Wouldn’t it be great if holidays could last forever….?
I just got back from an amazing surf trip to Barbados and figured that if I wrote some songs about it, I could capture the spirit of the ocean. And when I’d finished writing them, I just couldn’t wait to get into the studio and record them!
So this Sunday (20th March) I’ll be at Unit 2 Studios in Acton recording three tracks in one day (!) with the fantastic Adie Hardy. David Ryder Prangley and Kamil Krol will be joining me on bass and drums, and I’ll be on keys and doubtless blowing a few things too….
Not only that, we’re going to be filming as we go. THEN we’re going to combine the studio grime with some awesome footage from Jay Garrett at Ride the Tide surf school, who is not only a great teacher but a great surfer too.
And because nothing focuses the mind like a deadline, the EP and video will be OUT online on the 28th March!
It’s a tight schedule but life is short and holidays don’t last forever…. so I wanna take you where the waves are breaking right now!
Check out the Facebook event here for updates on how we are getting on in the studio….
love , peace and WAVES
2015 may nearly be over….but next Tuesday night Bordello Rose will be taking over the Underworld for a guerrilla music vid shoot! The Underworld is one of our favourite venues- we’ve done a lot of great support slots there and it’ll be fantastic to have some video evidence of all the madness.
We’re then going to be supporting the lead singer from the amazing Ataris with a full band acoustic performance. I’m just recovering from a nasty bout of tonsillitis so it may be a touch on the husky side (for once!).
I’m also booking gigs for 2016 with one confirmed and lots more to come… will be posting here when I have all the details. Last but not least….here’s to addressing the Xmas present situation. Hope yours are more organised than mine right now!
Hi all! I’m super excited to finally have my own website after owning the web hosting for around three years…. thanks Erik for your technical wizardry in installing WordPress! It’s been a busy few months with Bordello Rose, but we got there in the end….
You can listen to my new song Sloth here – accompanied by some footage of Marseille harbour I took on a little escape from London. I wrote this a few years ago while dreaming of relaxing on a beach far away from it all. Hopefully it will help you fend off the winter blues too!
I’ll have more news about solo gigs up soon. In the meantime I hope you can join Dave and I this Saturday in Finsbury Park! It’s a lovely little venue and should be a great night. xx
