My album Backyard
My album Backyard is a collection of ten original songs that explore the electro-jazz and funk-jazz genres. These songs were originally intended to be sold on music licensing websites, but I realized that selling copyright for mere pennies was not worth it for me as an artist. Instead, I decided to regroup the songs that worked well together and create a cohesive Electro-jazz album.
The writing and production of these songs were done quickly, most composed in a single afternoon. I changed my approach to writing music for this album and went for a more straightforward composition style with smaller orchestration.

When writing the songs for Backyard, I focused on creating melodic and solid lines for each instrument. I wanted each part to be heard like counterpoint writing but without following the restrictive rules of classical counterpoint writing. I relied on my musical knowledge and ears to ensure the harmony was respected and every part blended seamlessly with the others.
Overall, I’m proud of this album and the work that went into it. It represents a shift in my creative process and allowed me to explore new musical styles while staying true to my artistic vision.
