Smooth-Jazz.de First View: Jamie Bonk – Who Said It Was Easy?
I’m playing at the Satin Laser Spa Port Moody Anniversary Celebration and Cancer Fundraiser this Saturday, February 24th (11AM – 3PM). 50% of all service proceeds and 10% of all product sold this day will be donated to Leukemia & Lymphoma Blood Cancer Research. I’ll also be selling my CDs for $10 each and donating $5 from each sale. If you’re in the area on Saturday, please drop by the event and say hi!
Producer, guitarist and DJ, Taylor Hoy joined me for Episode #5 of “No Tuition”. Taylor shared some insights into his workflow, both for his own original music and for his remixes, as well as talking about his approach to the guitar. I think the interview turned out great and hope you enjoy watching it!
Episode #4 of “No Tuition” features musician/painter Ron Scott. We chatted about Ron’s artwork, his compositional process, his love of looping and his work on TV shows such as “Corner Gas” and “Antique Roadshow”. Ron was kind enough to perform a number of examples of how he uses his looper in a live performance setting. Even though I’ve known Ron for over 20 years, this interview gave me a deeper insight into both his music and his painting.
In Episode #3 of “No Tuition”, I speak with Vancouver-based singer/songwriter/guitarist Matthew James Gibson. Matt’s debut album, “A Trip To Remember, A Place To Forget”, was just released and we chatted about the making of the record, his creative process and much more.
This second episode of “No Tuition” features an interview with singer/songwriter/guitarist Nolan Hubbard. Nolan was kind enough to speak with me on one of his few days off from his current tour. We covered everything from how he writes to his gear to his future plans and I think the interview turned out fantastic!
