Elsie, Stacy, Darren and I all did a little Skype chat last night about a game plan for releasing our album. We also started talking about how this project began. It appears that this all began on January 5th of 2010; that was the first night I started working on our first song. Oddly enough, that song will now be the opening track to the album. It feels like we've been working on this album for a decade, so I was surprised to see that it hadn't quite been two years yet.
While searching for our early emails to eachother, I found an email I sent to Darren about six months before we started working together. I was severely depressed about where my career was going, and was looking for an encouraging word. I talked in depth about what I wanted to do with my life/music, but didn't know how to get there. I won't go into detail here, but I will say that this email was a great reminder of how many of my goals and dreams have come true since then. The resume that I've built up, is almost exactly the resume I dreamed of having just two and a half years ago. I'm feeling very thankful today. Thanks for reading.
