Song For Alan Kurdi

I recently filmed a few demos of new songs in conjunction with Silk Mill Studios in Newcastle, UK and Biddulph Up In Arms - a great music series in Biddulph, UK.  Here's one called "Song For Alan Kurdi".



Interview with Cottonwood Records.

Recently I teamed up for the month of May with Cottonwood Records, a new southern Alberta film and sound venture by Coaldale, Alberta brothers Clayton and Joel Varjassey.  We filmed a video for a brand new song "AIN'T ENOUGH" (see that in the previous post), an interview with Clayton and a Cottonwood Record ProTip on Songwriting.  Here's the interview.

Songwriting is not a dark art

I assure you songwriting is not some mystical thing that touches only a few lucky souls.  You just gotta put pen to paper.  The more you do it, the easier it comes.  I mean take a look at this very natural, completely unstaged photo of myself writing a song.  Wow! I can't believe how non-orchestrated, spontaneous and uncontrived it is.  

Wanna take a crack at songwriting?  Then come to FAMI - The Foothills Acoustic Music Institute.  May long weekend in Bragg Creek.  Full details here.
