Someone advised me that if I was serious about being a writer, I needed to get on Facebook and Twitter, and start a blog. So I did. At first, it was intended to be a blog about writing but I soon realised there were any number of other blogs out there about writing. Wondering how I could put my own slant on it, I decided to start posting some of my original songs. I called the blog “Rant, with Occasional Music” and started posting a song every Monday on what I dubbed “New Music Monday”.
I set up a studio in my house and recorded all of the songs on the album there. “Do You Dream At All?” is entirely self-produced and self-released. The marketing budget was a laptop, a twitter account and a Facebook page. In tandem with these recessionary times, this was DIY music-making.
And my album is now available for the bargain price of $5 on www.cdbaby.com
To give you a taster of the album, this is the video for the title track.
