PADCAST 26: PIXIE

Paddy Milner - Podcast 26
It’s nice to see people doing things positively around you, and it was great this week to see a local artist transforming a wall into a community art project. In this week’s Padcast, in which I play James Booker’s ‘Pixie’, are some of the images from this project, painted by residents of Walthamstow, London. My little effort on the wall is, rather unimaginatively on my part, the piano and hand.

Check out http://exhibitions.weebly.com/12-20—this-is-us-2012 or http://www.artcatcher.co.uk for a full report on the ‘This Is Us’ community art project, the brainchild of E17 resident artist Katja Rosenberg.

Plus please check out some James Booker if you haven’t come across him before! Genius. Not a word I like to use lightly…

Anyway, here’s the video!

TRIBUTE TO GERRY BRON

Paddy Milner - Podcast 25
Sadly, Gerry Bron passed away earlier this week. He was a music industry legend who, amongst many other things, was the founder of Bronze Records. He released 2 of my albums, ‘Walking On Eggshells’& ‘Based On A True Story’, and offered me many opportunities. He was a true gentleman who loved music. This is a little tribute to him, a cover of a song he produced and released for Uriah Heep – The Wizard.

PADCAST 24: JUMP INTO MY CAR

From the album ‘The Curious Case Of Paddy Milner’. Each and every week I post a new video – a new recording, tour diary, special guest performance or anything that comes into my little brain that week…

This week, I took some footage from our trip to Croatia with ‘Mum’s The Word’ charity. It was started by some friends of mine and is doing some spectacular work. We visited several orphanages, children’s homes and hospitals to deliver much needed clothes that the charity had collected in the UK. A thoroughly effective and worthwhile organisation.

Please check them out at www.mumsthewordcharity.co.uk

Till next week…

PADCAST 23: PADCAST STUDIOS

Paddy Milner - Podcast 23
Hi all, this week I haven’t had time to do anything major so here’s a little clip of the Padcast Studio setup used one week…state of the art or what! Set to an arrangement I did of ‘The James Bond Theme’, which will be released on ‘The Curious Case Of Paddy Milner – Re-Opened’ – a re-release of the album with bonus tracks. The recording was originally released on an album by Monty Norman, the composer of the theme, for which I did the arranging.

PADCAST 22: COCKNEY CASH MACHINE

cockney cash machinePadcast 22: Each and every week I post a new video with a new song, recording, special guest, tour diary or whatever comes along that week!

This week I happened to take some cash out in E17 and this is what greeted me. I just had to write a little ditty. Apologies to bonafide Cockneys for the terrible mockney, but it’s all with respect – I love the culture and think that more things like the Cockney Cash Machine should be around.

Enjoy!
