Dae likes playing/learning new covers. Suggestions?
Idk if anyone noticed or not, but I’ve been posting covers of songs I like lately in order to get past being nervous about/unsure of/not-yet-used-to my new lower voice.
Its a lot easier to put yourself out there for judgement with someone else’s song.
I’m still writing and am still planning on putting out an album, I just want to feel more comfortable with my voice first. I’m getting there, I’ve made a lot of progress for sure.
I’ve even figured out that if I tune my guitar a whole step down (so the low E string is a low D string, and so on) that I can sing anything I play much more comfortably (and it doesn’t sound half bad, lol).
So what I’m asking of you, my kind followers/supporters/stalkers/creepers (I appreciate you all, and I’m hella creepy on the interwebs too, so please don’t take that personally) is to send me ideas on songs I should cover. I play acoustic guitar and ukulele, so message me with a cover idea and tell me which instrument to use. I feel like this can be a fun way to play some new music and get my creativity flowing. Don’t hesitate to inbox me with a song idea. Even if I don’t know the song, I’ll listen to it until I know it well enough to play. Thanks in advance for anyone who wants to throw some ideas at me.
solace-in-the-storm asked: Will you release your album online at all? I would love the hear it. As far as your voice change, it sounds really great. For a lot of Trans* men, transitioning "ruins" their singing voices (or so they say) it may become scratchy or even a little squeaky, but yours sounds excellent =]
Yeah, it’ll be only available online. I’ve found some sites that I can upload my recordings to and sell through as an MP3. Stay tuned, I’ll let it be known when I finish writing and get an album together.
And thank you for the compliments on my voice, Its been a struggle, but I’m happy with my progress so far.
solace-in-the-storm asked: I just wanted to tell you how much i love the lyrics of "Cold Spots in the Ocean" Especially "I wandered into wonderland, without the slightest notion, that it would sweep right through me, just like a cold spot in the ocean". You're very, very talented. Keep it up! =]
thank you! [:
Really, thank you a lot. Its taken my utmost guts to start recording my music again since my voice has been changing. Thank you bunches. I’m glad my music is being enjoyed. I plan to arrange an album with all of my originals on it soon.
