This is Stephen Marsh and he just finished mastering the brand new song “Standing on the Side” that I wrote with my friend Darryl. He’s got golden ears, let me tell you. Marsh gave us back an incredible master of our song, dynamic and full of life. And we recorded and mastered in high resolution 88.2kHz/24bit (which is also how we’ll be releasing the song for the few of you audiophiles out there).
This new song will be released soon (some time in the next week), and it is the first chapter in a new musical project that Darryl and I are building.
Darryl and I started writing music together when I was 15 years old (so 17 years ago!). We recorded tons of ideas on a little cassette 4-track but never laid down anything releasable over the years - they were always just demos and ideas.
Here’s me and Darryl now:
This will be the very first song of ours that we’ve released, 17 years after forming our little musical duo! Truly a momentous occasion for us.
But as I mentioned, it’s only the first chapter.
Darryl and I were always storytellers with our music. Constructing huge concept albums and story arcs and musicals. We planned stage productions of our work, and detailed video releases… novelizations… all kinds of art in addition to just the music.
So we’re starting a new story that will be continued in future releases. This first chapter is called “Standing on the Side”. And I can’t wait to share it with you all very soon. :)
