I'm sure many of you are familiar with Luke Brindley, who carries along with him several associations; most notably as a nationally recognized musician/songwriter, and co-owner of Vienna based music club, Jammin' Java. Much to my delight, Luke agreed to sit down with me this morning at The Barns to film a 30 minute preview for his upcoming show w/Ari Hest on November 20. We engaged in a casual Q&A for about 15 minutes, touching on topics as diverse as, but not limited to, his inspiration for lyrical content, the sonic differences between Luke Brindley Band records and his newly released solo record, and his evolving strategies for future success.
After our chat he was kind enough to stick around and perform four songs. The piece was filmed by my friend Jerry Ferguson, expert photographer, producer, and editor who will air the film on Fairfax Public Access TV, available through a Verizon Fios subscription in several Northern Virginia Counties. Once Jerry finishes the editing process, I will post a series of lengthier clips on the blog, but for now, I thought it'd be fun to share a humble recording I took from my MPEG4 camera of Luke performing "Queen of my Heart", an unreleased song you can only hear through a select handful of bootleg recordings. Catch it here by opening the video posted below. I'll have the full interview up in a week, so check back in!
