Scruffy, Indie folk-rock from Transylvania

Nothing without a plan

“City Of Light” has been in my repertoire for a few years now, has been played numerous times on local and national radio stations here, even went in heavy rotation for a very short period. The song hasn’t been published on a record before so I decided to re-record the thing and put it on Monsters In Rome. I didn’t think much of it originally but as time passed it grew on me. Now I decided it needs a video – I even have a script and everything. So I will be putting some hard work into that during the summer.
Before this however the title track of the record is going to have a video of it’s own first. We have a very interesting script for that one also. It is going to be all stop-motion, with lots of face painting (inspired from the We Have Band video – but totally different) and lots of other sweet stuff that will complement that track. I don’t want to ruin it by posting the script here, but I’m sure it will be very cool and everything. Just wanted to give a little insight into what is about to come.

Unfortunately I am forced to postpone some of my plans for this period because I am going to the UK next month so the new demos I was intending to record for my future album as well as Italy tour will have to wait a bit longer. I am sorry things worked out this way, but I am a one man operation for now (the term “indie” really does apply to me) so it was unavoidable.
But on the plus side: I have physical CD’s (yey) and I will be making those available for purchase very very soon (right after the Mojophenia competition), all copies are signed/autographed and pimped in every way possible. So buy them! Plz. 🙂

I will write again soon!

Recording time

Oh, Recording Time, a weekly event from now on designed to stimulate the interest in my soon-to-be- and already-been-recorded music. A number of you already know about my soon-to-be-published, limited-edition, very first musical album, as a few of you have also helped me out with some very appreciated and constructive criticism.
Anyway, we’ve taken the project a step further this weekend, as we’ve recorded a few more live videos, thus adding to our current collection of 1.

I was a bit surprised to find out that the camera we’re using is not up for most of the applications we’ve subjected it to, but it all came out looking decent in the end. At least, we agreed to agree on that.

BTW, before I forget: I’m getting a visit from an A&R rep of a national label sometime next week, but I doubt she’ll be able to convince me to sell them my soul.

Also, I’ve decided to start the recording of my second album early this summer, as I have loads of unpublished, unreleased and unrecorded material still. I think it will make a decent sounding one guitar+one voice album. Real indie folk this time.

Talk to you soon!
