This past year, I released 40 songs.
I have a bunch of new songs. As much as I would like to go into a professional studio and spend $10,000-$20,000 to record them, I don’t think that is feasible right now.
Most of the songs I’ve recently released I recorded in my living room. I would like to continue to do this, but I would like them to be better.
I’ve always moonlighted as an “Engineer” (and by that I mean: wished I was a better one! haha) and I feel like I am a couple pieces of gear away from making recordings that I’m really proud of right here in my home.
It’s also a more sustainable platform for me…I write a TON, and these ideas can either sit on a hard drive, or I can put them out into the world. You can either like them, or not. You can either preview them and buy/stream them, or not.
Some Gear I Really Need:
1 Shure SM7 Vocal Mic *BOUGHT!!!*
1 BOSS CE-2 Chorus Pedal *DONATED!!!*
1 set of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x *BOUGHT!!!*
1 set of Yamaha HS8 Speakers *BOUGHT!!!*
1 drumset *BORROWED!!!*
Currently working towards/saving up for:
Universal Audio Apollo Twin Thunderbolt
A used piano off of Craigslist
AKG 414 Guitar Mic $650 on eBay
C 703 Bass traps: $100 on Amazon
*Possibly* Sonarworks headphone and room calibration…a trusted friend said he couldn’t live without this and to thank him later
Anything that is raised here because of you saintly human beings will chip away at this list. Anything above and beyond will go towards pressing copies of these new songs!
Thank you so much I love you!!!
