Music Review of 2022!
I’m pleased to say 2022 has been a productive year for me, musically.
I’ve released a (mostly jazz-funk/jazz-rock) 20 track album (https://album.link/hkcbtwcxrpzxm) , an orchestral three 3-track EP (https://album.link/s/6oEGWqDHrmCIO7KeDQtiPl) , a mixed genre 3-track EP https://album.link/s/660tEmqFh3pENpMIGYsHzh and 4 singles.
I produced my first multi-window video for the Big Band piece included on one of the EPs, featuring some of the finest musicians in the UK & US (Bird Of South - Big Band Composition - YouTube ). Oh, and the video for the Stevie Wonder tribute single I released just before Christmas last year, also featuring some (indeed some of the same!) wonderful musicians. Along with a cameo appearance from yours truly… I Wonder - my tribute to the great Stevie Wonder - YouTube
That’s 33 tracks and over 2h 12mins of music. Of course artistic endeavours are not a numbers game! but at least it feels like I’ve been productive.
I went to Prague to record 3 pieces with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, which was an absolute highlight. You can see the results here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9otnNKbc6No&list=PLHTyKghXnzN5F3UInAN0eEp87sz3zIcV3
You can find all the above, and more, on the following playlists:
So, despite the world outside sometimes seeming like it’s falling apart ever more… I will continue to try to create a tiny space of beauty and joy with my music, and invite any and everyone who is so inclined to join me for moments of escape into a better world 😉
Wishing you all a peaceful and happy new year.
