2FM Ray D’Arcy interviews Karl Deeter about his life and new album Blacksheep

2FM Ray D’Arcy interviews Karl Deeter about his life and new album Blacksheep

Ray D’Arcy had me on his show to give the single ‘Blacksheep’ a twirl and to chat about my life and times, we didn’t get too long to cover it all but the song got a great reaction! Listen in here.

Watch this on a mobile or tablet in fullscreen mode to get the best idea of what it’s about. The idea is that your device is part of the show. We shot this in fast and slow frames to give the idea of a person having a bad day and how it can seem that time is dragging for you while the world speeds by.

 

It’s a beautiful life

This is an acoustic song that strays into the Rap genre, it’s about addiction and loving somebody even when they go down a path you don’t understand or accept.

This is a medley of two Irish tunes I did back in 2001, I recorded once with a click and then went back and did the 2nd guitar. Can’t recall if I did rhythm or lead first though? Probably worth knowing if I’m to ever try that kind of thing again!

I don’t often let people know this,  but I loved (and still do love) dance music. In particular I was a fan of house and techno back in the mid 90’s. In the early 2000’s during what I would call some of my ‘dark days’ where I didn’t do much other than sit around pissed off and writing music I produced a lot of dance tunes.

They aren’t my best work by a long shot but it was a genre I had some fun with so figured I’d post a tune or two up here. This one and another written for my friend Robert O’Boyle called ‘buglars delight’ are probably my favourites.

This is a fiddle tune medley I have played in various places and with lots of people. This is a video from a gig we did at the Conwy Bluegrass Festival in Wales about 9 years back. Tom Hanway and Karl Deeter was the act and then we had Neil on another banjo and Joe on mandolin. Both great players. The crowd are great too, they always give a bit of an applause to guitar flatpickers too (so I’m totally biased!).
