...and what more meaningful time to release this romantic, nostalgic tale of past romance intertwined with a young budding romance - than Valentines' Day? Stay tuned for the premiere on all my socials, AND right here - but while you're here, click the button to listen/ purchase, and enjoy the trailer for "Reminiscing" just below that!
First off, thank you very much for visiting my website and for your interest in my my music. As you might guess, this year's plans for my music and ONE FINE MORNING album release didn't exactly GO according to plan! Quite the contrary. But some good came out of 2020...mostly in the last few months when I was able to get my bearings again. For starters, I was able to put together a "Behind the Scenes" video (below) for our version of Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic". All footage I pulled together here is from my time in studio and from a couple of gigs we did to promote the album, all taken before COVID 19 brought everything to a screeching halt! Hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did making it!
I'm also gearing up for the release of another (professional) video on Valentines' Day (Sunday Feb 14th) for guitar/vocal duet featuring my take on Little River Band's "Reminiscing". It ended up being a family affair because of Covid restrictions and I'm absolutely thrilled with it AND...
...when it doesn't rain it pours. That same day happens to be Mississauga's former Mayor, Hazel McCallion's 100th birthday! I have been asked to perform a surprise jazz tune along with several other Mississauga musicians on a tribute video on Hurricane Hazel's storied career and life - to be streamed the evening of Feb 14th! Stay tuned for more FB & Instagram postings on both of these video events!
I'm also planning a few at home performances once I get myself set up properly for at home streaming and/or video recordings. My son Joe (an excellent jazz guitarist) is my bubble here so we have a few tunes we are planning to do...
So for now, it is ALL about ONLINE, folks. I look forward to the day when I can book a live performance once again in a restaurant, club, concert venue or legion hall (with the Mississauga Big Band!). Hope that day comes SOON!! Meantime, enjoy my maritime themed "Into The Mystic" below and hope you check in with me again upon the release of "Reminiscing" and Hazel's 100th Birthday Celebration next month!
Take good care of yourselves...lets pray 2021 brings us all what was so lacking in 2020 ... and more!
