With all this songwriting, I have enough songs to begin to think of how I will record the next album, and I have a working title (which I also won't unveil for a little while, but hang in there, okay?).
Do I want to record it the way I recorded Ten Miles -- in a local studio with stripped-down arrangements? I am leaning towards this because I like the way it sounds and because I simply cannot afford to make a big-budget, highly orchestrated and slickly produced digital recording. The other option is to record everything myself at home, load it onto a disc, have someone do a poor man's master and self-distribute electronically only. That would still cost me some money but not the thousands that a studio recording would cost. I really want to get my music out there but for a lot of reasons cannot set up a crowdfunding effort just now.
Then, too, there's the prospect of making a separate recording of just my kids' songs. This would definitely be done at home and on the cheap, just me and my guitar. That's all I know at this point.
Here are a couple of demo tracks of songs I've written for Machane Jehudah camp, in 2013 and 2014 respectively. (I recorded Good Morning with some campers during our music chug, so recording quality is not the best.) If you like them and want lead sheets please contact me.
