Recording Updates & Local Shows04/02/2017
Things are moving on with the new album and I have a couple of local shows to showcase the new songs here in Worcester. The first on Thursday 2nd March, a solo show at THE PLOUGH closely followed by a full band show on Sat 11th March at The Mars Bar. Do come along if you can, a couple of posters here with details. THE MARS BAR tickets are best bought early to save a few quid but you can also pay on the night, heres the ticket link. Hope to see some of you there.
The WR3 recording continues here at the home studio, the bass and drums are now all present and correct after the recent two day session at Whitby Studios Ellesmere Port with Liverpool musicians Bobby Kewley [bass] and Paul Tsanos [drums] and Engineer Ian Lewis- Paul and Bobby are long standing VP collaborators, they also played on SILVER MEADOWS, which has just picked up a rather splendid review in SLAP MAGAZINE below.
David Swan Riverman05/01/2017
I just added another demo to the WR3 collection, ‘David Swan- Riverman’ [track 9]. The song was inspired by a chance encounter with a local ornathologist on the banks of the River Severn here in Worcester…hope you like it, sharing and comments welcomed.
Just confirmed a local gig here at The Plough in Worcester, its a very small space in a lovely old pub, heres the poster, pop the date in the diary do…VPx
‘The Singing Schoolteacher’ is a little tribute to Clifford T Ward, the English Teacher turned pop star who taught at North Bromsgrove High School in the early 1970s. Here’s an after the rehearsal home version, the song will feature on the forthcoming album WR3, all the songs set in or against a backdrop of the midlands, inspired by my return to these parts…hope you enjoy do feel free to share.
