I’m really bad at marketing myself, but from what I’ve learned so far, you’re supposed to do that as an artist. If you have something coming out, you need to “build the hype” and assume that someone actually cares about what you’re doing. The only exception to this rule, of course, is if you are Beyoncé . After many internal debates with myself, however, I have discovered that I am not, in fact, Beyoncé. So this is just a short post to say that, after two years of work, I’ve finally finished writing my debut album. This doesn’t mean that the album is done. The next phase is what I consider to be the hardest part of making music: recording. I really, really hate this part. Though it may come as a surprise to those who live with me, I don’t like hearing the sound of my own voice. I don’t believe in auto-tune, though, so I’m just going to have to get through it somehow. The last song I recorded, a Cat Power cover, took three months. I’m hoping that the rest of the songs on the album will not take that long to record. But, if they do….see you in two years! 🙂
Also, if you are a recording artist and have any tips on how to relax during the process (or if you know any good cat videos I can watch while I procrastinate), leave a comment down below!
