Good job man!! Must have been quite enjoyable indeed

JayB! Wow!
This is amazing! You play so beautifully! Did you write these songs?
I am very impressed. Care to share the details of how this session came to be?
Still listening as I type.....just wow. Nice harmonies, too. Very fluid guitar playing. very cool. :)

Thanks!! That's very kind of you. :)

Yeah, they're all originals from my own pen...

I received a voucher for a 6 hour session at the Appleyard Studios out in the sticks in the south of England... I asked them who booked it, but whoever booked it for me wishes to remain anonymous for some weird (and infuriating! LOL) reason... superb gift though.

Had so much fun doing this yesterday...

What a cool thing someone did for you! And so now you have a secret admirer or a rich benefactor? Oh, the speculating would drive me crazy! :p

Have to say again, though, great job on your songs!

I know it's killing me! Lol.

Thank you!

Those are great Jay! Thanks for posting, and you have a secret fan!

Thank you! :-)

Well bloody done Blondie! Sounds really great. Bit of a Foucault vibe to it all. Super stuff. The place you recorded in looks brilliant as well. ;) :cool:

07-13-2013, 11:43 AM
Thanks mate. That is quite the compliment!

Yeah it was awesome.... almost had a bit of that big pink feel...

07-15-2013, 02:10 PM
Secret's out, I am your benefactor! good work mate!

Can you please post some photos from the recording sessions?

07-15-2013, 02:20 PM
Finished listening to it and really liked it. Heard some hawks influence in there too, nice work. how long did it take you to write those songs?

07-16-2013, 03:14 AM
Thanks Chief!! Can I have some more sessions please? :P

Thanks... appreciate it. Some were written over years, some were written in about 10 minutes. The 2nd and 3rd one I wrote on the fly in Singapore, they took roughly as long to write as they are long.

These are the only pics I have from the day.

You can have another session but you have to come here and we must jam!

07-16-2013, 01:43 PM
The place itself looks well cool.

Ravi, will you pay my mortgage for me? Seeing as you are feeling flush and all..

07-16-2013, 02:02 PM
Ok Ravi, deal! If you cover the airfare.

07-16-2013, 05:20 PM
Can't afford that since i just covered the session. let me know when you're in the US.

Calexico - sorry i can't help you!

Ok Ravi, deal! If you cover the airfare.

07-17-2013, 06:47 AM
OK, I'll come round and jam when I'm doing my first US tour.

07-17-2013, 04:28 PM
I can help you book a show in LA, just let me know when you're planning on it...

It might be a while!
