I need to start really putting more effort into writing songs, and into my song writing in general. I have some ideas percolating. Once all my current orders are out tomorrow, i am going to spend at least an hour a day playing and writing. I need to get these songs out of my head and become a better writer, lyically and musically. Its not enough to make fun, poppy horror punk songs.
I love the scene and the genre but i can only spend so much of my life writing the same songs as my peers, and i have to come to terms with the idea that i really cant do much to set myself apart in this genre. Dont get me wrong, ill still be playing horror rock. But i want to play MORE than that. i want to present a cohesive vision, with a theatrical element that can eschew the traditional blood and grease paint for something more atmospheric while still being dark and allowing for a dynamic performance. i want to create songs with a more expressive, layered sound, and with lyrics that do more than tell a horror story. Lyrics with shades of meaning, depth of story and character, that tell dark and macabre visions of real life and my own struggles with my psyche. I want to open myself up to my audience through my lyrics, and wrire songs that resonate with the listener long after theyve listened to them.
I need to grow and progress as a musician and artist. I want my friends and peers in this scene to be as eager and excited about my work and my new songs as i am about theirs and as they are about artists like Wind Hawk and Argyle Goolsby and Darrow Chemical Company. I want not only relevance to our scene, but relevance to a bigger audience.
Im 26 years old, and been going through the motions for a while now. Its time to rededicate myself to my art instead of treading water and pretending to have passion that a lot of days isnt there. I dont know what steps Ill have to take to make this happen, but I know that making a concentrated effort to write, and grow, is a good start. I need to put in as much as I have gotten from my music. I hope, whatever changes this may bring, my friends and fans will stick around to see the destination.

WaterBOB 100gal bathtub water jug.
In an emergency with water shortages people are told to fill their bathtubs to have water on hand. but most bathtubs are not clean in an emergency, and the water will evaporate when left open to the air over time.
WaterBOB solves those problems! Holds 100gal of water, fits any bathtub, and has a hand pump to pump out water as you need without wasting any. Keeps the water clean and fresh, FDA approved material and BPA free. Costs less than 20$ and available on amazon.
