Introducing the Low Down Riders

Recently I joined a new band – “The Low Down Riders” which is a foray into Dixieland & New Orleans music. For those in Sydney you can catch the band fairly regularly at The Lord Wolseley, Gasoline Pony, White Horse hotel and various other places we pop up.
The band also marks my debut into lead vocals and here is a clip singing and playing my very first instrument – a B & H Cornet purchased in 1995.

Last week I stepped into the studio with some of my closest friends and favourite musicians to record a set of new music under the project name “TROMINDIE”.

Its a new direction for me and this clip below is a little improvisation from the end of the second day with myself on live trumpet and engineer Richie B on live Space Echo.

The Maurice Effect

I wrote this track after an inspiring trip to Umbria Jazz Festival in 2009. During 10 days participating in the Berklee Clinics I saw amazing performances by jazz legends and every night from midnight hung out and played at the Elf CLub Jam sessions. One night the great Trumpeter Maurice Brown came in and we jammed a few tunes – His energy, musicality and trumpet styling made a huge impact on me.

Arrow :: Navigator will be released very soon!

Random Acts of Instruments

On Wednesday I had the pleasure of heading into the 2dayFM studios in Sydney to collaborate with the amazing beatboxer and multi-instrumentalist Vanessa Caspersz. We got together and made our own version of “Riptide” by Vance Joy.

It was a really fun experience taking the original song, re-arranging it for Beatbox, Ukelele, voice, handclaps and trumpet. We spoke at length about trying to be as creative sonically as we could with lots of extra instruments but also serve the story behind the song.

Below is the link to the video:

Hey Everyone,

 
The last few months have been very eventful crossing more borders and timezones than I can count playing music anywhere and everywhere. I started in Amsterdam with Caravana Sun and making our way our the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Austria and Portugal, including performing during teh Australia vs Netherlands game in Einhoven (Netherlands) to a bunch of unruly Dutch people. I was in Munich to watch Germany win the final and since returning to Sydney found myself in Perth for a week and now have just completed an 8 day tour of NZ with my jazz group Tiny Hearts. Where am I now? A brief pause lands me back in Sydney for 8 days (with a quick overnight in Brisbane). 
 
I have a performance (all-ages) next Thursday 28th August at Sydney’s great jazz club Venue 505. The opportunity to perform in Sydney is becoming rare as I’m finding myself feeling more and more a local in so many different places around the world.
 
For this performance on the 28th, I’m joined by my comrades from Tiny Hearts and 505 is one of my favourite venues in Sydney. We are performing music from our album “Alluvium” and also new compositions that are soon to be released on a live EP recorded and filmed in Christchurch NZ. We are fresh from undertaking an 8 day New Zealand tour and in peak form.
 
I’d love to see you down there at the gig, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a lot of you and I’d love to catch up and see whats happening in your world.
 
Here’s the deets:
What: Tiny Hearts
Where: 505 (corner of Cleveland and Perry Streets Surry Hills (280 Cleveland Street)
Time: Doors from 6:30pm and Performance begins 8:30pm
Cost: $15 Adult / $10 Concession
 
505 has great food and a fine selection of craft beers, wines and whiskeys.
 
 
Hope to see you soon,
 
Eamon
