Fantastic Saturday so far and the sun is just about to say hello properly on the balcony. Last weekend I started a new song Pocketful of Sand. Gracie Day was recording some songs for T489 and I mentioned I had an idea for a song but I couldn’t play this pattern of notes while try out my vocal at the same time. She was gracious and said ‘let me play it and you sing’. And that’s what we did. Thanks to that opportunity, it anchored the idea. By the end of the weekend ‘Pocketful’ was recorded fully. On piano. Steve (producer) loves it. I had Kiera Osment (emerging artist friend in Devon, UK) sanity check it, and we’re ready for the studio tomorrow to record it, plus ‘Honey Child’ and ‘NOW’.
Add to that an idea yesterday morning before work and spending this morning laying it down in the home studio and ‘just you, just me’ is another new song that imbibes the love of summer and that simple excitement you feel with your best peeps. Back to the song. And some balcony sun! As if Saturday wasn’t productive enough, Sunday was even better. Krizta Moon came into my home studio to record a few amazing unplugged songs as well as a T489 interview. Then it was off to the studio to try to get through 5 songs. In 4 hours that’s what we did, and more. Preparation is everything. Everything.
