Slept In – 1.15.2012 – Never Sorry [Arrison Kirby, R.J. Hill & Dane Hill]

Click to download the tracks:

“Moments”
“Archway”
“Valley Call”

Such is the tendency for us to put out these particularly brief, but pointed, sessions every time we skip up to the next evolution of the Never Sorry project.  It’s always a loose view of something vaguely resembling the next evolution of our sound.

“Moments” has popped up a few time in sessions past.  This is easily the best version we had done at this point.  “Archway” is a beat oriented song that we’re still developing.  The beat is recycled from Flashmob, which was recycled from my album, Part 3.  “Valley Call” was a true improvisation, and a beautiful little end to the session.

Dane Hill – bass
R.J. Hill – omnichord, auxiliary percussion
Arrison Kirby – guitar, keys, vocals

Seedlings – 3.30.2011 – Never Sorry [Arrison Kirby, Katie Collins, Megan Driscoll, Rachel Jae & Dane Hill]

“Everyone In”
“Michael in the War”
“Trimpers”

After the Pilot Light show, we reconvened the following Wednesday and went right to work on new material…which is actually old material to me.  Only these three made it to the surface.

“Everyone In” – This was just another standard Never Sorry warm up jam.

“Michael in the War” – Okay.  Last summer a storm put my power out just before dusk.  I decided to record a session, by myself, on a battery operated sound recorder.  I played acoustic guitar and sang, making it up as it went.  This song came out of that session.

“Trimpers” – I wrote this song before I really knew how to write songs, back around 9th grade or so.  Trimper’s is a real place in Ocean City, Maryland.  It’s apparently been open since 1893.  Anyway, the song ends rather abruptly due to a beer spill.  And no…it was not extra light.

Katie Collins – omnichord
Megan Driscoll –  flute, vocals
Dane Hill – bass, drums
Rachel Jae – auxillary percussion, vocals
Arrison Kirby – guitar, keys, vocals

Hello again.

My birthday was February 1st.  I initially wanted to launch this new website on that day.  Unfortunately, my girlfriend and I parted ways instead.  It took a few days to recover from that stumble.

But hey.  It’s here now.  As with the old site, you will be able to find a ton of free MP3s.  Some full length albums.  More over time as I am moved to post them.  Who knows what else will come of it?  Videos?  I don’t really know.  Everything is suddenly a blank slate in my life so let’s be in this together.

This new blog format allows something that may be of interest to people who have worked with me.  That is the search option.  Want to find everything posted that you have contributed to with me?  Type your name and read the screen.

Also, one may notice also that I am no longer referring to myself in the third person, as on the last website.  I mean, let’s call a spade a spade:  I am me.  Since no one REALLY has much to sell beyond themselves, why not just be myself (whatever that is), cut and dried?

I want to be up front.  Conversational.  Loose.   I’ve had enough science.  I want people not only to know what I do, but also who I am…or at least some of the motivations behind what I do.

I am aware things are a little thin around here right now.  That is on purpose.  I’d like for this site to be something to explore over time – not the massive burst of information that the first one was.  Don’t worry, though.  The goodies will return.

So keep checking back.  I aim to ultimately please.
