John Blek has just released his new solo album, Cut The Light. I had the great pleasure playing on the album back in February of this year in Wavefield Studios in West Cork. The album features John Blek - acoustic guitar, electric guitar, harmonium, and vocals. Brian Hassett (Hassey) - bass, Brian Casey - keys, Marlene Enright - guest vocals & yours truly on drums and percussion.
It was one of the quickest recording sessions I've ever been involved in. We tracked the whole album live in one day and then I overdubbed the percussion parts on the morning of the second day.
This album is a great collection of songs from a great songwriter. I will be going on tour with John in November for some gigs around the country. You can buy the album from all good record stores, iTunes etc or directly from John's website here: http://johnblekandtherats.com/shop/
