So I have been farting around with some video editing programs and have been having fun with it. I decided to try making a video for the old Basler song "Never Going Back Again". Check it out here on the website or on YouTube. Let me know what you think!
I am so excited to see 2021 underway. The Corona Virus made 2020 kinda suck and although there was some great things that happened, I am glad to have it over with. I am focusing on a whole bunch of new projects that I wanted to let you know about.
As some of you know I have been working on a online show called "Basler's Basement" and it should be ready to go with the first episode at the end of the month.It has been a lot of hard work and learning but I am excited to show you. It combines music, comedy and a little bit of the twilight zone so check it out once it is out!
I have also been working on making lyric videos and regular music videos for my older songs. It is all DIY by me and that has been an adventure in itself. It has taken a lot of time to learn and I am still learning but it has been fun so far and I am looking forward to doing a lot more!
I have also been writing and recording DIY style as well and am looking forward to having a few releases this year. I am hoping to have a 3 Song EP ready for early in the year and full length for the end of the year.
Thanks so much, for your support through the last year of no gigs. It has been hard not seeing everyone.
I have a little request for you if you don't mind. Could you tell me what comes to mind when you hear the word "Basler". Email me back with your response at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am so excited to hear what you come up with.
I hope you made it through 2020 without too many issues and I hope you are looking forward to 2021 as much as I am!
The Covid has affected us all and now that a vaccine is on it’s way things may get back to normal soon. Live shows have come to a halt and online shows are starting to be a new thing. I have done a few online shows and will be doing a lot more! I am premiering “Basler’s Basement” this month and am working on a brand new bunch of songs with a little bit of a tweak in the music and expanding musically a lot! I am looking forward to seeing what this next year brings for the music industry, and for everyone in general.
The Covid numbers are rising and some new restrictions are in place here in Alberta and as some of you may know I have decided to postpone booking any physical live shows for my cover band "Three Pistols" as well as physical live shows for the original project "Basler" until the numbers go down and everyone feels safe again. We are all hoping it won't be that long. Until then I have decided to continue working on the online show, "Basler's Basement" as well as doing a lot more online with the original project "Basler". All this will take place on YouTube, Facebook Live, Twitch and most importantly the Basler website.
I know a lot of people are getting sick of social media because of all the negativity and fighting. I don't blame them one bit.

I have come up with a lyric video for the song "All The Oceans"! It is my first real attempt at making a lyric video. Let me know what you think! I had a lot of fun making it and I am going to try to make some for all the Basler songs. If you feel so inclined, I would love to see your creative abilities at work and make a lyric video for a Basler song. Send the YouTube links to me at email@example.com and I will make sure that they get posted and shared to all the major socialmedia platforms that Basler belongs to. Looking forward to see what you come up with!
