Who's a fan of Misha and Periphery here?

The guy is speaking the truth as cold is it may sound...

'We make no money. And people have a really hard time grasping that.'

During yesterday’s rehearsal with my buddies from Roadbound. We’re preparing our show for our 17 March show in Brussels.

I love Bob Reynolds's vlog. Have you seen that bit?
This point must be said and shared about making music:

"It takes courage to be honest."


And I would add that showing your soul bare naked without any flashy trick is especially hard in those times of social networks where every other player seems so good and where comparison is so tempting.

I hope that it encourages you to just play, write and record music because you like it.

1min raw take of practicing Violin Sonata I by J.S. Bach. Camera sound. Guitar straight into the amp with no effects. That's how every Friday morning should be!

Took a couple of days off the EP recordings to refresh my ears, my mind and inspiration. Finally opening my Christmas' gift from my lovely sister in law: Violin sonatas and partitas from J.S. Bach. The 2 first pages got me hooked this week. So beautiful and meaningful. Each note is a treasure!

Here's a useful trick when your guitar has a low action but you need it to record some slide guitar. Learnt that from watching Guthrie Govan.

1 year ago exactly I was releasing IRRESISTIBLE with my band Rouge United, simultaneously announcing the split of the band.

Such a bittersweet moment that brings back so many dear moments and people to my mind. I remember that prior to the recording the band had organized a co-financing campaign, which we made a video for with the help of Alpha And We and all of our video nerd friends from the Rock System team: Joachim, Laurent, David. We sold digital and si...gned versions of the album, music lessons, beautiful t-shirts designed with the help of Julien Spreutels and much more... So many fans, music lovers, friends and relatives showed their support and love. It was not enough in the end, but it was still incredible.
Then came the recording. Only drums were recorded in a real studio in Portugal, with the help of the almighty Daniel Cardoso who drummed to it like a beast in a time lapse of just a few days. Daniel sent the recorded drums tracks and I recorded all the instruments in my home-studio, then later in my bedroom that I had turned in a recording studio after I had moved in to a new place for a few months, before getting ready to travel through South America. Even 90% of the vocals were recording at this place by the singer. Our live guitarist Georges also helped us by recording some cello at his place for the song "Whatever Happens". After months of recording the album was mixed and mastered by the same Daniel Cardoso who drummed in the first place. And our friend Jolene Casko art & etc brought the final touch to it with a stunning artwork while Julien was able to capture it in a superb booklet. It was a beautiful moment where I realized how lucky I was to live in this time where you can make your dreams come true with a bit of technology, lots of will and risk-taking and at the same time so much love and support from all your surrounding and creative people. I'm forever grateful for this! I really am. And all of this is crystallized forever in those few songs. This is the power of music.

So once again thank you to all the people who believed in us and were part of this.

And as I'm recording some new music and getting ready to release it in a few weeks I wanna tell you that no matter how low you feel at some point, you will find the strength to keep going and do what you love. Go for happy!

Now let me invite you to listen to IRRESISTIBLE if you haven't yet. You will find it on Youtube, Bandcamp, and all of favorite digital platforms (Spotify, iTunes...).

Feel free to share it if you like it.

Have a great weekend, friends!

Carefully listening to Nick Johnston for the first time.

I love the guitar dialogue between Nick and Guthrie in Silver Tongued Devil. Some great moments!

Anything I shouldn't miss from the guy?

It always feels a bit awkward to talk to a camera but I did it nonetheless. Should I keep doing it, or just keep the playing? Won't you get bored of just seeing my fingers? 🙂

Anywayyyyy, here's my 2nd short studio report.

Big "thank you" to my buddy Georges for the quick mix!
