Well I've tossed it around for months and I have finally decided that I am going to name my first CD. For a long time I thought about just having it self-titled because everything I was coming up with was either cheesy or risky. But in a flash of inspiration the other day, I decided on “Never Too Late” (for the record, that is “not” the cover up above).
Not only does it have a certain ring to it but it explains circumstance behind the recording of the CD ( that is, my musical pursuits at age 37). Also, and more importantly, I feel that it is a great message to rally behind and one that I passionately support, want to encourage and shout from the rooftops.
What do you think about the title? Let me know in the comments below.
Oh! And about the CD itself, I have all my parts laid down and most of the lead stuff – that Doc and Tom Moncrieff are helping with.
Now it is just a matter of going through everything and doing some what I call “redlining” to make sure everything is the way we want it. Stuff like fixing errors, determining order of the songs, tweaking audio levels, some other techy stuff I don't understand and adding some purcusssion in certain areas to dress it all up a bit.
That said, I hoping to have something in your hands by early to mid February.
I have had the good fortune of having some very good crowds at my last few shows. I want to thank all of you for coming, showing your support and singing along. It is fun partying with all of you and it is way cool hearing the whole bar sing stuff back at us.
I also want to thank EB's, Ed's no Name, Twin Bluffs, and the Hei n Low for putting us on over the past month. And Puff out at the L-Cove for letting me Hi-jack the PA to play a few impromptu tunes a few weeks back for Levi's Birthday party.
Overall, it has been unbelievable meeting so many new people, all from different walks of life. That is one aspect that I didn't expect – and really enjoy – when I started this whole trip. Good stuff.
Be on the look out for some more shows coming. I've been chit chatting with a bunch of local venues and may have an opportunity down the road in LaCrosse for some of you in that area.
Have a good one!
