MY FAV BANDS OFFERING FREE DOWNLOADS ONLINE

1. JOE PUG http://www.joepugmusic.com/free/

I would go as far as my generations Dylan…and he can really play! His music gives you the feeling of arrival and comfort but also sort of makes you sad (in a good way) and nostalgic for the intangible. 

 

my favorite song is here ——>  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMVN5rPLCoE

2. K FLAY http://www.kflay.com 

Extremely talented rapper/vocalist/songwriter out of San Francisco. Ive been into K Flay for awhile now. She writes nothing but anthems…big and small…the power to draw you in is strong. Its like she has you by the collar on the verse and then throws you off a roof top when the chorus drops. A lot of her music seems extremely personal and has a die-hard fanbase. If you are a K Flay fan…you are one for life. The nice thing is all her music is free online so you can start at the beginning of her career and see her evolve from album to album.

 

this is her new ANTHUUUUM —-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJ6KqzLwvF4

 

3. BAD BAD NOT GOOD http://badbadnotgood.com

Reminds me of some old music I made with friends…They are bringing some serious attitude to jazz. and people respond. they backed up Frank Ocean at Coachella (and on his album), worked with Tyler The Creator and did a performance for TED. 

 

BBNG with Tyler   ——>   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7PEnj-8NHw

 

4. Nathan Moore http://www.nathanmoore.org/songs.html

One of my favorite songwriters. Have gotten to see him multiple times. He is constantly streaming intimate performances he does wherever people will have him play….for free on ustream…He has collaborated with most notable Marco Benevento and The Slip to form Surprise Me MR. Davis. http://www.surprisememrdavis.com great rock band aswell.

STRESSED, BUSY, AND PRACTICE HABITS

Image

Writing from home this time. Been mostly teaching/mixing/practicing/hanging with family (mike & carla <3).  Ill spare you the worst of it….ok I wont…Ive been stressed and there is no one thing I can pinpoint that is causing it. chalking it up to a bunch of little things.  

here are (some) of those little things

1. the puppy…its really hard to actually get any work done at home when the teething pup needs constant attention. If you ever had the painstaking pleasure of mixing your own music, you know it needs the listeners complete attention…you cant worry about if your dog is eating thumb tacks in the corner of the room (he was). 

2. the clutter – it piles up and Ill need to clean it up to think straight. I cant until its all back to normal. how would you like it if you went to work (your bedroom) and had to stare at dirty clothes/ dishes/ puppy toys while you blasted a click track in your ears for three hours. Sometimes I seriously wonder what Im doing with my life.

 

3. lack of tech savvy skills – Im really bad at working on the computer. doesn’t matter if its a blog, music program, or just keeping my desktop organized Im just bad at it. I can’t remember any key commands, can’t seem to navigate through the finder effectively. its soooo frustrating. 

 

Its about 5pm when Ive experienced all these things and more. I have not eaten, and am just demoralized by how little I was able to accomplish. 

 

So there you go. Im not claiming to have any solutions for these things nor am I complaining…but I know some of you have parallel situations. your not alone in this. Everyone is busy. Or is it that you just feel busy? This article helped me relax alitte bit and prioritze my work. It hasn’t solved the problem but did give me a boost and Im feeling the need to share it. deliberate practice habits will pay off and keep you sane!
