My name is Jimi Brady, and I'm a musician. I'll be using this blog to promote acoustic music and acoustic artists - signed or unsigned - as well as my own acoustic music. Feel free to submit your own original work, too. I will occasionally post music that isn't technically acoustic, but is in the spirit of acoustic music. Thank you for listening, traveler.
“I stayed in New Orleans for over a month with my wonderful girlfriend, Amanda, and I whilst there I borrowed her roommate’s ukulele (thanks, Tina!). I wrote this song and played it in the French Quarter one night. The song is not finished, so what you’ll see and hear is what I intend for the song to sound like, but this is not the final version. I mostly just improvised my various ideas between the verses. In any case, I like the way this one turned out, mistakes and all. And, as always, a huge thank-you to my girlfriend for filming!
The lyrics are a poem that I wrote by the same name. Towards the five minute mark I stomp my foot suddenly - I was trying to kill a roach that was making its way towards my bag. :)”
Light-ways and Dark-things by Jimi Brady.
I’m back in California, so I’ll be keeping this blog up to date again. Thanks for the patience.
Departure by Jimi Brady (that’s me), played in Jackson Square, New Orleans, LA.
My amazing girlfriend and camerawoman, Amanda, took this video of me playing Departure in the French Quarter. It came out really well, and this is actually the only recorded version containing both the intro and outro. Let me know what you think. :)
Another one of my songs without the vocals. Sorry for the lack of posts - I’m enjoying my three weeks in New Orleans. I might be going down to the French Quarter tomorrow to busk, and there will be video evidence.
