Hi everyone! Lewis here!
Sorry I’ve not been as busy and active as I used to be on this page. I feel I should explain that Junkyard Academy has grown to four members and I’m discovering that each of them has a crazy amount of talent. It’s why I’ve been under the radar…that, and we just bought a house…and the mother in law was visiting…and I got a job working from home…and…and…and!
The band has gone from ‘just me’, (claiming to be all the members of the band as I have for the past five years), to an, honestly phenomenal bunch of guys. I’ve been taking the reins as an actual ‘official band leader’; conducting pre-practice meetings, mapping out where we’re headed, formulating ways for us to get there and, web stuff, merchandise stuff, scouting sites to get gigs…. and of course, working on the music.
Every song I’ve written has been written in this notepad; given to me by my wife.
Up to recently, it was too easy for me to write a song, tab it out into a lead sheet, and play into a camera to post a video on YouTube, (a place which I have, in the past, dubbed as my ‘online notebook’), but with the amazing talents of Jimmy, Rob and Kevin, we expect to wow you with a whole new sound! One with more than one voice and one guitar…and yes, we’re in the studio working on two new songs for you!
By the way, I know I’ve said this before, but I am absolutely floored at how much talent these guys have, both with their craft as well as the off-stage creativity; something you’ll soon be getting a taste of soon!
If this is sounding like a press release, it’s not…honest, it’s just little old me, Lewis, talking from the heart.
I want so badly to get the band in front of a bigger audience and I know that our efforts will pay off. We just know that you’ll all recognize what we’re about to do as just plain awesome. So, with as much work to do getting the band ‘out there’ I hope you will forgive the temporary absence here on Word Press – feel free and let us know what you’re up to as well, we’re interested in you, the fans!
