An ALbum of Albums
Hi there and welcome to my little info section on the albums I have put out so far. Scroll down to find the albums. You know when I started this little music adventure I lived in my little tradies van. Being such a new fish in the music industry I didn't have any albums to sell to folks at my gigs. I priced up what it would cost to record and develop just one album and I simply couldn't afford the money to do it but I did have some time I could afford. So with less than it would cost to get one album produced I managed to buy an old bus and build a studio in it. It served as my newer, bigger, flasher home plus a place to record music and make it sound good enough. The Silhouettes of Song series or SOS series is a record of my progression from being a complete novice to something more and 6-7 albums later that is precisely what I have achieved. Something more... Something much more... It's not a million dollar studio quality and I'm not a paid professional songwriter but it's all good and I'm sure you will enjoy listening to the series and appreciating the progress in performance and technical quality that has motivated me to come "out of the shadows" as a Piano-Man
Silhouettes of Song S.O.S Vol 1 2016
Silhouettes of Song II SOS 2 2017
Silhouettes of Song III SOS 3 2017
Silhouettes of Song IV SOS 4 2018 (Bluesish)
Silhouettes of Song V SOS 5 2018 (COuntry-ish)
Silhouettes of Song VI SOS 6 2018 (Love and War) ish :D
Silhouettes of Song VII SOS 7 2018 (Murry Rhodes - the SOS series - Originals)
Silhouettes of Song 3 - 7 and Beyond :)
As I progressed in songwriting and technical production skills so too did the quality of what I was producing.
Now 99 songs in total and over 8 hours of playback listening I was able to package albums up as USB's and many a happy fan have commented later that the USB collection has become a permanent driving companion. YAY.. I was doing something right. :D ..
Crossing T's and dotting i's , paying royalties for covered songs and all the administrative aspects of cover's. It was coming time to concentrate on writing my own songs find a way I could come out of the shadows and into a bigger market as my own kind of artist. Indeed the next album to come is my first kind of original album as a developed albeit still a diamond in the rough kind of self taught Piano Man.
Out of the shadows 2018
Almost 2 years from releasing SOS 1 and exploring different sounds and ideas for songs I have reached the point of coming out of the shadows. True to my story telling nature many of the songs are soft laments of love, laughs, learning, life, sorrow and pride plus a few upbeat numbers to lift the spirit of the album up a little. But a nice listening album with a few heart felt observations of life and some really nice environments like sitting around a fire watching the flames dance or just sitting with a bottle of red and a little plate of cheeses. :D I'm quite proud of this little album, the songs have touched a lot of folks already and I'm sure they will touch you too.. :D
