I'm gradually going back to my roots of playing my guitar again. The looper helped me develop some singing skills, which I hope to put to good use.
I've been working with the looper to find harmonies for new songs. I've been playing less guitar because a combination of over-practice, wood-splitting, and Karate have been causing some pain; I want all to heal correctly. My love is composing.
I've been occasionally running open mikes at "The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts" organization in Middletown, CT, and at "Perk on Main," in Durham, CT, where I'll be tonight from 6:30 - 8pm.
1-13-2012 I've been polishing up the edges on about 30 new songs or so. We'll see where the pieces fall; the best dozen songs or so will go on album 4, which will probably be predominantly instrumentals.
The Alan Bradley Group just finished putting together the 3rd album. "FILABU." (Falling in Love and Breaking Up) . I posted one instrumental track from it, "Jubilant Heart," the last song on the list. Album 3: 1) Can’t Get You Out of My Mind." Vocals: A. Bradley 2) Descending Boogie" w/ Melissa Spencer & Chris Lennox 3) That’s What You Said" Vocals: A.
