I am off and away on a private jet with Atlantic Records artist Christina Perri and friends, including the entire Cullen vampire clan from the new Twilight movie!
Christina’s vampire love song, A Thousand Years is featured in ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.’ We’ll play this song and more of her beautiful love songs for Twi-hards and music-lovers all over the US.
My cello and I feel so honoured to be a part of this tour. I love Christina’s songs, they are so emotional and yearning and sumptuous for my strings. And I’m a true Twi-hard too, can’t wait to see ‘Breaking Dawn,’ even more so after our exquisite show last night at Summit Entertainment’s party at the Hotel Bel-Air. More vampires in the audience than usual, and pretty much everyone in Hollywood, including Kevin Bacon and his beautiful wife, Kyra Sedgwick.
When I return I shall play with the Original Vampire, David J, who I believe inspired the naming of the Twilight saga heroine, Bella, with one of the many classic songs he has written, ‘Bela Lugosi Is Dead.’
His play with music, ‘Silver For Gold,’ will be staged at the REDCAT in L.A’s silvery Walt Disney Concert Hall building, and I shall play strings of many kinds, inspired in part by John Cale. We’ve been looking forward to this for so long, and now it’s nearly here!
David J’s new album is out now on Billy Corgan and Kerry Brown’s Starry Records and Saint Rose. It’s called ‘Not Long For This World’ and I’m playing strings on many of the songs.
Also, David’s made a super limited edition of 12 gatefold vinyl albums featuring an exquisite original artwork, one for each song.
So much going on, but must go, got a plane to catch!
