A Treat For You All!

Standard

Hey everybody, check out this really great song I found while surfing around on the Ultimate Guitar forums. It’s really stunning and beautiful. Love it!

It’s done by two artists who call themselves Ditty and Mark. Here’s a short snapshot of their bio:

All music & lyrics written by Aditi Veena & Mark Aranha

♡ Ditty has curly hair, a pretty voice and collects matchboxes
★ Mark has a talent for tongue tricks, loves guitars, and can cook a mean steak ♫ Together, they make music

We would love it if you could share the music, tell us what you think or contact us to donate matchboxes!

Keep an eye on Ditty and Mark, I expect to hear great things from them!

New Music From John Mayer

Standard

Been looking to hear from John Mayer for quite some time. He recently released a new song called Shadow Days to radio stations. Check it out here:

The song has alot of mystery and guess-work surrounding it, with many people referring to it as John Mayer`s attempt at a country song.

In my opinion, if this is what John was going for, it`s a good solid effort, and I certainly look forward to hearing his new album Born And Raised when it comes out later on this year.

Post your comments and thoughts about the song in the comments below, I look forward to reading what you all think! 🙂

Something’s Missing

Standard

For the past several months, I’ve been busy writing and recording for a new album I’ve been working on entitled Alexis Drive.

A big part of the album’s concept revolves around that “Something’s Missing” feeling.

That feeling where everything should be okay, but you’re not alright and you don’t know why.

Check out and download this free song off the new album, this song’s called “Sons And Daughters”.

Stop And Smell The Roses

Standard

As an artist/musician, it’s easy to get caught up and pour hours into a project. While this is good, it’s important to remember a few things.

First off, why did you start making music or art? Chances are it was because you enjoyed it. If you’re feeling overly stressed out, you’re probably not having a great time. It’s okay to be stressed out, but if it reaches the point where you can’t express yourself efficiently, it’s a problem.

A good thing to do is take a break and go back to the basics. In the middle of recording an album or working on a new art collection, go ahead and write a few songs/make a few pieces just for fun. Make a few pieces that have nothing to do with the project you’re working on.

This will help you rediscover the fun side to your work and also help you relearn any basic skills you may have forgotten or haven’t used in a while.

Happy creating, and HAVE FUN! 🙂

Rejection

Standard

Whether you’re an artist or not, you’ll have to face rejection eventually in your life. The important thing to remember is that rejection doesn’t mean the end of the road. The Beatles were rejected by just about every record label they went to at first.

Imagine if they had given up on the first try.

You may be rejected once, but who knows? Maybe a bigger, better opportunity will arise! Keep your head up!

Drive: Update

Standard

Over the past several weeks, I’ve been busy recording a brand new album entitled Drive.

20120224-170407.jpg

The album’s lyrics and musical theme deal with corruption, insanity and violence. It’s got a heavier rock sound and is influenced heavily by the Foo Fighters.

I’m currently working on some weber artwork for the album, so I’ll share those with you all, maybe even ask you to help me choose the best one!

Thanks for your help!

P.S. In terms of a release date, I’m looking at late March, early April.
