Not The Voice

It’s safe to say I will not be auditioning for The Voice.

I’ve watched the blind auditions for the current season and some of the battles. I’m not right for the show. Whether or not you think I can sing well, I’m clearly not the type of singer who excels on this program. I think I might do ok in the auditions that don’t air on TV, and I might even turn a chair if I got the chance. Maybe.

But beyond that? Nah. Practically no chance. I sing in different keys than most, or at least that’s been my experience. I can’t see doing well in one of their battles. I could be wrong, but I don’t intend to find out. I don’t see many fat guys around 50 on the show, and there are probably good reasons.

So, what will I be doing?

Same thing I’ve been discussing for the last few months. I need to finish the collection of songs for my wife - probable title is Love Songs & Lullabies; I originally figured Lullabies & Love Songs, but she likes the other way better, and they are her songs - and then I'll start work on the next album, to be released no later than 8/9/2019. Either concurrently or afterwards, I’ll self-publish my book and its corresponding audio book, Eyes In My Dream. I’m also thinking about creating a number of videos for songs old and new, and I may begin streaming regularly.

I have a full plate and no shortage of ideas.

I’m toying with the idea of gigging again, but if I do, I need to figure out how it will be better than any other run I’ve had. I have no desire to go out and play to no one for no money. I’m better off staying home and being creative in other ways.

That’s it for now. Be good.
