After six months of working on music, I’ve finally come up with Thunder Demos. This is my first musical statement, and I sincerely hope that you all enjoy it. The project was inspired by a particularly emotional departure from the world around me, consisting of people, all shapes and sizes. I’ve written plenty songs about people in my past, and I grew tired of that subject. Since I’ve always had a fascination with weather, I decided to focus my creative intake towards that phenomenon for this first project. I know ‘weather’ implies anything but interesting thought or conversation, but I was hoping to present my connection to it in a way that wasn’t boring. Living in a city that lacks diverse weather, I began to yearn for an afternoon sky that wasn’t so damn blue. So, without further ado, I present: Thunder Demos.
There are five tracks in total, and they are available for free streaming below via SoundCloud. If you want to purchase the mp3s for download, the whole record will be available on CD Baby for $2.95 until 4/10/12. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE ON CD BABY
Making this was an awesome experience, and I hope it’s at least half as awesome to listen to. I want to thank everyone who has ever inspired me, supported me or made me laugh. And a very special thanks to Phil and Erik for helping make this project much better than I ever could have on my own.
