So this is what I’ve been at the last few weeks, and will be at until the end of the year. I have to have two albums recorded, mixed and ready for mastering by the end of January 2014 (poetry/trippy/opera-y/rocky/freaky with Seamus Ruttledge and Michel Durham and folk/punk with Fia Rua), so I won’t be seeing much daylight between now and Christmas, as I want to have the mixes for both 95% done by New Years.
I’ll also be mixing the live album recorded at the Night For Manuela recently, for release in mid-December.
I’ve postponed the Grounds For Invasion EP launch until February, to let me focus on the above projects, and to hopefully let the EP build up a head of steam in the interim. This also means that Tracy and I will be able to try out the first batch of tracks from the in-progress Grounds For Invasion album in front of an audience. Exciting!
Just back from the wilds of West Cork, where I was recording the first 5 songs off Fia Rua’s next album in a gorgeous converted cottage on the side of a hill. Squeezed in a gig in Cork city while I was at it.
Also, just got the Grounds For Invasion CDs! They’re looking and sounding great, we’ll be giving them their big day out Upstairs in The Townhouse Bar, Galway on December 5th, in a three-way headline slot shared between GFI, Willow Sea and the incredible Agogic Logic. There’s going to be a fair bit of band intermingling on the night, should be class. €5 in on the night.
After a cracking night in Aras na nGael in Galway with Fia Rua and The Depravations last Saturday night, Willow Sea is playing at Citóg’s Hallowe’en bash tonight. There’s another great line-up at this, it should be a serious pile of fun.
On Hallowe’en, Willow Sea is making his Cork debut in The Slate, supporting Fia Rua, before spending the weekend in a cottage in Cork, recording Fia Rua’s next album. Jeez, like sure does suck sometimes.
So, here’s the first two tracks off my current project with the wonderful Tracy Friel.
The EP will be available from mid-November.
