Here is where you will find my humble offerings in the form of music. All of these tracks can be downloaded for FREE simply by right-clicking on the track and choosing “download”. I plan on making this process easier, but my technical expertise only goes so far and my technical pros are helping me as they can. But yes, this way you don’t have to have a SoundCloud account to listen or download these tracks any more! Yay! =)
Some of these songs are on their own with no special theme except “Miscellaneous”. And then there are others that are or are soon-to-be part of albums, which I like to call “projects”. I guess you could also call them “collections”. I call them projects because it is a lot of work putting one of these together! An album sounds way too easy, like…I went to a studio and just had to sing while professionals did the rest of the work proficiently and voila! No, no, no…that’s not how it happens here. Project is much more fitting for the tedious work that we do on our own in a home studio. Nevertheless, whatever you end up calling them, here’s the rundown:
I Exist for You – I put this project together about nine years ago. It was my first project.,,ummm…you can tell. Ha! :-) You can also tell that I just kind of jumped into the whole midi sequencing, arranging, audio engineering, mastering thing without having much of a clue as to what I was doing. Yeah. But we all start somewhere, right? And so, even though there are parts (whole songs for that matter) that make me cringe, I’m sharing this project with you. There are people who say they enjoy these songs and maybe there are a few more out there that will appreciate them. I would like to note that “I Come to You” and “Keep Me” were both recently and amazingly remastered, improved, and enhanced by a real audio engineer, Matthew Winfree of Hope66, who worked his magic on them. He also gave me some pointers and tips and taught me some stuff that has helped me on my end with more recent recordings. I really appreciate all his help and just wanted to give a shout out to him and his band. You can listen to the whole I Exist for You project here and download each track individually for free if you so wish.
When I Look Back: the Journey – This is my latest project and I am actually in the process of sharing it. It’s a journey back through the songs that I’ve written throughout the past two years of my health struggle. This project is very raw and honest and I’m using my blog posts, along with YouTube and SoundCloud to make this project complete. The recordings for this project are going to be very simple and will be available to listen to here and download on SoundCloud as I am able to upload them. We may have a nice, fancy one here and there done by my brother, Daniel Tekunoff, but most will be very, very simple recordings, so no great expectations, please! ;-)
All other songs will be going into Miscellaneous, possible getting categorized at some point in time. Some of the songs are super old recordings…about as old as my first project. And others are newer, but still very much dated. It’s all just to share for the glory of God and the benefit of others. I hope that with anything I do or write, it is encouraging to someone. :-)
