Hello everyone. It's been a bit since I posted anything regarding Lights of Marfa. We have been keeping our heads down and trying to write the best music we can. We have 6 songs mostly completed and several others in various states of completion. We also have a pile of ideas to sift through as well.
Tommy is getting ready to leave, for a week, on a backpacking expedition while the rest of us will continue to hone these 6 songs into their final versions. When he gets back we will step it up, knock out those 6, and get the next bunch started.
I have to say this process has been really gratifying and reassuring. Most of these songs were ideas I had brought to my previous band and, for whatever reasons, they were pushed aside. In my mind, I knew they had potential. I am not a prolific writer but I have written songs (decent ones if I must say so myself) in other bands before so I know I can write. But 3 years of having your ideas turned away can ruin your self confidence a little. Thank you to Tommy, Marcus, Dave for helping me bring them to life.
We are pretty certain we know which song we will record and release first. We have it narrowed down to a few producers that we’d like to work with and we hope to have it in your earholes by the end of April/ beginning of May. Keep your eyes peeled because there may even be a little video to go along with the song. Maybe even some new band photos as well.
Everything has taken a little longer than I would have hoped. Unfortunately we are not rockstars. We have to work to pay the bills which sometimes can make it tough to accomplish things as quickly as we'd like. On top of that we want to make sure everything is right before we come out half-cocked. Please stay tuned and subscribe to our YouTube page HERE.
See ya soon,
