The album – All Is Right With The World, was released in Dec.2021. It is an album of the ten original singles released throughout 2021. With each song release, I also did a lyric video.
I look back at this album, and realize that I have developed a handful of music skills throughout the year. There are a lot of skills needed to self produce a song and an album.
By producing and releasing one song each month, each song became a project to itself.
I have become better at the songwriting process. I discover new things to develop and refine other processes that help the songwriting process. This year I spent more time on lyrics to have the song say more accurately, what I want it to say.
Music Recording & Production
Not only am I a songwriter, but as an Indie ( independent ) Artist, I do most things myself. This involves the recording and sound engineering process.
Getting a good vocal or ukulele track is not always easy, even after a number of tries.
Then I need to make the music sound good. I do this on the computer with audio software. Just like playing an instrument well takes time, being a good recording engineer also takes time and effort.
I feel I have made some gains on producing better music this year. I still hear things that are not as perfect as I would like, after the song has been released, but that is part of the creative process.
