Basement coming up Mon 18th Jan with great line up

Hi, welcome to my site. I hope you have had a great Christmas and New Years celebration. Over the last month I’ve been up to Byron for a few gigs and Perth to see family and play for my friends wedding. Soon we are heading down to Adelaide to do a season of the Bob Dylan play, which will be great. Meantime the band and I are playing at The Basement on Monday 18th of Jan with a fantastic line up. I’m just off to see Al Green so I’ll post more info tomorrow. Hope you can make it along to the gig!n242450441573_6867

Rehearsals for the Basement gig on Monday

Had a great practice with Si the other night, and we worked out what songs we want to play. Si is going to join me just on guitar to begin with, which we’ve never done before, and then we’ll build the band up. We’re looking forward to it! Tomorrow Nadene, Steve and I are working out the string parts for the songs and then hopefully we’ll get all together on the weekend. Kitch from The Scarletts has sent me through a Facebook invite for it, which will be good to pass on, but I’ll create my own for my own friends too. If you would like to be invited to any events and I do not have your contact, just shoot me through an email using the contact page on my site.
I have been quite busy with a few other areas of music this week, sending in an application form to sit my grade 7 AMEB exam on classical guitar, and also updating my Under the Treehouse recordings, now that I have them mastered. The play list on the right of the page are all updated, not that you will probably notice, but they are a bit better EQ’d.
p.s. I’ve posted a few more photos on the right column and here a few more…p08-06-09_162402

Recording from the Basement in January

Lenni Munro, who performed her own stunning set and sung with me on my tunes, has just passed on to me  the live recording from our January date at The Basement together. Chris, who engineers the sound there, and who does such an awesome job, put together a CD of the night and I’m stoked with the tones, levels and atmosphere that he has captured. I am currently in the process of working with him on a couple of songs from that night which I will hopefully  be able to post soon as it is not often I get to play such a beautiful piano and have Lenni and Michael’s harmonies all at once.

As far as the weekend of music went, it was a lot of fun with Laura and Emma making it to Botany for our Waterworks duo gig with Steve on violin. We met a great couple, and the girl was a great singer and guitarist, just touring with Adam Brand, and she played for a us some of her songs, which were fantastic!
