New Music!

I have new music for the podcast.

Hey folks!

I’m glad you’re here today. I’m mean…I’m glad you’re here everyday, but–

a podcast for creative people, by creative people
On APPLE, SPOTIFY, or wherever you get podcasts!


Anyway. I made a few new tracks that I may use on the podcast in the future. Mostly as segue music from intro to interview, or from one segment to another. You know, not stuff I’ll put on iTunes or anything. Just something to signal a change, and maybe to use as low-playing background music for some segments.

Feel free to comment but (as always): If you’re going to be mean, at least be funny.

This first one is roughly a twenty second track looped for 18 minutes. Why so long? So I can cut it shorter (takes 2 seconds) rather than make it longer (takes 2 minutes) for custom timing.

Song 1 (Continuous loop after about 20 seconds)

“Song 2” is a fun one. It’s repetitive however, it is not a loop. The end veers off in a slightly different direction. This would be a good one for shorter segues, I think. What do you think?

Song 2

Finally, this song is something I put together more because I wanted to do a quick improvised track with this particular effect. It’s one I wouldn’t normally write songs with/for–I’m more of an acoustic guy usually.

Song 3

I alway claimed to be a musician, never a talented one. So if you thought you were gonna hear some actual songs…


I guess I’ll throw in Creative Ops’ theme song.

OK, it’s not really the theme song. The “theme song” is a looped version intro/bridge of an actual song called “Longsleeves”. It’s a song I wrote and performed. The performing part was tricky. I was in a studio in Virginia. First they had me record the guitar track. Then the drums. Then the bass guitar, before finally doing split vocal tracks. I’m amazed at what real music producers can do with minimally talented artists:

“Longsleeves” is a song about a girl addicted to heroin. Like most songs about heroin, it’s strangely upbeat…

Thanks for stopping by. If you do listen to Creative Ops, please leave a REVIEW as well as a RATING! Believe it or not it helps the show get seen by more eyes. You can review it on APPLE, SPOTIFY, or wherever you get podcasts!

I’m super grateful for you either way. Here’s the last few episodes, if you’ve yet to hear them:
