Full Frontal at Gatsby's on March 26, 2014 - Playing again at Gatsby's, immersed in one of my songs. This was a fast-paced night, no ballads this time.
It's been way too long since I updated this. I've continued doing open stages, and tried out a new one, O'Toole's Irish Pub & Grill, on the west side of Columbus. The owner liked what I did and offered me a gig, so I am, finally, playing my first show on Friday, April 4 from 7-10pm. I'm very excited, and more than ready.
I've also begun work on my top-secret album, and it's going well, though I'm still on the first song. My efforts to truly understand what's going on with all the mixing and mastering are valuable, but I have to exercise a lot of patience. After a month on one song, I am tempted to move on and go back to this one later, but the mastering process in particular is one that I want to at least come close to nailing down. I'm mixing tracks pretty well, but when it comes to getting the volume of the final song up near the level of professional quality material, it's still a struggle.
