Just a quick post to let you know that a couple of my tracks were featured on this week’s podcast by Jayme Lewis.
Jayme is a session bassist, producer and author over in Los Angeles. His website is a great place to start if you want to check him out. Which I strongly suggest you do. His tutorial videos on YouTube are always excellent and I’ve been listening to his podcast for a while now. He always plays great tunes on there and I’ve certainly discovered some fantastic music via the podcast. In fact I first heard the awesome Mister Barrington on Jayme’s podcast about a month ago.
Jayme got in touch with me a couple of months ago to see if he could include a couple of my tracks. Of course he could! In this week’s episode he plays some mysterious song from The Knowledge Of Things To Come (which is still available as a PWYW download via Bandcamp and iv from the trio record Foreground Music, Vol. I with Jez Carr and Mike Haughton.
It’s always interesting to see which tracks people pick to showcase an album. To be honest I’d be hard pushed to pick a particular track from any of my solo recordings as an example of what I do when I’m playing solo. I think some mysterious song is actually a great choice now I hear it on it’s own. That track contains a lot of the features that characterised the album for me so here’s a big thumbs up for Jayme…
ps. Jayme, if you read this: the rhythm track you hear was the sound of me plugging my bass in looped up at the start, It is indeed all live from start to finish…
Here’s One of Jayme’s records for you to check out. It’s available via those lovely people at Bandcamp.
So, please go forth and check out Jayme Lewis and all the great stuff on his website. Big thanks to Jayme for the feature. It’s always great to know that someone appreciates your music and I’m in great company being featured on his Podcast.
Until next time…
Many of you know that I have been playing with Maggie Reilly for many years now. Some of you may have even been lucky enough to actually see the band play live at some point. But for those of you in the UK the opportunity to see the band has been a little scarce shall we say. Aside from a couple of small shows at the Tron Theatre a few years ago I have never played a UK show with Maggie. We tend to tour around Germany and Scandanivia for the most part. But the wait is finally over boys and girls!
Next Monday 16th December we are playing a show at Bush Hall in Shepherds Bush to celebrate the release of Maggie’s new record Heaven Sent.
Here’s a little video of us playing her latest single Juliet at a radio concert in Hamburg a couple of months ago, in case you haven’t heard Maggie before. I’m sure you have…
Seriously don’t miss this show if you can make it. I’m sure there will be more UK dates to follow next year but for the time being it’s the only one planned and I’ve certainly waited a long time for this one! The band features Stuart MacKillop on keyboards, Davie Dunsmuir on guitar, and Tony Soave on drums.
Tickets are £15.00 and can be purchased online via the Bush Hall website. Hopefully see you all there!
Just a quick post tonight I promise…
Today marks one year since the release of Foreground Music, Vol. I from the trio with Jez Carr and Mike Haughton. We have yet to start work on any new material but I’m sure we’ll get down to something once the new year starts. I’ll let you all know what we’re plotting once we have some proper plans.
Until then I’d say right now is the perfect time to pick up your copy of the record. The album is exclusively available via Bandcamp as a digital download. Check out this lovely review from Oliver Arditi, posted in June.
Whilst you’re over on my Bandcamp page, why not grab one of my solo recordings to check out too? They’re all available for whatever you want to pay for them. We had such a great response to the record when it came out a year ago. I hope you like it and do spread the word.
Until next time…
