blow the doors off - one song at a time

A TIME...

To everything there is a season, 

and a time for every purpose under heaven:

a time to be born and a time to die, 

a time to plant and a time to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal, 

a time to break down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh

a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together

a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

a time to search and a time to count as lost, 

a time to keep and a time to discard,

a time to tear and a time to mend

a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate, 

a time for war and a time for peace

and

 

a time to play Rock N Roll...

A name

The late, great, singer -songwriter Colin Vearncombe of the band Black met Nicky Slater, in London , England. They became friends. Colin bestowed the Nic-Name. NICSTIR (pronounced nic- ster) . 'Let's write a song together" said Nicstir - "Why?" asked Colin....

 

Doing it now then - thinking fondly of a lovely man...

Because I can

Stir...

His name's NIC and he STIR"S things up. He always has one way or another,

 

And after all, if music, words and performance do not stir your soul...

 

What's the point?

DEBUT

A STEP BY STEP DOUBLE ALBUM TO BE RELEASED....

AN EPIC STORY OF LOST TO FOUND

OF BOY TO MAN

IT'S THE FIRST STEP - TO RE-INVENTION...

STEP ONE

DOUBLE ALBUM

Album One

GETTING EXCITED

"It sounds like having your wife walk towards you in a negligee carrying a six pack of beer." Said a friend responding to the title in his cowboy hat here in Canada. He's a mountain man. The air is different where I find myself.

 

The songs were written over time. The Album, except for one song finished and mastered - then re-mastered (driving the producer crazy) a year ago. But the sound was still not exactly what I was after... I have the tracks in for final treatment!

Tweaking, avoiding, everything else to do. Then another song came, a song of starting to step, a song of 'starting' to get excited sensing a possibility.

And I realised today...

I have been working across so many areas, for so long, that it is time to work on gaining support so I can work on being 'really good' at one thing...

In a former life I aimed to be best in the world. My story, I failed, I only reached fifth. Now my spirit of being the best I can be resurfaces. I need to train, to practise. Yet I am a One Man Army - there is not enough time. And I constantly write and create... Argh. The solution?

In that former life I had a Patron... I need something like that now, as I had so many years ago. So that's what DREAMTRYB is about. Because somewhere out there is you - and you'd love me to push this envelope to see how far it can go and enjoy seeing success in another. As I do...

And yes I've got tracks and we're working on more and an album 'almost' ready to share and a Christmas single that's gorgeous and I'd love to do a new video for that and An Ode to the 45th President and Characters and scripts and.. and... books to be finalised.. It's like ITV but one man doing it! Madness.

 

OK stop. Oh and a hit record would also be fine.

 

So... Everything will be developing - imperfectly here.

 

And I can't see how it will turn out. I can't see my ducks in a row... I have to risk and step.

 

Join me - let's take the LID OFF THE BOX and keep it off...

Rock n Roll.
