This new video by HAV has just been put out ahead of their forthcoming first studio album “Inver’ which is released on May 2nd 2017 on Fokwit Records. Whilst you wait for the album to drop this video gives you a little taste of some of this new material – a nice mix of folk tunes mixed with ‘found-sound’ and electonica – very atmospheric!
I’m looking forward to firing up all my basses (upright, electric, ukelele) for the album launch at the end of May!
The new record by Marcella O’Sullivan is out. It is called ‘Wood of the Pilgrims’ and I’m very pleased to have been able to contribute bass to two tracks. Featuring Marcella (of course!) alongside Christophe, Harry, Adam Downey and Adam Sinclair of the Rubber Wellies among others. Here’s the opening track for you to listen to right now. If you like it check out the album and drop Marcella a message – I know she’d be thrilled to hear from you. Enjoy!
The new LP “Bricks and Feathers’ by Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies is now available via their website. The song writing is better than ever, there is some great playing throughout by everyone involved and it has been recorded and mixed masterfully by Adam Sinclair. All in all I’d say it’s worth a peek! Click HERE to buy the album.
This new video by Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies has just been put out ahead of the forthcoming third studio album “Bricks and Feathers’ which is released on May 1st 2105. You can pre-order the album from April 1st from their label website (Hot Drop Records). In the meantime this video gives you a little taste of some of the new material. Bit reggae this one 🙂
I’m looking forward to dusting down the Uke-bass and joining the lads on tour in May / Jun this year. Nothing beats touring with a U-bass I can tell you. Come say hello if you manage to get along to a gig!
I’ve been really enjoying playing my Uke-bass on tour with Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies this year. Portable, light, fun and sounds great! Highly recommended if you want an upright sound with none of the hassle! Here’s a cheeky live video that appeared last week from one of our Irish gigs in May. Enjoy!
I’m away to sunny Ireland for ten days to join Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies for part of their 2014 tour. Very excited to be taking my Kala U-Bass on the road for the very first time. If you happen to be in Ireland pop along to one of the shows from 1 – 11th May. In the meantime here’s a little live video/recording of a track called “Hummingbird” we did a few years back for your enjoyment:
The new 7″‘Kettle Full of Silver” (plus digital download) is now avaliable from Hot Drop Records. Very pleased to be on these records and I’m looking forward to heading out on the road with these lovely chaps later in the year.
that my D’Addario string endorsement has been renewed! I’m still particularly stoked about the fantastic double bass strings (Zyex – hybrid string) that I’ve got which are still going strong over a year later. Check out the new album by Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies “The Bones on Black” to hear them in action.
On my electric I’m using some of their flatwound chromes and you can hear these in action across Europe this summer with “Nick Pride and the Pimptones” and with the “Bohemian Rhapsody” tour. Great old school R & B sound!
