Hello my lovely durps!
Here's the latest in the life of Jesse McCormack, musician extraordinaire (and shining example of modesty - please bear with me. I'm riding the happy wave at the moment):Update of Awesomeness #1
Recently I received...A PACKAGE FROM SCOTLAND. Containing one of the. Sexiest. Things. I've. Ever. Touched. Now because this is DeviantArt and I just used a variation of the word "sexy," no doubt you'll all be jumping to dirty conclusions. You sick bastards. Watch this video and all shall be revealed...no, not in that way! Get your fudging minds out of the gutter. www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuXTk2…Update of Awesomeness #2
Velvet Sledgehammer, the inter-generational folk trio of which I am a member, have just finished our tour of Tasmania, which was pretty darn epic, if I do say so myself. HEAPS of hard work was put in, but it all paid off in the end...just! We played at the Rosebery Festival in late February, a house concert in Wilmot in mid-March, a weekly music event in Ulverstone the weekend after that, followed immediately by the Westbury St Patrick's Day Festival the next day, and a concert in Hobart a week later. Those of you who don't live in Tasmania will probably have no idea where most of those places are, but there you go anyway (Google maps, if you're itching to find out). Have a listen to a song we recorded during rehearsals: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcb51g…Update of Awesomeness #3
After FOUR BLOODY YEARS of planning, dreaming and false starts, I have finally begun recording my debut album! WOOHOO!
So far, only two instruments of one track have been recorded. There's a long way to go yet, but it's a start. I'm very happy that this project I've had stewing in my brain for almost half a decade is finally beginning to come into to fruition. 2014 is going to be a very busy, very tiring, but very rewarding year, I think.
Until next time, my adorable durps
