Some of my guitar playing has been featuring in the “One Show” recently. Thanks to Bob and Barn for this, as for so many other things 🙂
I’ve been doing some double bass sessions for the score for this upcoming comedy, based on a hugely successful stage show.
Some atmospheric Americana for this Lightsong album. 4 of these are mine including “Midwest Vista” and “Endless Road”
I built my own outboard spring reverb and broke out the jazzmaster and mosrite guitars for this album out with MOTUS music.
A one-off remake of Friday Night Live aired on CH4 recently. By virture of playing the guitar and bass on the theme tune I got to go down to the recording and hang out in the green room afterwards, with some of the faces that I watched in the original FNL in my teens.. .
A couple more on a different album, a bit more straight ahead rocking out this time…“Gasoline” and “Danger Zone” are mine.
“Powerful, searing desert rock where modern hard rock guitars and raucous drums pack a cool, dark-edged punch. Wild, tough, heavy and just a little bit deranged”. I’ve got some tracks on this Evolution Media Music album.
I’m quite proud of this one, and I think that it’s pretty authentic. Some genuine 90’s guitars, 90’s valve guitar amps, 90’s outboard and a healthy dose of ssl outboard bus compression went into these tracks which also aren’t religously to a click. I wanted a real organic feel. Oh yes, and I was listening to these bands and playing guitar in the 90s so it’s a big part of my musical upbringing. 90’s grunge can be found here.
An album of ska/punk tracks is now out with MOTUS music. I had real fun doing this one and frankly, it helped that I used to play in a ska band.
Chicken pickin’ tele, dobro, banjo, mandolin. All can be found on tracks from this MOTUS album, American Country. My favourite is “chicken on the porch”.
I’m really pleased to hear some of my guitar playing on the first section of “Rhythm is Wild” – coming up on the next Young Punx album. I played some upright bass on the session too.
I’ve got a few tracks out on this album with Brilliant Music- Pop Punk.
“First Love”, “Meet Me At the Diner”, “Prom Punk”, “This is the Day”, “In a Spin”,”Kiss Punch”. I’m quite proud of how these tracks sit in this album- track no. 1 is great for example (not mine) and I think that these hold their own.
Some more tracks out with MOTUS on their “Evolution of Punk” album, variously Green Day/Sum 41-esque, then somewhat Ramones and Sex Pistols. I like “Contagion” on this album, but mine are also “Delinquent”, Peckham Punk” and “Fistful of Attitude”. Not easy listening then…
A couple of “rock soul” tracks are out with Wrong Planet. “Fighting for a Good Time” and “Bay City Soul” are mine on this.
I’ve been doing some tracking for some Americana tracks- tele, dobro, banjo.
My compositions are starting to appear in the MOTUS library. A couple of tracks in the “Indie Garage Blues” album for example- “Saturday Swagger” and “Fighting Through a Feeling”.
I’ve had some more tracks with MOTUS music signed off recently. Punk, 60’s soul and 70’s rock- I’ve variously had my Sex Pistols, Motown and Eagles/Richie Blackmore heads on.
I have a new album out with Universal, on their True Stories label. “Bright Guitar Builds“
I’ve just started doing some tracks for a new MCPS library Motus Music, I am happy and excited to report. Initial tracks are “indie blues rock” and I’ve managed to find a use for my hand built, NOS 70’s germanium transistor fuzz face on one of them. It sounded great!
