"Patron Saints Covers"

I had so much fun doing "Black Eyed Dog" at Phiomath's suggestion that I thought i'd try and incorporate it into the rewards for the "Patron Saints Quest"... so anyone who gets involved with the funding will be rewarded with a cover-version for themselves. Each saint can suggest some artists/bands and I'll come up with a cool cover version and upload it when the saint "Climax" is achieved, ie $25 tipped. Also, Saints will be exclusively informed of upload so they have best chance of FB... Ain't I loverly??

Over and out

"PATRON SAINTS QUEST"

This is the result of the latest brain-storming session to try figure out a cool way to raise funds for new album! Be warned!!! :)

On the subject of the album... songs are written, recording proper has started on 4 tracks, producer is in place (www.filippogaetani.com), flights are sorted, studio is booked for Jan (www.grouselodge.com) the ball is well and truly rolling. :0

So... back to the brain storming!
the concept is simple. T61 listeners can pay in advance for a copy of the soon-to-be-completed cd. $25 will get you a signed copy mailed to you as soon as it comes back from the printers.

Now here's the trick. You can pay in installments of tips (from $1 upwards) at your own pace & you can tip using t61's "patron of the arts" quest and earn yourself hearts and rep as you go!

So if you'd like to help, or have questions, just holler.

thanks a million

Not a bad deal if I say so myself.

Album2 update

Things took a very exciting & positive step forward recently!
I am just back in Ireland after spending an amazing weekend high up in the Hills of Tuscany, Italy. A weekend of Lightning storms (first night,very epic!), stunning scenery, breathtaking sunsets, beautiful food & wine and of course music.

I had been invited to come visit by the incredibly talented Producer Filippo Gaetani , who had happened upon my songs on here and made contact. One thing led to another and next thing I knew I was on a plane and on my way! Over the weekend we discussed the songs and got to work on some recordings. Ideas and music were flowing freely and the songs were grooving!

And so it was agreed, Filippo Gaetani will produce my second album, and I couldn’t be happier!! Recording will continue over the coming months and I will keep updates on here. Some of the other artists he’s worked with recently include Adrina Thorpe and Tessa Drummond & he is one half of the alt-rock project Loom.

_____________________________

Peter Doran was born a quarter of a century ago, the exact circumstances of his birth are somewhat clouded and have almost certainly been distorted and exaggerated with the passing of time. His father was a travelling psychic, his dear old Mother a concert pianist with somewhat paranoid tendencies and an irrational fear of Russian literature.

At some point in Peter's formative years he happened upon the electric guitar and instantly fell in love. The feel, the sound, the look, the lot. For many years he practised tirelessly, determined to play very very fast. Over time he mellowed, and became less and less interested in the speed of the notes, but in their character instead. This he decided was where the magic lay.

Peter began to write songs in his mid-teens and continues to do... (+) expand

Thanks PD! Your music sounds amazing! I especially like Older Now (speaking of which can you heart another artist's song from an artist profile or do you have to make a listener profile?). Well congratulations on 500 listeners!!!! keep it up

One of the greatest Nick Drake covers I have ever heard. I just love this song, and Nick Drake too (since I'm named after the song 'Joey')
