This week marks a very important anniversary in my life as a music artist. A year ago I recorded my sophomore album “Colors of Life” at Tedesco Studios in NJ during a three-day recording stint from 11/11 – 11/13/13. I still cannot believe it has been a full year since I stepped foot in the studio to tackle this benchmark point in my life. So much has transpired in this past year that it doesn’t seem real that 12 months have literally passed since the recording session.
I still remember when I first started brainstorming on the concept of a new album and figuring out what exactly I wanted to say. I refused to just record some random songs that held no relevance to my life and did not speak to who I am as an artist. It had to be just right since this album symbolized a rebirth of my artistry that would establish precedence for my listeners/supporters. Therefore I took my time to select the right tunes to reinterpret and write original pieces from the heart. I also cautiously selected the key players to help me bring my vision to life. Did I have some road bumps along the way? Oh yea! Did I question if I was on the wrong path? Heck yea! However, did the project surpass my expectations? Hell yes! I could not be more proud of the end result that is “Colors of Life” and be more grateful to the gifted individuals who have contributed their time and talent to helping me share this project with the world.
Now it is has been a year since I stood in the recording booth and I am able to look back positively at all the blessings that have come my way as a result of the recording ranging from live interviews on the radio to new supporters of my music journey. I am confident that the word will continue to spread about “Colors of Life” and my voice will be able to touch many more. As an artist what else could I hope to achieve? Filled to the brim with excitement, I look forward to the next year and what beautiful mysteries it holds for me and my music. I hope you all continue to stick around so you can find out too! Thanks for the support. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
