There’s something very humbling about having 100% control of your creative endeavors. Of course it’s also very financially futile, but all the frustration, all the annoyances, the long nights, the shitty moods & the great end feeling once you’ve accomplished something is a reward you can’t top. It’s very interesting when certain people claim to have this control, yet are relying on others & simply taking credit for it. Why take credit? Why not give props to talented people? The people who’ve helped you get to where you are.
Anyway, I guess the point is I spent a month mixing this upcoming EP on my shitty old computer in an outdated Cubase program, learning why people pay other people to do these things, and I have so much more respect for people that do this everyday in microseconds. I’m really proud of the outcome & hungry for more.
This is probably a really fucking dumb thing to proclaim, but this band doesn’t have any money. We can’t pay people to do our shit for us. We write/record/produce/book everything from music to video to dumb blog post. Nobody sponsors us (what up DORITOS! j/k), we don’t pay people to review our shit. We go on tour and barely make ends meet. Just want to say ‘hell yes’ to all the other people doing the same thing out there. There’s so many talented musicians out there doing it so much better, all in the name of love.
Think I ate too many girl scout cookies, gettin’ all sappy. Sorry y’all. Hope everyone’s doing well. Can’t wait to share our lil songs with you.
