music is life, music is breath, music is us

Announcing my hiatus

Guys, it’s been a crazy five years. I can’t believe what this little blog/webzine turned into and I will be forever grateful for all the love I’ve received because of it. So many musicians from so many different backgrounds and genres, I never imagined that I’d get this lucky.

The thing is, trying to balance the maintenance of this site has become progressively more difficult post-UCLA when I graduated in 2014. Between my work as a cybersecurity journalist and my new punk band Amherst Drive (which is getting awesome reception in the punk world), I simply don’t think I am able to do this anymore. At least for now.

So it is with a heavy heart that I announce the hiatus of MixolydianBlog. I will keep the site up and running so that all the work I’ve put into it doesn’t fade away, but there won’t be any new posts for quite some time.

I receive so many submissions of so much great music that I feel like I’m letting you down by doing this. Musicians who send me their music deserve to be heard, and you as a reader deserves to hear about it.

Nevertheless, I must do what is best for me at this point in my life. It is time to really push for the music career that I was born to do. Please follow me at facebook.com/AmherstDrive or amherstdrive.bandcamp.com to see what I’m up to musically. Also feel free to check out techgenix.com to see my journalism in Information Security.

For now I say goodbye, but let’s call this a “goodbye for now” rather than a “goodbye forever.” Perhaps I will come back, I’d sure love to when my life allows for it, and when my passion perhaps returns strong enough to do it.

I love you all. Thank you for everything.

-Derek
