The recording studio went great! We talked for ages and he listened to my voice, which he liked, (a lot, apparently).
He let me see the magic of recording studios by playing me a 'Before and after' of a song. It was awful to begin with, but then he worked his magic and then the song was great. This wasn't me singing by the way. It was someone else's song. Did you know that in a studio, all you have to do is sing a song, and then by a flick of a button, this machine adds male/female harmonies?! How cool is that?! It sounded just like a group of people had recorded with us. I was amazed, but insisted that I wanna do my own harmonies..lol!
He was going to write a song for me to record as my main song, but after he heard my own song, he became dedicated to getting a full band together, re-recording the backing track with his musician friends and letting me use my OWN song as my main sound 'cos he loved it. How cool is that?!
Now I just need to figure out a name for the album. I'm thinking something strange maybe...strange but down to earth?
I never expected that I'd be singing my own song on my own album. He believes that I'll do well if I send the CD off to various labels, so that's what I'm aiming for. Recording doesn't start until mid September so I'll keep you posted. Woo, I'm so excited!
Last night, like an idiot, I deleted EVERY text message from my phone. I'd been saving some of those messages since 2001!!!
I've lost numbers too, not to mention all the texts I'd saved from my December auditions last year, plus tons more. Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!
The price you pay for being sentimental!! lol!
I just wanna give a wave to Donna's Auntie, who I know reads my journal. Thank you hun, and I hope all's going well for you! *hugs*
Hope you're all ok
