15th of May 2016 Blog update

And boom! Half way through the month of May… This week has been a lot about my birthday celebrations, so I promise to put all that behind next week 😉 So lets get into some technical stuff. As you know I was lucky enough to get two GoPro cameras for my birthday. In today’s vlog update video I wanted to put the GoPro Hero Session 4 to test, so the whole vlog was filmed on it. First impressions is that the video quality is great, the sound is actually surprisingly good, but it does struggle with the wind noise a bit, so my apologies if my voice gets bit lost in few spots. As I said, this was a test and now I know 🙂 But without a shadow of a doubt, there is hours of fun to be had with them, and they will be providing some valuable footage as well.

So what did I learn this week?

  1. Surround yourself with good friends. They are priceless.
  2. Over indulgence is good for the soul from time to time, but it comes with a price.
  3. There are only 24 hours in a day, and sometimes you just need to accept it and not fight it 😉

This weeks song was a deep one, looking into addiction and how it can affect everyone around the person suffering from addiction. As usual the song is available to download from my Bandcamp page right now, all the links and more info on the song is in the blog post here:

No Tomorrow

As usual the Monday vlog is a catchup on my weekend, and would you believe it we had some glorious sunshine here in Dublin:

In Tuesdays vlog I talk about songwriting, as well as procrastinating and how to sometimes allow your self to do that:

In this weeks studio vlog I talk about how and why I try to capture authenticity over perfection in the studio:
