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 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!

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!

Sad Song

I know it’s been a while since I last posted. I set this site up in the midsts of my dad dying. I think subconsciously I knew I had a long winter ahead and I wanted to give myself something positive to concentrate on when I returned home. Now I am home, I’m taking things really slowly but I am spending a lot of time in the studio, so you can expect to see this site developing at last. This is a song I wrote during those last weeks with my dad. It’s also the first outing of the Horncastle melodica.

Ready for Love!

Well, it’s about time I had my own site. A proper site I mean, so here I am. I’ve had a scrapbook on Tumblr for a couple of years now, which I love and will continue to maintain. A girl still needs somewhere to rant and post pictures of cats. This site is more about me & my music making, somewhere I can blog in more depth. I will probably write about other musical things along the way. It’s going to take me a while to get used to things around here so bear with me.

Speaking of music, here’s a demo of a new song I just recorded. It’s a bit rough around the edges and features some Les Dawson style playing on my newly acquired toy accordion (pictured).

I had no idea what notes I was playing but there’s something about it that I like, so I’ve kept it in for now.
