So I did it. I recorded 6 songs, that I wrote.
I had the help of some amazing friends/artists bring these songs to life.
I know these songs are not anything special. However, I am proud.
I feel the same way I would assume a father does,
after his son gets to first base, during his first tee-ball game.
Proud. Maybe your son got tagged out when the next batter came up.
But still damn happy and accomplished that he created that son, and his son did something.
I made this record. I don’t care what it does. I did it, and that’s all that matters!
I also kind of want to go into the subject matter of the songs on this EP.
The EP is titled “I Wish I Had”.
Everybody wishes they had done something in their life, that they didn’t.
Maybe it isn’t a regret, just curiosity. These songs aren’t typically about regret either.
They’re more of a collection of feelings that I’ve had about a collection of people in my life.
Yeah, they’re generally about ex-girlfriends. But when I wrote the songs, my main idea was having these songs relatable to EVERYBODY. I tried to keep gender out of it. I only have one song where I mention gender. Because it honestly doesn’t matter.
I know the lyrics are nothing amazing
However, they are relatable. And I believe that is the strong point in all of these songs.
Everybody has either been left, or left somebody else.
Everybody has wanted to be somewhere they’re not.
Everybody has missed someone or something.
These are the topics I wrote about. I can’t really write when I’m happy. Sorry.
I don’t necessarily still have the same feelings I did when I wrote these songs either.
So the ties that these songs had, to the people I wrote them about, don’t really exist anymore.
I wrote 4 out of 6 of these songs, over a year ago.
Of course I feel some of the feelings I mumble about in my songs, but not about those people.
Thats the cool thing about “art”. It can be interpreted in many ways.
Hence why I feel the main thing about these songs, is their relatability.
I plan on releasing these songs for free when I get them back from being mixed/mastered.
It shouldn’t take more than a few weeks.
I’d appreciate if everyone that knows about this project gave it a listen.
I don’t really give a shit if everybody thinks it sucks. I wrote and recorded these songs for me.
But of course it would be cool if people actually did enjoy the songs.
