Well, here it is!! After months of research and planning, you are now looking at my official website. More and more features will be added in the coming months.
Consider yourself forewarned!! The look and feel of the site will be changing constantly over time. This site is an ever-evolving art piece.
I decided to go with a blog format for my site and, by so doing, engage in an ongoing dialogue with the world at large. This is now the central hub for all things Gordon Roque. Photos, weekly features, and all the latest news about shows and my forthcoming album can be found right here.
Please feel free to subscribe to this blog's feed or to leave a comment!!!
I've also just announced my Featured Artist of the Month for April 2008--the poet Kathy Skaggs. Be sure to stop by the featured artist page to read this wonderful profile.
Stay a while and have a look around. Stop by the fun page for a quick laugh.
Mi casa es su casa!!!!
I'll be posting again soon. Until then, have a great Tuesday and welcome to gordonroque.com!!
Things up and coming . . . Very soon, I'll be posting up my own reviews of various pieces that I've been enamored of lately. Here's a list . . . Film: Lars and the Real Girl Music: The Crying Light (Antony and the Johnsons) Book: She's Come Undone (Wally Lamb) Music: Let's Play Havoc (Tony Youngblood) On the Knitting Front, I've finished my little flowers which are now going to be potpouri containers. I start on my first scarf this week!!! Hooray. I think I am definitely ready for this now. On the world wide web, more aggressive promotion for the album starts this week along with promotion for my next show at Revive Coffeehouse. More adjustments will also be made on my website. On youtube, I'll be unveiling the full clip of "Mr. Stranger" from my CD Release show back in November. Facebook is finally gonna get some Roque love. There will be two new editions to my online empire. One will be an EARTH page added to this blog. It will have links and resources for recycling and energy conservation tips. I feel the need to do my part to preserve this amazing planet we all live on. The second addition will be a separate site that will house an archive of all of my featured Artists of the Month. A new featured artist will be profiled in April upon the unveiling of the archive site. Also this week, tomorrow night I will perform two songs during my friend and fellow pianist Thomas Werth's writer's night at the Nashville Palace. This will be my first time performing at this venue, and I'm really looking forward to it. As you can see, I like to stay busy. In the meantime, here's another lovely youtube video for your enjoyment . . . This is one of my all-time favorite pianists. Her name is Nina Simone, and this is a live clip of her singing "If You Knew". [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAv1FDpdnmE&feature=related] Hope you all have a great week. Many more posts in store. -g
Sit down before you read this.
We've got to talk.
Look. This is going to piss you off. This is going to look like I'm causing problems.
I'm not causing problems. I'm just pointing out where problems already exist.
