Breadfoot All The Latest
All The Latest Music News from Tin Pan Folk & Americana Artist Breadfoot
March -April 2020 Edition
Two months into 2020. And I'm having a hard time finding time. Tried to explain this to another music making buddy when he said that I simply had to make time but ya know what folks it ain't always that easy.
And ya know that thoughts and ideas are like little birds on a wire. The slightest sound or movement and they just scatter. So now having a hard time trying to concentrate cause the lady friend has started a book on CD for her ma and the words are distracting. Factor in that I'm tired as fuck from a side job I worked today so pardon me if it seems like I'm having some trouble stringing thoughts together.
Let's see uh sure, right, I'm supposed to be working on Sunnyland. Uhm, had a free day. Kinda feel like have the bits I heard when I started sketching it out sorted. They're all there. Mostly. And yeah I know it's not great yet, but I think there's something there. Playlist at the top to the right in the side bar. If ya care to go get an ear full.
While I'm sharing Soundcloud playlist links how I lay this one on ya? Back before there was ever a Breadfoot there was a band called The Mooncalves. Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the release of Friends Of The Young & Cynical, Ectomorphic Mr. Douglas. This was my first full length CD release. Link to playlist is in the side bar to the right under the Sunnyland link. Check it out if ya wanna hear what I was conjuring up some 30 odds years ago.
In between I been working on designs for ClydeFEST 2020. Been involved with this children's festival honoring Folk Artist Clyde Jones for oh goodness, 10 plus years. Wow. Anyways couple images in the sidebar include the new 2020 Logo and a t-shirt design that is inspired by one of Clyde's original folk art critters.
Oh and hey check this out. Has become a bit of an addiction. I see suitcases at the thrift and I buy em and then when I get to em I turn em into another suitcase kick drum. This one is made from a Samonsite and features a Kickport and an Evans 56 Calftone Had thought when I was making it that I might try and sell it but then I heard it and said, nah she's mine.
Okay well lastly should tell ya with planning to put more time into Sunnyland I'll be backing away from live performances and going to bi-monthly on the Breadfoot updates. Check back here in May for new updates and if in the meantime ya wanna see if there's something new follow me on Soundcloud or Facebook and oh yeah if ya want pop on by over to the Breadfoot Store, T-shirts and CDs available and ya know I appreciate your support.
