Hamman Discusses Life on a Winery & Yodelling, Delights Crowd

Dustin Hamman, his band of Johns, (John Vechiarelli, John Whaley & John Reski) and Michael Capello on stand-up bass performed as Run On Sentence for OPB Radio’s Live Wire! variety show a few weeks ago. Despite some technical difficulties (neatly edited out for the radio) the band gave a rousing performance. and Hamman charmed the audience with anecdotes from life in the Columbia Gorge.

The pace is not letting up for Peter Broderick, who will spend about 90% of 2009 on tour.

Nonetheless, he found time recently to release a very limited edition cassette concisely entitled Ten Duets which sold out shortly after it was announced. Digitalis Industries generously offers up two mp3’s what fast became a collector’s item:

Piano & Toy Piano

Nylon Guitar & Violin

(Peter also has two others posted on his Myspace.)

Miss out?  Take heart:

“I will have a bunch of smaller releases this year! Already confirmed are a 3″ CD on a small Italian label, a CD release of my score for Falling From Trees, a reissue album of some old 4 track recordings, and a collaborative full-length album with one of my favorite musicians working today, Machinefabriek.”

In addition Peter’s European label Bella Union has a 7″ release on deck, and something else I’ve heard of which appears unannounced as yet.

Speaking of media, the most recent episode (Ep 18, Season 5) of Grey’s Anatomy features Broderick’s “With The Notes In My Ears” from Home. Scoring the final chapter montage, the song adds tenderness to a rather steamy sequence.  For the curious, it can be seen at abc.com.

Lastly, in Broderick related news, a few Portlanders were lucky to see the Peter’s sister Heather Broderick play an intimate set of her own music under the name Heatherwoods with Peter’s accompaniment last February. Her Myspace suggests she is still working on a debut album which is rumored to (at the very least) have a home in Australia on the young Preservation imprint:

Ms. Short has quite thee tour ahead of her. All dates will be played with accompaniment from Alexis Gideon, her beau and erst-while first-rate multi-disciplinary experimental-pop artiste. Gideon will perform under his own name as well.

Shelley is offering a peek at her latest with the recently posted, very luminous “Time Machine / Submarine” on her myspace page.
