Here we are in June and I’ve missed the deadline that I set for myself. I have gotten almost all of the bass guitars recorded and I’ve started recording the vocals, but nothing is ready to mix just yet. So unfortunately, I’ve got nothing new for you to listen to.
Time to get my single featuring the songs “Voulez-Vous” and “She’s Not There” is running out. Because of the way that the licensing works for these songs, they will only be available for a couple of more months. If you haven’t gotten your copies yet, you’ve got a little more time, but not much. Get them from Amazon, CD Baby, Google Play and iTunes.
Well, what started off as an attempt to write and record a couple of new Huetensil songs has grown considerably. It looks like I may have an album on my hands! (I’m pretty excited.) I started recording about a month ago. Most of the guitars are done as well as the programming for the drums. I’m currently trying to learn to play bass guitar for these recordings, but it’s slow going. Still, I hope to have something for you to listen to by June or July. Maybe sooner.
Back in November of last year, my version of “She’s Not There” charted at 438 on MediaBase’s Active Rock Chart for one day. Queensryche’s “Redemption” was only at 501. MediaBase’s charts are published in USA Today as well as other places. Usually charts are published weekly and only the top 100 (or 40) are listed. I wasn’t on the published chart because I was too far down the list and only managed to stay on it for one day. Still, it’s kind of neat that I managed to get on there at all.
Those of you who are subscribed to my newsletter already knew about that. What you didn’t know is that it happened again! On February 4, 2014 my recording of “She’s Not There” was ranked at 594. The Foo Fighters “Arlandria” was ranked at 603 on the same chart. Woot!
My recording of “Voulez-Vous” charted in the Top 10 of WONY’s Metal Chart for 5 weeks! It climbed to position 6 before falling off of the chart. WONY 90.9 FM is in Oneonta, New York.
Thanks for listening,
