Catself at Songs for the Philippines benefit concert in The Hague
I'm back in the Netherlands for four weeks - and after two nice gigs in Amsterdam and Groningen I'm playing at a very special concert in The Hague this weekend: Songs for the Philippines, benefit concert in support of the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines two weeks ago.
The concert will begin on Saturday 23 November (today!) at 20:00 and will run till 20:30 on Sunday November 24th. I am scheduled to play on Sunday at 14:50 (please check again before Sunday just in case because the set times might still change slightly! I will update the time immediately on my website http://www.catself.com/ and my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/CATSELF/267103087920/ if it changes).
Victoria Moon limited edition CD (300)
After returning from our brief whirlwind tour of Scotland, Wales and England we successfully launched Victoria Moon in September. As I'm typing this, only 75 copies are still available here at TLoEH H.Q. and you can place your order directly to us at luckofedenhall.bandcamp.com or contact Clearspot at www.clearspot.nl.
This Friday October 18th, The Stream, a film featuring Rainn Wilson and original soundtrack music by Curvey opens in select cities across the United States.
I hope you will like it! If you do, it is available on Bandcamp: http://catself.bandcamp.com/track/the-journey-of-all-perfect-creatures You can download not just the mp3 but also the wav file - there is a big difference in the quality! It is the first song which I made available on Bandcamp. You can also read the lyrics there - please do if you don't understand everything in the song - there are some onomatopoeic made-up words in it!
It's been such a busy time. My debut album, which was funded on SellaBand and recorded with the accompaniment of a fantastic Polish folk band called Saint Nicholas Orchestra, is already finished and I am working on finding the best way to release it. The album is really great - I can't wait for it to be out!
But in the meantime new songs of course keep coming. "The Journey of All Perfect Creatures" is one of these new songs. I have just added it to my player here on Labtones - I wanted to move it to the top but I didn't know how to do it without deleting the songs, so it's on No. 4.
And about the video: it was filmed in Hortus Haren, a beautiful garden which is like a magic place, a bit like the Secret Garden from the novel of Frances Hodgson Burnett. There are so many beautiful places in it where you can hide away. I mainly filmed in the rock garden because it was the best place for this video, on a little hill, but there are many other places with different vegetation. It's well worth visiting! http://www.hortusharen.nl/
Ah, and about the gig. This Friday - hey, it's actually TOMORROW - I'm playing in the Hague, in a jazz bar called Murphy's Law http://www.murphysjazz.nl/, at Secret Singer-Songwriter Piano Session. It starts at 20.30, but I am one of the last performers. So, everyone who lives in/near the Hague - welcome!
