so last night i was recording a song with my buddy ben nester.
ben & i used to play in a band called Routine Homecoming together.
it was initially ben's solo project, but it eventually developed into a five piece.
each of us had a fulltime job and small children
and living in NH made for long trips to play out,
and so for this and various other reasons
the band folded about a year ago (on good terms).
other members of the band included
paul vittum, nate herrick & micah drexler.
at the moment ben & i are writing and recording music
under the name Be Thine Mountain.
the focus is on recording as opposed to playing out.
it's a very loose arrangment and therefore
works very well with our present lifestyles.
in a week or so i hope to post Be Thine Mountain's
first song for all to listen to and download,
as well as sharing my broader vision
for forming a collective of recording musicians
who are interested in harnessing free music
as a means of saving the world.
or at least parts of it - or people within parts of it anyhow.
so if you're a musician with the ability to do home recordings
and you like the idea of saving people in parts of the world,
then you might want to tune in for that one.
for now, here are some recordings from Routine Homecoming.
hope you enjoy, and would love to here your comments ~ doug
