Hi everyone! Kevin Maher here, welcome back to the Sketchbook. It has been a while since I posted a vlog and thought I would get outside and record one since it is a beautiful day. I hope you are well and able to enjoy the Spring weather. Today I am releasing the next song in the Sketchbook series, entitled Incognito. This original saxophone composition is a piece that reminds me of the dark saxophone that you might hear in an film noir Humphry Bogart – This genre of music is sometimes called sax noir… but today it’s - Maher Noir, if you will ; ) Since last month was the anniversary of my wedding the love of my life, I am dedicating this release to her, as she fills my heart and never ceases to amaze me with her kindness, and commitent to making the world a better place. Given the general theme, I also decided to have a little fun with the video just to help set the mood. This is the seventh release in this series where, over the course of a year, I am publishing a new song from my catalog, every month, for you to hear. If this is your first time here, I am glad you stopped by and I invite you to listen to the tunes that I have posted. These songs represent sketches of musical compositions that I am working to find a path to develop, record and re-envision through collaboration with musicians, engineers and producers. Releasing the music here is one step in a process that I hope will help me make those connections.
Every month there will be something new. I hope you will join me on this journey and help me by sharing and liking if you see fit. You can also go to my website and sign up for the mailing list. If you do this, I will send you a note on the day that the next new song is released.
Although I am continuing to work on my production skills, the sound quality is likely to vary between stereo systems, so If you can, do listen with headphones, because it may produce an experience closer to what I am aiming for.
Feel free to leave feedback and if you are a music professional who would like to collaborate with recording, production or any other aspect of the process, please let me know. If you enjoy it, please give me a thumbs up, subscribe and tap the bell. With that, I will let the song speak for itself. Thanks for listening and I hope you like it. Peace.
