A few weeks ago I got to play guitar for a video by Elza. We had a film crew come to my Vancouver studio to film her cover of the Cranberries "Zombie." I'm playing acoustic guitar on the track. Elza wrote the arrangement. I'm pretty impressed with what this film crew did.

A new live video is up. We're playing another one of my original songs from the Unlikely Rockstars album. This is "Love Love Love You."
We recorded this at the Anza Club in East Vancouver.

I have completed the first draft of my novel, Sonara: The Future of Music. It took me about ten weeks to write the 88 thousand words.
I'm going to take a short break from it before I start a second draft. But I thought I'd make this public now. I've only told a few people up until now.
SONARA: THE FUTURE OF MUSIC
In the future, music becomes so unfashionable that a whole generation grows up without ever hearing a song. Everything changes when a young woman discovers a secret museum full of musical instruments, a turntable, and a box of records.
Who is the mysterious man who saved all these instruments and why has he kept them hidden?
With murder, mystery, and adventure, Sonara is the story of a rock band of the future.

A few weeks ago we rented out the Anza Club in Vancouver to do some rehearsing and to video a few songs. Here's the first of what I hope will be three or so.
Kryptonite is from the Unlikely Rockstars album. The lyrics are intended to capture how all of us feel at times -- totally unable to succeed at whatever it is we have to do that week.
In the video:
Blue Morris - vocals, guitar
Red Heartbreaker - vocals, guitar
Alex Kelley - vocals, bass
Franki Lemon - cello
Eric Rasmusson - drums
Thanks to Jeanette Wilkinson for helping us film this, and the Anza Club for having us film on a Sunday afternoon.
