The Billy Sea - promo vid

Hello RN friends, I'd like to share a lil promo video for one of my projects, The Billy Sea.  It was made as part of an electronic press kit of sorts, so it's not a straight up performance video.  

The Billy Sea has almost wrapped up their first release, a CD and a video DVD.  We've been evolving the idea a bit and are adding one more tune with vocals to the 'album', some of that is featured towards the end of the vid.  We'll be out and about a bit in 2013!  (If any of y'all are diggin this and have a sec for commenting on YouTube, it helps us for promoters to see that there are folks interested out there).

I hope everyone's having a happy and safe Holiday season.  Lotsa Love from Western NC. 


Billy Cardine -- Six String Swing

I'd been thinking about this for a while and it came together earlier this year (2012).  The sessions really couldn't have been any more enjoyable.  It was a pleasure to spend time working on this with Grant Gordy on guitar (Dave Grisman Quintet), Josh Pinkham on tenor guitar and mandolin (Frank Vignola Band), and the Page Brothers from WNC...Andy on guitar (director of Jazz @ App State) and Zack on Bass as well as a few special guests.   

So, the name "Six String Swing".  Yes, I talked with Mike about it  ;-)  Mike was my first teacher and certainly one of the main reasons that I love the dobro and continue to play it to this day.  The Eight String Swing record got wore out at my house, and since I grew up playing jazz piano, I always wanted to put together some music like this.
