Please give an example of your music writing process?
Ever heard of the phrase ‘polishing a turd’? That’s it in a nutshell.
Take one turd, squeeze it out, really work it out, then polish. If it doesn’t shine at first get back and give it another rub until it either shines or completely disappears.
What are you working on right now?
I’m workin on getting some new shoes for me 85′ Honda Scooter. That n a couple new toons for the second album.
We’re working toward having the second album out in October this year, so we’ve got plenty to do, it’s coming along well. There’s going to be another single out before then.
With You is the first single from it, we should have anothery out in a month or so.
