So it’s Sunday night while I’m writing this, the time of the week where I try to articulate everything in my busy little brain, and come up something hopefully interesting or useful. I’m surprised that this blog has been going as long as it has, with today being the one year anniversary of the first post! Yeah that’s right, 52 posts later and we are here! To everyone who’s read any of the random posts I’ve put up, thank you! I have lots of plans for the blog this year, and hope you’ll continue to check in with me every Monday! To thank you for your support I’ve released a brand new acoustic track just for you called ‘Lay Down’, aswell as go more in depth about my upcoming new single “I Am”.
This week has been an interesting one, I’ve compiled a load of exciting gigs for this new year, some even stretching to December! It’s mad to get so many brilliant opportunities just based off word of mouth! I’ve been working hard getting my brand new single “I AM” finished and ready for release, and I cannot wait for you to hear it! It seems like a lifetime since I’ve released new music and I cannot wait to get the ball rolling again! As some of you might know, I’ve been studying with The Open University over the past few months, which certainly keeps me busy, and is sometimes hard to balance the music and my studies, but it’s all working out so far and am really enjoying it! It’s definitely been a positive few months all round!
Now let’s get stuck into the new single, because it’s about time I shed some light on it! “I Am” is a song I wrote a few months ago, and is about growing up and the difficulties of adult life, dealing with this transitional period. It’s a song that was produced by Paul Demarco, and we created the whole track on an acoustic guitar! The drums, the bass, everything was made using simply an acoustic guitar, which is a shocking thing once you hear it! We’ve been mulling over a lot of exciting tracks over the past few months, finally getting ready for release! I can’t wait for you to hear it, be sure to keep posted on all new music news! This coming Tuesday I’ll be returning to The Cove in Bangor for another set of some brand new songs! Following that I’m heading off to Llandrindod Wells to support the brilliant John Adams in the Pavillion, as part of Independent venue week! It’s a show I’ve been looking forward to for a long time, and am buzzing to be supporting John in Mid Wales as part of his “No White Lies” tour! See you there! To celebrate a year of blog posts, I have released a brand new acoustic track to soundcloud, to thank you for all support! Here is 'Lay Down'!
