Steve Carter And Scattered Ashes - "A Question Of Identity" Album Production And Tour

Project 2015-07-07 12:39:07 +1200

Previously a Health Promoter with the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand/Like Minds, Like Mine, Steve Carter presents 'A Question of Identity' - an album and show themed to combine music and words into a 21st century advocacy for warts-and-all wellbeing. Sometimes, it feels right to explore a new approach to getting a message across, so through music, poetry, presentation and story-telling, all laid over his idiosyncratic and unique style, he presents the case for a dissolute and, ultimately, loose approach to the healthy life that actually seems to work.

Themes range across subjects such as monkey-mindedness, addictions, relationships, mental illness and the devastation and transformation wrought by the Christchurch earthquakes.......oh, and pool......but always promote the case for diversity, peace, love, tolerance and compassion. It is open-hearted, brutally honest and shot through with dark humour and world-weary wisdom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now that most of the recording is done, I need to get the album into a studio to tidy up the lo-fi delivery. Once that is done, I'm going to hit the road and take the show and the message around Aotearoa.

So please assist in the evolution of a new form of health promotion based on the advocacy of lived experience. Pledge me money for a muso ear, studio chops and gas for my van and help me in my continuing quest to make a difference, my way......
