It's almost 2018 and I have about 10 songs either completely done or in some various stage of being in the works. I've decided to forgo the traditional route of putting out a new single and subsequent album, because in the reality of today's landscape and my own musical history I'm not really an albums artist: I'm all about the singles. So I've decided I'm going to put out a monthly EP (extended play to you non-musical types), starting with Vol1 which will be out on the same day (January 2nd, mark your calendars!) of "These Words (Softly Spoken)" - the EPs are called Canals (based on ear canals, since I highly recommend using earbuds or headphones to listen to these songs). Vol1 is all guitar and has some of what I think are my most refreshing and poignant songs in a long time. Since I'm also trying to be budget-friendly with my music these days, I'm making my Canals project a Bandcamp exclusive because they have the best pricing structure for indie artists like myself. So...basically, please pre-order now at https://chriseberlein.bandcamp.com/album/canals-vol-1.
This is the first of a series of musical moments I’m gonna provide anyone interested on the writing and recording process of my new music:
After a few amazing weeks churning out song after song including the new single that is “These Words” that breathed a surprising whole new life into the project and direction of WWBA4 (What Will Be Album 4), I haven’t written anything substantial for almost a week. Before this project, I actually hadn’t written a song in 3 years, so I’m anxious I get some good ideas flowing again. Then again, I can’t rush creativity. Not staying up to 3am today to tinker around, need sleep. Xo C
I'm sexy. I'm cute. I'm popular to boot.
