GUEST BLOG: Limitations Expanding Creative Possibilities

In the digital age of recording and editing, exciting possibilities have opened up that would have been almost impossible to achieve before. These options have lent themselves to new and exciting ways of creating music. When recording the drums for this record, I had issues capturing the kit as expansively as I wanted because I was limited to working with two channels in a room not optimal for recording. After many attempts and no success, I decided my only option was to think about the drums differently, which ultimately led…

WATCH: Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” Music Video

Ed Sheeran released the music video for the third single of X, “Thinking Out Loud” today. The music video is sensual and romantic.

With folksy, country edge, this will charm the socks off of anyone that listens to it (see also “Never Looking Back”). Guaranteed. Gentlemen, please take notes: this is what your girlfriend wants to hear. If you’re looking for…
