Looking Forward, Looking Back -- BillyC's new EP with the Moog Lap Steel

Hey there, I know this music is kinda totally out of the ballpark for most 'dobro' music, but I want to offer a free download to the first dozen people who instant message me with an email address. If you like Rock music or Fusion music, send me a message and I'll send a link and download code. 

I've been given the blessing for this by Reso-Nation members that have already downloaded this EP, for which I am grateful.  

Even though you guys/gals aren't the main audience for this kind of music, we're still each other's dobro-family, so I'd love for more of you to hear this stuff!

All the best, Billy

More on the Moog Steel.  This is a little vid made by the folks helping with the marketing of this new recording.  The EP can be found at:

There is no acoustic dobro content!  We decided to call the 'genre' Ameritronica.  If bluegrass dobro is your passion, you may not find anything of interest here, but if you like more adventurous stuff, give it a listen!

Soon to be released is a new recording I made a couple months ago with Acoustic Dobro in a jazz quartet setting.  I'm crankin' em out this year.  I've had so many sounds in my head for a while now and I've been leaving the 'comfort' of my own studio to just do the playing and work with other engineers to do the production work.  A couple more to go in 2011.

 

Some other YouTube vids up showing different sides of the new Moog instrument...

The Moog Lap Steel

Your browser is not able to display this multimedia content.

Hey guys and gals, not sure how many of you have come across this yet.  In a lucky coincidence, Moog Music has been based in my hometown of Asheville for decades.  Bob Moog is the inventor of the analog synthesizer amongst many other things, including the Theremin, etc.  Thru a live music collaboration involving Cyril lance, senior engineer at Moog, I ended up getting roped into working on the development of this new Moog Lap Steel.  It's been really really fun to work on.  This video is with prototype #2 last year at Moogfest where we told the world we were working on this thing.  I was just beginning to explore the possibilities and am still finding new 'pockets'.  The product has been finished, and I'm now playing a beautiful Walnut/Mahogany version.  I just finished an EP with this instrument as well.  At this point the distribution and marketing is being 'targeted' towards the Synth and Electronic music worlds.
