AZ Music Project had a great jam session? Showcase? Whatever - last Friday night. I had someone record my performance of Hoochie Coochie man. The vocals are a bit rough at times, but pretty good overall I think:
But the performance of the night came from a 16 year old girl. Dig this:
I talked to Jayce a bit afterwards, and she said she wants to make a career out of singing. Well, shit. So did I when I was 16. I still do. I hope she sticks with it, and has better luck than I did. Heck, I may write a song or two with that voice in mind - something I’ve never done before - and hope she’ll record with me. I think she’s that good.
I also spent a lot of time working on my new songs. I’m still not done, but I can see the finish line. Yeah, I’ve seen it before, and yeah, I wound up being unhappy and made changes, and yeah, said changes included redoing most of the vocals. But I’m feeling optimistic about what I have now. I have to do 3 more; I may get them done tonight, but certainly by the end of this week. That means I hope to have them out to the world sometime on Sunday.
Time will tell.
I’m ready to move on to finishing my book, the new video project, and gearing up to start gigging again. I can’t help but feel a sense of urgency about all these things.
