With so many social media outlets, its hard to keep them all current and afloat. But since I’m paying for this one, I should probably give it some more love!
Its been a quiet ride on the music front for me. A few performances, a few songwriting sessions, a couple sessions. Its one thing to be an artist and play a lead instrument (acoustic guitar, piano), but when you play an instrument that holds the weight, its a lot harder. Not too many people want to hear someone do a set with the bass as the lead. Anyway, not complaining. Its a different way forward for the percussionists/backbeaters.
Did a double last night with Phil. Played Elgin, then the Royal Oak. Open mic, yes. But always beneficial to play for different crowds. Both were impressed and wanted more. Look out for us around Cap City!
Long time to post. Well, been working on some recordings/video and hope to have them up sometime in the next few months.
In the meantime, doing a show with the talented Phil Kesler on August 4th at the Shenkman Theatre in Orleans. Follow the link on the main page, or contact me for tickets. Hope to see you there!
Live local showcase. We open things up, then The Copper Altar and Maeve Lalonde finish. In the meantime, enjoy one of the songs we’ll be performing!
We’re back at Zaphod’s on February 15th. In the meantime, here’s a video I did with him last week. Did a photoshoot, and decided to use my DSLR. If you’re in the area, come out. We’re on third!
Just heard the final mix for a song I worked on with Phil Kesler this morning. My car is in the shop, so I’m gradually buying one thing off of the Tim Horton’s menu until the work is done. I have a pair of earbuds that I keep with my laptop. Last week, one of the ears decided to stop working. Although I listened with one ear, its a very good mix. And I want to share it . . . . now.
But you know how these things go. Producer says March. So we wait. In the meantime, if you want to hear the first version, recorded about a year ago . . . Promised Myself (Demo) – Phil Kesler
While I wait for my bass to be setup, here’s Flea with an intro lesson on the bass guitar. By far, the best intro to bass video on Youtube!
Spent my last week in Grenada to see a good friend of mine get married. It was great being able to be a witness as well as to be away before the cold of winter hits. I have a few memories of sand and sun to keep through the season. Bass is in the shop for a week or so. I also didn’t play while away. Hope I don’t lose my chops!
