fourth




this is so out of my element at points. i forget that im not restricted by a record label or pop formula. this is definitely a growing point in my musical life, i feel as an artist i am exploring into the depths of music without getting arty for art's sake. we came up with an idea on the song 'sheet music' to set the mic up right on the piano so i in essence sing right into the piano. we put books on the pedal so that the piano would hold every note i sang. the outcome is lush and noticeable. when you hear the song you will pick up on it. i really enjoy working with aaron, he has an ear for music and knows where i want to take this music. i have had a lot of cool people hanging out around me during this process. john bucklew, franc, lamar grey, travis mitchels, racheal and racheal, jack, drew, nichole, etc. thanks guys for the support and free coffee.

i would give so much to be with you in that studio right now. You and Aaron are 2 of my all time favorite vocalists and lyricists. I wish I could be there and hopefully will get the money to fly you to NE Ohio.

The pictures are awesome. I can't wait to hear the record. I'm really looking forward to hearing the redone version of 'sheet music'
I think the mic set up will make your voice sound even more amazing than it already is. Thanks for the updates. Keep posting awesome pictures!

Thank you for branching out and doing this solo preoject. It shows you can step out of the conformed lines the labels put on you. That is encouraging.

When you sing into the piano... say yo're singing an middle C, you should try holding down the two C's above that (not play them, just make it so the string is open.

I think that would sound really cool.

I love that piano you keep taking pictures of. It looks like it'd be amazing fun to play on. Love pianos.

It sounds like things are going amazingly well--I'm so glad!

it's awesome, finally seeing an artist not having to conform to a "pop formula" as you said... you have no limitations! also, i just wanted to let you know that i heard "paperthin hymn" on the radio - a local station does this thing called "the cage" every night, where 2 songs go head-to-head and people call in to vote for their favorite out of the 2, and pth has been winning for the past 6 or 7 nights

This is a great blog. Copeland and Anberlin are definitely awesome bands and it's gonna be great to listen to something different, birthed out of people in those bands.
I asked this before but didn't see if there was an answer: Where did you get the name "estaban"? My name's Esteban (Steven in Spanish) and I'm wondering if Estaban is in some other language or a typo.
Keep posting pictures and a 5 second audio clip would be a good idea. Maybe a special website too.


God bless.
Esteban.
