I feel like a broken record... figured I should post a quick update since this site/page is getting more hits than I figured... considering I haven't really been making many records or recording this year.
This entire year has been eaten up by my new band (Deadset Society). I've learned a lot (more) about bands, touring, the music industry, etc. I've been putting my thoughts for bands into action and so far so good... we've come a long way in a year!
In short though...
1) I've held off posting my usual long winded tour blog posts... too hard to do those while on these tours (since I also tour manage).
2) I've started posting shorter daily recaps on Facebook: www.facebook.com/heylangford
3) I'll be creating a new website asap. What I do has sorta changed and there are other areas I'd like to branch out into and include. I've wanted to get into managing/consulting over the last few years and I might pull the trigger on starting a label (or two) with some industry friends... they keep bringing it up... and I like to stay busy apparently. lol. *tear*
4) Recently announced joining the Los Cabos Drumsticks family. It's my first endorsement so I'm pretty excited about it... it was my goal to have a stick endorsement by age 34 so I'm glad I was able to accomplish it. Thanks to Phil at Los Cabos and everyone who's said congrats!
5) I need to find a way to make music on the road... well... more find the time... I miss it.
Much love to everyone who's been checking in... I do miss recording music, I really miss mixing, and I REALLY miss hearing great music, in its infant stage, before anybody else.
Keep fighting the good fight...
P.S. I miss hockey and video games. *tear*
