Haven’t written a post for a while because I’ve been writing music, lyrics, studio charts, mix notes, and digital album content. This is how the artist in me has been spending those long, lonely COVID nights.
So, now that all the recording is done, and I have the first professional mix; wanted to share a preview of “A Little Dose Of Heaven” by Billy Ray Norris with y’all here!
Now this is Mix 1, and I usually have 4-6 mixes before reaching the final. So you may hear some imperfections, and this is what I’ll be writing about for a while (to the mixing engineer) — minor revisions to finish polishing the mixes up before getting the ISR codes, UPC, and other embedding data; getting the album mastered; getting it registered with my Performing Rights Organization (BMI); and then ready for release. But Joe, my mixer, did such an amazing job on this first mix that there may only be 2 or 3 mixes needed for this album.
We’re almost there, and these mixes sound like something you’d hear on the radio — and soon will!
They are about life, love, and truth. They tell stories of real life experiences. I hope they move you, and that you connect with their joy, pain, inspiration, and empowerment.
No money, no downloading, just a fresh new pre-release playlist to stream and share!
I’m planning to officially release it on April 22, 2022 — Earth Day.
So here’s the album “A Little Dose Of Heaven” Mix 1 by Billy Ray Norris, containing 11 of my original Country songs! I hope you enjoy these acoustic watercolors hung in the gallery of my heart! Maybe some will soon be hanging in yours too!
