1 Down 7 to Go

I mentioned in an earlier post that my New Year’s Resolution is to finish my first album this year. More specifically, I hope to finish my album in April by recording 2 songs a month.

Last night I finished recording my song, “R.I.P. Our Love.”

I visited Willie Martinez’s recording studio twice for this song.

On Saturday, I recorded the vocals.

Although my songs might not always be the most cheerful, I’m actually quite smiley 🙂

I also recorded the acoustic guitar parts.

Last night, I added piano parts to the song.

And I finished my recording session by recording the drum parts.

Writing and recording 2 songs a month will be a lot of work…but I will try really hard to do this! 🙂

Only 7 songs to go!

On to the next song 🙂
