Hi folks,

Be sure to get down to the Old Hepburn pub this Saturday night 11th June Dooley's Bar for another night of hot rockn blues and classic covers featuring Steve Plater on his hand made Jack Daniels tin guitar and cigar box guitars. When Steve cranks them up through his valve amplifiers they blow the house apart and people are gob smacked when they hear him play these things. He also has on board part his own electric guitar collection.

Marion Turner on gutsey vocals and harmonica, , Nick Gunsser ''Mr Cool'' on bass and the fabulous 15 year old Rhiannon Simpson on drums!They are in the process of recording a Band CD packed full of originals and if things go according to plan release should be late may/june.If you don't get there it's your own bloody fault!!!

The Wounded Lovers


Welcome to the world of the Moriartys!  This is where you can hear the sounds, old and new from West London's finest .  Early live recordings, demos and also current recordings from T-Bone's studio will feature.  Expect lots of updates as the archives are trawled for hidden treasures and unfortunate out takes.

Moriarty contact:

We will also feature press articles and various galleries, showing the boys in action, drinking, gigging and stumbling their way around the streets of West London.  The stories of the gigs and after show sessions, the fights, the girls, the hangovers, the fallings out, and the bannings. The rise and fall, and rise again.  

And what of the members of the group?  The various line up's over the years?  The ones that walked because they couldn't stand the heat, or were given their marching orders for acting in an un - Moriarty manner.   Like most bands that have lived a life, there will of course be some casualties along the way.  Friends no longer walking this earth...and whilst they will be missed, the music goes on, as it must....

The return of the Moriartys on stage in 2011, is being discussed at their European HQ as I write.  Details will be forthcoming.

All will be revealed....this is just the start you know.  It's Maximum R + B baby!  Of course it is...

New Song: Paper Mache

Without burying the lead, let's dive right in....Here is Paper Mache. Written earlier today, I made up the melody on the way as the video rolled. One of those songs that just....happened.

I learned young to dream old
See the future for the past it holds
I can outrun the chasing clock
I will come home but you will not

There's only so much
Paint and clay and paper mache
You can pile on to hide
The pain and rage, dissapointed dismay

Too many layers and it crumbles away
Too many whole ones before this darkened day

I came too late to fall in line
The gathered mass I stand behind
I will outshine the burning fear
I can come down and still shed tears

I grew young and dreamed old
Naive enough to never know
I can't outdo the living end
I won't come round here again

Today, April 9, is the third anniversary of my nephew's death. So I did what I could with what I have to honor his life today. It eased my heart. I hope it works this way every time.

Here's to full lives, smiles, and love, my friends...

In this second digest-form installment of the Production Vlog, you'll meet engineer Kyle Collins (that's right Tenacious D fans, my production team consists of "Jack & Kyle") and find out what instruments we all played in school band!

Join us on our tour of RCR Studios in Solon. Our walk-through turned into a full-fledged session, and we ended up recording a rough live-take of "Who You Say" as well as the main guitar part.

Watch the video above to hear me try to sing full-out at noon on a Saturday, see my mini-man-hands attempting to play the same bar-chords for two hours and witness my rockin' air-guitar moves during a last-minute vocal take.

PLUS, by clicking over to our Facebook Production Diary Page you can watch an EXCLUSIVE BONUS VIDEO: the full, in-studio live take of "Who You Say!"

Cold Steel

New CD Nearing Completion

Omaha-based hard rock band Cold Steel is in the studio, mastering their upcoming CD "The Odds Are Against Us" for a late spring 2011 release.

The band has been working on the 10-track CD for months with producer Curtis Grubb (Grasshopper Takeover).  Sneak previews of the songs in progress have been released by Cold Steel via their Facebook and Twitter pages and the feedback has been tremendous.

The track order for "The Odds Are Against Us" is being finalized, and the band is in pre-production on a music video for their first single from the CD, "Fallin'". 

Special "fan-only" releases are being prepared as well, along with some special, intimate concert performances for VIPs and fans (details TBA).

Not An Island


Yesterday, while sitting in church, something occured to me. What occured to me was something I'd already known and understood but somehow realized in a new way. It was this: there is nothing more beautiful and powerful and strong, this side of heaven, than a church gathered together in love. Not a particular congregation or denomination but the church at large, the international church. As humans, we were made for community. We were made to nurture close relationships and thrive in them. And in this thriving we learn how to love God and one another. If you're feeling frustrated, defeated, or perhaps lonely, make an effort to plug in to the church body. You will be encouraged and lifted up. And you'll understand once again that you are not alone. You are not an island.

Loner's Junction

Roads in life. Obi's ParaMed Program Halts LJ

Hello Fans and folks and  people from around! We often chose different roads in life and those roads take us to many places, opening doors, and closing some too...Well, My good brother, and co founder of our Group is an EMT and is now ready to enter the paramedic program whicj will keep him from Musical activities for a good while! We are sad to say Loner's Junction is more than likely to not be perrforming for at least over a year! We have totally enjoyed playing and blessing people with our music! I on the other hand, will continue playing as I can, and hopefully as a full time occupation if thats where I feel the leading.

 THANKS for being a fan and reading this! God bless! cheers, -gabe the fiddler

A whirlwind that has taken hold...

These last few weeks have been an explosion; a whirlwind that has taken hold of creativity and whipped it into a wild, tangled mass of focus and fervor. Just as I set the Kickstarter Campaign into motion, a project that had been looming for almost a year finally came around, got really awesome, and happened! Poof! Came and went.

A while back, my sister-in-law dropped my name to a friend who was in a tribute project that lost a singer. That tribute was to the late, great, and posthumously-famed Jeff Buckley. The previous singer had hurt his voice throwing himself into singing Buckley's work and decided he'd better not chance it (considering he has other projects to sing for.)

So with Ron Mominee, Rodger LaVallee, and Derek Kerswill, I am now singing and playing guitar for what has blossomed into a full fledged tribute band. Not just a one-off. Peyote Radio Theatre will be a regular thing. The name comes from Jeff's first promotional EP/demo which had 3 tracks (Mojo Pin, Kangaroo, and Dream Brother). He also used the title for his business entity and all of the bands gear had "Peyote Radio Theatre" stenciled on the cases.

I've said all that to set up the retelling of the rehearsals and the show that followed. These guys are pros. They've had 10 years and more to refine their skills. That wonderful story of "he started playing at the age of 6," and so on...that's these guys. So I was nervous to show my own skills. But once I got behind that mic and my guitar, it all happened like some wonderful scene in a movie. Lots of shared looks that said "wow. damn, guys. this is great." Two rehearsals. Just two. With lots and LOTS of cramming to comprehend Buckley's chords and progressions and skill-stretching vocals.

Then, March 26 happened. The big show. No nerves. Not until I got on that stage and realized that it was real. Although it still plays back like dreams do when you remember them the next morning - foggy, out of order, and full of tricks of the mind and impossibilities. Several people were video taping though, so there is proof! We were there. It happened, really!

My cheat sheets were slipping off the stand. Here, I'm about to throw the rest up in the air.

A couple times Derek looked over at me with a face-wide grin and said "Dude...where did you come from?" It's comments like that that'll give a man a massive egos, buddy. Ease up. Then Rodger, a couple times into the microphone, "Dave. Your awesome," with the audience roaring approval. And me, most likely blushing, definitely shaking my head, and telling everyone (in my mind) to "shut up! ...nuh-uh!"

...All the time I was working on Buckley's music, I was watching my Kickstarter funding climb higher and continuously asking support of and thanking people left and right.. Here we are two weeks down with 3 more to go, and I'm at 38% - Shocked by the generous pledges and all the support in general, (links being shared all over the place.)

I've been thinking ahead about this recording project and some great ideas are coming up. We'll see how much of it can be accomplished. And it all still hangs on whether or not I reach my funding goal! The pressure is on. It's going to be a long few weeks but I'm ready.

So much positive energy in and around me. Friends touring again. New EPs and projects. Constant mutation and transition; migration and transformation. I look forward to looking forward some more.

See you somewhere up the road.
