Its been 8.5 months since i last wrote and produced – started with lyrics on this one – vox to come
A new last-minute recording of a Christmas classic. Rough around the edges, but it’s the sediment that counts. Or is that sentiment?
Anyway, enjoy the holidays.
This is a remixed version of a very 80s version of Jingle Bells I did back in 2013. Basically cleaned up the mix and replaced the drum loops with drummer.
Written December 2009, while in post mix on Fall Out. That was an amazing studio session. It’s my first take at a Christmas song…

Artie is a local songwriter / vocalist / guitarist who has been spilling his musical seeds all around the far South Coast for decades.
Born in England, Artie migrated to Australia when he was 5. His musical life kicked up big time when, at age 10, he scored a role in the His Majesty’s Theatre ( Melbourne ) production of Oliver.
Artie moved to Wyndham, on the far South Coast, at age 32.
He established the local legends “Lounge Lizards’ with whom he continued to perform whilst also playing in ‘The Chevys’ rock band, the ‘Southerly Buster Band’ and ‘Black Velvet’.
We didn’t see Artie again until October 2019 when he appeared in The Shed again and recorded his original “Fields Of Hay”
We suspect Artie has plenty more great originals up his sleeve and hope to see him more frequently than every six years. We’re too old to wait that long Artie!
Anyway, watch this space in hope.

Another Mini Opera that i haven’t been able to post anywhere! thank you for giving me a place to post it!
Composed by me on my iPad using Drummer and my own guitar and bass playing.
Patrick (Lafayette) played all the music and the lyrics and voice were added by me. This was one of a number of tracks I did with him.
He will be sorely missed.
The ocean is a powerful force that calls to me.
A gut reaction and stream of conciouness rant about the world we live in. Bring peace!
