So here’s a recent shot of me playing some keys in The Bare Knuckle Blues Band. I’m really enjoying the band for a variety of reasons, not least because we have now begun to compose original songs. Something I’ve done quite a lot of with other bands and at certain periods of my life.
It’s a great feeling hearing back your own original work. The most recent compositions are taking shape and the plan is to record them around August/September time, so watch this space.
I’m a guitarist by trade, so to speak, having spent years gigging in various band, though my first ever instrument and musical experiences was on piano and keyboards. In recent months I’ve returned to playing keyboards in the Bare Knuckle Blues Band and I’m really loving it.
Here’s our first recording that we’ve called “Round 1″, all part of linking into the brand name. Have a listen and let me know what you think of it in the comments?
Here is a recent picture of yours truly taken at a recent Bare Knuckle Blues Band gig. It’s quite a stunning image taken by the wonderful Bjorn Thomassen.
I like the image as I think it captures my emotion quite well, you know full on in the moment, verging on ecstasy… well maybe not that far. Someone once said if you enjoy music more than sex it is time to stop.. hmm or was that me?
Anyway, captions welcome, let’s have a bit of fun.
I’ve a couple back to back gigs this Easter weekend with the Bare Knuckle Blues Band. Should be a blast for sure, as we are fresh out of the studio having recorded 4 cover songs, as a prelude, and studio practice to an album (yet to be written). I’m excited by the prospect of writing songs again it has been a while, but once begun I find they ideas tend to flow pretty quickly.
Happy holidays to you.
Here’s a recent pic of me with the Bare Knuckle Blues Band avin’ in large!
I’ll have more of these coming soon, but thought you might enjoy seeing yours truly in this photo shoot for The Bare Knuckle Blues Bland. I’ll be honest with you I did find the whole thing slightly amusing and had a bad case of the giggles for a while. It’s so funny being told to “pose” this way and that way, which often feels uncomfortable, for me, anyway. However, the photographer Bjorn was so professional in this shoot, so hat tip to him.
What do you think of the shot?
