Just a little over 2 weeks and Ramshackle Life will be released. I'm excited and nervous, but mostly just really needing closure on this project. I already have some new ideas brewing and glad to be done with mixing ....my least favorite part of the process....and get back to creating...... my favorite part. I might actually try to hit a few piano friendly open mic nights at some point. We'll see if I can get up the nerve to do that. I don't perform solo as a rule, but I've worked out some pretty cool arrangements for playing some of the new songs live at my release party and it would be a shame if I only performed them that one time. Some of them will end up in the Technopagan line up for sure, but even though I have performed in numerous bands over the years, the idea of performing solo really kind of freaks me out. My songs are so personal to me that it feels really vulnerable being alone and exposed and naked for all to see. I know if I wanna take it to the next level....that's what I'm going to have to do.
