So you realize, i'm hoping, that the only purpose of this blog (besides being an outlet for my vitriolic temperament – and to display any occasional witticism that might disturb my otherwise somnolent brain) – the only purpose is just to prove to the world at large that i am, in fact, still alive and still performing music, my saving grace.
Truth is, i have a whole whack of new songs that i haven't been able to record because of lack of funds – oh, benefactor(trice), where are you? - and also because whatever funds i have managed to scrape together over the last year all went to get my heart's work – namely my show, Zootcase – up and out there in the world. All done, and happily too. Now i'm working on getting a CD “book” made of the narrative, and also a film. I must endeavour to get Zootcase out to the many people who have not yet seen it, or heard the songs. So work, work, work.
But back to the other new songs. Poor things, languishing in my 'tout doucement' file ('to do') – and hoping for their big break. But studios and musicians all cost, and i am – 'ow you say?' - tres broke. So if you have money, send it, please, and i will record them.
Meanwhile, reporting on the performance front, had a great night at the Old Mill Inn in Toronto a couple of weeks ago, with a sterling trio of musicians, and a room full of wonderful, appreciative music lovers. A very nice gig, thank you, to everyone who was there.
And now to create more similar opportunities....
