Group Effort

January 4, 2013

As far as I’m concerned, music is best done in a group.  That’s part of why I’m in a band and not a singer/songwriter or a solo artist.  I like the family.  Yes, we fight.  A lot.  And it’s not easy, but it’s way more fun.

Brian and I started a song back in September and it’s 95% done after tonight’s session with Naomi (vocals) and Alex (keys).  It’s far better than I could have done on my own.

You give a little more to get a lot more when it comes to this.  After I take my ego out of the equation and put the song and the band first, I know that the end product - in this case (It’s not always the case, most of the time it is) - is far better than what I would have done on my own.
