Back in KC

Home again. A little anti-climactic, which I expected. Steph left today for a weekend camping trip, leaving me lots of space to work on music. While writing lyrics this evening, I realized that I already have music and lyrics written for 6 new songs, and there are 3 others with music but no lyrics. All in all, a pretty solid start on the new album.

Most of the 9 songs were written in the past year, but I'm reviving a few "classics." Fans of my first band, Pedestrian Survival Jump, might recognize Callisto, 5/9 and Morning Pales. Those songs were never properly recorded, and they deserve to be.

I'm also trying to figure out the strategy for album 2, which is either:

1. record demos, then recruit a band to record the album and play it out
2. record the real album now (there are lots of musicians available to do this) then find other musicians to play live after the album is out

Steph believes I should go for option 1, as she feels I will be more likely to find committed live musicians that way. However, option 2 is appealing because it doesn't involve any waiting, which I am notoriously bad at, and I can always start playing out by myself.

I'm really not sure what to do, but for now, I still have writing to do. And I'm planning on taking voice lessons, so no time is being wasted, really.

Oh, and if it wasn't clear from my last post, the tour was awesome. I made a movie to commemorate it!

I was glad to hear that the tour was a success. My vote is with Steph -- Option 1 is the way to go. CH
