My mother’s well spoken, no I didn’t get that gene.
Yes I lost it, and yes my eyes they are green.

Tin Can Sounds. Just a couple sounds (new and old) we are trying to incorporate in the new album.

Reform.  Lately we have been getting a lot of compliments about how we have rearranged the song Reform.  We really enjoy playing it, and are glad that people are happy to hear it in the set.  It is not on the free EP, but will be on the album when we record it in the near future.  This video was taken in mid February, when we played at the Pour House with Rubblebucket.  Hope you enjoy!

Kyle Jackson.  Continuing with Tin Can Sailor’s “interview” series, the next person up is Kyle Jackson.  What can you do with six strings?  The goal of Kyle Jackson is to challenge all previous conceptions and limitations that decades of crappy guitar players have handed down.  He believes it is his civic duty, no, privilege to bestow upon to you the knowledge of what “music really is”.  Also, he always tries to play the brown note on stage.  Here is a little more about Kyle in our third installment of TCS interviews:
·      Where is your hometown?
Matthews, NC
·      What was your major?
History, with a concentration in Education
·      Who are your idols?
My Parents, my brother, anyone having fun doing what they are doing.
·      What is your favorite song right now?
"Waiting for the end of the World" by Elvis Costello; really anything by Elvis Costello.
·      What is your favorite TCS song to play?
Lukewarm
·      Do you have any other hobbies?
Teaching, bowling, non-contact sports, pop-culture
·      If you could play in any band, who would it be?
Cake.  I have always thought they seem to be having so much fun making music.
·      After music, what do you want to be?
Enjoying life.  Trying to be the best at whatever I land on next.
As always keep up with us on our Facebook and Twitter pages.  We have several shows coming up in the next month so we would love to see you guys around.  Cheers!

Matt Gilmore.  Throughout the next couple of weeks, the Tin Can Sailor blog will be posting a series of questions answered by all of the members in the band.  We figured it would be a cool way to get to know us a little better.  First up, Matt Gilmore, one of the founding fathers of Tin Can Sailor and the driving force behind the creation of most of the songs.
Where is your hometown?
 Charlotte, North Carolina.
What is your major?
 Economics and Political Science.
Who are your idols?
 People who do what they love to do.
What is your favorite song right now?
 Roman Candle - “Eden was a Garden”.
What is your favorite TCS song to play?
 New ones.
Do you have any other hobbies?
 Reading print media and bowling.
If you could play in any band, who would it be?
 Any reputable jazz band.  If I was good enough at guitar and/or trumpet, I would play jazz.  To me, jazz is the pinnacle of musical expression.  It just doesn’t get any better.
After music, what do you want to be?
 President

Holidays.  Hey fans, sorry it has been so long since our last post, but even during the relaxing holidays we have found ways to keep busy.  On Wednesday December 14, we played our first show in Durham at the Pinhook with our friends River City Ransom.  It was a cool, artsy place and we played to an intimate crowd that night.

Now that it is holiday break, we are spread all over the state enjoying some down time.  That doesn’t mean we won’t be able to squeeze one more concert in before the new year.  That’s right, Thursday December 29 we will be playing our first Charlotte show at the Evening Muse starting at 10 for only $5.  Matt’s close friend, and former bandmate, Amy Schiede will be playing a short acoustic set to open the night so make sure you get there in time to see her phenomenal talent.

If you are unable to make it out to the Charlotte show, we wish all of you a safe and happy New Year, and look forward to seeing you at a show in 2012.  As always keep up with us on our Facebook and Twitter to find out when and where we will be playing next.  Cheers!

Happy Holidays!  Welcome to December everyone.  With our last show in Raleigh for the 2011 year behind us, we figured we would give you guys an early gift.  Last night at the Pour House, we did a special rendition of Jingle Bell Rock in celebration of the coming Holiday season.  We hope that everyone has a happy holidays, and as always check out our Twitter, our Facebook, and if you haven’t downloaded our free EP get it here.  Video credit Casey Brown.

Cheers!
