Hey, thanks man! I think I've done better with the acoustic stuff than anything I ever did electric. I suppose some people are just wired to do things a certain way. And I enjoy it a lot more too!
I subscribed to your mannaforra account on YT a while back, digging what I hear! It's a shame you guys don't have more subs/views. You've got a great rock voice! And the music in that Who You Are video is wonderful. Did you guys record at home or in a studio?
Thanks man. We're building up a local presence slowly but we've only been on the scene a couple of months really. We had quite a few line-up and name changes leading up to our first gig and album release. We'll hopefully be doing a lot more in 2018. We live in a small town too so it's tough going getting gigs.https://mannaforra.bandcamp.com/releases
I recorded the tracks myself at my house. I've been doing it for years and finally reached a point where I feel I can achieve a quality I think is worth releasing. We get better every month as a band and my singing is still getting stronger so watch this space! Our new material is far more ambitious and has a couple of AB style epics.
You ever recorded anything? You definitely got song ideas that are worth putting down.
Ohh yeah, I know the small town blues, I live in a town of barely over 1000 people.
There are a few regular places I play at, and always looking to get out and find more. It was a pretty slow year this year, lots of personal stuff going on (got married, bought a house, had a baby... boom).
I don't have any studio-quality stuff recorded, but I do have some live tracks from a few years ago up at https://moonriseblue.bandcamp.com
. I keep thinking about recording a full album, as I have just about enough original songs to do so and now with the new house, I have a spare room set up for recording, but just need to find the time and gumption to get going on it.
