So what happened to my solo project/solo album? I've decided to put in on the back-burner for the time being. I took down my videos and will revamp my project in the future. I realized during my writing process that I need more time developing my vocal skills. Especially since I really want to excel on the vocal aspect of my project. As well as really concentrate on good song writing.
Also, I've been dedicating more time to my bass playing. I have been asked to fill-in for a gig at the end of September and concentrating on learning that band's material for that gig. Even for my own solo project, I will likely play bass and do vocals live and seek 1 or 2 guitarist + a drummer for the live material. Or even possibly put a band together using my material and front as a vocalist/bassist. Time will tell as I have been very occupied lately.
In my daytime professional career, I have some big changes occurring. I am leaving the bodyshop I have been working for as an appraiser/estimator since returning to Calgary, and starting a desk job with an insurance company. Starting mid-September. Very exciting!
I have also started jamming with another group of guys playing only bass in a hard rock style so unsure if that will evolve into a full band. They still are searching for a new singer so it is in the development stages at this point. They already have material written so I would primarily only play bass and not really be involved in the song-writing.
Of course this is all underneath my priority of playing lead guitar with Syryn which is still my bread and butter of playing music. I still love to shred and that will never change. I just like to involve myself musically as much as possible. In all, I am so happy to have some exciting changes and big plans materializing. Keep an eye out... ;)
