the musical adventures of Arne Skage jr.

Guitarplayer and musicmaker

Joe Rusi "Who I am"

Months have passed since my last blogpost about the Joe Rusi Project. The album was finished  by late summer, and  we have used this fall to get a record deal.  We ended up signing a licence deal with BigH records in Oslo and are releasing the album  december 4.

After returning  from New Orleans with the basic tracks, we started  recording guitars and vocals ,saxophone on one track, and some percussion on several tracks.

Bluesnews is a national magazine for blues enthusiasts in Norway, that also has some distribution in Sweden and Denmark. They did a 3 full page story on our adventure to NOLA with interviews and all.

As I write this its 1 week till release of the album, and we are looking forward to what people  think about the album....
