Happy New Year! A Sunday Sounds of a Different Sort

Happy New Year! I hope everyone’s first day (or more depending on where you are!) has been lovely.

Tonight’s Sunday Sounds is of a different fare. Instead of one song, it’s two (and even then, let’s just call them “demos” shall we?), which I have done before but never by the same band. It’s also super low-fi, incredibly rough, and pretty unheard of… because it’s mine. Fables and Medicine were written quite some time ago, recorded last summer via the built-in microphone of my ’06 MacBook Pro, and listened to by probably only one person other than myself. However, “Fables” has been up at MuseKitsch.com for a few months so that might not hold true, but I’ve never really made mention of the song or the project (at least in explanation; I’ve used that name for ages) until now.

This isn’t entirely shameless self promotion, it’s more of a divulgence. For so long I’ve kept my music so close to the vest. I cannot even begin to explain how strange and disconcerting it is to even write the words “my music” for all to see. But I want to. I need to. While my love for music is certainly no secret, very few know that I write my own. This confession of sorts can partly be attributed to the whole new year’s resolution high, but the truth is much of it has just been brewing for far too long.

Please be gentle enjoy!

Fables:

Medicine:

Like I said, these are rough as hell, as the production quality (if it can even be called that) is laughable, and I know that my vocals need work! But it’s better to improve upon something rather than never try, right? ;)

    You’re amazing for putting yourself out there like this and I really admire that. And the songs are absolutely lovely, you really have such a sweet voice. Thanks for sharing these and, whether or not you decide to keep sharing them, I hope you continue to write and record more. :)

      ♥ SO MUCH LOVE. ;_; Thank you so much!

      I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to reply; I wanted to write something sowonderfully deserving of your kindness, but I’m just floored with emotion. Honestly, I cannot express how much your words mean to me– just THANK YOU.

      (Apologies for the excessive use of capitals!)
