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.

The first album of original music by Blue Morris, "Unlikely Rockstars," will be released September 17th!
We are throwing an album release party in which we will perform all the music from the album (and much more!) on Saturday September 17th at the Anza Club.
Buying a ticket gets you a free copy of the CD plus a download code to download high-quality MP3s. The CDs with download codes can only be picked up at the venue on the night of the show.
The album has ten original songs and was produced by Red Heartbreaker. The music has a vintage folk-rock vibe, loaded with sweetly driven guitars, thick vocal harmonies and vintage organ. Each song tells a story about regular Vancouver people who are all unlikely rockstars in their own ways.
The band features the same talented people you see Blue performing with on a regular basis:
- Red Heartbreaker - guitar, backing vocals
- Alex Kelley - bass, keys, backing vocals
- Eric Rasmusson - drums
- Franki Lemon - cello
After September 17th the album will be available on CD, iTunes, Bandcamp, and many other such digital places.

I'll be playing guitar with Elza at Studio Records in Vancouver again this July! The date is July 21st and this time we will be the headlining act.
I've been playing with Elza for about a year now and the band is getting really tight. All the music and lyrics are written by Elza. The band includes two guitars, cello, bass, drums, keys and of course Elza on vocals.
You can hear her music on Bandcamp. We will be playing all the songs from her "Glories" EP plus some new songs that have yet to be recorded.
The doors are at 8pm but I think we will be on around 9.30pm or 10ish. Hope to see you there!
