Another new song! Again .... I'm just so excited to let you guys know I've basically finished Deja Vu. I wrote, recorded and mixed the song (as best I could) in my Stem Studios here in Bunbury. It's a rock song, drawing on musical influences from different eras. Lyrically inspired by personal upheaval and change, it acknowledges the inherent positivity of Life (if you want it to be). Deja Vu speaks of opportunity arising from adversity and, the excitement that uncertainty offers and brings. Trust in the unknown. In a surreal twist ... when I put this song out for comment and feedback, I was approached by a guy called Max Carola. Max is a Mixing/ Mastering Engineer operating out of Naples, Italy ... and he wanted to mix/master Deja Vu. He said the song had a lot of potential, but needed high level desk work to polish it. I knew he was right. I checked his bio ... he had all the right gear, he's worked with INXS, Robert Palmer, Aerosmith, Roxette, Mariah Carey ... the list goes on. I'm just an old bloke out of Bunbury! I had to pinch myself. Anyway - I had sung, played, recorded and put together every track (30 tracks total) in Stem Studios, mixed the song to the best of my ability, before sending the .wav files to Max. What he came back with has simply stunned me. It's the same song ... but his desk skills have blown me away. The song is bigger, wider, taller and more expansive ... and will probably be released prior to Just For You. Keep an eye here in my website or search Steve Trigwell on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music, wherever etc etc. Both songs should be out within weeks. Search steve_trigwell on Instagram for updates.
Back in January I was lucky enough to perform with Kingsley Oldmeadows, his Dad Fenton Wilde and Mark Gale in Wongan Hills, Western Australia. Together with a couple of covers, we played one of my original songs ... Just For You. Even though we had never rehearsed it, I was pretty happy with the vibe and the crowd loved it. Kingsley asked if I wanted to record it at his "Honeypot Studio" in Wongan Hills. I had already done a rough mix in my own Stem Studios, but my desk skills are limited so, after a few months had passed I decided to call him and set up a date. Kingsley has drummed for Human Nature and Dami Im (so he knows his way around the skins) ... and his Dad Fenton ... well let's say he is a West Australian legend guitarist from his days in The Jets. To my excitement, they both agreed to play on the song. I'll be heading up there very shortly to put down the vocals, harmonies and 12 string guitar. I've already heard the tracks they have put down - and I'm excited. I can't wait to get over this head cold /flu thing I've had and we can get this song over the line. Stay tuned folks ... I promise to throw everything at it!
