Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son

Make Your Own Luck: The story behind the EP

The following is an open letter from Bobby Mahoney

“You have to make your own luck,” is probably the best advice anyone has ever given me about perusing a career in music, or about life in general. No one is going to hand you anything, and you aren’t going to get “discovered” while singing 90s songs in your shower. You have to create your own opportunities.

While working with my partner in crime, Jon Alba on the next Seventh Son record, I found myself writing a bunch of mellow acoustic songs in between writing kick ass hard rock tunes (if I may say so ourselves). I was listening to a lot of Neil Young, Jesse Malin, Brian Fallon, Johnny Cash and Paul Simon at the time. I hadn’t released any acoustic tunes since 2012, and it was a voice and style that I wanted to reconnect to before we jump right back into electric, “in your face” Seventh Son mode.

The songs were all written between July of 2014 and February of 2015, and they all had varying inspiration. I tried to be more conversational with the lyrics, getting away from the grandiose and exaggerated ideas found on Friends in Low Places. I wanted to the songs to be simple and short.

The EP kicks off with the song “Mayhem,” which was probably the most blatant, “hey girl I used to really like, this song is about you” song I’ve written thus far in my career. On the other songs, I take composites of other people, events, places, and combine them and change details to fit exactly what I am trying to convey, but on this song, each section has its own specific memory and I really didn’t change all that much from real life, to the recording. I feel extremely close to this song, and that’s probably not the best thing for my sanity, but any chance at salvaging that has long since past. In the original version of the lyrics, I used the word “fuck” a generous-amount, and I eventually went back and tried to be more eloquent about my feelings. I think that actually helped the song in the end. I really liked the idea of using the title “Mayhem” because it evokes chaotic and violent images that would typically be found in a heavier tune, but it is a sweet acoustic ballad. I think that contrast really makes the song.

Next, “Called it Quits,” which is probably my mother’s least favorite song I’ve written, but that’s okay – I still enjoy it. I wrote this song after listening to a lot of emo-punk bands, such as The Menzingers, and Modern Baseball. I wanted to deliver that same sense of indifference and informality in the delivery of the lyric. For the “hope its all right, hope its okay” portion, I channeled Cobain from “All Apologies,” at least that is what I envisioned. Last year I found myself wandering around campus at night with my iPod on shuffle, just listening to whatever and enjoying the solitude of the night, and this song was born from a few of those nights. “I don’t usually take long peaceful walks, but it is still not dark out yet.”

“Anna” is the third song on the EP, and it is loosely based on someone I knew briefly when I was younger, who was working on writing a book back when we were in middle school or junior high. The concept of writing a book at such a young age really impressed me, and I don’t know if she ever finished it or anything, but the song hopes that she didn’t change and eventually finished the book. We played this as a band one time in rehearsal and it was almost a Country-esque ballad, but I opted to just play it solo acoustic. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a bunch of these songs getting the band treatment over the next few years.

“Troubled Breeze” is about the Court Tavern on Church Street in New Brunswick. There is this stop sign that is almost completely covered in stickers from all the bands that have played there, and I have spent a lot of time just standing under it talking to a lot of interesting characters as they bum cigarettes and talk about whatever bands they love or hate. When I was younger, I had a song called “Troubled Breeze” that I played on piano. This song has nothing to do with that, other than I recycled the title, but I’ve always liked the imagery.

The penultimate song on the EP is “Letters From the End of the World,” and this would be the “rocker” of the bunch by default because the others are so mellow. I name check my friend Kevin Dziuba’s band “Check Your Morals” in the first verse. When I think about the end of the world, I wonder if some other beings come after us, will they hear the songs, read the books, letters, and graffiti on the walls and understand who we were, or will everything get lost? It is pretty abstract, but it was really interesting to think about trying to figure out who we are now solely by the art. Will it all hold up over time? Who knows.

“Writing Our Own Eulogies” sort of follows the idea of “Letters,” but it’s a more personal “how will I be remembered?” We all have our own ideas of who we are and what we are doing, but I wanted to write about making the best of the time we have because we all want to be remembered for our positive accomplishments, which isn’t always easy. People can be petty and judgmental and it is unfortunate but people love to drag people down. The idea of not being remembered, or remembered for the right reasons honestly scares the shit out of me, and that is what the song is about. While it is extremely morbid, we have all had the late night, deep, heart-to-heart conversations about everything from ex-girlfriends to our own mortality and this song came out of one in particular.

I spent a lot of time debating whether or not to release these songs now, with releasing the next Seventh Son record this summer, but in the end I wanted these songs to be heard, and I wanted them to be heard now. Our super fan, Nick Passell, said, “its a good appetizer to what will hopefully be a great entrée” and that was the point. Its not supposed to be groundbreaking, its not supposed to sound perfect, it is just a few simple, yet powerful songs that I wanted to sing in a raw, live format. For most of the songs, the vocals were recorded directly with the guitar, in order to get that live feel. While I know this isn’t the high-energy rock sound that people are used to from me, I really wanted to record these songs for me because I felt I needed to sing them at this moment in time. That being said, I am very proud of this project, and I hope you all enjoy it!

You have to make your own luck – so I did.

“Luck” can be found on Bandcamp.

The sun is shinning and that Friday feeling is upon us again! So, let's put our classics on and have a little dance shall we?! 

Today it is The Chemical Brothers and their track 'Saturate'

This hook-tastic track never fails to make me feel good and want to go out and get on it! The Brothers Chemical certainly know how to get a 'drop' in and this has many a 'drop'! It's a feel good dance tune that will always be on my Ipod, believe!

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!

A very happy Friday to you all!! 

Well, Tune of the week is upon us once again!

I only heard this tune yesterday, thanks to the wonderful House in the Sand blog. You know, the ones that review great music and have kindly been supporting me for over a year.

*Check my reviews HERE*

Anyhoo, todays track titled 'Northern Lights' is by Ryan O'Reilly and is hauntingly beautiful. A slow piano track that builds to wonderfully euphoric choruses. O'Reilly's vocals are smooth, beautiful and full of emotion. Like I say a wonderful track!

You can check the proper review, by people that are good at it (!) HERE

Be sure to check Ryan O'Reilly out as he is a man with real talent, believe!

I'll be 'aving that!

Brothers and Sisters!

How do?! 

I just listened to Noel Gallaghers B-Side track "Leave my guitar alone"...and my did I have a chuckle! It brought me right back to the good old days where the Chief was nicking from The Beatles as a matter of course!

Seriosuly, the song BLATANTLY streals a section from "Hey Jude" and believe me it makes no bones about it! Check it out...

Funny huh?!

I mean don't get me wrong, I actually really like the track I just find it hillarious the sheer balls of Noely G to still be doing this. It's why he's become a national treasure I reckon. I mean people seemed to love the Great Train robbers and such. They are all the type of people that say "I'll be 'aving that" and they go take it. There is something very beautiful about that!

Anyway, just wanted to share that with you. 

In other news I've been in the studio preparing for live shows by getting a ton of new songs learnt. Believe me we are sounding MEGA and there will be a lot of surprises coming your way, believe!

The Stranglers on Tour

The Band have added a date in Belfast 

The Stranglers confirm that the band will be crossing the Irish Sea for a festival appearance in Belfast at the start of May. They are playing at the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival on Friday 1st.

Bursalblaader Music & Mick Dorey

The Stranglers

Seventies punk icons whose rat-infested songs plagued both the album and singles charts through the subsequent decade. Their compounded musical talents and enthusiasm, infused with large doses of charisma and dark notoriety goes more than a little way to explaining why The Stranglers have survived the vagaries of the music business. These days The Stranglers have at their core original members Jean-Jacques Burnel (bass), Dave Greenfield (keyboards), Jet Black (drums) and Baz Warne (guitar), with the lead vocals shared between Warne and Burnel (Burnel singing the songs he originally recorded as lead vocalist, and Warne performing the numbers originally sang by Hugh Cornwell). 2010 saw the release of a new double CD retrospective, containing at least one track from each of their 16 studio albums. They also released a live DVD and album recorded at Hammersmith Apollo.

Have you heard the latest 'Sea Sick Steve album'? It's fucking mega! I've been writing loads recently and I feel a touch of old 'Stevie who is suffering from motion sickness' has seeped in a teeny bit.

Not a bad thing.

It's been a little while since I've properly chatted here, but only because I have been away writing. Writing. lots. Writing fucking lots!

I spent last weekend in a remote Mill house in the country and came up with a couple of wee ditties that I am working on and I finished of some demos over the past couple of weeks. There really is a wide selection of tunes to choose from for the next EP.

Never a bad thing!

Also, I've got The Camden Rocks gig coming up and we are doing a small tour in July so anyone want to offer us a place to play, a place to stay or wanna come out and party let me know!!

Rich Hamer & PLYMOUTH GUITAR SCHOOL

The Big Smoke for Hamer & Co!

Hamer & Co are set to perform a one-off show in London at Verdi (Royal Albert Hall) this June. The collaborative jazz band is led by guitarists Rich Hamer and Frank Hamer.

Bobby Mahoney to release digital acoustic EP "Luck" April 12

Album art by Elijah Reiss

In the first of a series of news to be released over the course of the next few months, Bobby Mahoney announced Sunday the release of his next compilation.

Luck, an acoustic EP, will be digitally-released April 12 exclusively through Bandcamp. Those who download will be able to name their own price for the album. 

"It's a collection of a few acoustic tracks I wrote over the last few months that I thought would be best showcases in a minimal, acoustic setting," Mahoney said.

Recorded in February 2015 at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey, the EP sees the return of Max Aharon as producer and engineer. Aharon served the same roles for Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son's Friends in Low Places, the full-band album released last June. The project also received assistance from Nicco DiRenzi, who appeared on a track on the previous album.

No other members of Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son appear on the record. The band will be announcing a new project shortly.

The acoustic EP will be his first solo endeavor since 2012's Delicate Fall From Grace album, which earned Mahoney a nomination for "Top Acoustic Act" at the 2013 Asbury Music Awards.

Mahoney will be playing several acoustic shows to promote the EP. Stay with BobbyMahoneyMusic.com to find out more information about upcoming shows, and follow Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son on Facebook and Twitter.

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!

It's that time of the week once more...

It's them Fab Four lot with the tune, 'Every Little Thing', from their 'Beatles For Sale' LP.

It's the shortness, sweetness and innocent...er...ness of this song that makes it so appealing and I guess was what made them as a group so appealing in this incarnation of themselves. But as always the beauty with the old Beatles is the layers to what initially appears so simple. The vocal harmonies are perfection, George's unmistakable guitar licks are so hook encrusted it's hard to shake them off and when the chorus hits you are can't help but hum along...at the very least! 

The greatest band to ever walk the face of the planet. God I love 'em, believe!

FORWARDS!!

Getting Soppy

Brothers and Sisters,

I'm feeling nostalgic. Heavily nostalgic. 

I've been watching Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds in Dusseldorf and 'The Chief', has played so many hits from his back catelogue it has given me that tingle down my spine and brought back fond, fond memories of my youth. 

Sigh.

Some of you might not remember the ninties. Shame really.

Anyway, watching this gig tonight I was reminded about the power of music and why I got into this 'game'.

In actual fact it was Noely G who got me playing guitar. 

But it is about writing songs that touch people. Writing songs that remind people of good times, youth, moments in their lives. It astounds me how a track by The Beatles can regress me back to when I was 6 years old getting ready to go visit my Nan in London. Tracks by Oasis remind me of a care free time with my mates, learning guitar, smoking weed and having massive dreams of the future. 

It's wonderful. 

I mean, three and half minutes of sound has that sort of power! It's incredible when you really think about it. 

And that's why I'm so glad I am doing what I am doing. I've not yet sold the sort of amount of records Sir Gallagher has, but when I get my royalties come in and I see people across the world have purchased my tunes it is such a good feeling - Nothing to do with the cash, because beleive me these days it's sweet fuck all - But the thought of someone in Brazil walking around listening to me on their Ipod and brightening their day or adding something to their life is quite frankly fucking awesome! What a beautiful thing to be able to do.

I still dig out songs that become a soundtrack to my life and this will forever continue until I'm playing at the big gig in the sky. And so to have someone feel that with one of my songs is humbling and beautiful and I thank you all for helping me and supporting me as I go.

That's all I have to say really. Just got a bit soppy and emotional from a great gig of someone I really admire and I thought, who better else to chat this through with than you lot, believe!!

FORWARDS!!

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters,

As I've been preparing for a mini tour, getting songs together for the next EP and continuing to play live so as I can see all your pretty faces time certainyl speeds by...it's that time of the week again! 

Today's tune is from the chief himself, Mr Noel Gallagher. Lifted from his latest album (which I am loving a hell of a lot more than his debut) this track is called "You know we can't go back" and for me is the uplifitng, sing-a-long nonsense Mr G is so very good at.

Sure, we could talk about 'Riverman' or 'The Right Stuff' and talk about a new direction, new sound blah blah blah. But as an instant, sing-along pop song, that feels like we've known it for years I don't think you can do much better than this one.

Happy Friday everybody! I'm playing at Lock 17 tonight so be sure to come down and raise a glass to my birthday. Yeah, it's my birthday on Monday so I'm celebrating tonight at the gig, beleive!

FORWARDS!!
