The Broken Creels will be supporting Aberdeen’s legendary guitarist Gerry Jablonski and his Electric Band on Saturday night (Saturday 3rd June 2023) at Aberdeen’s Cafe Drummond’s. The band have had a run of shows there now and are starting to slowly build some momentum and interest in what we are all about.
Hope to see you there, tickets can be bought below..
It was a funny one as it consisted of songs from two separate sessions.
Three of the songs came from a session in 2008 that was going to be an album called ‘Torn Between Two Everyrhings’, overall we did 8 or 9 full band songs and decided to keep ‘Good for something’, ‘Into my Garden’ and ‘Peace in my mind’.
However, i put them on the back burner to go out and play live as much as i could as I wasn’t vocally ready or good enough to sing those songs at that point.
The other session was held in Signature sound studios (San Diego) sometime in January 2010. Myself, James Hood & Enrique Platas went in with Alan Sanderson to record 10 songs, completely live and acoustic, just like we had been playing the pubs and clubs of Southern California at the time!
The album was mixed in two sessions, one at The Way studio in London (August 2009) and the other at Hyde Street studios in San Francisco (February 2010) It was mastered at Universal studios some time in March or April 2010 and released 10th May 2010.
It was such a great learning curve and wonderful experience…thanks to all that were involved in it!
I’m delighted to announce my one and only solo show for the year in my hometown of Aberdeen Scotland at historic venue The Blue Lamp on the 10th of November 2023. The ‘Lampie’ truly is one of my favorite venues in Scotland and it’s always a wonderfully intimate and special night there.
“…A bold arrangement of pounding drums, dynamic guitars and Clyne’s rich vocals, ‘Friend or Foe’ sweeps you up in a sonic swirl twirling you about with kaleidoscopic lights floating about you…and you love every second!…”
I’m looking forward to performing at this years Tartan Heart Festival. I’ll be performing on The Free Range Acoustic Stage on the 29th of July at 3:45pm, you can’t beat a lovely mid afternoon gig under a boat….yes, the stage is an upturned boat, which after many years of being at Bella I’ve never noticed…..Where The Ships Go To Die anyone?
Belladrum truly is both mine and my family’s favourite Festival!
Thanks to The Press and Journal’s Scott Begbie for the excellent write up on my new single ‘Wishing Winter Away’, especially highlighting the wonderful involvement of Paul Anderson Scottish Fiddler on the project.
The article also highlights Aprils London (with Talentbanq) & Stonehaven (URBAN Project ZEE’S Stonehaven) gigs.
I’m delighted to announce that I’m currently working on a new single (more details in the link below). Despite the current complexities of everyday life that is 2021 we are working hard to get single out as soon as feasibly possible.
The intention is to bring the single out complete with a wonderful accompanying music video by Aberdeen based filmmaker.
In order to make this intention a reality, I truly need YOUR help in funding this process. I have created a GoFundMe page (link below) and I come to you cap n’ hand that you may help realise this vision.
