Time to Relax and do some practising in Devon

Im in Devon for a week πŸ™‚ enjoying the country side and its creative inspirations. Here is a tune that is quite fitting for these peaceful moments in time,

Time To Relax by Little Thoughts

Last night I was messing around playing along to some of my favourite tunes and starting building ideas for recording this weekend. I ended up playing for 3 hours into the late night!

Sax in my Studio in Devon

Sax skills are essential for a healthy and positive Saxual adventure!

Ive been practicing my high notes.. being able to smoothly run up into the Altisimo register with finesse and keeping tone and energy.

Candy Dulfer is one of my great inspirations for her control and her ability to make each note sound so special and full, I was playing along to her last night, Look at her video πŸ™‚

One Roots Gigs are going really well!!

One Roots Played the Bedroom Bar in Shoreditch, London. Playing an hour set we started out with Inka one of our E.P tracks, it felt as if everyone was adjusting to the fact there was a live band as we were the only live band of the night- and i think we were also adjusting to being the performers (sometimes its a shock to the system getting up there and making such LOUD noise!), by the end of the song everyone had loosened up and the crowd came forward towards the stage. Before we knew it everyone skanking and the crowd was head banging to the dub rock breaks!Β We played a total of 10 tracks finishing with our most Ska track ‘What have we done’ , this always finalises the set with a bang and leaves the crowd wanting more. We did not have time for an encore but reminded the crowd they can see us in 2 weeks at The Magic Garden Pub, Battersea .

One Roots are confirmed for Small World Festival! in Kent. This is a really nice small festival which hosts some of the best musicians in the country, from jazz, gypsy, swing, psychedelic rock, reggae and loads more. They are also a stage which travels to larger well known festivals such as Secret Garden Party , Glastonbury and so on.

There are many exciting things in the pipeline for One Roots, so keep and eye and out and we shall keep you posted!
