Title: Growth

I’m always amazed at the places in this world that you can find a tiny bit of life growing in the gloom. A tribute to that ideal.

Inspired by the music of Mike Oldfield, in particular the song “The Bell” from Tubular Bells II – one of my very favorite Oldfield songs of all time. Here is the clever video that was released along with the album. It’s a mighty fine piece of modern composition with an unbelievable depth that we’ve come to expect from Mike. I think the narrative in the song is clever too…each instrument has it’s place, as it should be.

    Very Nice! I also loved your guitar in your “Stained Glass Window” video. I posted it on my (Judy Tolle) Facebook page. Great Music! And what a pretty guitar!

  • Oh thanks Judy, glad you enjoyed it. That bass is a lot of fun to play and take to shows, such a bizarre instrument.
