An East meets West, folksy version of Apocalyptica's tune Sea Song from their 2015 album, Shadowmaker! This was a ton of fun to record.
I am playing acoustic guitar, in addition to chimes with my elbow. With my left foot, I am playing Moog Taurus bass synthesizer pedals (in this video, using my Minitaur with Studiologic controller), and ankle rattle. With my right foot, I am switching between a Meinl BassBox and a wood block. Everything with the one man band is recorded live off the floor, including the vocals.
Lea's strings were obviously tracked individually, as she has yet to have cloned herself. Next video I do with her, however, will utilise clones.
Bio: Known for his “amazing and diversified talent” (Velvet Rope Magazine) and his “indomitable stage presence” (The Ontarion), Samuel “Sammy Duke” Dlugokecki is a skilled multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and two-time Canadian Juno-nominated session performer. In 2013, he began experimenting with a one-man-band configuration for “[h]is lyrically thoughtful world-folk-fusion sound…similar to the soft voiced spiritual richness of Craig Cardiff and Bruce Cockburn, melded with the breathy vocals of late father-son songsmiths Tim and Jeff Buckley.” (Coral Andrews). Sammy has performed in venues nationwide, and has both intrigued and inspired audiences each time.
Special thanks to Lesley Gartner and Jeffrey Pike for helping me fund this project, as well as my EP!
