Michael, it’s been a while. What have you been up to since the last production of Tess?
Where to start! I’ve moved and been decorating and renovating as well as clearing the garden and –
I meant with Tess…
Oh, soz. Well, funny you should ask, but I’m in the middle of a new project.
Oo, do tell. It is a d’blog, you know.
I’ve been working on a new structure, arrangement and backing to ‘In My Hand’ – the main song from the show. Things are taking shape nicely, though there’s a long road ahead.
I’m producing it myself.
During the Covid years, and being in times of forced isolation, I started to learn how to produce music.
Thanks, I’m going to need it. There’s so much to learn and get my head around, but if this recording goes well there could be more to come.
New structuring and arrangements of other songs and maybe in time a complete backing to the whole show.
Somebody likes a challenge…
So they say.
A little bird tells me you were planning a new stage production when Covid struck.
That little bird is right. A 4-week tour too.
Couldn’t agree more.
So come on, who’s going to be singing this new version of ‘In My Hand’? Is it Sunim? He did sing some mezzo-soprano backing vocals on ‘I Always Get My Way’.
So I heard…! But no, it’s not Sunim.
Wait and see. I’m recording her vocals in December and delighted to be working with her. She’s lovely.
Tease. I guess we can follow your progress on Twitter, Instagram and all good social media outlets in the coming months to see how it’s all going?
You took the words right out of my mouth.
I’m known for it. And good luck again with the production work.
I do still have Sunim’s number, you know…
Michael Blore was in conversation with Tess administrator Scott Collins.
Thank you for reading and following the progress of TESS.
Feel free to leave a comment. We’d love to hear from you.
