What Was The Last Thing You Made?

Today’s Reverb10 prompt is from author Gretchen Rubin (The Happiness Project):

MakeWhat was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

This one is easy. Last month I released a new album, Aloha Supreme.

I blogged about it every step of the way, so this is not news to regular readers of this blog. I had a moment of hesitation before posting this, thinking it could come off as self-promotional. This is the curse of the independent musician: to always be weary of the intention behind sharing your work. But as this is part of a series in which I’m reflecting on the past year, it would be insane not to include the thing I spent most of my time creating.

With the current state of the music industry, who knows how many more physical CDs I’ll make. I love the process – the writing, recording, experimenting, the artwork – all of it. But even if the CD format is truly doomed, I’ll still be making stuff.

Which leads me to the second part of the prompt:

“Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear the time for it?”

Why yes, it’s time to write another album. And I will be making time for it in the coming months.

Here’s a free download from the new album:

    Such grace in this beautiful song, Christine. This post comes off as sharing, and not self-promotional, at all. After all, you’re answering a question, right?

    Glad to see you’ll be working on another album this year. I wonder how your music will evolve as you sharpen the saw and move into the writing =)

    Music is made to be shared! Glad you did. Absolutely love the song. It seems to fit beautifully with the #reverb10 energy. Thank you!
