the first Song Pack to be released May of 2019. As I try to innovate and creatively navigate creating this music, I want to thank those that have stuck by me and personally invested in seeing this music see the light of day.
