On Perfectionism

On Perfectionism by Sam Nicholas (Corrections)
I’ve always been told I’m a perfectionist. I’m still not sure if this is the case. This is a sentence I’ll re-write several times, this a phrase I’ll think about for a few weeks.

Pink Mirror – A version of events

Pink Mirror - A version of events by Jeremy Tuplin
This is an account of ‘Pink Mirror’, the second album by UK singer-songwriter Jeremy Tuplin, by myself, Jeremy Tuplin. I don’t intend to provide any absolute or dictatorial interpretation of the songs on the album, or the record as a whole, as I would never want to do that, but I’m happy to shed some light on the thought processes and ideas that led to them, and it, having kindly been asked to by mySoundposter.

Truths that no one wants to see

Truths that no one wants to see by Pablo Drexler
For me making music has always been about finding hidden lumps of pain, lighting fire to them and watching them disperse into the ether…

WEIGHTLESS/SINKING is the sonic representation of one of the most confusing periods of my life: I was simultaneously getting to grips with how much I had suffered from / attempted to forget the fact that one of my parents is a double cancer survivor, helping my family move out of my childhood home and trying to find my place in the mind-boggling metropolis that is London.

Collaborating with a host of different musicians on the album, I wanted to ensure that each track on my album ’The Town and The City’ was as varied as the settings that inspired the songs themselves.

Mini Adventures in Self-Expression

by David Kingston

Mini Adventures in Self-Expression by David KingstonAs a singer-songwriter for me, each song is a mini-adventure in self-expression. Typically spanning just a few days from inception to release into the world. That is the reality of it, so my approach is to honor that, and especially resist the temptation to contrive into something artificially grand, or to morph into some sort of a product aimed at securing commercial return.
