CD Project Update #21 – A Revised Timeline

I was in the studio on Wednesday (23rd November) and completed the backing vocals to “Don’t Turn To Me Now”, “Jigsaw” and “Seeing Stars.” I’ve only got the backing vocals for three more songs to go and all the recording for the CD will be done.

Man that is going to be a load off my back but of course that doesn’t mean that the CD is ready to release.

The next step after recording is for the tracks to be mixed down and balanced by Anthony Stewart. After discussions with Anthony about this, we’ve worked out that this next process is looking like being finished by the end of February 2012.

While the mixing of the tracks is taking place I’ll be making sure that the artwork for the CD will be completed by the same time. Once this is done we are then well and truly on the home stretch.

With the mixing and the artwork completed, all that needs to be done is for the tracks to be mastered by Neville Clarke at DiskEdits and then for the physical product to be printed and put together which will be done by Alec Gheude at Pro Advanced Media.

Only after all of that will I then have my own debut CD in my hot little hands. I’m anticipating that this will happen by the end of April 2012 so there’s a little bit more of a wait ahead for me but I tell you what…

It’ll be well worth it.

Peace,

Corey :)

Movember 2011 – My Progress

This year I decided to join the many thousands of men all over Australia who are growing a moustache during the month of November to raise funds for Beyond Blue and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

I thought about doing it last year just to see how I would go but I missed out. I made a pact with myself that I would give it a go in 2011 and now as I now move into day 23 of Movember 2011 I’m realising why I don’t grow a moustache in the first place.

First of all it’s been really itchy just above my top lip for a little while now and quite frankly I’m over it and secondly, it’s a really unattractive look.

Even right now I just want to go and shave the bloody thing off but I did make a promise to my mate Bryan Foley and the team that I belong to called the “Improver Groovers” that I would stick it out to the very end.

Besides, there’s only 7 more days to go before I can resume my normal facial hair growing activities.

Here are some images that have tracked my moustache growing over the past 23 days

Day 1 (Clean Shaven)

Day 4

Day 8

Day 16

Day 20

Day 23 (Today)

Not long ago someone told me that I was starting to look like porn star Ron Jeremy in which my reply was “I wish.”

At the end of the day though, the whole reason for putting myself through this follicular torture is to raise some money and this is where you all come into play here.

All you need to do is to go to http://mobro.co/coreystewart and click on the “Donate To Me” button underneath my profile photo on the top left hand side of the page.

Feel free to donate any amount you wish but remember, your donating to a couple of very worthwhile causes so dig in deep.

I wonder what my face is going to look like at day 30?

Peace,

Corey :)

CD Project Update #20 – Not Long To Go Now

My sincere apologies for the sporadic nature of these CD Project updates. I’ll try to do better from now on :)

In the months since my last CD Project update, the recording process has been a little stop/start with illness or unavailability of either myself or Anthony Stewart getting in the way however, I’m happy to say that all of the instrumental recording were completed a couple of weeks ago.

The Running Sheet

The only thing left to do now are the backing vocals.

Yesterday I had Alex Frost come in and put some vocals on a couple of songs “Seeing Stars” and “A Girl Like You” which turned out really well.

Alex Singing

My goal was to get all recording finished by the end of November and I’m happy to say that this goal is still very achievable.

I’ve now finalised the 12 songs that are going onto the CD. They are (in alphabetical order)

  • A Girl Like You
  • Don’t Turn To Me Now
  • Half Hearted Man
  • Jigsaw
  • Just One Kiss
  • Leave It All Behind
  • Missing You Already
  • Nothing Stands In Your Way
  • Seeing Stars
  • Shadows
  • The Back Of My Mind
  • We Can’t Get Together Anymore

I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the tracks that are left over but I’m leaning towards giving some music away as a way of promoting the CD. I’l keep you all posted as to what I decide.

I think now is the time for me to start putting together some ideas for the design and the pre and post launch promotion/marketing of the CD. Maybe a photo session is going to be needed as well.

So much to do, so little time.

Peace,

Corey :)
