Here's a new song 'My Flame', which was recorded live at practice this week. I'll be popping some more of these live recordings up over the next few weeks, to give you a taste of my new stuff before I set off to play festivals in the summer.
So it looks like being a very busy weekend at the end of July. On Saturday 26th you'll find me at Herofest, Red Lion Gravesend, a charity event helping to raise money for Help the Heroes. I played last year, duking it out with a metal band that was playing alarmingly close to the acoustic stage. This year the stage has moved, presumably after I left said band feeling slightly inadequate, as my sound guy cranked it higher than their sound guy did.
If you happened to be listening to BBC Radio Kent on Sunday afternoon, you might've heard the line up for Create Festival in Ashford. I got a very nice little mention, and I'm really looking forward to playing this year (27th July). Loads of cool bands and soloists playing, including Nizlopi, who had a massive hit with JCB Song (I kept referring to them as 'the digger people' until I looked that up), The Intermission Project, and lots of very lovely local acts like Coco and the Butterfields, One Day Elliott and Sirens and Shelter. This is a free event, and a very popular one. Last year they had 13,000 visitors, expect that number to at least triple now it's been announced that I'm playing...
On Monday I'm heading into the towns for an interview with Digital Video Revolution. Head honcho Dave Proud is producing a documentary about creative types, how they started, the creative process and so on. I'll also be playing some stuff in there too, just deciding on song choices.
Dave has kindly offered his services for some live videos too, so expect my desolate YouTube channel to burst into life over the next few weeks! I'll post some exciting behind the scenes shots soon!
