Latest Discovery: A Cure For Depression
...well almost! Here is my take on being Blue and Under The Weather. We all get down from time to time and I feel blessed that I can channel my feelings and thoughts into my songwriting and music. This is my latest single titled Blue (Under The Weather) soon to be released on an upcoming album.
For this song, I created a lyric video using some old photographs I found in a box lying dormant in the garage. The exotic cover photo is from a talent competition I participated in when I was nine years old. It was held on a P&O ship, The Canberra, as I travelled with my family to the US from Australia. Another photo in the video is taken at a Tae Kwon Do tournament I competed in when I was in my early twenties. I was up against a male opponent, who was heavier and who had many more years of Karate experience behind him...needless to say, I lost, but that's life! I was proud of myself for giving him a run for his money as the ferocious wildebeest in me took over!
When I did the audio mix down and post production for the song, I used an amazing newly developed real-time EQ plugin called Gullfoss by Soundtheory. I highly recommend you check it out if you are into the technical side of recording your own songs. It helped iron out some continuity issues for me in the vocals.
