Permanent Press – About the Album

So this is my first EP I’ve ever written. I used it as a means of exploring different stylistic influences and honing my sound. All of the songs draw inspiration from different aspects of my life over the past few years. But overall I kept it pretty lighthearted and fun. I’ve only been singing for a little over a year. So a lot of my time went to writing lyrics and figuring out my voice. I definitely learned a lot as I worked on this album. I think I need to focus a bit more on consistency in the vocal tracking. Once I had the arrangements sorted out I really delved into mixing theory and spent a good deal of time getting more comfortable with that.

The artwork and title of the album came from a picture I took at my old apartment in Tulsa. I was pretty stoned at the time and thought it would make a great album cover. So when time came to write the EP, I figured, “Fuck it, why not?” Seemed fitting for an EP. I also love alliteration. So that too. No real deep meaning to it.

I may write some posts about individual songs. I know I plan on getting into the recording process and mixing approach down the road. I’ll probably post videos about that. I am eager to hear more feedback. I know some of you have already shared your thoughts. What did I do write, what could I do better? It’s all appreciated.

Thanks,

Landon
