Home On The Midrange -Jamie Stillway & Eric Skye
 
Here's a link to several options for streaming, downloading, and even buying CDs of the new album I made with Jamie Stillway.
https://jamiestillwayericskye.hearno...n-the-midrange

It's a collection of original flatpicked reels and waltzes, featuring pretty much constant down-rabbit-hole improvisation on two acoustic guitars. I hope you enjoy it even just a fraction as much as I enjoyed playing these tunes over a few mornings last spring with Jamie :)

Great Stuff
 
This is great stuff. Iíll spend the evening with this album and some green, recreational herbs.

I really hear some David Grier influences on this one.

Thanks for sharing.

Typically lovely playing by both of you. Brings to mind your statement elsewhere that you pretty much never listen to your own recorded music. I'm not 1% of the musician you are and I still listen to my own personal recordings from time to time - if I could play like you do, I think I'd be listening a LOT! In any case, I'm glad I'm able to listen to your music.

Ha!
And yup, I'm a big Grier fan.

Great album. I just discovered Jamie via YouTube (guitar lessons for introverts video) then saw the duo videos. The playing on this is superb! The phrasing is articulate and lively. Bravo!

Oh thank you so much. No videos for The Watershed yet. Thatís definitely on the to-do list.

I donít know how interesting any of this is; but the four tunes that are mine are inspired by Bucks County Pennsylvania where I grew up. I got to go back there and visit for a house concert a number of years ago, and took my sister, Kathryn, with me to see where we grew up. Wasnít long after both of our parents had passed so it was rather poignant. Anyway at one point she went into town by herself and I just played by the river into my phone for a few hours. Couple years later when I had to switch phones I found those of us voice memos files, and basically all four of the songs were just there..

Jamie's Tune, Don't I Know You?, she said, popped out, but she thought she recognized the chord progression, so she kept thinking, "don't know you?"... I really love playing that tune of heres. If I do say so myself, I really like the Youtube video we put of that one right before shutdown..
