After giving it much thought, I have decided to take a new direction with this website.
I realise these days that my main strength in music comes from piano compositions and my ability to sing and write songs on the guitar.
I also realise now that my passion for electronic music really comes from my hobby of synthesisers.
So what this means is, I see myself as more of a musician who sings, plays piano and guitar, and has a hobby for synthesisers.
I can do other things like play clarinet, violin and use electronic music software, but I consider this extra and not my main focus. This has been a major milestone for me as I though I wanted to be a producer with a studio and record other artists etc.
Now I know I don’t have to take the electronic music so seriously and that it is ok just to be a musician who has a hobby in synths. I don’t have to be able to do everything, record, arrange, mix, I can leave that to someone else, who has strength in that area.
Of course no one told me to put pressure on myself, but I guess that’s what I did.
In terms of the website, this means that I won’t be releasing much electronic music anymore. My material will be focused more on piano and guitar composition and maybe some sounds I have made on a synthesiser, who knows?
The only project I’m working on these days is Scrapbook Dreams, which I hope to release hopefully by the end of this year.
I feel a lot calmer these days as I know I am doing the right thing and I am being realistic and true to myself.
Love for all,
