CD Project Update #20 – Not Long To Go Now
November 22, 2011
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.
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
- Just One Kiss
- Leave It All Behind
- Missing You Already
- Nothing Stands In Your Way
- Seeing Stars
- 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.
