Crazy Days 

Just a very quick message to say there is a new song on Spotify and all other platforms. I felt it was my duty as a songwriter to document my days in lockdown, so I wrote this song 'Crazy Days', a sketch of what I was seeing and feeling.

New Music - 'Cracks (full band mix)' 

I hope this message finds you well, safe and secure during the ongoing pandemic. New music is coming fast with new songs published every other week. This weeks release is called "Cracks (full band mix)" find it here.

This is actually a re-working of a previous song. I've had some fun with it and added guitars and drums and stuff, the original version was a more minimal modern production, take a listen to both and let me know which you prefer (original version here).

Listening back to both versions now, I think I probably prefer the original, ha!!! See what you think?

Please consider following me on SPOTIFY . This is the single most important thing you can do to support me. Spotify is where all the action is happening right now and the more followers an artist has the more their music gets picked up and pushed to the top of the stack. A massive thanks if you have already followed me, but please, if you haven't, click the follow button HERE. Thank you.

How to perfect a demo 

I wanted to pass something on to you that I found an inspiration and I hope you will too.

So I stumbled upon a video of Michael Jackson recording for the demo of "beat it" (it looks like it was published on the "this is it" CD).Now I'm not a great fan of Michael Jackson personally but there is no denying that he was amazing at what he did.

Watch it here

I know most of you reading this will be musicians and songwriters in your own right, so watch the video in awe.

The timing and harmonies are incredible and the song is documented perfectly. I think this maybe the perfect way to perfect our songs prior to recording them. The vocal is the key element in every song and if you get the timing and phrasing spot on with some killer harmonies prior to recording the full song it's bound to make for a much better result. Timing problems are one of the key differences between pro and amateur results. So I'm off to do some acapella demos for the next album!

Talking of albums; just a quick cheap plug. All the lyrics to the new album "Humans" are now live on willecho.com/lyrics  please go check them out. There is also an opportunity to buy the physical CD 2 months before the official release, go here to find out how.

And finally, did you hear the "Humans" radio edit on spotify?

Look out for another new song next week.
