Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted an original song so I’m really excited to finally share a new one with you: “Awakening”. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I do, I really had a great time putting this together and I’m hoping that it’ll be something you’ll really like listening to. You can download it from my store HERE, or you can also download it in a number of different formats and listen to a preview on Loudr HERE.
I really will like to hear what you guys think of it and whether or not you’re interested in supporting more of my original songs. I’ve explained this in some of my other articles, but the reason that I haven’t released many originals yet is because the cost is really high to produce them especially when adding a professional video (which is really necessary for exposure and getting people to know about it) and the first original I released (Nebulous) got a lot of really nice comments but not a ton of people actually purchased it, so I still haven’t actually made back the costs I put into it. At this point with all of my other cover albums out that people are supporting, I’m more comfortable putting out some originals from time to time even if it is a little bit of a financial risk because I love doing the originals as well and I’ve had a lot of people ask for more. To work around this a little, I plan to run a Kickstarter for an entire original album some time this fall. I think that way it’ll show me if there really is enough interest in my original music to warrant putting together a full album, and if it gets funded then I’ll feel totally comfortable working on it since it will eliminate the financial risk. If there’s not enough interest I’ll just probably release a few singles here and there.
Either way, I’m really excited to share this new song with you and I hope you have fun listening to it. Thank you so much to all my supporters who have helped me get this far, I wouldn’t be here without you! <3
