So I thought I'd let you all know that regardless of whether I win The Red Bull Sound Vault Competition or not (still please vote here) it is my plan to get my latest song "Should've Said No" professionally recorded. I also want to make an accompanying music video for when I release it as a single.
I've been trying to decide the best way to move forward with this. First off I will beg my brother to record the demo as it would take him probably half a day at the most to sort it (pro) where I would spend a week just trying to make everything works properly (amateur hour).
I need to make a basic demo (acoustic guitar & vocals) as a starting point to show other musicians I want to work on the song with me. Then I need to put in a whole lot of effort into a fuller demo (drums, bass, electric guitar, cow bell, harmonies) and then send it away to see if we can get some NZ on Air funding to make the single & music video.
This is the first time that I'm not attempting to make an entire album in one go. It's kind of strange! I will need to decide where to record & who to record with. Of course I'd love to work with Greg Haver & Clint Murphy again but I don't think I can raise the funds to travel all the way to the UK again. hmmm.
I was thinking that if (for some reason) NZ On Air don't see the potential in this song I would start a fundraising campaign for it. Good idea???
If you've got an opinion on the matter - which I'm sure you have if you've read to this point - please drop me a line.
Here's the song "Should've Said No" that I'd like to get recorded!
