In mid-May, I returned again to 30 Below Studio in New York to continue tracking on my latest recording project. It’s shaping up to be ten new songs — all originals of mine, and I hope it is released before the end of the year. It’s a true solo album… I’m playing most of the instruments. The songs I’ve written are in the singer-songwriter style with a definite nod to blues. There’s some pop, lounge, and country in the mix too. One of the songs was compared to a Glenn Campbell tune by a musician friend of mine when I played it at a recent acoustic solo show!
Working with me on the project are Kevin Tooley (drums), Frank DiNunzio III (bass, backing vocals), Michele Butler (backing vocals), and of course the brilliant engineer Brent McLachlan. Patric Roes the world class bass player from Holland stopped by the studio to say hello too. He’s visiting New York from Europe and playing bass with Frank at a showcase gig here.
AHPresents welcomes Dina Regine, Phil Gammage, and Anne Husick to their Songwriter Circle Series on Thursday, May 12 7:30–9pm. The Series features NYC’s best songwriters alternately performing their songs in an intimate cafe setting.
Join us for an evening of music and stories. No cover charge, all ages, and great food and drink at the Sidewalk Cafe (94 Ave. A @ E. 6st.) in Manhattan’s East Village.
Phil Gammage is the consummate live performer, lyricist, singer, guitarist, and harmonica player who brings a unique depth and drama to music, playing original blues/americana. This spring he is working on recording his seventh solo album and touring Europe with rock band Certain General.
Performing Songwriter Magazine called Dina Regine‘s style ‘roots music with a modern twist’. Musician, photographer, and club/event DJ are the titles Regine juggles with a fierce passion. www.dinaregine.com/
Anne Husick has worn many hats in the music biz — from singer/songwriter/musician to soundperson to booking agent/party promoter. Aside from currently playing bass in Red Gretchen and The Cynz, Anne has been focused on writing and performing her own songs relevant to the world and her position in it. http://scarletdukes.com/wordpress/?page_id=1106
