Backing the Music
So, last week, a client came in who presented a song to me, and we proceeded to record it. It quickly became a favorite of mine, and I've since decided to produce it up beyond what it was originally, with the permission of the owner, of course. The song is an acoustic version of Yellowcard's "Ocean Avenue", and I really, really like it. It's always good when someone comes in with a project I can really sink my teeth into. Around here, music is king. If it's good, it'll likely go beyond what the musician originally thought it could be, and that's the way it should be, in my opinion. All with the blessing of its creator, of course.
I've just found that when I allow other musicians to infuse their creativity into a project of mine, it usually can come out being not only different, but much, much better.
Just some thoughts for this beautiful Sunday night.
