Idol’s Christmas Message 2015( 'Takes about 3 minutes to read. )

~~ Idol & The Goblet of Fire ~~
- 'Simply one more edifying post. Thumbs-up smiley - Enjoy.

  The Queen (of England) gives one each year, so here goes my attempt at a Christmas message.

I did this last year on the old site. – I just didn’t use this kind of title.

Red Music Notes2015 has been a hell of a year: Musically I feel 2014 had the edge on it, though that’s just my opinion. – Maybe it’s just that I’ve been a little out of touch, and as usual trying to do too much in a short space of time? Whereas 2014 was a year in which many new artists saw their careers blossom, I really didn’t feel that was as much the case in 2015. The new sounds didn’t quite do it for me in the same way either.

Last year at this time I wrote: –

“This last year we’ve seen many new and existing artists on the music scene who, rather than re-inventing old material and recycling it, are creating something new and awesome. Let’s look forward to 2015 in anticipation of more of the same.”

– Well to be perfectly honest I feel that didn’t happen, at least not to the extent that I’d anticipated.

The previous year having the edge on 2015 was possibly somewhat of the case with me too: I only released 4 times this year:

The EP * Brochure * in the early part of the year,

consulfollowed by the mini-album * Idol Instrumental * – which I was rather anxious about releasing: It comprises a number of instrumental versions of my earlier tracks, plus a couple or three other instrumental tracks. I produced it with much gusto and then kind of regretted doing so afterwards; although having said that, tracks have sold, even a little more than I imagined they would.

I did a remix,

* The Winning Hand (Sharron-Idol Extended Extacy Remixx) *

in May 2015 with Australian artist Aria Taylor. I see Aria’s future career literally preparing to explode, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see her become internationally renowned in the next few years.

I think as my crowning glory of all of my releases in 2015 it has to be my EP * Afterglare *.

The title track of which is in a similar style to that of Kate Bush,

and the second track of which I wrote in the style of, and as a tribute to and in honour of the poetical musical genius Marc Bolan.

404I was also doing my best to get a new website together pretty much all of 2015. In the first half of the year I found that music was taking up all my time; so in the second half of the year I tried to share my time between music and tech-geekery. Eventually the tech aspect took the reins; particularly in the last two months of 2015. The site was in beta for a long time, but I had to seriously get my geek on and produce a release candidate and get it launched as a serious site.

This article was written in December 2015, just before the official launch – and after 3 release candidates and literally hundreds of beta builds. In short you’re on that site right now while you’re reading this.

And so, on that note, I’d like to wish you all a very merry Christmas, and a happy and prosperous New Year for 2016.

– Don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do; but if you do: Don’t get caught.
