What's Up With Kyle...
I really liked how this month's request cover turned out on Patreon. We're about to take requests for the next one and I'm itching to get a head start on it. It's been great getting to work on a new challenge every month. I'm totally ready for the next one! Recording music reminds me of being a kid. I ruined SO many tapes because it was such a rush hitting the little green circle button that said "record" and seeing what sounds I could capture. Recording has come a long way since but I still get that nervous rush every time I hit the button (it's red now).
This week I'm working on booking shows. It's funny saying that now, because for most of my adult life, that was just a normal week. It's easy to take things for granted when they become repetitive. I'm grateful to have a few dates on the books and can't wait to add more. We have a few shows coming up this month that you can check out at roshambeauxmusic.com/tour-dates . Let me know where we should go. This year feels a lot like starting over. That notion always seemed so daunting to me but anytime something feels like that I remind myself to say "I get to" instead of "I have to," and getting the opportunity to start over sounds amazing. I hope you can find your version of that. It's good.
What's Up With J...
This week I've been working on editing drum sounds for the live rig. Working through each song and dialing in the drums just right. I'm excited with what I've been able to do so far. The module I use, the TD-50X, is so extensive with the options it gives you. It allows me to perfectly dial in custom sounds and have something in the end unique to me. I remember day dreaming, when I was younger, about maybe one day owning one of these higher end modules and honestly never thought it was possible. But here I am tweaking on this thing with endless possibilities and I feel nothing but gratitude. I am so lucky to be able to do what I do. What a beautiful ride and it's not even over yet. I can't wait to let you guys hear and feel these new sounds. It's important not to give up your dreams. They are there for a reason. An inner voice guiding you to purpose. A slice of this existence your spirit yerns to experience. Even if at times it may seem impossible. You'll find your way. As always, to anyone who reads this....I love you very much. -J
