Recording Diary #1

Brothers and Sisters,

Hey ho!

Well, fresh from coming FIRST in the Indie International Songwriting competition (yeah, didn't you know?! Read about it HERE) I have been back in the studio recording my 5th EP and I am one happy boy! It's so good being back in the studio getting these tracks down, that I've had planned for quite some time now. It's early doors so far, but I dare say it looks set to be one of, if not THE, best work I've done.

Humble, I know!

Using my best Jedi Mind tricks to control the desk with my mind

But seriously, it's all going SO well!

We've been working on a couple of tracks, one of which recent gig attendees would have heard, "Bye Bye, Me" and an instumental named "Breakfast at the Molaca". There's been a lot of experiementation and I've happily watched as my tracks have developed and blossomed

As a single man these are my babies!

 I eat a lot of carrots so I can play in the dark

I'll be recording throughout May and June inbetween my gig schedule (new gigs just added!) and so the release will be around Autumn this year! So watch this space for more updates!

With regards to gigs, there has been a change in venue for me at the Camden Rocks Festival. I will be playing at Fifty Five Bar at 3:30pm! Come on down!

Have yourselves a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend! It's going to be mega, beleive!

FORWARDS!!

And first place goes to...ONE T!!!

Brothers and Sisters!

How the devil are you all?! Summer is on it's way, the land is looking beautiful and gigs are in full swing!

I'd also like to mention that I, ahem, came in FIRST PLACE for the Indie International Songwriters award! The judges were all award winners, with Grammys and other such bling to their names, so needless to say I'm pretty chuffed about it all! 

"What song was it you won the award for?"

Oh, I'm glad you asked. It was for none other than 'London Lives'. Classic!!

 (Buy London Lives)

 

It's certainly wonderful to get acknoweldged. And FIRST place. I mean, who'd of thunk it! Thanks goes to the competion and judges. Impecable taste! 

Alas, does that make me rest on my laurels? 

HELL NO!!

I've not only been back on the circuit gigging my little tits off...

...but I went back into the studio to record the 5th studio EP! Yep, I've even got a working title and the work in progress artwork for it...I know!!!!

Busy little fucker!

And you know what? I'm having a ball! I am so excited to be performing new tracks and recording them to be released later on in the year. Thin gs be good, y'all, believe!!!

FORWARDS!!
