As most of you know, Bobby and I are the only two members of Backyard Heroes. We also live in two different states. We do a lot of writing and most of the time all recording together in at least one of the states. Today we’re releasing a demo (by no means a final version) that we are both proud of.
We’ve had this guitar and bass part that Bobby recorded a while back and it was just waiting for more to be added. So today, I just got the urge to record. I figured I’d just do a simple scratch vocal for the melody to have something to start with when we work together again. From there I just kept going. I recorded vocals, harmonies, and some simple percussion. The percussion just consisted of me bruising my hand on my guitar case over and over. I sent my work to Bobby and he approved. We thought it’d be rad to share how productive we can be within two states thanks to the wonders of technology. Hope you enjoy this demo.
We’ll be together again tomorrow, performing live at The Crossroads in Garwood, NJ. That’s right, tomorrow, Saturday, January 5th. Come and hang out with us.
Stay classy, and most importantly, stay saucy,
The other day Bobby realized and reminded me that we’ve been a band now for about a year. We started writing last march just here and there. Then we finished a song called It’s Time and recorded it’s first demo with our friend in NYC in April. That’s how Backyard Heroes started. We’d been best friends for a lifetime and had written music separately, then finally started to try writing together. It’s pretty awesome to see all we’ve accomplished and gotten to do in this past year and we look forward to doing so much more in the future. So today, I post our song It’s Time. This isn’t the original NYC demo however, this is the version you can find on our demo EP that we sell at shows. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for sticking with us!
