I'm very excited to announce that a new video is coming very soon! It will be for the song "Slick Disaster" off the new album (Television Graveyard or "TVG"). All principle photography has been shot and we are in the editing process currently. Look for a release by the end of the month! We're planning other special surprises too so stay tuned!
Someone recently gave me a huge complement that also got me thinking. He said, "Man you have definitely NOT hit a sophomore slump on this new album!" For those of you who don't know what that is, it's when a new artists goes to make their follow up album and it turns out feeling rushed or not as solid as the first. In many cases when that happens the artist's career goes downhill as well.
After hearing this it got me thinking about what, in most cases causes this. I would guess it's the pressure that comes with a big music career. If your first release is a strong seller then you have a new, much larger overhead, more eyes at the label are on you to recreate magic. I don't have a large career (don't want one either), no managers or agents, record execs telling me what to do or write or even when to write. I just write and when it's ready, I release it so I can move forward. I don't require fame or even money for my music so my songs have no ulterior motive besides creating them. I think this is why I had no fear or pressure of hitting a sophomore slump. These are all creative luxuries that independent artists have that big label artists don't.
I thought about it more and realized, if I'm selling anything, I'm selling this. I'm releasing music that is a pure expression of someone trying to improve in the craft of songwriting without any other distractions besides trying to grow creatively. I'm hoping there is an audience for artists like myself. With the state of mainstream music these days, I have to hope that there is. -Enzo
