Practice tonight with Elle Schillereff (backing singer), bassist (Adam Greenwood) and percussionist (Chris Cousineau) was really nice.

Despite the immense fear that I was about to walk outside and be blown into outer space by an extreme gale, the area of the world I happen to be resident in is (at this moment) not too affected by some of the crazy weather we’re having.

Recently, I have gone gaga over the sound of Adam’s double bass. I am astonishingly attracted to novelty items, but I have the feeling this is something that’s sonically necessarily for most of the songs.

Elle’s enthusiasm for being part of the process never ceases to amaze me. Looking forward to next Wednesday’s gig at The Baltic Social supporting the incredible Kalandra.
