about my album "This"
one year after I recorded "People Like You," I got
the chance to record again; this time in an actual studio...and
I could hardly wait!
the time, my parents were living in Indonesia and I was taking
care of their home in Madison, WI. I was cleaning chimneys
for a living, which gave me quite a bit of free time while
earning good money, and the rest of my time I spent recording
was very a very different experience than recording "People
Like You." I had to get used to working with others -- an
engineer, and other musicians. I found this very challenging at
times, but meeting the challenge was, as it always is, a good
growing experience. I really felt like a kid in a candy store
-- in the studio was a hammond organ, a piano, lots of percussion,
and...a synthesizer! Wow!
to do new versions of 4 songs from "People Like You."
These I thought had the best potential of getting record labels
interested in my music. Of course, I was very innocent (as most
twenty-somethings are) and nothing ever happened in that regard.
However, it was a fun dream to entertain for a while! (by the
way, I had no idea that a sea urchin -- that which I'm holding
on the cover -- can be poisonous!)
I certainly do hope that you enjoy "This."
