Alternative title: Why I haven't been building much during the past few months.
I'm releasing my debut album in three parts (four-track EPs), the first of which is now available on YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, and pretty much every other platform. Genre is difficult to pinpoint, but most are describing it along the lines of "prog rock with strong 80s vibes"
Good stuff Terry! I definitely get the prog rock vibes from this. I didn't know you were a musician - you're really talented. The songs have very nice arrangements. Especially like some of the keyboard runs and accents throughout.
Thank you both! You're some of the first people to have heard it whom I've never actually met, which is a crucial litmus test for any emerging artist, so I'm very glad the reception has been positive so far!
As for the drum beats, I've kept them minimal (if not totally nonexistent) on purpose. In most instances, I found that they detracted more than they added when I gave them too much emphasis. That's probably just my preference though.
I listened to the YouTube EP. Good music but it feels stuck between the past and present with the electronic sounds and everything else sounding like they came from different places though I enjoyed it anyways. Good work.
The main track from my debut EP, "The Ghost of Mr. Hyde", now comes with its own music video! Those of you who enjoy music videos (but have grown weary of corporate shills dominating the landscape) will likely appreciate it.
