OCEAN SOUND DAY #2

It’s incredible how tremendously energetic I feel when doing what I love and loving what I do.

It’s insanely difficult to achieve just what I expect of myself when doing things the way of which I always have felt a need to do them. To find the right moment is the key. Something that I find easier if the task was to convince an expecting crowd that my songs are worth a listen, like when playing live in front of an audience. But right now, it’s all about recording the songs onto tape. And this time around I have decided that every song will be recorded live with my guitar and my voice in one take. So I cannot fuck up. But of course I can do as many takes as possibly worth doing before killing myself, ’cause that one magic performance is what I strive for. So when playing live in front of people can be pure pleasure, playing live in the studio can be a pain in the ass. Because you can’t just go on to the next song on the list before you have nailed the one you are working on. And of course you have the aspect of spending money instead of earning so you better do it right. This sounds an awful lot of unprofessionalism when it comes to my live shows (as I suggest that I don’t care), but I guess you forgive me. I am just trying to make a point.

What I wanted to say is that after another 16 hours of singing my heart out I still feel that I can do another 16 hours or so. Because I just love it. And it pours me so much vigor to be doing what I love. Loving what I do is something else. That’s just part of being a singer and songwriter…

Peace & Understanding,

BTW – today I recorded another 3-4 songs… LANDING, HOLD YOUR HANDS UP HIGH, SO BAD OF YOU, BOUNDARIES TO SHAKE. Now you got the titles. Music comes later. It’s all talk, talk, talk for now…
