Dear funkateers, you might have come here via one of the buttons on my latest…
Chris Rizik from Soultraks has featured our videos in the past (Mike Farris, Jo Harman) – this time he has featured ‘No More Days’ our Masterlink Session with Hamish Stuart in loving memory of ‘Molly’ Duncan. Have a read and watch HERE.
Next up Sam Tanner‘s ‘Back To Us’ and Diana Silveira‘s ‘Ain’t No Truth’.
We you hope you will enjoy this one! A very proud moment for us at Masterlink Sessions!
We’re certainly had some great and noted musicians perform at Masterlink Productions with the house band being the rhythm section of the Redtenbacher’s Funkestra and none more than a recent session with Hamish Stuart (James Stuart). Hamish Stuart is universally regarded as UK music royalty, not just as the falsetto voice, guitar/sometimes bass, and songwriter with the ‘classic’ Average White Band line up (6 gold records and multiple hits, including the all time classic ‘Pick Up The Pieces’, co-written by Hamish), but also his subsequent work with artists such as Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, George Benson, Chaka Khan, David Sanborn, Quincy Jones, and Atlantic Starr, to name but a few. More than that, Hamish is one of the few musicians who has worked with the two surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney (for whom Hamish toured and recorded with for over a 6 year period) and Ringo Starr (Hamish returns to the US to tour with Ringo again later in the year).
In this interview, Hamish talks to me about the origins of a new song ‘No More Days’, the performance ‘Masterlink Sessions’ video of which will be world premiered by SoulTracks.com in the not to distance future. Keep an eye on their sites – or better still subscribe to their newsletter – for this!
