Sorry for ignoring you. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. But I started this mainly as a blog about my songwriting, and I haven’t been doing much of that. I recorded a record, “Me”, in the Spring and Summer of 2009 and released it in the Fall. Then I formed a band around December 2009, and focused on gigs with the band in the Spring of 2010. Then in the summer and fall of 2010, I’ve been recording another record, a full-length, professionally produced record. And working a full time day job all along also. More than full time; I’m forced to work a lot of overtime on this job, no way out of it. So not much time for songwriting.
But I came back to the blog today, and read the last post, about getting better. That was confirmed in the current recording project. The producer, John McVey, is using professional musicians, and he himself is a very good guitar player and singer. And he’s been kicking my ass to make me a better singer and guitar player. It’s been a little humbling, but good for me. If you want to read more about this recording project, go to my website, www.robroper.com.
But I’ve been itching to get back to songwriting. I’ve got a ton of musical and lyrical ideas. So once I get this record done, and do a little promotion for it, I hope to take 2-3 months off and write some new songs.
