My most recent work, ‘Fall in Love with Today’ (recorded on Monday the 20th of November at STS Studios, Tuscania), is now available for streaming and to download on BandCamp. Please follow the link below to listen to the track and thanks for the support.
‘Fall in Love with Today’
(‘Fall in Love with Today’ deals lyrically with the concept of appreciating and loving the present moment and how our time is a true and wonderful gift we can give to those we love. The verses metaphorically approach the notion of living in a world that is replete with distractions and ‘attachments’ – which are ultimately ephemeral and of lesser importance than peace and love. In other words, it’s pure flower-power.)
‘This Life I Borrow’
The above link will take you to our BandCamp site where you can find my two new tracks recorded on the 17th of October, 2017 at STS Recording Studio, Tuscania, Italy: ‘This Life I Borrow’ and ‘Wrapped up in Furs’ (recorded and mixed by Marco Strada).
The artwork for this project (see below) was created by Veronica Palaggi.
On Monday, I’m heading back to the studio (STS, Tuscania, Lazio) to record a few (hopefully – if time permits) new tracks – ‘Wrapped up in Furs’, ‘You Seemed the World’ and ‘This Life I Borrow’.
For the moment, they will be all only acoustic guitar, ukulele and vocals – though we may add extra layers at a later date.
Our most recently recorded tracks, ‘Angel with a Nose-ring’ and ‘Coco’ were put on the air yesterday courtesy of Andy Sinclair at Exeter’s PhonicFM alternative music radio station.
Take a look at their site: http://phonic.fm/
More information to come, including links to the show (02/09/2017 – 12.00 – 14.00).
‘Angel with a Nose-ring’ and ‘Coco’ have now been uploaded onto our BandCamp site as a ‘single’ (double A-side, naturally) – that is to say, as a taster of what’s to come on out second studio recording.
On Sunday, we spent an afternoon at STS Recording Studio, Tuscania, Lazio – a delightful country-house immersed in the green of the surrounding fields. As previously mentioned, we recorded ‘Angel with a Nose-ring’ and ‘Coco’, and had a great time doing so. (The two tracks are to be included on our next EP album that we are planning to record this summer.) We hope that the product will be ready for the end of this week/the beginning of the next.
The shooting of our first video for one of our new tracks, with film-maker Daniela Wicke, was completed on Saturday. It was a lot of fun, and we don’t believe that the final product is going to be a majorly serious work of art… But art it will be. Thanks again to Daniela and also to Elisa, the wonderful fountain girl.
On Sunday the 28th of May, we are going to nearby Tuscania, Lazio, to record ‘Angel with a Nose-ring’ and another new track: a folk ballad under the title of ‘Coco’. More information to follow regarding both projects!
Today we finished filming the first sections of the video for a live performance of ‘Angel with a Nose-ring’, in the piano studio and in the streets of San Pellegrino, Viterbo. A couple more scenes to do next week and then back to the editing suite!
