I know Mike O’Brien through the guys in the Key-Lites, they’ve been friends for many years. Mike is a fantastic guitarist, and an even more fantastic guy. I first heard him playing with Katie Moore a couple years ago at the Outremont Theatre in Montreal. Every note he played was tasteful and musical. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to play with him a few times (including in an exciting, upcoming country band featuring many of Montreal’s best musicians – stay tuned!), and get to know him a bit. He happens to really know his beer – whenever I’m at Vices & Versa and he’s working, I basically just ask him what I should drink, and it’s always great.
I knew Mike’s voice-over skills from the Key-Lites pitch video, and I was very excited when he agreed to lend his voice for mine, too. I believe he is a huge factor in the success of my Indiegogo campaign to date. So we decided to put together a short film about Mike that was thematically in line with the pitch video. Thanks Mike!
A little Indiegogo update
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to and shared my Indiegogo campaign! There is just under two weeks left, and I still need to raise about $2,000. If you haven’t already, I urge you to contribute, you won’t regret it! If you’ve already contributed, please share the campaign with others.
As an additional incentive, I’ve decided to pad some of the perks. The Book of Sheet Music will now include all the compositions from my first album, Joel Kerr Quintet, as well as my two pieces from Live in Silence. This means there will be eighteen pieces included in the book! This perk is available on its own, or included in others. Order it now!
