In late 2016, I was invited by VanNess Wu (吳建豪) to listen in on one of his rehearsals for his upcoming show. After a few months, while I was preparing for 黃大煒's 2017 Concert @ Legacy, I brought up the idea of having VanNess as our special guest... During the rehearsals and performance, I got to know more about his band, and discovered that his guitarist, James Kerridge, is from the Pacific Northwest.
Later that year, I was looking for a guitarist for a section during my own concert at Clapper Studio. Since James and I built up a connection during the year, I was delighted to have shared the stage with him!!
While I was recording guitars for one of my songs on my upcoming album, I felt that something was missing. I didn't want to add another instrument, just another part, so I figured James Kerridge could help me out. I am soo glad I asked James, because his electric guitar tone and part really brought the different moving elements together.
