I’ve been spending a lot of my free time lately trying to develop a process. I don’t use social media much in my personal life, but it’s essentially necessary for gaining any kind of relevancy this day and age. Which I don’t particularly mind.
I have a pretty good idea of how I’m going to approach things, but now it’s a matter of following through. I learn a lot through experience. So I’ll just need to start doing it and figure it out as I go. I’m wearing a lot of hats right now. I’m trying not to spread myself thin. All of the necessary upkeep gets in the way of my creative process, so I need to find a balance.
Spent the past few months dealing with life shit and getting back on my feet. So far so good. Made a new friend, I’m teaching him to play drums. In time he will be joining me on my creative ventures. I’d gladly drag everyone I know into the wonderful world of art, but it’s not for everyone. Put up my first video! Vocals are a bit weak, but I’m pretty happy with how the instrumentation turned out. Have the audio work done for the second one, but I’m focused on building some assets for the videos and whatnot this week, so delaying the release a little bit for that.
As of right now I am trying to start building a community. I’m not exactly sure what that even entails at this point. But I’ll just keep talking and hopefully at some point people will start to listen. I really enjoy writing either way. So it’s not much of a concern. Once I released Permanent Press I made my next goal to develop a presence on social media and start networking over the course of the next few years.
Musically I’m always coming up with stuff. I’ll probably start making some smaller videos with some of them. But a lot have been piling up for ideas on my next album. I’m thinking I’ll call it Hidden Sunrise. I like the ring of that. It should be a full length record. I would also like to find myself some other band members so I can tour with my music.
I’m also in the process of figuring out the overall image or “brand” if you will for my musical venture. I’ve got some thoughts in mind for a new website header and should carry over a lot of that to the social media realm as well. I plan on getting a YouTube channel up at some point that I’ll use for video blogs, behind the scenes, and just general nonsense probably, knowing me.
Beyond that, I’ve been tossing around the idea of starting a live music stream for a while now. I really think it would be a great way to collaborate with other musicians both locally and abroad. But at this point it’s one thing at a time. I’m still working a day job to pay my bills at this point. Should probably set up a Patreon at some point too…
I’ve got all sorts of ideas. But at this point I’m just taking it one day at a time. There’s so much work to do. But I’m pretty happy to do it.
These are the three words I use to describe myself. My name is Landon and I’ve been making music for as long as I can remember. It comes naturally to me. I am always growing as an artist. There’s certainly a lot to learn, but I love it. So the work is always worth it. I am full of ideas and can’t wait to explore them.
I’ve lived in Michigan for a few years now. I grew up in Texas, lived in Oklahoma for a while. Though I have great friends in both of those places, I’ve always felt a bit odd for the culture there. Then again, I basically live on the internet anyways. Just now getting into social media, but I’ve been lurking since the early days of 4chan. End result, I’m kind of eccentric, but surprisingly social for someone who grew up online.
Free-spirited and adventurous. Typically more than people are ready for. Wisdom and Charisma haven’t failed me yet. I’m what you’d call a Protagonist. Definitely the chillest person I know. I care about those I keep close and live to share my experience with the world. Most importantly, I love to have fun. Life should be lived smiling as much as you can.
Been playing guitar for over a decade now. But at this point I dabble with just about any instrument I can get my hands on. Been building my mixing skills and working on my voice over the course of this last year. Grew up around a lot of 80’s music, pop and metal alike. I could go on forever about bands that have inspired me or what I’m listening to now. My tastes are pretty eclectic, but I always come back to pop-punk, post-hardcore, and prog. Then again, I’ll get on random coffeehouse or techno kicks. I’ve got a soft spot for Taylor Swift’s newer stuff too. The production is seriously on point. I also enjoy ambient and post-rock.
That’s about all I can come up with right now. Feel free to ask questions. I’m always open to conversation.
