Lots of exciting stuff happening at the moment!
If you’re out & about in Bristol this Saturday you could do worse than to check out BrisFest in the city centre at around 4pm – I will be “busking for Oxjam” until about 5pm so please come along and show some support – it’s all for charity
I’ve been writing a lot of late and this has resulted in some new solo set pieces and also the development of new band-oriented material as well as some new work underway with the poetry/music collaboration. This is all good as it promises sustainment for these projects that might otherwise appear to be a short-term thing. The band is going through personnel changes at present so it feels good to be writing with the remaining members. We are currently looking for someone to play additional acoustic / electric guitar so if anyone’s interested please drop me a line. Once we’re fully staffed we can get out there gigging again – which is really all we want to do
Another rather excellent gig is coming up for me in Bristol on 14th October too, at The Thunderbolt Shockingly that’s not as far in the future as it sounds, so put it in your diaries… I’ll be supporting JEBO. If you haven’t heard of these fellas look them up on tinternet! The band has just finished mixing the new album with ex-Island Records producer John Burns (Jethro Tull, Genesis and John Martyn) and Real Worlds Ben Findlay. They are really making waves and it promises to be a top night
Talking of albums, many thanks to those of you who have parted with your hard-earned cash and ordered copies of “You Should Know…” And it’s sooo nice to note such positive feedback I’ve been getting as well! If you haven’t got yourself a copy yet just get yourself over to the STORE page and order one. Might make an ideal early Christmas present for someone You can hear a sneak preview of a few tracks to give you an idea on my myspace page too if it helps…
And to top it all off, I’m chuffed as well to have been nominated for BBC Radio Bristol’s playlist during the month of October! Tracks from the album will soon be hitting the airwaves across the city and I can’t wait …. !!
