Scruffy, Indie folk-rock from Transylvania

Some friends payed a big shot national label a lot of money to release their album nationwide and distribute it in most of the major music outlets here in the country. My first impression was, “Wow! How lucky they are to be able to do that!”, but after some consideration i realized even if I could afford to pay someone that much money to release my precious music, I would have to be a really slow thinker to do so.

I am not saying that my friends are slow – but I AM saying they threw out an enormous amount just to see their CD’s on the shelves of some big shot music stores, when obviously nobody will care. At least, nobody important will. No person who buys their music at those places is going to pay actual money for something they’ve never heard about, period.

So here I am after six months of  recording my own songs, putting my every free time into hacking together a website, a twitter page, a myspace profile and everything else related to the web.

Although my album is only half-finished, my photo sessions are still to come – as well as all the video material I still have to pay for – I have a really strong faith in this do-it-myself thing. Hope to get the site running soon enough (the placeholder images I borrowed from Gary Jules and Joe Purdy for the time being are starting to get on my nerves already).

So now, with my first blog post behind me, I can get back to my coding and I still need to fix some guitars on Silver Screen. We played that song a few years back and my friend Sergius Gregory seemed to really like it.  Just hope it wasn’t all the beer talking.
