Hi Folks. Steve Deasy here again – working on my next album. I thought it might be interesting to write weekly essays and post audio files as I work on my 3rd album. Each week I will write about whatever is in my head about what the song is about, why I wrote it, and what influenced it musically. Although admittedly this will give way more insight into how my mind works than any sane living person ought to know, it might be interesting. So check back at least once per week and read and listen.
Also, each time a song has more done to it, i.e. overdubs, additional harmonies, et cetera, I will always keep the latest out there for listening and free download for all you brave souls that are willing to follow this blog and watch the CD progress. It will be your reward. Put it in your iPods and mp3 players. Burn them to CD. I don’t care.
Some people wonder why I would put stuff out there for free download. Well, unless you follow this blog, you probably don’t know about it, and I think the idea of bootleg versions of Steve Deasy music running around is kind of cool. When I release the CD officially, there will be links to listen to them, but the old rough stuff will be gone.
Oh I almost forgot, comment people! I want to know you and your thoughts. The first time you comment, it will not immediately post until a moderator sees it. However, subsequent posts will go through without this step. We don’t want a lot of spam comments, and if they get through they may be deleted if we do not know you. This blog is for Steve Deasy and his friends – it is not the place to promote your next project or website or CD.
I want to get of the grid – write and perform music full time. Please follow my blog. Demand me to play in your area at eventful.com ( I really will pay attention). Add me on twitter and Facebook. My posts will also go to MySpace, but as Dustin Hoffman in the movie “Rain Man” would say, “MySpace sucks worse than K Mart.” Add me as a friend, you cannot ‘become a fan’ – don’t want it that way. We are equals – I won’t be your fan, and I don’t want you to be mine.
There is a scene in the movie “Pecker” in which Christina Ricci’s character says to Pecker, whose photography is becoming popular, “Don’t become an asshole, Pecker…DO NOT become an asshole.” If I start to get popular, I will try not to become an asshole.
So comment on my site! Come to my gigs and introduce yourself.
