Now here’s something bloody awesome. Bill (Icarus Machine bandmate and friend and the music know-it-all) is returning to singing. From time to time I have pushed a tiny bit to see if he wants to add vocals to our songs but it’s been something like squeezing notes out of a rock, mostly silence. But all of a sudden he wants to add lead vocals. So, naturally, I did help with some doubled tracks and backing vocals. I am ridiculously excited and am hoping it’s going to stick. In a couple of days we added the lyrics (Written by Bill with some ideas from me) and all the vocals. It’s currently waiting for collaborators to jump on to replace drums and add bass. Here’s a peak at “Harrow” Enjoy!

So, I’m writing music again. This may seem like a strange thing to say but really, I did stop. I thought I was fine adding words and voice to Icarus Machine songs and various collaborations. But shit, there’s no reason I can’t do both. I love what I do, whether it’s my own solo stuff or someone else’s awesome tune. I have to admit though that putting my own stuff out there again, which I am doing slowly bit by bit, is scarier than it ever was. I have learned perfection on a level that may not be all to my advantage. Imposter syndrome is just the beginning. 🙂 But I am happy to say that more music composed by yours truly will appear here. Starting with something I wrote on my own, an emotional prog/goth-metal tune called “Dissonance” .
