From around 2011 to 2013, I was in a band we named Steel Roots. We were mostly just a bunch of guys that got together once a week and jammed, but we did play a few live shows.
I have been playing in apartments and homes I have lived for some 30 years, and continue to play in my garage or around the campfire to this day. It’s seldom that I jam with anyone other than Spotify these days unfortunately.
These recordings are not professional by any means but like my writing, it’s nice to have a place where these passions exist beyond Facebook or my harddrive.
MTV Unplugged version of A-Ha’s This Is Our Home. The harp froze a little in the end but it provides for a bit of a chuckle.
Stevie Nicks, Landslide
My harmonica track inserted into the original Stevie Nicks song.
Man I miss these guys. This was at Homegrown Hamilton. We’d never played Wilco track before, but the one guitarist and I had played it a few times over the summer. So much talent on that stage. I learned so much from them from music I had not been properly introduced to before, to the knowledge and passion the younger bandmates had for this artform.
