It's been forever since I've done this...
Shame on me.I didn't mean to take a 3 month hiatus on the blog posts, but that's what happened.
Since 2010 is half over, I'd like to revisit my goals for this year.
- recording my next album - temporarily on hold
- adding a live drummer to the live set - still looking for a drummer (know anyone?)
- summer regional tour - today is the first day of summer...I have no dates booked
- finalizing the fairy concept album (story and songs) - Oooh!Almost done with this one!
Needless to say, I still have a lot of work cut out for the remainder of the year.
I have been playing a bunch of cool shows in the past few months, that I didn't blog about.I'll do a quick recap in a bit but I do want to clarify something that has been bothering me lately.I've noticed that the press has been dubbing the "One Woman Musical Enigma" as a self proclaimed title, which is not true.Amanda Wells from Landlocked Media called me that a couple years ago and I just decided to run with it.Mostly because it sounds cool and I know damn well I couldn't think of anything on my own.
Why is this bothering me?
I don't know why but I feel like when something that bold is "self proclaimed", it means I'm arrogant as shit.I mean C'mon, my name is Syna So Pro, and I'm constantly having to re-iterate the "So Pro" part means "Solo Project" not
I'll probably get to that in about 3 months.
But the last few shows I've played have been very interesting:
June 4th @ Firebird
I pretty much killed it.One of the best shows I've played in a while.Plus had a great time watching The Breaks debut their first show, as well as Russell Bliss perfecting their performance.
June 5th @ RFT Showcase
Yeah...I sang a lot.People really really dug it.But the PA system was not powerful enough to handle my set up.Plus I was having some weird volume issues with the drum machine.I still feel as though I finished strong and I think I blew some minds.
June 9th @ Darkroom (Chicago, IL)
Uhh...I have been trying and trying to block this terrible memory from my skull.I have absolutely no idea what happened.Basically, my rig failed me in a way it has never fail me before rendering me looking utterly confused and desperately trying to figure out the problem, while everyone stares at me in silence.I finally just gave up and did an acapella set to finish off the show, but Good God that was embarrassing!
June 24th @ CAMSTL
I'm hoping the trend of "BEST SHOW EVER" to "WORST SHOW EVER" stops here.I'm playing with 3 really awesome bands and I want to impress all.
Time for the Facebook Event!
Before I go, I'll try to update you fine people a bit more often...
I'd say about twice a month.
...until next time...
