Failure is an option..

Hope this message finds you well. In the immortal words of James Brown, ‘Whoa, I feel good…!’. Why, because I started clearing out my garage today listening to some demos of mine from the early nineties! I could hear the terrible hair style! At some point I may let you hear them….

Anyway, just a quick note to say I have another blog entry on the Roland Corp Australia blog site. In this one, I share my biggest failure success story!

Ooh, and check out the Michael Jackson song story if you haven’t already. You can read it here:

Also, I want to bring your attention to two upcoming gigs that are going to be epic! They are:

– Geoffrey Williams: Love songs and groove! at The Main Bar, Ballarat on Saturday May 24th. Anna Bilbrough supporting
– The Resignators, Ballarat Ska Union & Geoffrey Williams at The Courthouse Theatre, Ballarat, June 7th. This gig will be streamed live via Playfi. You can book your tickets now at this link:

If you’re physically in da area, drop by, say hi and stay for a while to soak in some smoothin’ and groovin’! I would love to see you there!

OK, as Porky Pig would say, that’s all folks,

Salut maintenant!

Short Song on the Fly – Green Island by the Sea

Another in the ‘Short Song on the Fly’ series. This idea is from Karen, thank you! Click here to watch it. The words are:

Green Island by the sea,

so warm and calm,

just the place to be with you’.

This experiment continues… Enjoy!

Short Song on the Fly!

How would you like your idea made into a short song? Well, this is the basis for my latest idea of spontaneous creative stimulation (not easy to say first thing in the morning!!).

The experiment is called ‘Short Song on the Fly’ and the premise is this:

  • I ask you to give me an idea e.g. a dream you had, a place of significance to you and why, a favourite line from a book or film (not to famous!), or a favourite saying
  • I create a short piece from your idea using my Digitech Jamman loop pedal
  • I record myself creating it and put it up on YouTube for you (& the world) to see my musical interpretation of your idea

I’m planning to do one every two weeks. If you’re game, email me with your idea and we’ll go from there! Click here to see what I’m talking about.

New album ‘Yes Is The Answer’ is on the way!

New material, applauded live and now recorded… acoustic, human…robots to a minimum! It’s been a while but the time is now. Click here to listen.

I’ve been hard at work applying for a grant to release the album, writing a business plan, lots of head work! But from much help from Young Werther, the process was eased.

What’s in the album? Well, taste the aperitif and you’ll get a good idea of the main course!

And when will the main course arrive, waiter? Well, (in a West Indian accent) the cook is busy chopping, slicing and putting on the finishing touches; putting in some blues with his own homemade Caribbean sauce to spice up the proceedings! Lol! In answer to your question, probably the second half of the year but don’t quote me!

Oh, and if you’re wondering what the question was, well, Yes is definitely the answer!
