Summer is here in Vancity!…my exploits?…Hmm…Still plugging away with a dedicated bunch of writers on the “The Artists Way”.This book is helping us all get past our creative blocks and become more creative writers….Not for the faint of heart but well worth it!
Writing.Yup doing that…A song came out of me this week about a Alcoholic with cancer?…A fun summer time song you say….Well thats what came out,probably due to working on the artist way hmmm….it wont be played on the radio but may make an album.
Did some transatlantic writing via skype with my friend in England Mathew Pownall and regular writing partner,the awesome Lucy Leblanc.A sweet Rockabilly flavoured tune!
Saturday night I was asked to help host the jam at the Loft in Cloverdale.We had a blast and met a awesome country picker/fiddle player.I played bass for their set to a bunch of old-time fiddle tunes!
Sunday was “All Good”… My buddy Jojo Mason released his single “All Good” written by My friend Dan Swinimer and Canadian Country Star Tim Hicks.The show was at the Roxy in Vancouver and Jojo did not disappoint.This guy is a rising star and it is fun to watch.Jojo is full of personality and you aint been hugged till you had a Jojo Hug!…Highlight of the night was JRFM was at the show and debuted the song live at the club! Watching Jojo's face as his song was played on the radio for the first time was priceless!! Danny and Jojo left at 6 AM for a radio tour the next day.Work it boys!….Request this tune on your local country station!
I am writing this from the Heritage Grill in New West as I am waiting to play a set…..not sure what I will play…any requests?
