The March 13 Music Mondays with Bren Dube podcast featuring Chris Rupert is now online on YouTube and iTunes for anyone who wants to check it out. This podcast features close to an hour of discussion with Chris on Falling Edge, composing, and music in general. Chris also plays 4 songs during the show.
You may have noticed some changes here – the Falling Edge website was long overdue for a rework, and we’re very pleased with the results. We hope you like the new look.
On the recording front, Chris and Rob spent some time doing some drum pre-production this week, and are planning to record drums for the 3rd song in the next few days.
I’ll be doing a podcast with Bren Dube for Implicit Entertainment on Monday March 13 starting at 5PM EST for anyone who wants to check it out. On the recording front, we expect to record drums for another song in the next of couple weeks if all goes well.
Got time for a quick update between practice sessions…
Rob was in the studio last week and got drums recorded on 2 of the 7 songs that will appear on the next Falling Edge album. The tracks sound great and I’m really happy with what he’s brought to the music. I’m now heavily into practicing the guitar, bass, keyboard, and vocal parts for these and the other remaining songs. Rob is planning to record another song in the next month or 2 as well.
It was such a short time ago that we were saying goodbye to Greg Lake, and now it’s John Wetton… My prayers go out to him and his family. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

TEDx videos released; drum recording to begin next week
Happy New Year everyone, and I hope you all had a Merry Christmas.
Remember the TEDx show I played at in Oct., for which I promised you videos and an unplugged version of a yet to be released Falling Edge song? Well, they’ve finally been released. Hope you enjoy them:
Crippled by Fear was selected as an Epic for All Time in December at Raven Radio. You may remember that Minstrel in the Corner was also selected in May of last year. And, on the new album front, I’ve been busy practicing and working out final arrangements of the songs, and have recorded the keyboard parts on one of the tracks. As mentioned previously, Rob Kovar will be joining me on this album on drums, and we’ll be beginning to record drum tracks next week.
Earlier this week I completed all the writing and arranging for the last of the songs that will appear on the new album, and have started into all the practicing that’s going to be necessary to do the recording. I’m also happy to announce that drummer Rob Kovar, with whom I’ve been jamming over the past few months, will be playing on this record, and hopes to begin recording in the next few weeks.
The TEDx show went well, with a big turnout and an awesome crowd. The entire event was captured on video, and we’re still awaiting its appearance on You Tube. I’ll be sure to post here when it shows up.
You may remember that a year or so ago at this time, I was on the 2015 Cruise to the Edge, where I had the opportunity to play some great prog songs with other like minded musicians. I’ve posted a handful of new photos from that event on the Photos page if you want to check them out.
