Big Blue Car Music Projects

Big Blue Car is the musical vehicle for Kevin Paul Williams, an English musician and songwriter who has pitched his tent somewhere along the chalk of the South Downs.

I write, record and produce music projects from my studio hideaway in true DIY fashion - and all without the use of traffic cones, hazard lights or GPS - take a look-see if you wish.

What's the music style?

Who are your musical influences?
That's much easier to answer, see below...
 

Not Happy Yet - Delays and Christmas 

Oh woe is me and humbug!

A little bit dramatic I know, but I so wanted to get the album out before the end of the year but this is just not possible, especially as this isn't my day job.

On the flip side though it might actually end up being a good thing. No one in their right mind would release a single or album just before the Christmas period - unless it's a Christmas single or winter themed project.

So let's look at the positives; I can enjoy the Christmas holidays with family and friends, then in…

On our knees, in the soil - where some culture is grown. In the air, tumble-down. It's a new life from sculptured decay.”

New Album

Big Blue Car Music

Happy Yet?
Happy Yet? is almost finished and will be released in early 2019 with track listing looking like this:
1. Make Sense,  2. Than Ever More Than,  3. Peaceful Day,  4. Clever Hans,  5. Satellite Dust Miners
6. Drifting,  7. Home,  8. Rex On The Beach,  9. Mortal Orbits,  10. 25 Kites.

Mastering
I've decided to have the album mastered by an old acquaintance from way back in the days of a previous band (An American In Paris). Rob Aubrey recorded us for a radio 'In Session' segment. So at this point in time it looks like Rob will be doing the honours for me up at Aubitt studios.

Artwork
This is pretty much all done and dusted and I have a few more graphical options for alternative versions of songs.

Distribution
I'll split the distribution between DistroKid and TuneCore.
This currently appears to be the simplest way to get your music on to major streaming and digital download channels.
