Taking you through the making of Gravity Kills new music in 2012.

Post with 4 notes

One of those nights…

Last night I started and idea that I had been chewing on for about a week. Tonight it really took shape. The working title of the song is called “Again.” I gathered the lyrical idea from an experience that I recently had and really felt like it would be great to “do it all again.” Things really seemed to fall into place all night. I went from one idea to the next and my Logic chops are really sharpening again. It felt good to not hesitate as I moved through the virtual environment. 

I must tell that the inspiration to work came from a very old friend by the name of Colin Boyd. He is a singer/songwriter that I knew when I lived in Dallas and I haven’t spoken to him since before Gravity Kills formed in 1994. He reached out to talk about recording and I was more than enthused that he called. I really respect this guy because I have been watching his career from afar and I actually played some keys on a record he did in the early 90’s. Thanks Colin for keeping the fire lit.

I have bounced the track to mp3 so I can take a few more listens tonight. I will lay down the scratch guitars and a scratch vocal tomorrow and so I can upload the track to the cloud for Doug to pull down to Shock City.  I hope when I have my first listen tomorrow that I will be as excited as I am now.

Another strange thing happened. When I bounced the track down to mp3, I noticed it was 4 minutes and 6 seconds long. Another good friend, Clint Ingram is spiritually and universally tied to the time 4:06 so I just got off the phone with him. I suppose we are all connected by something.
