Saturday Night…

It was a fine evening for some fire twirling, a few beers or 3 and some great music….

SaturdayNight

Despite what many would have you believe, the UK isn’t all bad. As the summer finally arrives, beer gardens are as tempting as they ever were. Turn the telly off, call a friend and go visit one.

Devil May Care

Once, a while ago, we were asked to submit a tune for the audiobook of the James Bond story by Anthony Horowitz, “Devil May Care”

Nope, we didn’t get selected, despite some good responses, but there you go.

Anyway, here it is….

I’m preparing a few other tunes for a little album for sale & download. If you want to know when it’s ready, either follow me on Twiter, or sign up for the email notifications. (Your email is safe with me. And no, don’t ask for my list, you’re not having it.)

Testing Soundcloud…

Time to start putting tunes up on the interwebs, and I’ve discovered Soundcloud….

So, first up, the demo which was recorded for the recent’ish James Bond audiobook, “Devil May Care”, by Sebastian Faulks. Pour yourself a martini, shaken, not stirred, click the big orange button on the left and then, turn the speakers up loud. That’s my advice.

And gradually, more tracks will appear, all on the music page, if you’re interested…..

How You Like Me Now….

On a bit of a “YouTube Music Video Trip” at the moment…..

Just found this lot after watching “The Fighter” and hearing this tune. Good idea to have this one up as loud as possible…..

I’m gonna play it again….

And then, this bit of guitar playing never ceases to impress me…..

Normal blogging may resume shortly, if I can think of something to report….

Countdown….

The kids first “proper loud gig” is nearly here….

Muse are in Vancouver and as I’ve said before, after missing Elbow, the missus and me weren’t going to make the same mistake. It was going to be a secret for the kids, that was very nearly kept intact, until they discovered that their mother had put it on the calender….

…. we’re getting excited! Can’t wait to see the kids faces when it gets loud!!!

Adaline….

Doing a bit of tutoring in the Streaming Cafe a few weeks back and heard a CD they were playing, which blew me away….

So when I found out Vancouver based artist, Adaline, was coming to the cafe for a show, it was one we had to go to. If you want to see the show itself, head over to the cafe’s website and search the archive section. In the meantime, she has just released her first single.video. Enjoy….

Good, eh…. sure beats the crap you get fed on Pop Idol, that’s for sure. There’s talent out there, you just have to work a little harder to find it sometimes…..

The CD has been on repeat for the last few days now, with Holly belting out the song in the video.

The Tomat Talent Show ’09….

The Talent Show arrived today. A few weeks of practice, all came down to this morning….

The Talent Show Gig #2....

The Talent Show Gig #2....

A little nervous as she started, it was her first time singing on her own, in front of a crowd. It’s always been with the choir, or on the stage with the whole group. So today, she had to put her nerves aside…

The Talent Show Gig #1....

The level of concentration was intense, as you can tell!…. it was first time in front of a crowd for me, in nearly 5 years. I was hoping not to fluff it too, and hence put her off….

The Talent Show Gig #4....

In the end though, the practice paid off. As we played, I noticed a few teachers and parents in tears! Even the principle came over at the end and said he was “welling up with tears” as we played. And he’s a big guy!

The Talent Show Gig #5....

A “job well done!”, as they say. We wanted her to shine and she did. One mum came over at the end to say, “We didn’t know Holly had such a great voice. We do now!”

That’s it then, I’m off to get a new mixing desk this weekend. “The Star” has a bunch of her own songs she wants to record now and make her own CD. What Pandora’s Box have we opened, I wonder….
