I hope you all had a very blessed Thanksgiving with your families.
Since everybody else is saying it, I'll say it too... 2020 has been a challenging year. But it has also been one the best years.
In 2020, I spent more time with my kids (cause they were home and not at school) than I have in any other year. I am very thankful for this. Don't get me wrong they need to go back to school in person but I have appreciated the time I have resultantly spent with them. I also spent more time with my wife, which was very needed. This is the first year in many where I've been home for dinner almost every night.
My musicianship has improved tremendously. Why? I played more guitar and practiced more this year than I did last year. Additionally, my skill as a music producer have improved as well.
I spent some time this year producing songs for commercial TV shows and Films. At the conclusion of those projects I felt producing these songs distracted me from my mission to produce music for people with ADHD. However, in producing commercial music to specific requirements set by the TV/Film producers, I learned a lot doing this which made me better.
In 2020, I entered into two collaborations for ADHD Lullaby derivative albums. The first is a Piano based album and the second is a LoFi Beats album. Of the two I am most excited for the LoFi Beats album. If you've never listened to LoFi Beats this is really cool music as it merges Jazz with HipHop in a purely instrumental way (no singing or rapping involved).
Thanks to my supporters on Patreon (https://patreon.com/bryanwisda)I have been able to upgrade some equipment which has greatly improved the quality of the songs I am producing. And, along these same lines, I have acquired some video production equipment which I used to start weekly live performances on Facebook and YouTube.
I am encouraged to see 2020 come to a close and am excited for the New Year.
Happy Thanksgiving and Thank You for your continued support.
