Am excited to share this gig on 2/16 at Camellia Lounge with innovative guitar stylist Brooks Robertson, of whom Grammy winning guitarist Lee Ritenour said, "I was completely knocked out with the acoustic guitar virtuosity of Brooks Robertson!" You will be too! If you love creatively inspired acoustic guitar, this event will be mythic!
Ryan and I were invited to audition to be among a select few PDX musicians representing the music of Portland for the 12 million annual visitors to PDX. Will find out if we made the cut, next week. They only choose about 20 musicians overall.
Had a great time at Big Red Studios getting 5 solo guitar and 5 singer/songwriter cuts down. In the playlist they alternated between the two forms. Will be soon taking the raw tracks to another studio to have my upright bassist Ryan Babbachuck, and my woodwind/horn player Mitch Imori create the trio version of these same songs.
Big Red Studios outside Portland, OR is run by Billy Oskay, former lead violinist with the Windham Hill, multi-gold record group Nightnoise, a popular celtic jazz fusion band of the 90's. Billy really gives his love to getting a rich acoustic sound and I couldn't be happier with the results.
