What Is The Word – June 24, 2014 Edition

Let’s get updated on the latest news :

I’m still recording tracks with producer/musician Jason Mingo for a future full album release. Eight of ten tracks have the foundation laid down (vocals, guitars etc.). You can hear some of the songs over on the Soundcloud page. The drums will have to be farmed out to a drummer and another studio (The same way tracks for the Trenton EP were recorded). There’s no concrete date yet for the album release. The main focus is to pay for everything, then devise a marketing plan in co-ordination with the release date.

 

Recently had a meeting with filmmaker Andrew Fleming and we’re working on shooting some more video over the summer. It’s in the early planning stage but I think it’s something you will enjoy. I will let you know it will include unreleased material. I’m looking forward to you hearing songs in a different way.

Come celebrate the life of Lou Reed (also: his birthday is Sunday, Mar.2) and the music of David Bowie on Saturday, March 1 4pm at The Company House. $5 cover. Local musician Nathan Pilon will play a Bowie solo set and I’ll perform some Lou Reed tunes covering his Velvet Underground/solo material. Shake off those winter blues with a nice matinee of tunes. (PS there is also a Facebook event). Pass it on.

PPS Forgot to mention, I posted a few Lou Reed/VU tunes over on the Soundcloud page
