In 2004 I recorded and released an album under my initials, LHR, called ‘One Man Boy Band.‘ (link takes you to the free digital download page with the album, as do the rest of the links) It was a ridiculous pile of noise and silliness, and some people liked it.
In 2005, I recorded and released an EP called ‘LHRACEP,’ so titled because I released it at Anthrocon (ie. AC) and only really sold it there. The songs were more polished, people thought it was neat, I sold a decent amount of copies.
In 2006 I had 12 songs written, cover art by the talented artist Chris Goodwin, a room with a 16 Track digital recorder, new microphones, new guitar, and plenty of time on my hands.
Annnnnnd…I never recorded the songs. I recorded demos of some, but never actually made the album. It would be three years before I’d even try to record again, and I only managed to get one song out.
Why did I stop? Hell, why did I start? I wish I had gems and nuggets of wisdom but I don’t. Sometimes projects just start up, fly high, and then…coast.
The question is, do I revisit the old songs I never recorded and finish that old project…or do something completely new?
Or is four years just too much time and should I start rethinking why I’m even trying this crazy music thing?
I’ll keep ya posted!
