11 Feb Costa Rica, Transformation & My New Album
Costa Rica this year was an incredible experience for me. I had the best time hanging out with all of you. I’m consistently amazed at the brilliance of this community and how much people are willing to take care of one another.
One of the things I do is produce music and have recently released an album with one of my clients that I would love to share with you. We’d been working on the project for about a year prior to it’s release in December and it’s something I’m very proud of. The album is primarily Hip Hop, although I believe it has a little something for everyone, even if you’re not a fan of the genre.
Eight of the eleven songs feature original music that was composed by me. I also did the mixing for every song which, for those of you who don’t know, involves adjusting the elements of each song in order to get the sound my client and I are after. My client, John E. Griffith, provides the majority of the vocals. We also hired some local singers from New Jersey for some of the songs.
If you’d like to check it out, the album costs $10 and is available for download on iTunes.
If you don’t use iTunes and would prefer to download the MP3 files directly, you can do so at johnegriffith.com.
Transformation plays a big part in my life nowadays. Learning about true listening and the cost of being right in particular has transformed the way I work. I’m able to listen to my clients, anticipate their needs and establish a rhythm throughout recording sessions with ease. When I’m creating a song, I’m able to really listen to each instrument and sound and use that information to determine what else the track needs. Thank you Ariel and Shya for offering all that you do and for creating this community!
I hope you all check out the album! If you enjoy it, feel free to leave a review on iTunes! Looking forward to hearing from you and maybe seeing some of you in New York for a Monday Night Alive or weekend workshop with the Kanes.
