Today I have successfully completed a goal I have had since I was 12 years old. My band, The Northmen, have released there first EP. I have played in a number of bands over the years as a hobby but for whatever reason never had the chance to record anything. Even though I have heard the songs numerous times it felt special putting it on the band camp website for the public today. Music has always been a huge part of my life and I am very thankful that I finally achieved one of my long term goals. Thanks to The Northmen for making it happen!
This leads into the idea of Hobby’s. I think it is paramount that people take interest in a number of different activities through out there life. Yes I am a photographer, but what makes my images unique isn’t that I only focus on photography. I find lately that I engage in anything but photography for inspiration. There are a number of amazing people out there in all fields and you can learn something from them all. Don’t box yourself in.
Continuing with music, for those who are interested, I highly recommend these Chilly Gonzalez videos that break down the theory of contemporary pop songs. They’re Awesome!
I just can’t get enough of this guys talent and ability to make music theory really interesting.
