Okay, so I’ve been pretty slack in keeping things updated on here lately – so first off apologies for that!
The main reason is because I’ve been very busy recording. I’ve been doing some stuff in my home studio but I’ve also had the opportunity to record at a couple of other local studios – the funny thing is I had no plans to record so soon after the last album, but I’ve had the fortune of being offered studio time at other studios, and I’ve been writing a lot – so yeah…why not!
Truth be told there’s been a lot happening in my personal life, both good and bad that has proven to be a great source of inspiration – I have a total of 22 songs recorded so far and I’m still not slowing down. Creatively this is proving to be a very fruitful time in my life. When it comes to the point that I’m looking at releasing another album there’s either going to be a lot of b-sides, or I might have to look at doing something other than a traditional album release. There’s lots of ideas swirling round in my head in regards to that – but a release is a long way off yet anyway – I’m still touring the 2nd album!
Which brings me to my other update – shows! I’ve been busy playing in London, and some famous venues in Nottingham, including the main stage at Rescue Rooms and a lovely acoustic gig alongside The Golden Troubadours, Jonathan Millett, Boy Child and Alexa Hawksworth at The Glee Club (thanks to Alexa for inviting me to play.) As well as that I’ve been playing in Sheffield a fair bit, which has some nice venues. I’ve also been playing guitar for another local singer songwriter – Daniel Dobbs. He released his EP this week and me and some other musician friends joined him as his official backing band. We played another show together yesterday and are looking at doing some touring too.
I’ve also been looking at traveling around Europe for a while – maybe bringing a guitar with me and seeing where I can play. I went on a little 2-day break in Leeds the other week and it made me realise how much I enjoy traveling – and how much I’d like to see the world. I’ve not really been out of the UK before and even within the UK there’s still a lot for me to see. Traveling around for gigs has really shown me how fun seeing new places can be!
Oh and lastly I’m also in talks to get one of my songs from my album ‘Remember Me‘ onto the soundtrack for a major independent film – more on that soon hopefully…
Hope you’re all well and having a great weekend!
