Matt Katsis added 5 new photos.
21 gigs, 4 festivals & 16 street jams since January road testing some new music, felt it was about time to record a new EP! On Thursday drove out to country VIC, we hired an old hall and recorded some tracks live with the rhythm section and yesterday I put down some solo songs!Mixing starts today!
A couple months back while busking along Bourke st mall one of my songs was filmed for an initiative called FEELING THE STREET. In short a small team has traversed the globe documenting 200 street performers. 6 buskers will be chosen (one from each different category) who will win an all expenses paid trip to New Zealand, roadtripping playing gigs and a festival spot. This is where you guys come in!
Voting is by the general public, if you could help out that'd be awesome! here’s a rundown - log in via facebook and receive 100 virtual dollars to spend on your favourite busker or buskers (hoping you kind folks will have chosen me!) Select the amount you’d like to give and it’s as easy as that.
Just follow the link, and by signing up and voting you go into the draw to be 1 of 6 who get the chance to go on the trip aswell, that ain’t bad!!
FYI the site is easier to navigate through via iphone, ipad tablet etc
