Scruffy, Indie folk-rock from Transylvania

New Indie Folker Album To Be Released On March 14

Posted by admin On March - 7 - 2012

Hello, dear friends!

Listen to one of the songs from the soon to be released Indie Folker record, titled “The Crack (Musical)” below:

Indie Folker – In The Dumpster Light | The Crack Musical | Mickey’s Song

I will be releasing this record containing the music I wrote for the “Fisura” play (to be presented on stage here in Cluj, Transylvania on the 14th of March – written by Flavius Lucăcel and directed by Victor Olăhuţ) and I am feeling rather nervous about how people will react to it. It’s an awkward feeling, because I never get that way before a release.

Songs for the play were written in Romanian, but I translated them for the album – I might just have an extra track in the original Romanian, but I haven’t yet decided.

Working on this project was like an obsession for me. I took serious time off from my work to get things done, and I have had music running in my head all day long – no matter what I did.

It is something I never did before. Wow. A musical. Other people singing my songs on stage… and it’s practically theater… where everything has to have it’s place in the play… It is generally a bigger project than a regular album. You have to approach the entire thing from a totally different perspective. It’s training that I very much enjoyed – and still do.

The good thing about being an indie musician, just a singer-songwriter, is that there is not much pressure when something like this happens. I’m not going to waste anyone’s money if I screw up (I’m not saying I ever do, haha) but there’s no big shot producer to make all the fine adjustments either… so you have to write good songs to get away with it… and I always try to write songs that I don’t have to defend after I release them. It’s good practice.

You can still download the song we did with The Wonder Fools, titled “Why?”. There is more Indie Folker & The Wonder Fools music coming in May and June, so you might want to come back for that.
