Here are two great videos (one with roller skaters!) of me playing guitar with David Byrne, as he guests stars with The Atomic Bomb Band! The first one is from out first U.S. shows at the Brooklyn Academy of Music last spring, and the second one was when the band travelled to Acupulco, Mexico, to play the incredible Tropicó Festival. Sinkane also played the festival and we travelled all the way from Dublin 48 hours via Newark and Mexico City to get there. Enjoy!
I just got back from the first two shows of the William Onyeabor project with Sinkane. The core band was Sinkane, Money Mark(Beastie Boys), Pat Mahoney(LCD Soundsystem) and we featured special guests; Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz), Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Ghost Poet, and the Lijadu Sisters who were performing for the first time in 30 years.
It was an incredible experience getting to play with all these different musicians, and having a great support team in London made things as easy as pie.
I even get a little mention in the London Evening Standard’s review of the sold out show at the Barbican Centre.
My band, Honeyfingers, has spent the last few months working with NY guitarist, Jim Campilongo, doing arrangements of his tunes for 2 guitars and steel guitar. We are honored to play the last show of his 8 year Living Room residency on October 21st, I think this will be a special night. Here is a song from a gig at Barbés.
