After almost 2 years of work, the album is now in its finishing stages.
Only a few more sessions of final tracking before taking it into mixing.
I am so excited to show you the music I’ve poured my soul into making over the last 20 months.
Keep your ears peeled….the other side awaits.
As I sit here writing under a blanket, I can see the first snow storm of the year make it’s way to my window. It is now 2011, and like many I am back in school, reflecting on the past years’ accomplishments, as well as on the goals to set and accomplish for this year, and decade to come.
With a new year comes new band members, and with this I am happy to say that Kira Montfort will be joining us on drums! I am very excited to have her join us, and we will be playing shows very soon, so keep checking back for show dates in AND out of Ottawa!
On January 21′st I will be returning to Montreal for a second round of filming with my cousin Yann. We will be shooting a video for Forgotten, the second single off my debut EP Fragments of Fiction.
I will also be posting cover videos for you all to enjoy, and giving out some free music very soon!
Please leave any comments of ideas for the music video! Any feedback is appreciated, and don’t forget that you can download a free copy of my first single Cold in the freebies section! I will be taking it down in the coming week, so make sure to get it while it’s there!
Music. Lives. Forever.
Snow, snow, and more snow.
It’s been a month since the last post, and I apologize.
Life seems to be rather keen on keeping me busy!
First things first.
Fragments of Fiction will be taken off of itunes/cdbaby and all other media sites. But don’t worry if you haven’t got a copy yet! It will be re-released under an independent label, making it available worldwide! More on that later!
The album is moving significantly well, I finished demoing drums, piano and vocals for ”Paper moon”. This is going to be a good one, I promise!
I will be entering Kensington Sound on May 9th in Toronto with Producer Ben Pelchat. With many musician guest appearances and collaborations, input from hit songwriters an incredibly versatile producer and of course myself, this is sure to be one crazy ride!
I also wanted to mention that Kaleigh Watt, the extremely talented singer which I am working with, recently got chosen for the back up vocals on one of KT Tundstall’s singles ”Glamour Puss” on her remix album! Congrats! I personally cannot wait to see the finished product!
I know that Christmas is coming, and to most, this means gifts!
I will be giving out more free tracks from the EP in the coming weeks, as well as additions to the website and more videos that I’m sure you guys will enjoy. So keep checking back!
And don’t forget to keep spreading the word on Cold’s Music Video!
Music. Lives. Forever.
Tons of great stuff happening, but first I wanted to mention this great movie called ”The Age of Stupid”. It’s the story of what we will become, and where we are going as a species if we continue to destroy our world. Go check it out @ http://www.spannerfilms.net/ which also features other incredibly enlightening movies. I strongly urge you all to check it out!
As I’m already well into loosing my sanity over the writing of this next Record, I must admit it is coming along quite well. I’m well into the third new song, and I think when this is all finally complete, it just might blow your socks off. And by socks I mean shoes included (assuming you are wearing some).
I am also working on a project with a fantastic local singer (originally from Toronto however) Kaleigh Watts. I’m going to be producing her debut EP (due out mid-next year?) and I’m really excited to see what it becomes. We’ll be putting up some demo’s on her (to-be) myspace page when we have some, so keep an eye out!
On a different note.
It is my pleasure to announce a new member of the Alexy Music family! Elizabeth Foster has blessed us with the power of her 5 string violin! She’ll be playing with us in the future, so keep an eye out for show announcements!
Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who watched the music video, and helped spread the word so well as to get 500 plays in less than a week and a half! Keep spreading it, word of mouth is key! Lets get it up to 1000!
(You can see it in the ”media” section!)
More on all of that to come soon, and possibly a big announcement? Only time will tell .
Music Lives Forever.
After exactly a month from being aired, the Daytime videos are finally up! Check them out in the ‘Media’ section of the site! We performed ”Forgotten” and ”Writers’ Block” as well as had an interview with Derick Fage.
Some of you might know this already, but a full length album is in the works! I will be working with Producer Ben Pelchat over the next seven months doing pre-production for the album which is likely to be called ”Paper Moon”. This record will be recorded in Toronto at ‘Kensington Sound”, one of Canada’s oldest studios!
You can check it out @ www.kensingtonsound.ca
Lots more to come on that!
On October 16th-17th I will be in Montreal shooting a music video for ”Cold”! It will be up on here as soon as it is completed, and I can say that I am very excited to get this first video done!
I have also begun to post a ‘Song of the Day’ on twitter! Check back regularly for a new great track to check out every day!
There’s tons of new stuff in the works, sub-publishing deals as well as international showcases, but more to come on that later!
Music Lives Forever.
