I’m happy to say that my debut record is complete! 13 months, 4 studios, 7 guitars, 30+ guitar pedals and 1 blown amplifier…. it was an awesome experience and I’m happy to be able to share the music with you all very soon. To kick things off, I’d like to invite you to join the Electric Band and me as we celebrate the release of our debut album, Suites, on Saturday January 14th, 2012 at The Rex Hotel (194 Queen Street West in Toronto). The show will start at 9:30pm and will feature my friends and band mates Roger Travassos (drums), Steve Zsirai (bass – it’s his birthday that night, too!), along with some very special guests.
The album features two Suites of music, the Elektra Suite and the Starla Suite. All of the songs are original compositions. The record will be available for purchase directly through my website beginning Tues, Jan 17th. It will be offered in two formats: high-quality digital download (320kbp MP3) and physical CD. The CDs will be available worldwide and will be shipped from Toronto. I will also be offering a number of limited edition packages featuring the album + autographed poster, signature guitar pick, and some other really cool things – stay tuned for details!
As lead in to the album release, I will be posting a Free Track Download of the first song, ‘Elektra‘, on January 2nd. It will be available for download directly from my website. I wrote this song in January 2010 on a long flight to Europe. It’s an homage to one of by biggest influences: Jimmy Page.
Looking forward to the 14th – hope you can check it out!
