Matthew Seligman and Kevin Armstrong came to stay with me for a few days, and we routined some of my new songs.
They sound AMAZING. What a delight to play with old friends. We understand each other so well. And they’ve both kept their chops up over the years, ever since the early days of Local Heroes, Low Noise, and my first and second albums.
When they came onstage with me at the Islington Academy last October, it felt like a reunion. The reaction was so warm and positive, it took me quite by surprise. I’ve played with many backing bands over the years but these two have a unique place in Dolby folklore. We worked over 5 songs and we’re planning to record three of them in early September, with a drummer (as yet undecided.)
Here’s a couple of neat pics of them from the Academy (thanks elekgtricgypsy!) Kevin’s in the specs.
