So I’m going through one of my writing phases at the moment! Loads of song ideas, even coming back to some old stuff I’d forgotten about! My song writing is becoming more and more centered around the acoustic guitar – which seems to be a natural progression from my latest album, which whilst having a lot of more stripped down arrangements on it, still has a lot of band-centered stuff on it. I imagine the next one is going to be a largely solo-acoustic affair
In a way it seems kind of silly to be talking about a 3rd album when I haven’t even released the second one yet. But hey, I can’t help being inspired, and if I’m writing new songs then I’m writing new songs. I think people often forget anyway that although an artist might have a new album coming out, it isn’t necessarily all that new to themselves. I wrote most of the songs on ‘Remember Me‘ a while back now – some several months ago, and some as way back as when I was working on my debut, ‘Perfectly Fine‘.
Anyway, it’s all very well trying to approach a music career in a business like way, trying to make decisions based on marketing yourself correctly etc – and although I try, when it boils down to it I don’t really care all that much for it. Music comes first.
Changing the topic slightly – I’m working on putting together some audio stems from tracks from the new album up online for people to make remixes with. I plan to choose ones I really like and put a remix album together – which will be available eventually from my site for everyone to download for free. I think it’s hopefully going to be a cool way to help promote the work of some budding independent artists/creative types out there!
Oh and lastly, you can now buy tickets for my album launch online. You’ll still be able to do it the old fashioned way and buy on the door, but I wanted to give both options.

Turrah for now!
By My Side is David Choi’s second independently released album. For those of you that don’t know, David is a singer-songwriter who owes his current success largely to the video sharing website Youtube. He is also a well respected songwriter and producer, having worked for Warner/Chapell.
I give this album 8/10
