It's been a longgg while since I have posted anything about my music! I wanted to take a moment to update everyone on what's been going on!
So... let's start at the very beginning. I want to clear up a very miss-understood rumor floating around. I have been asked, more times than I can count, if I have quit music. The answer is very simply NO! ;) I love music. It has been, and remains, my first love and passion in life and I know for 100% certainty that I want to be a musician. I have completed about 90% of writing and pre-production for my debut album. I still have a long way to go and that takes money and funding that I don't currently have. This is where I'm at. It's life, and it's ok. It will happen. I'm learning patience.
There's another part of this story that I'm very excited to share with you all. As most of you, if not all of you know, starting and growing a business is very difficult. There are many different variables that come up that can change the course we are all on called "life". Mine has been kind of crazy as of late. Not bad, just crazy.
So here's the thing... My plan was to work over holiday to get funds together for the remainder of the album. It didn't happen. I applied, and applied... and applied. Nothing. It wasn't meant to be I guess, cool. Moving on.
I decided to hire myself. :) See, I had this design business that I had started back in college called "Hipster Perspective". I never really promoted it. I did a lot of behind the scenes stuff for other people. Things like album artwork, photography, and wedding decor. Nothing major just little things here and there to keep the creative juices flowing. I have, however, always done design in some fashion or another. I did every bit of promotional material for my debut EP released in 2014. Website, logo, artwork, everything. This was done side by side with my music career. Same as today. The only difference today is that I am now promoting "Hipster Perspective" as it's own separate entity. I am very excited to be doing this full time as a means of support for my other passions, like.........MUSIC!
So what is Hipster Perspective? I have had this question repeatedly come up and I would like to clear up some things! :) I am the Creative Director and Founder of Hipster Perspective.
