AMAZING AUDIO / VISUAL!
Hello Fans – Thanks for dropping by….due to the Covid19 Pandemic around the world, much of the entertainment culture has been severely affected since the beginning of 2020. Many artists are seeking other means to present their medium. We are all hoping the world will correct itself, but for the near future, things are the way they are and information about the Pandemic is changing daily. Personally, I’m grateful to have consistently performed as a solo artist for the last 12+ years at several venues, and thus, created a fan base around the globe. That chapter was quite an awesome journey!!
Moving forward, after many conversations within the arts field, and connecting/deliberating with technical online professionals, I have decided to move forward with a new way of presentation:
SPIRIT streams everyday LIVE !
Click this link to view the live performance page:
The plan is to entertain, keep up my “chops”, engage and interact with viewers and fans, and most importantly – have FUN!! The quality of SOUND and VIDEO is exceptional for your viewing. There is interaction with “SONG REQUESTS” and a “CHAT FORUM” in which you can communicate with me, LIVE – plus many other engaging attributes.
To view a live performance, click the link at the top or bottom of this page that says “SPIRIT ON TWITCH”. This platform is very musician and audience friendly! It is easier to manage than other platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Youtube.
Schedule: (Pacific Daylight Time)
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 6pm – 11pm
Thursday, Friday, Saturday 7pm – Midnight (or later)
If you have any questions about listening/watching the stream, or would like to discuss setting up a virtual personal live performance customized for your specific event, send me an email!! Thanks again for dropping by!!
Read on for more information about Acoustic Live Looping…..
As an Acoustic Live-Looping Artist, Spirit creates music like a painter generates a painting. A painter adds to the canvas with every stroke of the brush, and within time, a masterpiece is created. Spirit achieves the same results using his acoustic guitar to create layers upon layers, with your ears being the canvas – for every song – at every performance. The amazing organic result is then topped with a strong vocal performance.
“I love a well written song, with solid hooks and structure – melodies that take you to places, or make you think, or let you dream. I enjoy the authentic sound of a live performance, bringing a familiar tune – or my original music to people. I consider it a privilege to do so.” Whether performing a classic rock song by Bryan Adams or The Tragically Hip, a smooth melodic Gershwin tune, or picking out a classic pop song from Maroon 5, the audience is left with an emotional feeling of fulfilment with every note.
More than just an acoustic guitar player / singer, Spirit is a proficient live performer, equally with Percussion, Bass, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, and vocal abilities. Collectively, the instrument sounds you hear during a live performance are created organically through his acoustic guitar, which means all performances are live, using no pre-recorded tracks, keyboards, drum synthesizers, or computerized sounds. Even the back-up vocals are created during the song without the use of vocal harmonizer gear. Add this with years of touring, he continues to complete over 250 performances per year.
His first album “All The Pieces” (@2014) demonstrates a fresh and unique combination of modern penmanship, layered with melodic melodies and very catchy riffs. Songs begin with a single instrument, which are eventually layered over to complete the each peice. Specifically, his song Soul For Sale has reached over 100,000 views on YouTube.
Spirit has recently released 3 singles from his project called “Hands“. The singles are a “path to direction”, whereby many genres and avenues can be studied by an artist, but these original singles represent a broad scope of experiment: “Give It All Back“, “Where, Oh Where“, and “Hands” (self-titled) are created using the acoustic live-looping process – but the creation of the song is deleted so that one listens to the song itself – unlike the first album “All The Pieces”.
Since placing Top 20 in the Vancouver area in a recent CBC Contest with his single “Come To Think Of It“, he has sold out shows and warmed up for artists and bands such as Canadian Legend Burton Cummings, 54-40, Platinum Blonde, and Juno award winners CHILLIWACK and PRISM. He has performed at several corporate clients and the grand opening at Hard Rock Casino Vancouver, plus was invited to return to the Hard Rock One Year Anniversary in January 2014, with BIF NAKED and EVERLAST.
Since the beginning of the Pandemic, all shows have been converted into the DAILY LIVE PERFORMANCE.
The first album “All The Pieces” (C2014) saw the attachment of 2 videos demonstrating his “Acoustic Live–Looping Performance” technique, which have gained over 100,000 YouTube views. Watch here:
