I’ve finally started to release some new music 1 track at a time! Starting this month, I will release 1 song a month for the next 4-6 months and then release a full length album, “On The Edge Of Change“. Starting with a limited Bandcamp presence, here we go: Anything Anyone Anywhere, by Adrian Harpham
I’veything Anyone AAl
Continued work on the “Light Blue Movers” project! Now, we are adding special guest vocalists to this ever growing body of work-very exciting! But for now, the 1st 4 instrumental songs are up on Soundcloud for people to hear: Light Blue Movers
May 12th 2014- New Chromeo album out! I’m on a few things (The track with Solange is one of them) Usually, I’ve come in to do auxiliary percussion or hi hats and things..Always good to see these guys. I toured with them from 2004-2007 playing a Simmons Kit ! Here’s me and Dave One from back in the day, 2006 Melbourne, Australia.
March/April 2014-I embarked on a 5 1/2 week trip in Europe with Robin Mckelle and the Flytones in support of the “Heart of Memphis” album (currently being released around the world). This was an incredibly hard tour with everyone (including myself) being sick, underslept, jetlagged, drained etc. After 3 years, 2 albums and thousands of miles traveled-I now say goodbye to this project…
Directly after this tour, whilst still sick, feeling beat up (physically, emotionally, spiritually and otherwise)- I went to Amsterdam to do a one off gig at Melkweg with Amel Larrieux! We haven’t been on stage together in 2 and 1/2 years so..it was a trip to play again. After this, chilled in Berlin for 9 days..I really got a feel for this city on this trip.
January/February- did shows with the “Icons Of Funk” featuring Bernie Worrell, Fred Wesley, Leo Nocentelli, Bill Dickens and myself. Howard Theater and B.B.King’s and then in February, at Yoshi’s (minus Fred Wesley). This band is really starting to gel and sound like something-like a BAND. I never thought I would ever say that in regards to me with these incredible luminaries-very cool…
After Yoshi’s- popped down to LA to continue more work with Deron Johnson on the Light Blue Movers project. This time, Julian Coryell came in to sing on a track. One of the most amazing displays of “in the moment” talent/skill/creativity I’ve ever witnessed. He came with nothing and wrote lyrics, melody, harmonies-on the spot-1 take of each…Beautiful.
October-February/March: Production on the Ben Seawell album continued and we added another 5 songs. Now, it’s a full length album project and more great featured guests bringing their super strong personalities to the table! At this point: the guests include: FALU, HENRY BUTLER, SEAMUS BLAKE, GERALD MENKE, AMP FIDDLER, LEO NOCENTELLI, BECCA STEVENS, CLARK GAYTON, DERON JOHNSON, DOUG WAMBLE, TEDDY KUMPEL, AL STREET, GABRIEL GORDON, BARRY DANIELIAN, CRAIG DREYER, DANNY SADOWNICK, BRIAN MITCHELL, FRANK KIMBROUGH, BEN STIVERS, HENRY HEY———-HORNS/STRINGS arranged by JOHN DIVERSA with DAVE EGGAR and TONY KADLECK leading the respective sections
