EPISODE #340 is live with Marcus Gilmore (@drumslams)
Marcus Gilmore is a decedent of drumming royalty. His grandfather is the great Roy Haynes and for most people that’d be a cross to bear..
Marcus was never intimidated by his grandfather’s presence though and was inspired to make his own name.
Over the years his initiative has proven effective and Marcus has create a career for himself, evolving into one of the most recognized jazz drummers in his own right.
Link to the interview is in my bio.
Discovered this amazing restaurant in Daphne, AL called Boudreaux's Cajun Grill. Reminds me of New Orleans. Everything is fantastic and the sunsets over Mobile Bay are stunning!
As a producer I have seen fellow producers be stingy with thier sounds. I'm not saying share the sounds you just dropped cash on. If you have sounds that you know you you're not using give those to a homie or someone you believe in. If you know about and hacks in the game spread that knowledge to the people that need it.
Share your studio and producer connects. If you are known for having high quality mixes and high quality beats share that info.
You will become a boss because sharing makes you a reliable source and a point of contact. "Each One Teach One"😎
Music teacher dad’s heartfelt tribute song lands him record deal
Mark and Maia pictured together, Picture: Central Beds Council Archant A music teacher who works in Biggleswade with Central Bedfordshire’s Inspiring Music service has landed a five-year deal with an American publishing and licensing firm thanks to a song he penned in memory of his daughter. Mrk plays live with various bands in the Bedfordshire area. Picture: Trev Earl
Mark Ayles, who is currently working with special needs schools in Biggleswade, Dunstable, Houghton Regis and Kempston, wrote the song ‘You Should Be Here’ as a way of paying a heartfelt tribute following the death of his young daughter, Maia.
He originally recorded a version to be played at her memorial service, but it has since been rerecorded with well-known local artist Denny McCaffrey taking on the vocals while Mark plays piano along with music friends from local bands
Now that version, which was recorded in 2013, has been picked up by Music Of The Sea, which is based in Chicago and Los Angeles and provides music for film, television, video games and for big-name artists to re-record.
Maia was born in 1999, but she had a very rare congenital condition which affected her muscles and her breathing. She was at Great Ormond Street Hospital for two-and-a-half years, cared for by her mother, Moana, and Mark. Then she went home with the help of a 24-hour care team from Bedford – where the family lived together until Maia passed away in 2003.
Mark said: “After Maia died I wasn’t in a very good place for a couple of years, but then I started delivering music sessions at the Ridgeway School in Kempston in 2005, which was Maia’s school when she got back to Bedford, and then in 2006/07 I wrote ‘You Should Be Here’. He continued: “At the time, it was purely a tribute to Maia. Her mum is from New Zealand and she went over there to bury Maia’s ashes with her grandad’s. I wasn’t able to go so I recorded a version of the song with me singing to play at the service. “What I want to stress is that although it started as a tribute song http://crwd.fr/2B8j21A
2017 was a great year, I learned myself. I found peace some days, and found challenges on others. I found confidence in NY, after I habitually got my ass kicked by everyone I met with , but I eventually secured the venue. This year was beautifully tough I went through a lot emotionally, but I appreciate all obstacles 🙏🏿.. Btw I hit 100 followers on Spotify, so I'll drop a new song soon (CLICK the link in my bio). And I'll b Re-posting my favorite pictures from 2017 till 2018. 📸: @visionsbymg
