Where I’m At

I’ve been putting together the business end of the…business. It’s been a good eye-opener and I’m realizing the amount of work that needs to be done that has absolutely nothing to do with performing but totally makes it possible to get the opportunities to do it. I’m deciding whether or not to use Indie Band Manager or Bento.  Bento looks like it can do a lot of what I want and in a visually interesting/pleasing way. However, the time it’ll take me to figure it out seems a little prohibitive, especially when I look at Indie Band Manager which isn’t as attractive visually but is set up to do exactly what I need it to AND has a lot of built in prompts (what to do next) and reminders. Right now I’d bet that I’ll go with Indie Band Manager.

I’m also looking for material. In particular, as much up-tempo blues as I can find. The fun part of the this process is getting to listen to so much music. Programs like Pandora make it easy to listen to a genre of music or similar artists. I may be late to the party but I’ve most recently found

Katie Webster.  I know, I know…where have I been =p  I may be late to class, but I am gettin’ schooled!

On the VoiceOver front I finally got my MXL Mic and PortaBooth. I’ve been in touch with Edge Studios and plan on consulting with them, taking 2 private lessons and then recording a narration and commercial demo.  In case your wondering, I have had voice over training before. I’m reviewing those sessions and practicing as well. As I collect material to possibly use for the demos, I’ve got several resources to send my readings to and get feedback.  The ‘who-wudda-thunk-it’ news here…I’ve never enjoyed listening to commercials, until now!
