Hope your start to 2015 was a great one. If it wasn’t, have faith, keep pushing in your chosen direction, make adjustments if necessary, believe in yourself, and things will get better as the year progresses.
I’m excited to announce that Black Monolith’s first album will be due for completion by end of March. We’ve also just done one gig for an Arts-event which was very well received. We have another gig coming up, an acoustic one, at Lasalle College Of The Arts.
I’m currently in the midst of another recording project for a Pop/Rock outfit called the Ninth Order. The band comprises:
Sunny Deo – Lead Vocals / Principal Songwriter
Kevin Mikhail – Lead Guitars
Sean Rezel – Rhythm Guitars
Bobby Chan – Keyboards
Muhammad Sultan – Bass
Yours truly – Drums, Percussion.
These guys are another great bunch to work with. Its a very relaxed and fun atmosphere – two things you need to make great music.
This project marks the first time that I’m working with an established producer. He’s none other than Mr. Duke Purisima, who’s a 2013 Grammy Nominee for his work on Arun Shenoy’s album, Rumbadoodle. It is a great honour and privilege to work with someone of those credentials, and it gives me both security and confidence in my contributions to the album. His advice helps alot in improving the drum parts and my performances that have been recorded so far have been above even my own expectations.
