BLACKBEARD

I drew my inspiration for this Instrumental Artwork from a bass player I saw playing in a band in the city.

The venue was small and the band were exposed to a close contact with the audience. The band was called The Pajama Club and all but one of the band were famous musicians in their own right. 

Sean Donnelly, Alana Skyring and Neil Finn had all experienced their own degree’s of fame, but the lady on the bass was new to the musical, public domain.

On the Bass was Sharon Finn. She played very well that night and looked very cool on stage, deserving her right to be there from her own musical ability. She also had a very cool looking black Bass.

It takes great courage, having only a limited exposure to the world of playing live music, to join a band with famous people in it, then jump straight into the deep end of the music business.

It was an inspiring performance that night and her courage provided me with the fuel I needed to bring my own creations into the public eye. Sometimes the courage one person takes serves to light the flame of bravery in many people.

The inspiring performance of the bassist and her cool looking bass, was the perfect catalyst  I needed to create a new Instrumental Artwork that reflects power,beauty and courage.
