PAYSON LEWIS

project:  future

INTENTION.

To change the lens through which I interpret my role as an artist and reimagine the way I look at my creative process and products.

MISSION.

To create music for the enjoyment of others, near & far, and to provide employment & opportunity wherever and however I can.

ACTION.

Reexamining unreleased music, assessing works in progress, and planning a course of action to complete & release new music.

FLIGHT PLAN

LAUNCH SEQUENCE

All that is great in theory. But time to put my money where my mouth is. So let's get to work. Consider this page my "Cape Canaveral." I will continually update this page as progress is made and new material is written and added to the queue.

UNRELEASED MASTERS

ONLY  YESTERDAY

These have been sitting on the shelf for too long. Earlier this year I thought that it didn't "feel right" to be releasing music but I realize now that because things are hard...it's actually the most important time to be creating and releasing music.

Commencing Releases: January 2021

READY FOR PRODUCTION

OUT  FOR  BLOOD

Over the course of time here, I think I've lost sense of just how much material I have literally ready to go. These demos aren't perfect but they're enough to get a band in a room and make it happen and work out the kinks. With 8 tracks here...that could be 3-4 days in the studio. That's a lot of opportunity for creation and community. Time to cash in on it.

Begin Recording: January 2021

IN DEVELOPMENT

GET  ME

Obviously some of these are a little further off than others. But I think generally the bones of the songs here are pretty good. Some of them just need some fleshing out, others need to find their direction. It's just good to know that I'm not just operating and producing on the "only" songs I have; That there's stuff in the pipeline and still more to come as I continue to write.

OTHER PROJECTS

While my main focus will be on the "full" record version of these songs, I also want to be simultaneously working on some other projects. My goal being to maximize my opportunities to connect with my listener community and to provide opportunities for my creative community.

CONCLUSION

I hope that what I've laid out here is in anyway inspirational, motivational, organizational or at least has some kind of impact at all. It was my goal to try and lay out my thinking behind things and what is driving me forward. Hopefully through that understanding of me and what I stand for you can help me bring some of these projects to life and help achieve the ultimate desired effect:

 

Bringing Happiness To People's Lives.
