So here I am at 5 o'clock, watching the last few minutes of Dr Phil, minutes ago escaping a 3 hour long addiction to Law and Order. My head is freshly shaved, I just did some pull-ups for the first time in over a month (god I miss being buff!). I'm feeling pretty good.
Last night I had practice #2 in hopefully a long string of rehearsals and gigs with a drummer named Kevin. We got together through a mutual friend and so far it seems like we're going to be starting my next project together. Since it seems like Project PS is no more (at least for the time being), I'm going to start up my own solo project. Of course it'll be pretty much exactly the same thing as project ps was - all my own original songs, spiced up a little for/by the other band members, but I have a really good feeling about it. Kevin is one of the best drummers I've ever worked with, and really has his shit together. He also seems really into the project and has a mind for success. As soon as I can find a bassist to fill in the empty bottom end of our act, we plan on gigging again. That'll be so much fun.
In somewhat related news, Vadim's remix of "Ugly" has been signed by a label called, "Neuroscience Recordings" in the UK, and should be appearing in the not-so-distant future. They wanted to sign both the remix and my original track, but because of some contractual issues with my original track, we decided to take a different approach. Since his remix is so unique that it pretty much qualifies as an original track, thats what hes calling it. I'm instead granting him the right to use the vocals I recorded for him (the same lyrics/melody that I use in my original version) for his mix, and I myself am retaining all rights to my original tracks. I'm gonna try and get a few copies of the vinyl (for free if possible, hahaha) to show off to my friends and family here... but isn't it cool to think that I might possibly be spun at some rave or club in the UK or even here in the US? You can visit vadim's website <a href="http://www.MidavMusic.com" target="_blank">here</a>.
Anyhow thats pretty much it for now. I just wanted to touch base with you all and let you in on a little but of whats happening right now. Keep in touch!
