New Track on Soundcloud

Long live the 80s

Hi Folks

You may have worked out that I am on holidays and have all the time in the world to post interesting little snippets on my blog. I really enjoyed the Kyoto post and am planning another trip to Japan this year. As I settle on my itinerary, I'll do some more travel posts as the Kyoto post has proved to be very popular.

This post has nothing to do with travel. The photograph is a promo shot from the late 80s - a band I was in for a couple of years. I used to play brass so I'll leave it to you to work out who is who. I went a bit crazy with Logic pro after christmas and have come up with a few compositions that have been downloaded all over the world. The christmas songs were vey popular and I felt good about spreading a certain amount of goodwill by offering them for free. 

I have decided for the time being to finish off some little projects I had in mind when I was a music student many moons ago. I have already promoted Pirates and have come up with another track that I envision being used as a theme for some kind of drama or other video. It's got some electronic brass in it which is why I used the photo above - you know... 'cause I used to play brass. Its called Remember ans is downloadable although I have licensed it to Getty Images on a non exclusive basis through Soundcloud if any one is interested in using it commercially. I have provided a link on the right if you want a quick listen.

I have picked up the trumpet recently and intend to use it for some future projects so keep an eye out if you like trumpet ballads.

Thats all for now
