..I just released the recording from that gig, with a 3000 word essay, to my Bandcamp subscribers - more about that here: https://www.stevelawson.net/2019/09/new-album-new-essay-new-adventures-in-art-making/
Had a really lovely gig a couple of weeks back at the Belfast Guitar Festival - (Photo by Paul Hanley)
What's been happening with me? (I'll ask the question for you :) )
I'm WAYYYY behind on my #PhD but beginning to get caught up. need to have about a third of it written by next March or I'll get kicked off...
Been making a lot of #music (no, really??) - newest album is The Arctic Is Burning, available over on #Bandcamp - https://music.stevelawson.net/album/the-arctic-is-burning
wrote a thing about improv, audiences and recording - a bit of PhD thinking-out-loud :)
Dodged a bullet last night - smashed my toes into the side of the bath while getting in - the worst pain I've felt in ages, and I was dreading the likelihood that I'd broken any of them (cycling would be pretty tricky with a pile of broken toes)... This morning my foot aches and there's some light brusing on my toes, but seems like I missed out on actually breaking anything. phew... Still, that hurt massively. Can't remember the last time I felt pain like that...
Today is the anniversary of my first proper solo gig - 19 years ago I played at The Troubadour in London on a double bill with Carrie Melbourne, recorded the gig on minidisc and one of the tunes from it ended up on my debut solo album, the majority of which was recorded at The Troubadour the following March. It was such a lovely gig, and represented a significant leap forward in the journey to where we are now. ❤️🎶

New album! and New Video! The album is called Restless, and is out for my #bandcamp
# subscribers now - this 22 minute video is the 2nd track from it. It's a live recording, with Pete Fraser on Sax, and it's rather lovely - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr1cDdmo4yQ
the instrument I'm playing at the beginning for the piano part (and later on for the drums) is a Keith McMillen Quneo - amazing midi performance surface :) https://www.keithmcmillen.com/products/quneo/
The UK's leading solo bass guitarist, but don't let that put you off. Journalisting, teaching and PhDing too. See http://stevelawson.net for more...
