I have played as a studio musician on Mark
Davidson’s Laughter In The Clay and on Anne
Infante’s Love Is A Circle. On these CD’s I played
alto flute, C flute and penny whistles and really enjoyed the experience
of working with Anne and Mark. Mark also composed some music as part of a soundtrack for the documentary “New England Airways” and I played keyboard as part of the group that recorded this great number. It was cool seeing our names come up in the credits!!
I also played alto flute, C flute and keyboard on an EP that was
recorded at Stiller Studio last year. The EP was put together
by a fellow teacher at Good News - Richard Lewis, for his wife
as a birthday present for her. What a lovely sweet gesture it was and
the end result was fabulous! We also enlisted the help of a few of our
students at Good News and I know that the children really enjoyed the
experience of singing in the recording studio.
A few of years ago, I worked with Mark Smith (Real Productions) on the recording of a flute CD, featuring my alto flute and my C flute. Mark was terrific to work with, really knows his stuff and had the patience of a saint! My CD is called “Notes From Squire Street”, (the street I grew on in Sackville) and an instrumental CD. I enlisted the help of my Brian and a few muso friends to back me on this album and it was a lot of fun to put together. I wanted this CD to be a collection of songs that had an influence on me and my flute playing throughout the past 36 years. Each song except one has a history with me and brings back some
great memories. The song that I guess hasn’t really influenced
me is Christina Aguilera’s The Voice Within – I just really
like that song and enjoy playing it. So I’m pretty happy with
the tracks, although due to time constraints, I didn’t put on
a couple of songs that I had intended – The Crossing by Johnny
Cleg and Neil Young’s Heart of Gold. I am currently putting together a list of songs for my next CD - Notes From the Etter Ridge - and those two songs will definitely be on it! Watch this space!!
