I’ve had a bit more success with getting tracks out with the guys at Evolution Media Music. Blues and rock so far, with a bit of Rockabilly to come, and maybe some Americana in the near future, if I pass muster.
Have done a bit of guitar recently for the upcoming PS4 release of the new MediEvil game with composers Bob and Barn. I feel very happy and privileged to be able to play a small part in this.
I was very proud to be asked to do a bit of Django-esque guitar for a recording session with the incomparable Hal Ritson recently. Infact, it turned out to be guitar and bass. Hal’s writing and recording credits encompass Katy Perry, The Black Eyed Peas, The Sugarbabes, Dizzy Rascal, you name it. Thanks Mr R!
I’m excited to be writing some tracks for Evolution media Music at present. I hope that this will be the start of a great relationship.
I am happy to say that my “Acoustic Kitchen” album is now out with DeWolfe.
It was great fun making this one.
The Focus album Delicate Guitars has now been released, with half of its tracks written by me.
As a follow up to some guitar playing I did for Bob and Barn for their score for a short film, set in Paris, I’ve just had the opportunity to do some gypsy guitar for another scene. I hope that it makes the edit! More news to follow once the film is released…
I’m happy to report that my “Delicate” guitar tracks will soon be appearing on a Focus music release, as part of an album with the same name, it appears. I’ll post a link to this when one becomes available.
I’ve just finished a month of occasional recording sessions for the soundtrack for the upcoming “Hatton Garden Job” film, courtesy of Bob and Barn. Thanks chaps!
I’m pleased to say that my “Acoustic Kitchen” album is now scheduled for release with DeWolfe in the next month or two and that a couple of co-written tracks will also be out soon on a Universal album “Oddball Songs”. My thanks to Ben Somers for these latter ones.
The, Bob and Barn scored, Lennox Brothers film AmStarDam has been nominated for Best UK Feature Film and will be showing at this year’s Raindance Festival. There is a bit of guitar playing of mine in it somewhere.
My Swamp Sessions album is now up on the DeWolfe website, I am very happy to report.
I’m very happy to have been part of the recording sessions for the soundtrack to the upcoming Guerilla games release RIGS. It looks spectacular from the trailers I’ve seen and all of the guitar playing and most of the bass is me, along with a spot of saz and bouzouki.
Thanks to Bob and Barn for this!
15 tracks of swampy goodness are now set for release by DeWolfe. Since this album’s inception, at the end of last year, I’ve acquired a cigar box guitar, got some harmonica playing down and built and recorded a washtub bass. The final album features about 16 different instruments, along with miscellaneous percussion, and I’m proud to say, is 100% me.
It looks as though the tracks from my “Delicate Guitar” ep are going to be released by Focus Music later on in the year, I am happy to report. I’m quite pleased with these tunes, now that I listen back to them. Some time infront of Wavelab doing edits is now called for…
I’m making progress with an album of “swamp” music, destined for DeWolfe, at present. A page dedicated to the album is here and I hope to have my first major draft of tunes completed in a week or so. I’ve built a washtub bass and got myself a cigar box guitar and these tunes are turning out to be raw and rootsy.
I’m putting in some studio time with film and T.V. composers Bob and Barn at the moment, working on an episode of “Dispatches”, which is to air in the next few weeks, and on a short film, shot in Paris. It’s good to be back infront of the Neumann, in their delightfully retro-carpeted studio.
I’ve just started working on an album of acoustic Americana for DeWolfe. It’s going to feature acoustic guitars of various shades, banjos, dobro, resophonic guitar, mandolin, harmonica, cigar box guitar and maybe some appalachian dulcimer and banjo-lele. Something will appear in the “current projects” once I’ve got a few tracks recorded.
I’ve finally got round to starting my long planned gypsy jazz project. I’m going to be recording a selection of tracks that typify the most important tunes and styles in the gypsy jazz repertoire. There will be swing tunes or course, but also later more bop tracks, a waltz or two and perhaps something along the lines of one of Django’s solo guitar improvisations. I’m going for a fairly vintage sound and I might do some real old school mixes, but I’ve also got a couple of ideas for electro swing remixes of some of these tracks.
Some real progress is being made with this album now, and we should be pitching it to potential publishers in a couple of weeks’ time.
I’ve got about half an album’s worth of tracks for this project now. Time to look for a publisher….
