Mixing for album #8 is DONE!! Mike sent the last two songs for my feedback and approval. I am genuinely pleased with his engineering skills, and of course his drumming too!
So what’s next?
Onto mastering, which is a bit tough to describe. I can say that when a cd is mastered properly, the clarity can be really stunning. Some sound like they are under a bowl of Jell-O, but we are going to make sure this album will sound almost three-dimensional.
And then what?
I have to release the first single! I do not have a release date for the album, and for once it feels good not to apply pressure on myself. Why should I? I’m an independent artist, not chained to a record label where things have to be done yesterday. I would like to get the single (and possible video?) out before the summer is over. If the album comes out in September/October as I keep saying, then great.
We’re getting closer, people…
