Update on Music Related Stuff for the Curious

Okay, I need to do a blog entry to tell everybody what’s up with my music things because I keep forgetting to do this.  Let’s see…

1) I started a band with some friends called Maximum Huge.  We’ve been recording songs and making videos.  We were aiming to finish an e.p. but we keep getting distracted with other things.  I think we may have about 5 songs ready to “drop” but I don’t want to make any promises on behalf of the band because… I just don’t know for sure.  It’s kind of a mix between a video making group and a band so sometimes it’s confusing to explain what we’re trying to do.

You can check out our videos on several video sites like youtube, funny or die, break, vimeo and some other places.  We have plans to do some more videos over the summer.

We also have a website but we need to do some work on it.

A lot of my creative energy has been put towards this stuff lately so I haven’t been able to write as much as usual.

2) But I am working on some solo music.  I’d like to finish it sometime this year but I haven’t given myself a deadline yet.  It’s kind of a relief to work on songs alone after going through all the compromises and conversations required with the band.  The solo stuff I can just do at my own pace and it doesn’t have to fit any specific conceptual whatever thing.

I have about 7 or so songs written for it so far but I don’t want to put anything out until I have 20 or 30.  I think what I want to do is just keep on writing until I have around 30 and then pick the best 10.  Something like that.  And I don’t know how long that will take.  So far the songs are all going off in different random directions.  I want to try to have some unity in the next collection but we’ll see.

3) If you are itching for some music I have 9 of my previously released records (some call them demos, I call them records) available for a free download here.  Seriously, there are probably 100 free songs you can get if you follow that link.  They’ve been available FOR FREE since April.  You can have them without paying money.  Does that make sense?  I can’t explain this any better I don’t think.

So to review:

1) Band stuff

2) Solo stuff

3) Free old music

Thanks a lot.  Hope everybody is having a cool summer.  I’m in Texas so I am definitely NOT!

Rock.

Jeff
