It’s been a fair while since my debut album ‘Original Visions’ and it is fair to that music projects like this ALWAYS take longer than you first anticipate! I planned to have this album complete and ready for release by summer 2012 but alas that was not the case!
I have in fact been working on ‘Second Thought’ for the past two years. The bulk of it is produced by my good friend Jim Unison, we spent many long hours locked away in the studio staring at Logic, bouncing ideas back and forth, getting drunk and arguing over mix issues that weren’t even there! The album took a slightly different direction than first intended, leaning more towards the House/Electro sound and closer to my musical roots. I wrote most of the lyrics following the end of a 6 year relationship, and although the tracks may not directly be about that, it undoubtedly had a big impact on my writing and my outlook at the time.
I received the final album masters in the post a few days ago and felt like a kid at Christmas! It’s such a great feeling when you put so much work into a project and then see the finished results, take a step back and look at what you’ve created and the journey it took to get there. That’s why I do what I do, very little can beat that feeling and the things you experience and learn along the way.
So now I’m just mad excited to get it out there and share the music with you!
The first single ‘Shuffle’ will be released in July through SOI Records followed by ‘Colder’ feat John Gibbons & Scimon Tist so watch this space
