I’ve been busy writing new songs and recording new material. I love the production and engineering aspect of making music. So I’ve been studying up, buying and using new plugins and getting better on the instruments. It’s been over a year since the last CD was released and the band and I have been working on learning enough cover material to have a good four sets of music. Our mix of covers to originals is about 50/50 and I’m always learning and adding more covers and writing new material. I learned several Janis Joplin songs last year and I find that when I’m delving into an artist, that I pickup stylistic gems that end up getting incorporated into my own new songs. I’m currently in my Linda Ronstadt phase and learning a bunch of her tunes. Though it was written by Little Feat, Linda’s version of Willin is one of my favorite songs at the moment. I just love singing that song.
I’ll be back at the Fox and Goose this Saturday my band The 8-Tracks. Blame the Bishop and Stephen Ruderman will be joining us on the bill. Come out and have a pint and a night of great music! 9:00 PM, 5 Dollar cover.
Keep checking back, I’ll have some new music out soon!
