Rick Keene Music Scene; Harry Manx Talks New Album ‘Faith Lift’. Part Two

 Harry Manx enjoys seeing things fresh.

The big picture. The whole deal is what Harry listened to when he returned to his back catalog  and revisited some of his own songs. Different times in life can evoke different feelings.

Harry decided to rework or re-chart some of the ‘ancient’ tunes and add them to a string section. Or – add the string section to the tunes. Either way, a ‘Faith Lift’ is what occurred on his latest album.

Please listen below to my chat with Harry. We talk about a couple of guitarists, The Blues and the new album ‘Faith Lift’.

 

 Thanks for listening. Chat soon …

Rick Keene Music Scene; Bryan Ferry’s Guitarist, Canada’s Guitarist and Some ‘News’ .

Once North Korea and The United States finish blowing us all up – what will be left ?

Music …

 

 

One way or another, tunes will remain.

Maybe recordings played on a generator- hooked- up -to -a- CD player will navigate the puffs of radiation circling the globe. Perhaps, mutants will create rhythm by banging each other on the side of their heads in an effort to ‘have some fun …’ A new breed of ‘Metal Heads’. 

 

 

In the meantime, please listen below to some of the things coming up in Montreal as well as on Rick Keene Music Scene.com . Hear some new tracks and relive the past with some oldies but goodies.

Thanks for listening. Chat soon …

 

 

 


Rick Keene Music Scene – Six Songs You Can’t Say on Televison ( or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Benny Hill ).

George Carlin knew the deal. Somehow he knew how the rich control the media and in return – the media control the masses. 

Disguised as a ‘news story’ – the real goal is to send patrons to an establishment or buy a product. Anyone who ‘helps’ – gets free ‘meals’.

Same thing with music. 

Buy advertising and just like that, your music is on the playlist. Have a cousin who works for the media outlet? Next thing you know – headlining a major festival is on the itinerary.

 

 

Please listen below to six  songs that will never be heard on the rad … er … television.

Unless ….

A Preview of Chris de Burgh’s New Album and What’s Coming .​.​.

As for the Chris de Burgh …. he’s just doing his best …

 

Chris_de_Burgh2015_web-Kopie-620x350

 

Chris de Burgh has certainly been around. From relative obscurity in the 1970’s globally to a global superstar in the 80’s, back to relative obscurity commercially in the new millennium.

de Burgh’s latest album is a masterpiece – musically.

In this a day and age of so many smoke and mirrors in the music industry, de Burgh’s latest body of work, sure to be lost in the iPod shuffle. A shame …

Starting with the title track, Hands of Man is part throwback with the sounds of Patricia the Stripper and part commercial with the sounds of Lady in Red. In between, it is just a very good record. Crisp production work brings de Burgh’s vocals and keyboards to the forefront.

Please listen to a preview of the album below. Please listen to some masterful tracks from the album Hands of Man, due out March 3rd, 2015.

Thanks for Listening!

Harry Manx; The Truth ….Twenty Strings or Not !

If a musician releases a CD which is 80 percent instrumental – a certain confidence must be present. If said musician plays an instrument which is not ‘accepted’ commercially and releases the same CD; confidence reigns supreme.

Confidence and inner peace …

Such is the case with Harry Manx.

A world traveler who appears to have discovered his inner being and a love for music somewhat foreign in nature. Foreign to a North American audience audibly perhaps yet as close to the soul as music can be.

Please listen as Harry Manx explains his inner peace as well as what his travels have taught himmusically and spiritually.

It’s about 20 Strings …

and the Truth !
