Now that my songwriting period is over, I just want to give a quick update on what is happening next. I’m very happy with many of these songs (really the first time I’ve reached that point), so I am prepared to do what it takes to get them out there properly. I have lots of ideas of my own, and I’m also doing loads of research and reaching out to people to develop a plan so I can find the best ways to:
- Record it in a way that sounds great and isn’t boring, which probably means I have to go outside of my bedroom, and may mean I need to find another musician or two to help!
- Digitally distribute and possibly have a physical release too.
- Get the attention of platforms that can actually get my music to new people, like bloggers, curators, local/indie radio, etc.
- Hopefully get better and better gigs by continuing to pester artists, venues and promoters (with now better songs); participating in busking and similar schemes; and finding more creative performance opportunities (…with or without permission) like I’ve done on the Flogging Molly Cruises, etc.
