The whole band is finally in place, and I can’t wait to start playing live with these awesome awesome guys! We were lucky enough to get to keep Kristian from the EP Launch (WUHU!!), but the rest of the players are brand spankin’ new to the table. Ready? Embrace the boys! ❤
Kristian is the only other Norwegian in the bunch, and he is a wizard on keys. He’s a busy boy, and has a lot of different balls in the air – bands and musicals and you name it – and we are lucky to have him. I’m looking forward to having his flair sprinkled all over the (Ever A)new songs!
Kobi first contacted me about playing at the release gig, but Will Rogers was already on the job then. Since Will is busy doing his own stuff this year I emailed Kobi when the time came to re-group, and he jumped straight on it. He is so great, he is passionate about the music and has lots of good ideas. Before I even asked him to join he had bought the EP off iTunes and learned two of the songs just because he liked them…! He also found the rest of the bunch for us, so YAY Kobi!
Awesome guy, loves the music, comes prepared and knows his shit. Just look at him. Fierce! Haha, but seriously, he is one funky mofo.
Elliot was the last piece of the puzzle, and we had one hell of a first rehearsal on Wednesday. He is going to bring some electronic kit-bits in very soon, so we can play around with awesome sounds. Way cool.
And of course you know Dan. He has been coming up with some fantastic song ideas lately, and we are pretty much writing every day now. We’re totally on the same page with the sound, and I am loving the new songs. Which you will hear soon enough by the way. 😉
We’ve only had one rehearsal all together, but it was a great rehearsal. It is so fantastic to play with a band where everyone is involved, enthusiastic, likes the music and puts the work in between rehearsals! Yes!! We got through Hide Away and Any Day Now last week, and I’m already looking forward to playing Nothing I Could Do and Free on Wednesday. And then, on to the new stuff!
We might try some covers eventually as well – there’s so many amazing bands out there at the minute!! Such as, you say, and I won’t disappoint. The bands I can’t live without right now are Active Child, Everything Everything, Alt-J and Dear Pariah, to name a few. And if you like music, which you do because you’re human, you should seriously check them out.
Lots of love,
One Happy Audrey.
