Levitation

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

This is a demo-version of one of the songs on the upcoming album. Used my trusty Guild with a Fishman Rare Earth pickup through an old Fender amp for the spacey sound. Lyrics posted below!

Got this fine Martin guitar in late August and it’s on a lot of the songs recorded since. Great quality, tone and vibe!

Levitation

Here are the lyrics to one of the songs that will be on the upcoming album. Music to be posted soon…

Levitation

Tell me who you are, I’ll tell you what I see
A leaf in the storm, torn from the tree
The skin on your back, the rock of ages cracked
The strangers in the street, their eyes that never meet

Levitation
Strange and wonderful things
Ignite the dawn

The masters and the slaves, the soldiers in their graves
The wolves at your door, this hunger in us all
What the northwind says, when it whispers of the dead
The elemental rage, the lion walks the cage

Levitation
Strange and wonderful things
Ignite the dawn

The children in the yard, each will play their card
The old man in his room, between the bride and her groom
You get pulled into the ground, get seduced by the sound
Of the ordinary lives, of the husbands and the wives

Levitation
Strange and wonderful things
Ignite the dawn

Sign of life

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Didn’t actually disappear off the face of the earth… But 11 months ago yours truly took on the very serious business of fatherhood – a most wonderful little girl. A strong-willed & very high-maintenance young lady too, though, already showing a burning interest in (brutally beating on!) dad’s guitars.

Been keeping musically busy too, writing, rehearsing and recording tracks for a new album that hopefully should be out this year. Got a couple more to do before selecting the songs that will go on the album (just tracked two brand new ones the other night).

Lastly, 2011 should see a return to increased live-activity on my part.
