Another day, another song [Album 2 diaries - #14]

Hello my butterflies!

Just like yesterday, I was briefly called to the studio today to hear yet another new song! I had heard a bit of this song before and liked it then, and now it's finished. It was given a new title, and though I liked the old one, I really like this new one. And the song itself is very cool. I particularly love that the instrumentation is pretty simple, but my songwriting partner Mario M found ways to take the song to places you wouldn't expect, which makes it very interesting. I'm really happy that this was finished and I'm even happier with the turnout!

Play on words [Album 2 diaries - #13]

Hello my butterflies!

Today I was quickly called into the studio to hear a new song that my songwriting partner Mario M. wrote for the album. It's a very fun song and I also feel that it's very me. My partner knows me so well! I like the title because it's a play on words. You have to make sure to spell everything right to get the right message. I'm really excited with how everything's coming along!

Revisions [Album 2 diairies - #12]

Hello my butterflies!

Today I showed my songwriting partner Mario M the song I wrote yesterday. As with all songs, it did need some revisions. We worked on it a bit and made things flow a little smoother and overall I'm happy with where it is right now. It can still use some work, but I really like it. I also recorded the demo for it today, so we can call another one done! Right now, it's unclear whether it'll actually make the album, but I'm pretty satisfied with the song and I can't wait to write more songs in the studio in the future!

Ah, creativity [Album 2 diairies - #11]

Hello my butterflies!

Today was a really great day! First, I was shown part of a song that my songwriting partner Mario M was working on. I love it, but he's not done with it yet. I'm excited to hear the finished product though. It's great that he knows me so well, because so far it's very me.

Also, today I got to write a new song. By myself! In the studio! Usually, I write a song on my own time and then I bring it into the studio and show it to Mario M and we either work on making it better or it gets shelved for one reason or another. But today, I got to work with the studio equipment and get the ideas flowing in a new way. And flowing they were! I finished the whole song in less than an hour and I'm really happy with it! Ah, creativity. =]

And we're back! [Album 2 diaries - #10]

Hello my butterflies!

I know it's been a while since I've done an entry in the album 2 diaries, but I'm back!

Today went great! My songwriting partner (Mario M) presented me with a new song today and I love it! It has a cool relaxed feel, but it's really cheerful. It has this groove to it that makes me dance too. I really like it! Also, it was really easy for me to pick up and play around with. We recorded the demo for it and I'm really happy with how it turned out! I'm excited to hear the rest of the songs that we have yet to write for this album!
