Song 3 – “Los Angeles II”

This song is a bit of a continuation from the last one.

The individual is trying to deal with love, and trying

to deal with the implications of sacrificial love. Each

line starts with a question, and then makes a statement

based off his question. These questions reveal the man’s

doubts and fears of trying to love someone, and being loved

by someone. He knows his weaknesses and short comings,

and wonders if they will be too much, and will hinder him

from ever being loved.

It’s the fear we all have to some degree. We don’t want to

die alone, and go through this life without the love of at least

one person. It’s also the longing of being known, but also the

fear of being known. Will the other person use this knowledge

for my good or for their gain? Will this person be scared away,

or will they stay anyway?

It’s a song of questions, doubts, longings, inner agony, and

living through the unknown. Musically it’s repetitive and goes

in cycles. I don’t think I did this intentionally but maybe

subconsciously. This is totally how my brain works when I’m

looking for answers or struggling with doubts and fears. It’s

an endless cycle causing me to lose sleep and lose track of

reality. I get swept away in the monotonous cycle of questions

wondering when it will cease.

Kickstarter Campaign

We’re about halfway through my Kickstarter campaign.

I haven’t promoted it too much, because I don’t want to

bog people down or feel pushy. As time draws near, I’m

getting more and more worried and more and more desperate.

I’m not a huge fan of asking people to donate their hard-earned

money towards my own goals. On the other hand, I do feel

passionate about this album and its individual tracks. I wish I

could show people snippets of these songs, but we can’t start

recording until we reach our goal. It’s a bit of a catch 22 at this

point.

I will say that I’ve been honing my skills and ears for tone and quality

over the last couple years. We’re also working with The Lodge Studio

in Indianapolis, IN. Michael, the owner of The Lodge, has been a sound

engineer for over 30 years and has worked with artists such as Bela Fleck,

Gavin DeGraw, John Legend, Jack Johnson, Pink, Weezer and many more.

He worked out in L.A. before moving to Indy. I can’t wait to have his expertise

on this album. Please consider being part of this album financially, but please

do so quickly since time is running out. Thank you.

Blast Off

Well folks, it’s official. I launched my first Kickstarter campaign this morning.

It’s a scary thing to ask for help, especially when it’s financial help. It feels

weird and no one likes to do it. At the same time, it’s wonderful to be part of

a community. To share in the excitement and to press towards a common goal.

My hope is that I’ll meet my goal, but I also hope people can get excited with me.

Ways to help meet this goal is by giving financially. Another way is to spread the

word, and with social media nowadays, it’s not too hard. Another way to be part

of this journey is to invest in it by the ways listed above, but also by staying up-

to-date with the project.

Ways to do that are by following my blog updates,

Kickstarter updates, following my band page on Facebook, following on Twitter,

following on Instagram, and dialogue. Feel free to contact me at my email:

raywyattmusic@gmail.com. Feel free to ask questions, leave feedback, or just

say hello. I’d love to hear from you.
