Life has been hectic lately. I spent most of last month with a lingering flu. I've spent most of this month getting ready to move (locally), which I am really excited about! Needless to say, not as much time has been spent working on music as usual.
That being said, I didn't want to go all month without bringing you something new...well, at least to most of you. Today you can download my song "Better Days" ft. Chris Riedl for free. This is not a new song, technically, but it has only been distributed to people who signed up for my mailing list during a very small window of time a couple years back. At that point, it was fresh out of the studio session and hadn't been properly mixed down.
So now I'm happy to give you a listen to the final, polished, re-mastered version of "Better Days". It was actually the very first song I recorded when I returned to making music again. It was produced by Big Ice, and recorded and mixed by Kyle Devine.
A little story about making this song. I had originally intended on recording the chorus myself, but I was having trouble delivering it in a way that sounded decent that night. Although it was already 10 or 11pm, Kyle called one of his friends on a whim to see if he wanted to come help out with the song. Within an hour, Chris was there, and he immediately brought the song to life with his chorus vocals! He also added in some piano riffs that brought a rich, soulful vibe to the track. I loved how the song came together, and was very thankful for both Kyle and Chris' contributions in bringing it to life.
I hope you enjoy it.
More coming next month...
