It’s time for another video from the Cubist sessions and this one is an original composition – with vocals this time – entitled When You’re Gone.
I wrote this song at the Banff Center for the Arts and recorded it for an album I released as The Ever After in 2019 called Eh Voila! It’s a bittersweet ballad about missing someone special and it’s a song I’m quite partial to. I hope you enjoy it as well.
I’m pleased to tell you about an album that I made a number of years ago as The Ever After that is being re-released after being unavailable since 2015. It’s called Take Two and it contains remastered versions of the songs that were on the original EP, with new artwork and the lyrics included.
If you would like to read more about it and take a listen you can do that here.
2020 has been a strange year to say the least. Hopefully you have been able to remain healthy and positive during these trying times. People have found all types of ways to weather this global pandemic and ensuing lockdowns. Personally, I’ve taken the opportunity during this “downtime” to revisit some guitar pieces I’ve been working on over the years. I decided to start recording some of them in September and by November I had a whole bunch of them ready to be mixed including several holiday songs.
Having intended to put out some holiday music for a little while and never finding the time to do it I made a point this year – with everything slowed to a virtual standstill – to finish and release some songs and…
…it still took way longer then anticipated and I nearly missed the deadline again this year (haha).
So I had to make a decision: Initially these songs were going to be part of a larger album – possibly multiple – but that material isn’t ready so instead I decided to release these 7 songs as a short Christmas medley entitled “Holy Day Songs – Volume 1”.
