So, for awhile now I’ve been goofing around recording guitar tunes at home. The process is so fun compared to what it was twenty years ago, when I had a 4-track cassette recorder and had to spend hours trying to make a lousy sounding tape of myself.
So for the last few months I’ve been writing tunes, and in addition to my Mac, I’ve added some tools along the way to make recording easier and better. At last I’ve decided to release my first collection of songs, a five-track EP entitled “Gathering Storms”. I am by no means an amazing guitarist, but it’s fun and satisfying to be able to create something that is all your own. These songs run the gamut from “Soundtrack-ish” to full on hard rock to one tune that borders on electronica/techno.
As I am fully aware that I am nobody, and there is approximately zero incentive to buy an album from me I have decided to add a slight twist. I am a big believer in adopting pets. I have adopted two dogs myself, and the second, Bear has been my best friend for 5 years now. So if anyone were to choose to buy my little project from Bandcamp I will be donating 50% of the proceeds to “Philly Bully Team”. They are a Philadelphia-based rescue organization that specializes in Pit-Bulls, but also find homes for other breeds and even cats!
The album can be downloaded here:
It will soon be up on all streaming platforms, and any sales for the next month, half will be donated by me to phillybullyteam.com !
