6 Songs in 6 Days #6

Nothing more to say, really. This is the last song we managed to record on that hot September night many years ago. This is perhaps one of my favourite songs from the set. Such a wistful feel to it. It’s called Waiting for June. Sort of silly to share it at the end of August, but there you go.

I hope you have enjoyed this little trip down memory lane. If you liked anything, fell free to copy it, share it, listen to it. I’m not the RIAA!

6 Songs in 6 Days #5

Welcome once again to another installment of 6 songs, we are getting closer to the end of the list. This song is truncated, we didn’t get the whole thing recorded, but I will include it, so this doesn’t become 5 songs in 6 days all of a sudden.

Ladies and gentlemen, Said and Done!

6 Songs in 6 Days #4

Got a little off track while on vacation at a cottage. But here we go with another song!

This one is called Smaller all the Time. I think it was written be Kathleen. Enjoy!

6 Songs in 6 Days #3

I never said they would be 6 consecutive days!

So here is song number three, this is a rocking tune written by Kathleen Reichelt, who is also an accomplished playwright.  She is also a co-founder of The Garage Collective, part of a group  of artists who turned a typical downtown Toronto garage backing out onto an alley into an independent art space for installation, performance and play. It is very cool, as is this rocking good song from that sweaty September night many years ago. This was our final song of the night, and we blew a speaker playing it. We were a little upset that we did not come in at the same time for the Coda, after nailing it time after time in practise. Oh well. I hope you enjoy it.

6 Songs in 6 Day #2

Here is the second song for 6 Songs in 6 Days. This one is called Days Away, and it was written by the multi-talented Kim Collins, who now designs and makes her own jewellery! So if you are looking for something special, check out her site.

This song has some of my favourite bass playing. Not that I was great at it or anything, but I had a lot of fun with what I did here. Some nice melodic touches, I think. I hope you enjoy it.

6 Songs in 6 Days #1

Hey people,

So some of you might know that once upon a time I was in a band. I played bass for a rock and roll combo called Swimmin’, and while we never had the same sort of success that say, U2 had, it was still a great experience.

When my brother-in-law Sean was making the podiobook of White Trash Land for me, he used one of the songs as the bed music.  Recently I had a request from a fan (I have some of those, really!) who wanted to know where he could get it.

Well, here it is.

The track was recorded live at the Cameraon House, one sweaty September day almost 8 years ago now. Time has passed, and the recording was not perfect, but if you are interested you can listen to a track a day over the next 6 days. I hope you enjoy.
