Messing With My Head

Lou Armer – Messing With My Head

This is a brand new tune I’ve been working on. It’s not the final mix but I thought I’d share it for those of you that missed it on The Mainstream this morning. And to prove I’m not just living the high life here in Boston!

Featuring Craig Robertson on guitar who also recorded and mixed it.

Song of the Week: Week 4 ~ Dancing Shoes

Lou Armer – Dancing Shoes (Rough Demo)

I’ve ummed and ahed about posting this… It’s one of the songs that I wrote last year. It’s very rough, more of a sketch than anything and probably goes on a bit too long but sod it.

Next up will be a brand new song once I’ve finished wrestling it into shape.

Song of the Week: Week Three ~ Sad Song

Lou Armer – Sad Song

Yes, yes, I know, I’m very behind with my song a week project. I’m still determined to have a fair old crack at it though, even if I am a bit creative with my time keeping. I have a whole backlog of stuff to share with you so don’t give up on me yet.

Some of you may have heard this song before. I posted the demo here when I first recorded it. I did this version for the CD that accompanies the latest What Do Ukulele Players Eat cookbook compiled by Rose Turtle Ertler. Thanks to Craig Robertson who mixed it for me.

What Do Ukulele Players Eat #2 contains 22 recipes from ukulele players from around the world, including Armelle Europe (France), Rodrigo Lemos (Brazil), Maitake (Japan), Alan Soo (Singapore) and Brittni Paiva (Hawaii) to name but a few. You can also check out my own recipe for Raspberry Bakewell Cake.

The book also comes with a 20 track CD of music by the contributors. Illustrations are by Skylaar Amann (I’m a big fan of her UkuLuLu comics).

Copies will be available to buy any day now via Rose’s website. But if you want one, be quick! The last lot sold out in no time. My copy arrived this morning and I think Rose has done a great job. Now, what’s for tea?

Song of the Week: Week Two – Out Of Her Sight

Lou Armer – Out Of Her Sight (Demo)

Another guitar demo. But the next one will be a ukulele song, I promise!

The guitar is a little sloppy on this but I can’t imagine playing steel string at the moment. I pick up my classical every once in a while but that’s it. Most guitars just seem far too unwieldly after playing the ukulele, especially when you’re a bari player.

One day, I will acquire the perfect sized guitar but it’s not going to happen any time soon so let the uke tunes commence forthwith!

Song of the Week: Week One – Growing

Lou Armer – Growing (Demo)

I’m finally clearing the backlog. It is my full intention to reach the end of this year with 52 Song of the Week posts and 52 Video of the Week posts. So even if I fall behind, I’ll do some catching up here and there and it will all come out in the wash.

This is a demo from back when I still wrote songs on guitar.

Songs make you grow!
