As we start to gear up for the year ahead, pull together our evolving creative plans and dreams, and sort out our budget -- we realize we have much to be grateful for in 2012, including:
- A successful crowdfunding campaign
- Our first 4-song EP, "Send Me A Sign"!
- A great experience at the West Coast Songwriters Conference
- Forwards of our music to music libraries and film/tv opportunties
- Airplay and interviews on several radio shows
- 6,000 YouTube views on our newest video for “If You Want (the buh bah song)"
And all of these goals were met while maintaining a full-time job (Kevin), several part-time jobs (Deanna), and keeping two awesome kids enriched and entertained. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible.
In 2013, we want to contribute back to the community with a weekly blog. Over the past few years, we've come across numerous tools that have helped enhance our creativity and streamline our creative processes in music, writing and more. Cool apps, tools, books, podcasts, creative techniques... We've started making lists of these and we're excited to share them with you, as well as invite you to participate in some of the creative challenges we've found fun, helpful, inspiring, maddeningly growthful, or sometimes all of the above!
We’re also looking forward to working on our next 4-song EP, with plans to record in mid-Summer. We’ll keep you posted as we sort through our song catalog and figure out which four are up next, and then we'll definitely be asking you help to get the word out!
Let's make 2013 a year of exchanging ideas, creating art, and having a blast doing it!
What are you creative plans and strategies for the upcoming year? Let us know in the comments!
