Direction

I think I know what it means to be wandering in the wilderness.

When I was doing it, I didn’t know I was doing it. Now that I’m out the other side, I can see I was in the wilderness.

Each day I wake up, with music on my brain. This morning I worked. Yesterday I worked, the day before I worked, and the day before that. I worked on songs, recording, lyrics. I stayed up until 6am.

I have my muse and my passion back and I don’t see it leaving again. It’s too easy to do what you love.

Sometimes it’s hard to start doing it. But when you’re actually doing it, it’s easy.

 

🌲The Forest for the Trees

The Forest for the Trees Project was to be a collection of my original songs, to be recorded in a new studio in South London, April/May 2016.

It didn’t work out.

I like simplicity. Sometimes making an album it’s difficult to see the forest for the trees.

Music is a journey which requires focus, but also timing. Sometimes I lose control of both. Sometimes you have to realise you need to, prune back the branches, reset your songs and give them a chance to grow in the right direction.

I love this journey.

The Now Movement

I have a ‘Now’ page: stevekopandy.com/now

It’s about broadcasting what I’m focussed on at a given moment in time. And also as a reminder to myself not to be distracted.

About the movement by Derek Sivers: sivers.org/nowff

I’ve been following Derek since I went to Musexpo LA 2006. He’s a likeable entrepeneur and whom I see as a highly productive and connected individual.

I push on a lot of doors, but I walk through too many that are off track. Recently 2 doors have closed on me. 2 Projects have ended. This is a good thing. I can’t be in 5 places at once.
