I’m having one of those awesome weeks where stuff is starting to come together, and I don’t think I’ve done a straight up music update in a while, so here we go!
I’ve been working on a few collabs the past few months, and I got to hear the one I was most looking forward to hearing a few hours ago. It’s from a Final Fantasy game, and is going to be on a Final Fantasy album for next year, and ugh I am just so excited to be able to hear it completed but now I’m like aruuuug I can’t share it with you guys until the album is released and it’s killing me. I will say, everyone involved put in their A game, the track is so amazing. It’s my favorite track from that particular Final Fantasy, and it’s a very different take on the original track.
It’s doubly exciting, because I provided both vocals, and lyrics for it! I told the person mixing it that they could use takes with lyrics or with just straight up ooos for the melody, so I was super excite to hear the lyrical takes on the tracks. I wrote a lot more verses than were used in this version of the track, so I may do another version on my YouTube Channel with all four verses I did for this certain track.
I’m also working on a duet with someone that’s coming out great so far! I haven’t done my parts, but their parts sound really good and I’m excited to get to work on that once I learn the song. I also finally got a few instruments recently! I picked up some shakers and a really nice tambourine, and I know for sure I’ll be getting um, something pretty musical for Christmas I can’t wait to start learning how to play. I also picked up a recorder, so once I learn how to play that, it’s going to be sooo much fun making covers. But I’m the most excited to start learning to play my Christmas gift 😄
My main focus for next year and the end of this year, is going to be music. I got side track this year by a lot of side projects, and silly insecurities, so I’m going to make it a point to not have that be the case for next year. I’m so happy that I’ve decided to tackle some things I wouldn’t normally do (like doing all of these collaborations, for one) and I feel like my music is going in a great direction. Here’s hoping it stays that way!
