There’s a few things I need to cover in my blog:
Firstly, my next video will be a live version of “Paranoia Park” off of “Mosaic Melodies”, following up “Beaded Eyes” (link below). Working with Ben, Oli and James was awesome and the videos look great. The third video in the session, which is staying in storage for a while, will be Astronomy; it includes a neat little harmonica part. Some of you may of noticed the sessions are Skylark Records labelled, this is the label I will be releasing my album on.
A note on the album; originally my plan was to release the album on the 20th of June. For many reasons, it has been decided it is best to release the LP on the 1st of August. This gives me plenty of time to sort out PRS licensing, promotion etc and just generally eases a lot of pressures. As far as the physical album itself goes, the graphics are near enough complete and then we are ready to print.
On the first of August, if any of you are in Camden (London) I will actually be gigging in front of a crowd of around 1000 people and flogging my CD’s, tis quite a scary thought but I’m also properly excited. Gigs have been spares recently, competing with the World Cup has not been easy. Performing with a new act “Field Sparrow” was a personal delight and I hope to gig with them again soon (link to their music below).
My website is also coming along greatly, if you haven’t already checked it out, you can download “Beaded Eyes” for free there @ chrisrealemusic.com.
Other than the above, all I can say is keep your eyes and ears open for updates, music, gigs & videos. And keep your fingers crossed for my release on the 1st. I need all the support I can get!
