Have fun, Franz.

 

Hello to the SoloDallas.net community!

My name is Chris Morash (a.k.a musicman2242 here). This is my first post as a contributor to the site and I would like to thank Solo Dallas and banane for helping me out ๐Ÿ™‚

Like the title suggests, I’m writing this to tell everyone about my new album “Listen To The Sound”.

So, how ’bout I get started?

Over the last year I’ve been writing and recording my original music. I never intended for it to become a “release” nor did I plan to try and make something of it. I just wanted to have my songs recorded for myself to listen to basically because I really enjoy the music I write(not intended to sound like I’m “tooting my own horn”).

After getting two songs recorded, I figured, “Hey, why not make an album?”. So I did! ๐Ÿ™‚ If I had to categorize my album I’d say it falls somewhere in the Pop/Rock category. Even though I LOVE hard rock and old school Metal like AC/DC, Rhino Bucket, Jackyl, Dio and Iron Maiden I write completely different.

So on to the nuts and bolts:

I recorded the entire thing from home using the following

Boss BR-600 Multi-Track Digital Recorder

Various guitars

A drum program called Acoustica Beat Craft

and finally to mix everything I used Acoustica mp3 Audio Mixer and Audacity.

Everything you hear in each song is all done by me. Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Drums, Recording, Mixing, Mastering, etc.

 

The goal of this is to get my music out there. These songs are the best I’ve written, I am completely confident that I can make something of this if I try hard enough and writing this article is one step (of many) that I’ve been able to take.

Sooner than later my songs are going to have my songs on various websites like iTunes & Amazon mp3 among others. I am currently selling my album at $7.00 CDN per copy in order to raise enough funds to have my songs put on the web. If anyone is interested email me @ musicman2242@gmail.com for more info.

I have said it before and I know I will always say it.. I am VERY proud to be a part of the SoloDallas.net community and I am proud to be able to share with you, something that is so very much a part of me. Everything I write, I feel or have experienced at some point in my life so all of these songs are in a way very personal. Just pure emotion, weather it’s happy, sad, angry, lost, loved, etc

 

I hope you all take the time to check out some of my tunes and I hope you all LOVE it! Feel free to leave comments/feedback and to contact me if you would like to get a copy.

Thank You,

Chris

    I very much like your sound, its all very professional. Im listening to Devil Angel off your youtube right now, and the vocals are pretty striking ๐Ÿ˜€

    If you ever need any graphics or an album cover, I’d be glad to help out! (Only if you need it, of course)

    May I ask where youre from?

      Thanks headwhop26!
      I’m from Nova Scotia, Canada. I tried to get the most “professional” sound I could out of the gear I have. Really I don’t own anything high end.. Most of the songs were recorded with 2 heavily heavily modified Squire Strat’s and an Epiphone Les Paul. But, it’s all in the ear I guess..
      (BTW Devil Angel was recorded with the highest end guitar of all on the album.. a beat to pieces 10yr old black Gibson SG Special with a Dimebucker in the bridge)

          Would you be able/willing to do a back cover with the track list to go along with the front cover? If so, I’ll email you the Track list.

    Emotions are very clearly heard in every song. At least I think i hear them.
    Really well done.
    You need to gather a band at some point =)
