27…. As I’ve said before the majority of my work these days is as a lyricist and composer though I entered this business many years ago as a session guitarist and still enjoy that kind of work when it comes my way. It keeps me sharp and gives me reason to keep studying music during my (limited) spare time.
Last year I posted about a session guitar job I was doing composing and recording an 80s Rock-style guitar solo for a forthcoming release. Unfortunately I couldn’t give any details of the project at the time but now the album has been released, I can talk about my contribution. The project is called ‘27’ and follows the cool and quirky idea of writing the soundtrack to a film which doesn’t actually exist!
27 Film Soundtrack
The whole soundtrack album is fantastic and I played a guitar solo on a song called ‘Air’. Below you can see a funky ’27’ promotional clip with footage of my solo blended into the background – it looks great!
Below that, and for the guitar fans among you, you can see the footage I filmed at my studio when I originally recorded the ‘Air’ guitar solo for the 27 soundtrack. As you’ll hear, the raw and mixed sounds are very different and that’s a credit to Jack Hardman who is the brains behind the project, and engineer Iggy B.
Hear The Album
Until my next session guitarist job comes in, I’m returning to focusing on being a lyricist and composer, though working on ’27’ was a blast and I hope the project is a success. Take a look at the artwork in my newly updated DISCOGRAPHY.
