It’s been a while since I wrote one of these, I hope you are all doing well.
I’m just recovering from St. Patrick’s Day and all the music that goes with it. It fell on a Sunday this year and that only means one thing for lots of Irish, a weekend session.
All over the weekend we played in different places over town. From Friday to Sunday we played a total of 15 hrs of music. So you can see why recovery is needed.
Today marks the first day of Spring and the Spring Equinox. The day and night are of equal length. Also, tonight has a full moon. I sit here and write this with the window cracked open and the wonderful smell that's coming in is uplifting and fresh, except to all you folks with allergies.
I feel it's time to get rid of the winter blues and get into the season of regrowth and new life. And with that, dust off a few old videos I have laying in my closet from last year.
In January 2019 I released a video for my version of ‘Black Is The Colour’ it racked up a total of nearly 12k views between Facebook and Youtube. Thank you to each and everyone who watched it and took the time to comment, share, like, subscribe and spread the word, it truly means a lot to me.
The new video I have is a live version of my song called ‘A Different Story’
It was shot on my friend's rooftop last summer in Kitsilano, Vancouver BC, Canada.
Special Thanks to Alice and Brad and Tuco for letting us take over the rooftop for the day.
Shot by my friends Eoin Kelly Smith and Jason Harynuk.
