Hi Friends & Fans! I’m SO excited to announce that over the last 3 months, I’ve had the privilege of working with Producer Bryan Steele. As you may or may not know, I’ve been writing a TON of new songs over the last 6 months. It’s been SO much fun “re-inventing” my sound into a new genre, which I am now calling “vibey alternative electro pop”, and Bryan has been a key factor. He’s a seasoned producer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and recording artist, with the ability to add really cool, current sounding drum & bass tracks to the songs, as well as great contemporary chord progressions! I’m absolutely THRILLED with the results and we’re still only in the writing / pre-production stage! I am BEYOND excited about this new music and SO grateful for Bryan’s help! Stay tuned for more details! ~EB
Hello Friends & Fans! I’ve been SO inspired lately and I just felt compelled to share with you that I’ve been writing A TON of new songs for an eventual solo album… About half the songs I’ve been writing in my sleep (I’m not kidding, lol!), and so when that happens (usually between 4-6:00 am), I wake myself up and sing them into my iPhone so I can develop them later. My “voice memo” app has replaced the old days of a boom box to get my ideas down in a hurry! I have to say, I truly LOVE technology…
Anyway, I want to write about 30-40 songs and then pick the very best 10-14 to actually record and produce, so I’m still not ready for the studio… I’ve written a few songs lately with an incredibly talented piano player Julian Sundby. Julian puts some really beautiful chords to my melodies! (pictured above is Julian’s “magic piano” : )
It’s been quite a journey switching genres… I’ve been studying my favorite new artists on Pandora such as Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Ellie Goulding, etc – studying the production in myopic detail so I can be ready for the studio. I’m really loving vibey electronic and EDM elements, so I really want to create new music that is a fresh departure from what I’ve done in the past, but yet something that’s still me, just a “new me” : )
More to come later… just wanted to share what I’ve been up to lately… XOXO ~EB
