27th of March 2016 Blog update

So as soon as we managed to wash off the green face paint after St. Patrick’s day, the easter is here. This week my long stint of shows and sessions came to and end and I got few days of rest 🙂 Now I am back to my normal schedule, apart from the easter celebrations, which are quite special here in Ireland this year.

This year is 100 years from the Easter rising that took place here in Dublin 1916 and was a start of a series of an events that lead to Ireland getting its independence. So Dublin is going to be mad this Sunday and Monday. But Hopefully the weather allows me to get out and vlog about it for yo guys.

But before all that, let’s have look at what I got up to during the week just gone. And lets start with few lessons:

  1. This weeks song did require quite a lot of effort in the studio and I learned that by expanding to a different styles of production you actually get to learn much more than by sticking to what we know.
  2. Persistency always works better than trying to find a shortcut. This is a lesson I seem to be coming back all the time 😉
  3.  Sometimes it is better to recover and let your body heal, than push yourself.

And then on to this weeks posts. This weeks song “Blood on my hands” was a last part to a trilogy of songs. Read all about it here:
