Posted on March 26, 2009 by Bob Merrick
Sorry things have been so quiet here the last few days, I was up in San Francisco on business (non-DG related). But with that said, I stopped by the studio yesterday to see how things were going with the recording bootcamp and am excited to report back what I found! First off, I missed some of the others, but while I was there, I got to watch Kaleigh Jo and Kasey working on their songs and they were so insanely talented that I had chills listening to them sing. Kaleigh Jo has a song on her myspace right now called "My Smile" and I definitely recommend a listen! http://www.myspace.com/kaleighjokirk. Also, check
out Kasey's songs over at http://www.myspace.com/kaseyiaeger. They are currently in the studio working with Deborah on some new original music and to call it impressive is an understatement. I am always amazed at how a young heart can sing the from the depths of an old soul when given the opportunity.
The typical set list I perform will vary according to the venue and audience. This could include;
My original songs:
Keep On Climbing
Kaleigh Jo Kirkinaround
Happy Birthday - Theme appropriate
I accompany myself on the acoustic guitar & piano or with professionally produced track.
Covers are typically Country, Pop, & Musical Theatre.
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
