just getting back to normal after so many personal events kind of scarred me, not the best time to make a record, but I wanted to be Completely vulnerable. Actually, I have no idea how it's going to be received or how it sounds. I just did the best I could Other than that I take it as a learning experience which helped expand my knowledge of acoustic recording, audio processing and some other whole new skill sets.
Plus, met some key people in my search for better recording components and learned a ton about noise reduction. (Intermittent noise was a big issue in making this record and in some cases ruined some great recordings.)
In the future, I'm going to spend more time developing my technical skills as a pianist and a recordist and not relying so much on my personality because it just feels more authentic as an artist.
Wanted to record under better circumstances but as a businessman and a father its necessary to put some meat on the table.
So far, on sale in Japan and direct for me.
Will decide about a Worldwide release in a few days, but for now this will be only physical CD sales. No downloads.
