Last weeks studio session was a complete disaster because I was fighting yet another head cold and my voice wasn’t up to the challenge of singing the rest of the songs.
We did try one song but I sounded like I was singing while holding my nostrils together and let me tell you, it wasn’t a good start to the day.
This recent experience has really taught me a lesson about how important it is as a performing musician to maintain a healthy mind and body.
It seems really obvious but it is amazing how easily a live performance (or a studio session) can be affected with even the slightest amount of sickness going through the body or negativity going through the mind.
I’ve rescheduled the session for either next Tuesday or Wednesday (22nd or 23rd of December) and I hope that all of the vocals will be done by then which will then free up my time to concentrate on getting guitars, keys and maybe some backing vocals completed in January 2011.
