About

Triad Album Project

Triad will be the title of my new album. My plan is to record an album of original songs with local musicians in local recording studios in the Dayton, Ohio area. The songs will be a mix of new & old songs that I have written. Along with the recordings of groups, I plan to record short solo guitar pieces to put in-between the group recordings.

The idea for the title Triad comes from two different sources. The 1st source comes from reserching my family surname Murrell, which is English in origin. On one website that I found, it's suggested that Murrell means in service of Merlyn the legendary Druid magician. This resulted in me researching Merlyn, King Arthur, and the Druids. In my studies of the Druids I found out that many of their beliefs, teachings, & customs were based on the number 3 and were called Triads.

The 2nd source for the title Triad comes from the music triad which is a 3 note chord build in intervals of 3rds. The music triad is the simplest & most pure of all chords. Triads are also the base of all modren harmony. So, triads are very important in music!

I'm looking forward to getting this project going. I hope that you will enjoy the music on my new album Triad!

Peace & happiness,

James Murrell

Risks and challenges

The risk envolved with completing my album include: 1. Organizing the sessions with the other musician's schedules. 2. Booking the studio times to fit everyone's schedules including the recording engineer & mixing engineer. Most of these problems are easy to fix quickly, so I don't feel as though there will be many problems with the scheduling of the other musicians, engineers, & studio.
