Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2016. I hope it started in a positive fashion. I’ve got plenty of exciting gigs lined up, plus releases from Emanata and Meraki. Here are a couple of recent goodies from Meraki to kick start the year.

STOLEN – VIOLIN CASE WITH ELECTRIC VIOLIN AND 2 BOWS

At roughly 21:45 yesterday evening (17/08/13), whilst setting up to play at Hackney WickED Arts Festival with Polaroid 85, my violin case (with my electric violin and my two bows inside) was stolen from behind me – on stage. We did not play the set. If anyone sees or hears of a violin available (it has Polaroid 85 stickers and Wonderland Festival stickers on it, model Carlo Giordano Silenzia EV-201, imitation wood – in a black Gewa violin formed case with two bows inside) please let me know. 07545568677 Please share this on facebook, twitter, etc.

This sort of thing shouldn’t be easy to get away with. Please help us catch this petty thief. The picture below is a stock image of the instrument stolen.

East meets West

I had the great privilege this afternoon of jamming with pianist Rekesh Chauhan and percussionist Alok Verma. These guys are extremely talented and are recognised as such by many seriously respected musicians. I’m very excited about the future of this project. We’ll be bringing you ear candy very soon!

Hymn for Him

Here’s a Submotion Orchestra cover (excellent band – check out their dĂ©but album). This is a wonderful tune featuring beautiful strings on the original. I made my best attempt at sub-bass on a violin – you’ll need more than your laptop speakers to hear it! I’m away from real-life for the next four weeks, so this is my last offering for awhile. Sayonara!
