Caravan Ray and the Ten Singles

Postby Caravan Ray » Sat Aug 25, 2012 4:40 am

No - I am not promoting a new reality TV show (though I should be - I sent the networks my ideas - and no reply...do you believe it?!?!?)

Anyway - I have a plan of releasing 10 High Quality Professional Singles this year.

In 2009 - I did an Album. Sleeper
http://caravanray.bandcamp.com/album/sleeper

I am still enormously proud of it. It is the thing I can pullout to say to people - "Yep - this is what I do - have a listen"

I thought of doing another album, but 2 things put me off:
1) it was really hard work, and
2) it is 2012 - who listens to CDs anymore

So - I thought - I would go totally modern - and release 10 iTunes singles through CD baby instead of doing an album. Each with a promo video. Or a porno video. Or something,.

No crap. 10 songs I would be proud for my grandchildren to hear.

ANyway - it is now late August and I am way behind schedule. So this thread is to give me some sort of incentive to keep working.

I will post here a link to my new single and the youtube video as the come up. I have done one already - a possibly overly ambitious one back in January - it is OK, I am not embarrassed by it, but I hope the next 9 will be better.

I have 2 (2 old songfight entries, heavily re-done) almost ready to release. So - this thead it a stick poked up my own arse to finish 10 before next year.

I don't think there were enough phallic symbols in that video. :shock:

Nice job though. Good luck. If you need a source for free video you can use, check out the Prelinger Archives.

Previous video made heavy use of the Prelinger Archives.

Thank you Bill.

This song now has a video. I got a bloke from Poland that I found on Fiverr to do it for me. $30 well spent I think - I hate doing video.

LOL!!! It only took 5 years to finish off that last 3%!!!

That last post was written back when I was married. It has been quite an adventure since then. Other priorities
