H2 News: NYC Show, Reviews, Christmas Releaseon Sep 03 in Music, Reviews, Working Life by seanharkness
You can go there at 9:00pm EDT on Tuesday and somewhere right around that time they’ll start a live broadcast of the show. You can comment with a live moderator in the room, ask us questions, have us say something to your friend’s cousin’s neighbor’s old college roommate in Auckland, New Zealand, go crazy!
Our last show as a duo was in St. John’s, Newfoundland as part of their Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues Festival. We gave a clinic in the afternoon, a concert in the evening, and a couple days later I was ‘Screeched In’ as an honourary Newfoundlander (an honour I don’t take at all lightly. It was an inexplicable ritual, but completely entertaining. And yes, I spelled honour with a ‘u’ on purpose. Part of the title….). All in all it was a wonderful journey to the Far Northeast of the continent. Great people up there, and the music was well received. More about that in another post…

H2 now has a new home in the Music Industry with the prestigious Opening Day Entertainment Group label. [We'll call them ODEG from now on. That's a lot of letters to type. Honourary Newfie or not, I'm still a lazy American. And a guitarist. Apologies....]
Anyhow, ODEG has grand designs for us, including the release of ‘Home For The Holidays’ this coming October 12th. H4TH [more lazy anagrams, sorry. It's the tendonitis, really...] is twelve holiday favourites you will all recognize, just presented the only way we know how: not quite what you’d expect… We hope you love it. We had a complete blast making it. In the summer. How do you think I felt about walking around in the scalding sun and humidity quietly humming ‘It Came Upon A Midnight Clear’ to myself all day? Sheesh. It better be good…
They have a new page up for us here:

Here’s a wonderful review we just found of our first CD ‘Flights Volume One’:
They misspelled Mike’s last name, but the reviewer seemed to understand what it is we do. He describes it well. Favorably, which we like, but accurately.
Here’s a video we did while making the last recording: Flights Volume 1:
And here’s a page we assembled last fall of some of our favorite pull quotes and factoids so far:
