The following is a copy of the post I made yesterday on the new The Primatives Official Website http://theprimativesrock.wordpress.com/. All part of my effort to keep all my stuff as together as possible. As always, Thanks to the friends of The Primatives for all your support.
Bhot Accha, you found us.
Just developing this site. I’m planning for this to be the main outlet for info and updates re: The Primatives
I’ve put our CD’s on the home page and will be getting some audio samples of our music on there soon, as well. Also due to popular demand, and because I want to anyway, there will be a lyrics page, and/or pages.
This page will be the place to go for updates on Primatives happenings. Hope you’ll check in once in awhile and see what we’re up to.
Just for the record and for those not really familiar with us, The members of the band are: my wife, Lilasuka (Joy) Hanson (silver flute, vocals, mrdanga, and other percussion), Jack Huston (electric bass and vocals), myself Jesse S. Hanson (guitars, vocals, songwriting), and on a really good day, when she’s not completely overwhelmed with work as and auto mechanic and the rest of her life, our daughter, Audrey Hanson (djembe and vocals).
The band has been pretty busy of late, with performances at the New Vrindavn cmmunity in West Virginia. Also played our annual Rock the Quarry benefit for The Panhandle Trail in Collier Township, just outside of Pittsburgh. That was cool, as it gave us a chance to reconnect with the Donoughe family from Mount Lebanon, who we hadn’t seen for some time since the closing of our two haunts, The Coffee Den in Mount Lebanon, and The Inspiration Cafe in Washington, PA.
Personally, as many of you know, I’ve gotten my novel, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man, which you can take a look by clicking on the following link: https://www.createspace.com/3469737 published with All Things That Matter Press http://allthingsthatmatterpress.com/ and so I’ve been spending a ton of time promoting that. Along with that I’ve been recording another wonderful album of Heritage Songs for Jordan Umbach in my BlueHome Recording studio. Getting close to done with the recording part of that and moving into the mixing. It is going to be a rather spare album, instrumentally, which is great because it will show Jordan’s songwriting in it’s best light to date, in my opinion.
I’ve finally begun writing some new songs, and I’m continuing to write fiction and poetry. There’s really not enough time in a day -certainly not enough in a lifetime. Well, it’s all just going through so many motions anyway. As far as I’m concerned, my most important work is my spiritual practices and deepening my relationship with my Spiritual Master. It’s the hardest work, but the most rewarding.
Signing off for now, this is your webmaster wanna be, jesse s. hanson
