i am a very happy chap to have my old musical mate Iain back from his year training to be a teacher… we had a go at demoing an old new track today about old love… here it is…
The soundcloud player seems to be having some ‘in beta’ issues with firefox at the moment. Hopefully one of the above players will work for you.
Whilst down in Somerset, Basia, Candy, Caitlin and I popped by to visit Jon, AKA Songs From The Shed (
http://www.songsfromtheshed.com/) He has had all manner of brilliant musicians come and perform for him over the years – do check out his site or
youtube channel to see more.
Here is our performance of ‘The Finchley Waltz’ – enjoy…
Last month I spent another day recording with the wonderful Dean Firth but this time I brought some friends along.
My favourite take of the day was this cover of ‘Golden Brown’ by The Stranglers which I have uploaded for your listening pleasure here –
I am hoping to do much more live recording work like this. Capturing a live performance with an ensemble is such a different experience to over dubbing instruments in my little studio!
Christian Lewcock – Percussion and Backing Vocals
Iain Macleod – Banjo and Backing Vocals
Barbara Bartz – Violin
Dean Firth – Electric Bass
Iain and I recently came up with a guitar and banjo arrangement of ‘Happy Man’ by Sparklehorse and recorded it just for fun.
