Demos part 2 [Album 2 diaries - #18]

Hello my butterflies!

Today we finished the two demos that were left to do on Wednesday. With the first song, we broke it down, played around with keys and then demoed it when we had it where we liked it. The second song went quicker and I must say, the more I hear it, the more I need everyone to hear it! I'm very excited about this song.

I'm really happy because now we'll either write a few more songs or go with the ones we have and get started on pre-production. Either way, the next steps are coming and I cannot wait! =]

Demos [Album 2 diaries - #17]

Hello my butterflies!

Yesterday, while listening to the demos for my songs, we saw that some songs didn't have a demo. This happened either because we were on a tight schedule and were just going into the studio for a few quick minutes and/or our session ended before we got to do it. So today we did demos for 3 songs that didn't have one. We still have 1 or 2 to do, but I feel like we got a lot done today.

Meeting time! [Album 2 diaries - #16]

Hello my butterflies!

Today I had a quick meeting with my label about the album. Since we're already at the point where we have enough songs for the album, we sat down and listened to what we have to make sure that everything's cohesive and will work together. We've been working with a lot of cool and different sounds, so I was very interested to see just how cohesive it would all be. Everything works right now and I'm happy about that. I'm also really excited because being at this stage means that recording comes soon after!

Yes. Just yes! [Album 2 diaries - #15]

Hello my butterflies!

With my senior year of high school (!!!) approaching (I start Monday), we haven't been in the studio much lately. But now we're back!

Today I heard the demo for a new song that my songwriting partner Mario M wrote. An interesting factoid about this one is that I originally thought of the concept and actually had started on the song. Then I brought what I had to Mario and he made it into what I heard today. My only reaction to this song is yes. Just yes! This song probably in the top 3 of the songs we have for the album because I just love it! The lyrics are so perfectly funny and sarcastic and exactly what I wanted for this song. The music is super cool because it's really different. And there's this cool little thing that happens at the end and it's just the icing on the cake. I could go on but basically I'm just really happy about this song! =]
