Amy Krebs Magical Mystery Tour Side B

Amy Krebs Performs the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour Side B

In June I hosted a livestreamed concert from my studio featuring Los Angeles singer-songwriter Amy Krebs along with my friends Keith “Stix” Mc Jimson (drums), Leo Budirahardjo (bass), and Jeff Aulich (guitar), and me on keyboards, as part of a series hosted by veteran songwriter Mike Viola, in which each concert in the series re-created one side of a classic Beatles album, chosen at random out of a hat. Our assignment: side B of Magical Mystery Tour. The show took place on June 4 on StageIt.com, and was recorded and is now being released today on iTunes, Amazon, and other fine resellers.

The show was a fun and challenging project to put together. First, I worked on re-arranging the songs to fit Amy’s style. Then, we rehearsed the band in the studio to flesh out the arrangements more and polish the performance. Then, there was the technical feat of mixing live to the internet, while monitoring ourselves in in-ear monitors. The StageIt platform provided a unique venue, as fans were able to buy tickets in advance, tune in at showtime, and converse with us via text chat during the show.

Here’s some audio clips of the five songs from the EP:

 

I’ve previously worked with Amy on two previous songs (Move On and Story).

ICYMI: 1 of my most popular #choral arrs ever is this SAB of Pierre Passereau's playful Il Est Bel Et Bon (16th century). Traditionally 4-part SATB, Perfect for emerging choirs to tackle vocal technique & part independence. #choir

New from me: what is going on with @Adobe, @Dropbox, and the future of online #privacy? It concerns every one of us:

I think it’s safe to say when Instagram tries to launch their nth new feature copied from another rival platform, their chances of success now become 1/n.

An interesting comment in light of the fact that the work of millions of human creators has been vacuumed up by OpenAI without consent or compensation.

Happy birthday to this dude (@aaronscottlazar) who is working on a project of a lifetime in the middle of a battle of a lifetime and is making everyone stronger for it. Thank you for being in my life bro and so glad we get to make some magical music together. @youralsnetwork
