MUSIC NEWS: Jess Sutherland Live EP.

So y’all probably know about Jess Sutherland by now. She’s the singer with the impossibly beautiful voice I’ve been making music with and posting all those YouTube videos. After the wonderful reaction to all those videos, I figured it was a good time to get some music out and into people’s iPods.

The EP consists of 7 live performances, most of which are also on YouTube. It’s the first non Winter Of ’82 release on Dancing About Architecture, which is rather exciting too.

Another thing worth mentioning; our intention was to make this a free download. It’s available via Bandcamp as a Pay-What-You-Want download… and people are buying it. Like, paying real money for it. That, to me, is incredible. The fact that people are happy to put their hands in their PayPal pockets to support our work is genuinely humbling. For serious.

Nevertheless, I’d really like you to get it, free or otherwise. Jess and I have a lot of fun making these things, and we do work very hard. We’ve got lots planned too; some magical tracks in the can, a full length studio album is on the way, and Jess will be appearing on some Winter Of ’82 stuff very soon. ‘Citing times, indeed.

Anyway, here it is. Please listen, and download if you dig it!

Live! Piano! Coming soon! (+ Bless This House Piano Video)

RIGHT. Finally, I am in possession of a stage piano that I can take out live. Yay!

My current fully weighted, hammer action stage piano is definitely NOT portable for a spoonie, and there’s no money for a crew just yet… I’ve invested in a very lightweight Yamaha Piaggero; quite a neat bit of kit it is too.

This means that stuff like this finally becomes a regular part of the set, which is super exciting…

This was recorded during a quick acoustic session a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy!
