First Grateful Dead show..

· The Blog

The time had come finally for me to attend my first show, by the summer of 1987 I had been well into the Grateful Dead and its little Vancouver scene for 3 years or so and I was obviously comping at the bit to finally go to what the band was most well known for, their live show. I had my stack of cassette tapes passed on by older brothers and friends so I was well versed in their music and from the few books that I got my hands on I dreamily gazed upon the 20 past years of swirly history that my soul and spirit locked onto. The images of the ’60’s and ’70’s and the tapes that played along with them became holy and religious to me. I was apart of a psychedelic musical time line with so much historical relevance and magic and this modern, western gypsy community that made up deadhead culture. In Vancouver at the time there were very few deadheads, this was a few years shy of the Touch of Grey mega dead era so for me there was this new thing that I had to make me special. I was in early high school, very much insecure and shy so when I entered the deadhead scene I felt like I had a identity, I was unique, but I still hadn’t seen a show. Being only 13 at the time there was no way that my folks were going to let me travel to the states with my older brothers, that took 3 years of begging and wining to finally make that happen.

I’m back..

Awaken I do after a major deviation with gifts! The second record has been finally completed and is here for you to listen to. I am in the process of figuring out how to make it free or by donation to download into your personal music playing devices and I also have a double CD with the first and second record together available too! It sounds best and has some cool photography by me, you can contact me and I can get one to you if you like. I have been so distracted in life in the last year… I moved 4 times, my relationship altered and continues to do so, some fairly major health issues, all this as I headed into my 40’s, things got so crazy. I became so unsure of my purpose in life beyond being a father, I was adrift, uncertain and unable to see clearly. My back pain became more of a issue, inspiration became dry and rare and my negative self image declined with my self esteem. But a special man came into my life, with 40 years of transcendental meditation behind him he became the kind voice of reason and support, helping me see the cup as half full. His name is Jim and he kind of took the space in some ways that my late father inhabited, a stable person for whom I could count on for advice, a different perspective or a laugh. I am no stranger to therapists and so often they just don’t fit, its rare to find a good one and I am truly grateful. Looking back at family of origin stuff is so amazing to me, like adding links to a chain in my brain, like pieces of a great puzzle, parts of my life start I began to deal with and process; The loss of my brother from a heroin overdose and my dads death from cancer to the birth of my two boys and how my parents raised me and how I am raising my kids. A lot of this stuff has made it out onto record number 2, its so great to be able to express my life experience in song and poetry, my music is lyric heavy, sonic poems.. Jason and I continue to play together, we have record number 3 in the works and will be going into John Raham’s studio in November to record it. The studio I moved into is great, its huge and bright, no need to move again anytime soon. This fall and winter will be busy for me, I have the above mentioned record to record, a book in the works and a photo exhibit to complete.  lots of stuff to check out from the mind of a tree shepherd.. Check out the new record on the player on my sites home page.. let me know what you think!

Something about the UBC campus gets me, the vitality of all the students, the awesome beauty of the campus itself, the feeling I get every time I go there.

Music

· The Blog

I started playing music 30 years ago this Xmas, my folks bought me a guitar not because I asked for one, but because I loved music so much. I was a card carrying member of the Kiss Army and pretty obsessed with the Rolling Stones and the Who, looking back, my fate had been sealed at a very young age. Music just did it for me, I was a lonely kid, spending a good deal of time by myself and music provided a certain something that fit inside my being, completing a circuit. The last of 4 kids, by their own admission my folks well worn even with nannies by the time I came along, but I was a quiet little fella, minding myself with an active and Read more

November 14th, 2010 Chicago epilogue.

I came out into the windy streets of this Chicago sunday morning, turned onto Michigan ave. and made my way thru the sea of football fans heading to the Bear’s game happening down a few blocks.

Quiet is the name of the game right now, the thick windows of my hotel room keep the clanging and banging of downtown Chicago to a level where my system can handle it, all I really hear is the oceanic drone of tires on wet streets, it’s calming. With my first green tea of the day down, I have already begun to Read more

I am 19 floors up in Blackstone Hotel on Michigan ave. here in Chicago, my room is safely tucked away in the corner giving me views of the lake and downtown, in all its glorious stone and brick splendor. I like a good building, and there are loads here, these monoliths that have stood the test of time thus far with many lifetimes worth of people passing by, day by day, like the Buddha mountains that Kerouac describes.

November 11, 2010, I’m on a non stop flight to Chicago, 2 sea breezes and a ativan into  my flight I decided that was going to be unable to read Kerouacs “Big Sur” due to turbulence and his wacked out, drunken ramblings that we just got minor tastes of in his previous books. Not that I dont love those rants that only he can do, i just need to have my feet on the ground to do so. I like getting places quick, but I am not much Read more

New stuff!

· The Blog

Yes, the snow is on the mountains, the days grow short.. I always have loved this time of year. We are going into the studio in December, Im pretty excited about the new batch of tunes and the way we are going to record them. This record is going to be more intimate and guitar based, I loved the last record with all its bell’s and whistles but I am going to only draw from what I have closest to me this time around. I am leaving for Chicago tomorrow to document my friend Courtenay Pollocks latest backdrop in action as it hangs behind Bob Weir and Phil Lesh’s band Furthur. He has created this amazing piece of art that resonates thru the ages, harking back to the days when his work covered the speakers or hung behind the Grateful Dead, so many moons ago. Then, on November 19th, the Tree Shepherds will ride again, playing at the Cafe Deux Soleils at 9;30. We will be playing a lot of the new tunes that will be coming out on the record in early 2011. So, lots of stuff happening so stay tuned!!

We’re back, rehearsing new tunes, gearing up the next record

· The Blog

Hey folks, we’re working towards what we hope to be a great record. Matt learned many things on the last one and looks forward to getting what he hears in his head on to tape. We’re working with the awesome John Raham again at his sweet studio, hopefully starting sometime in late November. Matt has also begun the huge task of writing his memoir, I know, he’s barely 40 but he’s managed to pack a lot of stuff into those years so stay tuned for that sometime in the next 20 years! Matt will also be in Chicago at the 2 Furthur shows as a photographer for Courtenay Pollock, who made a beautiful backdrop for the fall tour, look out for some great shots of another Courtenay masterpiece! A couple of Matt’s shots were featured in a Vancouver Sun story on Courtenay, although the shots didn’t make it on the online version.. great article though! check it out here http://www.vancouversun.com/entertainment/What+long+strange+drip+been/3716790/story.html  ..

Another great year at the folk fest here in Vancouver, we really saw so much great music over the weekend, Calexico, the Avett Brothers, Deep Dark Woods, Bob Brozman to name a few! We also gave away hundreds of our CD’s to whoever would take them and we thank you all and please feel free to make copies and give them to your friends! We want our music to go all over and we would love to know what you all think, let us know.. We apologize for the lack of contact info on the CD case, somehow that slipped our minds and this is why we scribbled all over the CD’s we gave out! Doh! On another note, Matt’s partner Lisa will be helping out with managerial duties for a while, we are so in need for someone to help us and she has graciously offered up her services. She knows and loves the music very much, we welcome Lisa to the team!

Hello friends!

· The Blog

Well, the record is done, it’s called “Qualicum” after my long lost summer home. I now have 3 boxes of CD’s sitting on the floor in the Barn, our research facility here in Vancouver. Now what, time to get out there and play. Unfortunately, the band that I put together on the CD is almost totally impossible to play cause everyone is so damn busy, so what you will see is smaller versions of the Tree Shepherd’s playing here and there. We will perform on Friday, May 21st at Cafe duex Soleil on Commercial Drive here in Vancouver. That night, besides Jay and I, Ian Lamont, Geoff Hicks, Debra Jean will be joining us as well as Terry Townson on trumpet, who did the horn arrangements as well as played on the record, boy were all in for a treat with Terry on board!! This is a special night, for it is a benefit for our friends son who has cancer, his name is Ryder and were going to have a night to celebrate his life. It’s by donation and all the proceeds will go to Ryder, his family and to the Ride to Conquer Cancer which his dad, Crow, will be doing in June. The Tree Shepherds will play first then Matt and Jay’s other band, The Other Jug Band, will play after. Please come and help us celebrate the life of Little Ryder!!
