MY FIRST TIME: ANSON

Hi my name is Anson Li of the band ANSON and I’m going to tell you guys today the story of how ANSON formed. My whole life I’ve always wanted to be in a band. Even before I started my solo project Anson Li back in 2012, I was always looking for other musicians to jam with and longed for companions on my musical journey. Originally, ANSON wasn’t supposed to be a band project. When I was looking to start writing music again I struggled to find any members for…

The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: The Impact Of Social Media

From the very beginning, everyone in Palatine Harbor has continuously been learning from our successes, failures, and opportunities. We started with something simple and of course, as most bands start, only thought that we had to produce good music for people to notice. We soon learned the importance of social media and how intense of an impact it makes on fans and their impression of you as a band. Starting with Facebook, we learned it is crucial to spread the word to anyone who has interests in bands that seem…

The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Invest In Yourself and Follow Your Passions

I’ve been making music my whole life. I started playing piano at age five, guitar at twelve, and started writing songs around the same time. I used to get in trouble when I was young for drumming on my desk or singing during class. All I wanted to do when I was young was write songs, sing, and play music. I’d sit in my parents’ basement for hours fiddling with Garage Band, recording, making beats, and playing with ideas. Time was irrelevant — I got lost in the creative process….

The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Don’t Try To Control Your Creativity

I have spent a lot of time writing songs. A LOT of time. It started when I was 13, matching up simple poems to the first 3 chords I had learned on the guitar. Fourteen years and a huge stack of notebooks filled with songs later, I still notice something peculiar about it: you never know how the song is going to turn out. I’ve also realized that you also never know where those songs may lead you in your career path. It does take hard work overall, but those moments…

The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Be Your Own Clock

Often times, and especially when you are DIY, artists have deadlines they have to meet. They have to have songs done in time for recording so they don’t waste time in the studio. They have to be on time for shows. They have to get the video out in time for the corresponding season. They have to book shows 5 months ahead of time. It’s crazy! When I was recording the demos to my newest batch of singles, I was very concerned with timing. I was getting them done, but…

Mental Health Matters: Overthinking

It’s normal for me to overthink things. From the small day to day elements that hardly get a second mention, to the overarching difficulties in life that feel sticky in my head, there’s always something coming back to me again and again. When I’m going through life as I usually do, I’ve learned to combine a healthy mix of a stimulating and busy schedule, a calm, direct approach to over thought worries and being honest with my friends and family as a means to overcome. It’s important to both not…
