‘Where would I be now’ released + other announcements.

By April 15, 2024No Comments

‘Where would I be now’ is a result of a confluence of events and marks a new sound for the band. In 2020 Kathryn invited Max Evans to rehearse, play and record in studio with Blue Dirt Girl and his style of guitar playing stuck in her head. Next Kathryn gathered bits and pieces of collected guitar ideas using harmonics and strong lead guitar lines. She wanted to experiment with the guitar expressing her song ideas rather than traditional lyric structured songs. She and Albert also started a jam style of rehearsing to meld Kathryn’s disparate guitar ideas and allow Albert to find a bass part.

The result was a new band sound with both  ‘Where would i be now’ and ‘Song of the Crawdad’ off our new album ‘No street signs No straight lines’

What a brilliant time Kathryn, Albert and Dan had in studio with: Albert and Kathryn’s song structure with strong guitar and bass ideas and minimal lyrics, Dan listening to Kathryn’s sonic ideas and using the SEW WHAT app, playing other instruments, and working his magic as our recording engineer.

 

‘Where would i be now’ review:

Octopus Music London compadre Portland based indie musician, Stephen Williams, had this to say about ‘Where would I be now’

“’Where would I be now’ is awesome track! Love the instrumentation and the changes. Bass and guitar dance very well together.”

Have a listen to Stephen’s single Red Red Sky featuring Grammy Award Winning and legendary drummer, Dave Abbruzzese (Pearl Jam) and multi instrumentalist Bob Hewitt mixed by Dave and mastered by Ludwing Diaz.
