Mixing songs for the new CD came to a halt last week when the 13th Muse showed up with another song. All the way from Cuba (more on him later- I had a poem ready to post about the encounter when my computer crashed. But I’m not going to complain since it was the day the world was meant to end…).
So we started recording this fun new son Cubano tune “One Sweet night” on Monday, and I’ll be writing/singing this one in Spanish. Hopefully back in the studio early next week.
Over the weekend we started shooting a fun new music video- all over San Francisco. yay! Rehearsing new music last night. Bringing new bandmates into the fold. Life is spilling over.
Since I can’t post finished songs yet- or make much jewelry now, I’m going to start posting more about the artists who are über inspiring & prolific where & when i’m not 😉 like in jewelry.
Here is an artist/designer whose work I adore now- Kristen Gluckman (Matsudabunch) makes these cool sterling silver charm necklaces that are edgy & fun. I treated myself to one because this weekend I have a gig sitting in w/ SF punk band Ready! Ricochet. On accordion! This is a lil’ ironic- because i started on drums in punk bands. And let’s just say that punks don’t normally wake up thinking about accordion players. 😉
And here are 2 very cool give-aways! If I could stop to learn anything right now (beyond jazz chords on my accordion)- HOW to enamel metal beads is high on my jewelry todo list. And the artist i would want to learn from, blog here to find out the details of how to win., is publishing a new book about it Called “Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry: A workshop in Painting with Fire”. To celebrate the release of her book, she is hosting this giveaway- a $75 value! Go to her
