The other seven songs were originals.
The 52 Project has forced me to write consistently and produce a lot more music than I am otherwise used to. While every song I’ve written for this project isn’t great, a lot of them are pretty good. So, it was a lot of fun to have the opportunity to record these songs and put my heart into them. The only problem is that now, I will have all of these songs that I love so much…how I will decide which ones to put on my next album?
Making my next album has seemed like such a slow process. While realistically, I only released “Love is Alive,” a little over a year ago, and that really isn’t much time at all….I am ready to share with you all more of what I have been doing lately. I am ready to have something tangible to show for the last couple years of writing. These demos are just another step in that process, and I am so thankful that I was able to record them!
Here are the originals that I recorded :
1. The Engagement Song
2. Before you Realize
3. Something Better
4. I’ve Built These Walls
5. Incessant Heartbeat
6. Everything but the Sky
7. I’m Willing to Bet
The biggest surprise for me, was the song I wrote on the mandolin, Everything but the Sky. (which you can listen to below). The mandolin sounded so great in that room, and it was so amazing to be able to hear it that way. I will definitely be writing more on the mandolin! I will post more about this song, with a better video sometime soon. Stay Tuned!
