Making An Album

So this is new. I made an album. Like a real album. It'll be popping up on Spotfiy and Apple Music and other services soon so keep an eye out for it.

This is just my first tiptoes of footsteps into music and general music creation. The Future Isn't Better is purely a trial and error album. Yes I'm proud of it but I kinda wish I could make something better if you get me? I listen to artists like Jamie XX and Years and Years I yearn to create amazing songs like theirs but it's not as easy as you think. I'm working with Themes on releasing their album and singles and at first I didn't think too much about what kind of effort and pure skill goes into creating great music. I mean, I put a lot of effort into my songs and their not even that good so I can't even comprehend how much work Ed and Hamish must put in when creating their songs.

You can listen to my next single for free below

Taking A Break

Well this is ironic considering my last post.

I will be posting a video to YouTube for those who don't like reading and with a bit of a more indepth description. I have decided that, after much deliberation, I'm going to take a break from my YouTube channel. I know this will affect very little of you I just felt like I should write this to let people know.

When I was 8 years old I fell in love with YouTube and it's what started my love of videoing. Now I'm 15 and am growing bored of creating churned out, repetitive and unoriginal content. I want to make good shit. I have my GCSEs coming up and, although probably 1/9 of them will actually help me getting into film school, I want so badly to do well.

To get a good mark I'm going to have to try hard. I'm not naturally clever at most subjects. I need all the time and concentration my body can provide and the elimination of distractions is a great aid to maximizing that level. One of those big distractions for me is social media. I'll still be there, just less frequently.

Those two are possible the main contributing factors to this decision but another problem in my mind is the level of following I have on YouTube. It's not big. Actually tiny in the grand perspective of things. Not only does that give me less motivation to post regularly, it deprives my hopes of sharing my content with a wider audience.

My way forward, to stay reasonably online, is to work on my Vine. It's different, it's creative and something that I'd really like to see work. I already have a bigger following on Vine than YouTube so it's a better place to boost my content. I hope that some of you will at least give me some early support on the platform and maybe start using it more to view other peoples Vines.

Thanks for the constant support and thank you for getting my YouTube where it is today. I hope that after this break I can come back to something I want to work on making better. Thanks for reading and I hope to be back here soon.

YouTube

So, this post was always gonna have to happen. Better sooner rather than later right? I'm writing it today because today, the 28th of October 2015, I've hit 250,000 views on my YouTube channel (252,000 to be exact).
