Chosen, my first solo album, is now out! Chosen is a concept album about battling depression. You can find more details about it here: https://ajrussell.ca/

@LavishDude, an acoustic alt. duo with my good pal @thinkalto, has two albums out, Leading Off, and Lavish Dude Wants to Battle, where we re-imagine our favourite Dude Tunes as chip tunes. Check it out here! https://lavishdude.com/

What's next? I'm thinking of an instrumental driven album, filled with many compositions and improvisations. Only time will tell how it will end up.

I'm open to collabs of all sorts! I play many different instruments, sing, write songs, solos, lyrics, instrumentals, fiddle around with synths, do audio engineering things, and all in all look to have a good time with cool people.

Thanks so much for your nice comment. I put a lot of work in some of that expressiveness so I really appreciate the comment :)

Thanks for your comment. I guess this is how I'd map the song:

intro (0- 0:08) - kind of a foreshadowing of a later part
A (0:08-0:22)
B (0:22 - 00:40)
C(0:40 - 0:55)
D(0:40 - 1:14)
A
B
C (keyboard solo)
C (harmonica solo)
E (part of A with different parts on top
F (kind of a bridge you could say that travels around a bit..)
A
B

I recorded and put it together incrementally part by part.

Ahh sounds great the drums! I usually do similar (don’t have my electronic kit atm) but you’ve done it really well! I will check out that kit too it sounds very good

Hi @deadhead I am @mikegtz and your partner in collaboration with @nadine. My email is mikegtz22@aol.com and I’ll be starting us off with lyrics. Can you give me your direct email address? Please reply on my profile and I will also be listening to a couple of your songs to get a feel for your music.

Hi, thank you for the detailed comments. The suggestion to use more held notes at the ending is a good one. The bass playing was the last part added and improvised - maybe I will redo it or arrange it for my instrumental band keeping your suggestion in mind.

Well I guess that explains why I didn't find it that odd ^^

Would be interested in doing a collaboration depending on schedules. Trying to get together a group to collaborate on some kind of rock/bluesy thing.

I have much love and appreciation for the dead family of all periods. Good music and inspiration abounds. Hope we can cross musical paths during this FAWM season.

I will, it's on my to do list! But it may take a good while I'm super busy with catching up on my projects as you know :)
