Album teaser for my debut, "Zero Mantra" out January!

http://youtu.be/9Ik6xByHazo

This has been a LONG time coming. The oldest song on this dates back to 2000, I finished writing and began tracking in 2010, and life got in the way for a while after that but I finally wrapped up the guitars in August of 2012, then spent the next year tweaking the drum programming and mixing. The last year or so of delay was me just dragging my feet, but finally I got all the content off to my graphic design friend in late November and put the order in for the CDs last week. For a while there, the joke over at sevenstring.org and later metalguitarist.org was which would come out first, this or "Chinese Democracy." I, um, lost.

I should have the album in hand by mid-January, and it'll be available on CD Baby and iTunes not long after that - if this sounds at all intriguing, and bluesy, proggy shred in the style of Andy Timmons and Joe Satriani is your thing, go check it out!

I thought I would be at least 40 by the time it came out.

To put things in perspective, I first heard of your album launching when I joined SSO when I was ~13/14 and now I'm 22 in 6 months

I thought I had been waiting a long time... and I only heard about it earlier this year. Good things take time, right? Looking forward to the release!

Re: Album teaser for my debut, "Zero Mantra" out January!

Took a listen, I definitely want a physical copy!!!!! I Cant wait!!!!!!!

I absolutely love hearing independents debut music, it takes me back to the beginning when I was hearing early Satch, Timmons or Vai stuff. Before they were an institution.

2 of my favorite guitar albums right now are Sean Bodley's (sean777) Balance and Colin Gailey's Lucid Dream. Just fresh stuff. So melodic!!!

I look forward to it Drew.

Re: Album teaser for my debut, "Zero Mantra" out January!

Hey, thanks man!

Yeah, it's been a LONG time coming, and most of the last year was me just dragging my feet - I had finished masters back by this spring, it just took me a while to get around to figuring out what I wanted written on the physical packaging, and send everything off to my graphic designer friend.

I'll try to do the next one a little faster.

That is so cool you pushed that thing and got it out. I probably have some material that's been hanging around that long, I'd love to be able to get them recorded.

Your songs sound fantastic. Good luck.

Thanks man! I'll post the first "single" here as well once it's for sale if you want to check out a full tune, I'll probably just update the original post though.
