New Year, Old Name

New Year, Old Name

Happy New Year everybody! Hope it’s a good one so far. I just wanted to write a quick message to say that hereafter I’ll be releasing my solo material and other compositions under the name Andreas Blachere. My electronic project The Resident Alien is still in effect and we’ll see what becomes of The Ever After in the new year. Stay tuned for more great music and be well.

Oh Dear! Remixed and Remastered for 2019

Oh Dear! Remixed and Remastered for 2019

Andreas Blachere - Oh Dear!
Oh Dear! (2019 Reissue)

It has been 10 years since I recorded and mixed “Oh Dear!” in my studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I released it in Dec. 2009  but was never entirely satisfied with the quality of the sound. So for the album’s 10th anniversary I decided to have it mixed and mastered again!

The result is what I think is a better sounding record – definitely still “Indie” 🙂 but a better testament to what I had originally intended. I also updated the cover and decided to release it under my own name as it truly is – with the exception of two songs  – a solo album.

So if you like acoustic-folk guitar compositions I encourage you to take a listen to the new album below.

New EP is finished!

New EP is finished!

Here is the bounce down of the last track on the new EP. I’m very happy to finally be finished with this project and excited to share it with everyone. It’s been a little over a year that I’ve been working on it – when time permitted – and it’s gone through a number of iterations and mixes in order to get it to the point where I feel comfortable releasing it.

Now I can finally move on to new material, projects and horizons!

The release date for the EP has not yet been determined but it will probably be early in the new year and will be accompanied by a video and a release party/show.

As always, if you want to get updates about the release and coming shows, etc. you can sign up for the mailing list or follow on social media.

Stay tuned!

 

Check out the new video for “Leaving Everyone”

Check out the new video for “Leaving Everyone”

I’ve released a new video of an old song called “Leaving Everyone” that I thought you might enjoy it. I originally released the song in 2009 on The Ever After album “Oh Dear!”. The video was recorded at CB Studios in Montreal in front of a live audience and was masterfully shot and edited by Liana Pare at Liana the Ghost Film and Photography. The audio was recorded and mixed by Kent Ktok.

The song reflects the sardonic musings of a narcissistic dreamer who has come to the end of his rope. Tongue in check but with a sentiment we can possibly all relate to in our more exasperated moments 🙂 The video features cameos from some of best and brightest in Montreal and beyond. Perhaps you are one of them?

I hope you enjoy it!
