14th of June Blog update

street artHalf way through June, it really seems like time does move faster when you are having fun 😀 This has been a week of getting focused and making some decisions that I’ve been putting off for a while. The acoustic versions of the songs for the new album are now all up on my blog, but with all of the developments with Melosity, rehearsals and few other things I have in the plans, the final recordings for the album are running late. So I decided to let the album take its time. Even though I work well with pressures of self set deadlines, that only works when it comes to me. But this time I wanted to include more people, a lot more people. So a bit of flexibility was required 😉 As a result, the new release date is, when ever all of us are ready 😀

But that does not mean I’ll be slowing down. Next week I’ll be posting a new song from the next patch of songs 😉 So upwards and onwards.

So let’s get in to this week’s blog posts. It was a busy week in the blogging front as well.

This weeks song “Let Me” is taking a little bit different approach to song writing, and I know this one will not be everyone’s cup of tea. Find out for your self here:
