The days have been busy and FULL OF MUSIC
Hi Folks again, here we are with my blog, and also my first VLOG for the headphones on microphone in series of vlog/blogs, so will include the link to the youtube channel HERE!!!
So what’s been happening in these extremely busy last few weeks?
so as previously discussed WAKE UP LEO have now played the gig at the Amersham Arms, you can check out our video of Nowhere to go HERE! The show was great fun, we had a nice little crowd who again responded to our songs amazingly. The whole band are very excited to be playing our upcoming festivals in the next few months, it looks like the band is really making some great headway, and we have some new music on its way as well. Will post some sneak previews as and when I can.
I have also had a couple of new videos come out: Secret love song by GRAND PA and also, probably my favourite piece of production of recent times: DIAMONDS AND PEARLS by the amazing TOM ROVERY. This song i have known about for a while and Tom asked me to do my own take on this piece he and Redwood Falls originally wrote, and safe to say its been very well received.
For this song I really put my new soft synth through its paces. I recently bought the amazing OMNISPHERE, check out a demo of its sounds HERE. Honestly the ambient sounds on this are amazing, and also some very useful EDM presets as well, can’t wait to use this further.
In the near future THE SALVADOR DARLINGS will be having their first debut show at THE ISLINGTON, so we are very excited for that (CLICK FOR DETAILS). We’ve had some great rehearsals and now is the time for us to get into the live scene.
ERIMS FUN FACT
Generally I wouldn’t make this music related, but I have recently discovered that there are actually mice that cost over 13,000 US DOLLARS. What the actual hell, I mean I know microphones can get expensive, but seriously!?!?!?!?! I mean I have some mics that cost a few hundred, such as my blue reactor. I know its a great mic, maybe not the best, but still turns in a great performance. What more do you get for the extra 12,000 dollars?

SONG OF THE BLOG
The song of the blog for this episode/ series or whatever you call it has to go to PAULO NUTINIS IRON SKY. It is rare I hear a song convey so much emotion and power so well. Not normally into his stuff, I think this song is just exceptional, and also the sampled Charlie Chaplin Quote, just makes this song unbelievable. Considering what is happening in the world at this time, I feel this song is very relevant. PAULO NUTINI IRON SKY, check it out HERE!!!!
This episodes moments, has to be almost in tribute to the late great Johan Cruyff. One of the true greats, and someone I try to emulate when i play football, however instead of looking elegant and stylish, i normally end up on the floor. Last weeks game in fact, i’m pretty sure I spent more time on the floor than I did on my feet. Might have looked something like THIS!!!!!
Thats all for this week folks, I leave you with a fond farewell, and thank-you for your time reading this and watching my videos. All the best :D xoxox
This blogs moment has to be when i was playing football, i think i spent more time on the floor than i did actually playing, every shot would go wide or i would just fall over. so basically like this
