This is the story of Bob.
For over a month and a half, Bob had been desperately seeking to sublet his apartment so that he wouldn’t have to pay the rent while away recording his new album. He wasn’t really getting anywhere, until one day he received an email from a nice british man, his name was Josh, who was ready to take the room! Bob was happy but wary of the possibility that this could all be a ruse! Josh then told Bob that his mother had now died, and even called Bob only to burst into tears and hang up! Bob sympathized for Josh and when he finally received the cheque for the deposit it seemed all was working out perfectly!
While at the bank, Bob insisted the tellers cheque the validity of the cheques, better safe than sorry as they say! But as the confirmation came in, it became clear: it was a fraud. This nice british man wasn’t so nice after all, he was trying to get Bob to deposit a cheques with a lot more than was due to him, only to be asked to transfer the money back to a third party.
Phew! It’s a good thing those guys at bank are so clever! Bob would have lost 2500$!
As you may have guessed at this point, Bob was me. I admit that I feel silly to not have figured it out earlier, but though I had suspicions that it was a ruse, I fell for their trap. It is unfortunate that there are such people in the world so dishonest as to do such things. And though I was fortunate to figure it out before it was too late, not everybody can be so lucky.
Be careful people!
On a totally different note, I will be leaving for Toronto on May 8th to begin recording my next record. I will be working with Producer Ben Pelchat over the next two months, and we will be posting tons of studio video blogs, as well as try out a possible new live streaming feature. So keep an eye out for some sneak peeks of the new songs all along the way!
To this, I leave you to ”The Edge”, one of the 6 songs we performed at the Live Lounge on April 15th. You can find the entire show on my youtube channel!
Music. Live. Forever.
As I sit here writing under a blanket, I can see the first snow storm of the year make it’s way to my window. It is now 2011, and like many I am back in school, reflecting on the past years’ accomplishments, as well as on the goals to set and accomplish for this year, and decade to come.
With a new year comes new band members, and with this I am happy to say that Kira Montfort will be joining us on drums! I am very excited to have her join us, and we will be playing shows very soon, so keep checking back for show dates in AND out of Ottawa!
On January 21′st I will be returning to Montreal for a second round of filming with my cousin Yann. We will be shooting a video for Forgotten, the second single off my debut EP Fragments of Fiction.
I will also be posting cover videos for you all to enjoy, and giving out some free music very soon!
Please leave any comments of ideas for the music video! Any feedback is appreciated, and don’t forget that you can download a free copy of my first single Cold in the freebies section! I will be taking it down in the coming week, so make sure to get it while it’s there!
Music. Lives. Forever.
Tons of great stuff happening, but first I wanted to mention this great movie called ”The Age of Stupid”. It’s the story of what we will become, and where we are going as a species if we continue to destroy our world. Go check it out @ http://www.spannerfilms.net/ which also features other incredibly enlightening movies. I strongly urge you all to check it out!
As I’m already well into loosing my sanity over the writing of this next Record, I must admit it is coming along quite well. I’m well into the third new song, and I think when this is all finally complete, it just might blow your socks off. And by socks I mean shoes included (assuming you are wearing some).
I am also working on a project with a fantastic local singer (originally from Toronto however) Kaleigh Watts. I’m going to be producing her debut EP (due out mid-next year?) and I’m really excited to see what it becomes. We’ll be putting up some demo’s on her (to-be) myspace page when we have some, so keep an eye out!
On a different note.
It is my pleasure to announce a new member of the Alexy Music family! Elizabeth Foster has blessed us with the power of her 5 string violin! She’ll be playing with us in the future, so keep an eye out for show announcements!
Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who watched the music video, and helped spread the word so well as to get 500 plays in less than a week and a half! Keep spreading it, word of mouth is key! Lets get it up to 1000!
(You can see it in the ”media” section!)
More on all of that to come soon, and possibly a big announcement? Only time will tell .
Music Lives Forever.
