Had a busy and exciting few days recording my songs with James Lindsay (bass), Huw Rees (key/hammond) and Max Popp at Gus Stirrat’s studio in Glasgow. Very excited we got through all he material. Will be mixing and mastering over the next few weeks.
-Some workshops coming up soon with Matilda Brown in Aberdeen playing and writing improvised songs with school children then performing at the end of the week. Also trying to write some new music at the moment to play with the organ trio and other projects.
-Will be recording the end of January with the Organ Trio with Huw Rees on Organ and Max Popp on drums.
-Also hoping to record with LRS(The League of Regrettable Superheroes) early this year. We’ve been getting a pretty mixed set together. Including some European folk music, Bluegrass, Tratitional tunes and Jazz.
-Be great to play with Lorna Reid at the Jazz bar on 24th and 26th August with John Allan on bass. Playing a lot of her original songs as well as a few standards. The show is called ‘All of Me’. The Organ trio is also playing at Whighams soon, doing a mixture of Grant Green, Wes Montgomery and other repertoire.
