The Clubmen!! 

As some of you know, I have been involved in an ongoing project/trio thing with Andy Partridge and Stu Rowe since about 2008 or 9... called The Clubmen. Well, this year I think we might be closing in on an actual album!  We've started up recording again and are amassing a fair number of wonders :) Keep checking back for updates on our progress and for the release of a song off the upcoming album...

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge 

Hey kids... I was nominated to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! I didn't know a lot about this disease when I was asked... it just seemed like a lot of fun and I'm always down to help out for a good cause.  I've since done some reading up and have also connected with a few people who's lives have been effected in some way by this disease. It turns out I feel very grateful to have been asked to dump an ice cold bucket of water on my head and raise awareness! I hope you enjoy my video and that afterward you will take the time to find out a bit about ALS and spread the word!



This was done for me awhile back... I thought I had lost it in my many travels but hey hey! Here it is safe and sound :) Thanks Emal x

Shindig Magazine review of THE BREAKS! 

And finally I can't dismiss you without pointing you firmly in the direction of Albuquerque's startling Jen Olive, whose THE BREAKS proves beyond any reasonable doubt that she could be the envelope-pushing, acoustic guitar-toting Joni Mitchell of her generation if she wasn't already it's Linda Perhacs. Jen;s antennae perceive music differently than the lumpen herd: give her a 4/4 time signature and she'll create an elliptical orb within it, while she approaches harmonic intervals like a swift skimming the surface of a pool. It;s no stretch to imagine Radio 2 enhancing its stock thousandfold by placing the melodiously, effortlessly accessible 'Black Sunday', 'Time', or the title track on constant rotation: but personally, I won't be content until there's a statue of her in Albuquerque's Old Town.

All things new.... 

So.. I am back in the CA desert in a great little retreat/house... perfect . After nearly a year back from the UK, I think it;s time to get going again. My first thoughts are videos... easy, live videos. Just me and my guitar - back to basics. Any suggestions or requests? I should say in advance that Robot Boy and I Say Love are off the table for now - I need to listen to the raw guitar tracks and figure out the tunings all over again... shame on me I never write down anything! Other than those tho - let me know what you'd like to see/hear :) xx
