HOPE - NEW Inspirational Royalty Free Music.

I am pleased to announce “HOPE” my newest Royalty Free inspirational music is now released to Audiojungle and is now available for immediate license. Thanks so much for checking out this uplifting track.
For anyone interested in the composition process of the track. Well, I had started out wanting to ensure the music didn’t get in the way of the epic feeling of the lush chosen electric guitar tone. I had basically combed through patches on my GT10 pedal board, and kept coming back to this lush patch. That was the inspiration for the track. With single notes floating along, I had selected a second guitar patch with a clean warm sound for the rhythm. The right drum sound was important and finding the right snare and kick, with pop sensibilities would help to give it a current sound. The arrangement was built up from there and the bass warm and able to move around a little to play color notes adding tension. Using a DI approach then adding the character of the amp after left room to get great tone. Strings and percussion highlight the track, but stay sparse enough only to add interest and depth.
Thanks for checking out my music :)

Welcome to my Music!

Hello and welcome to my music blog!

This is the first post in my new blog. I’m excited to be finally getting at it and this will be the main source of information for all that I’m doing with music. I have always loved music. Starting back at a young age  my dad took me out to watch my mom play at a local event. I was 4 years old and that was one of my earliest memories of music. I sat upfront and was inspired to maybe one day be able to follow in those footsteps. It’s always been forefront in my mind, and I’ve grown up enjoying all aspects of great music and performers. I am a guitar player,  composer/songwriter and producer. I enjoy helping others with their musical projects and produce projects as time allows. I’ve produced five albums to date and have learned something special from each project. I have been blessed with the ability to write and record from home using great quality equipment, and I’m always improving my studio. I currently compose music for license in the Royalty Free Music stock media libraries and also perform and compose music for the band SwitchGear. I love playing live and enjoy all the great people I’ve met at the events. I love being in the studio and enjoy the creative process and am a lifelong learner when it comes to the craft of songwriting and production. My website JCKerosene.com is just getting categorized, and will be updated often. If you have a moment please stop in and listen to some of my tracks and compositions and I hope you like the music as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it.

Talk Soon!
