New Tour, Album Update and General Happenings...

It's been a whole 9 months since I've wrote a blog, so forgive me if this is a little rusty. This year was supposed to be a bit of a break for me, so that I could concentrate on my writing. However, I've been extremely busy. I think I've already racked up around 150 gigs. I've done a bit of writing, I've currently written around 13 songs for the new album. I've been playing a few of them live such as, 'Comfortable', 'Little Things' and 'Country Song'. I've no idea up until now which of these will make it onto the album. 

I'm currently in talks with a few producers. I made a list of people that I'd love to work with and contacted them. The response rate is almost 100%, which is nice. As it currently stands, I think I'll be recording the album in Leeds with a producer called Andy Hawkins. 

I bought a new guitar this week as well. I've been trying out guitars for 5 months now and still hadn't found the one I wanted....until yesterday. I was in a music shop (PMT in Manchester) looking at busking amps. I then stumbled across this beauty and immediately emptied my bank account. Totally worth it. Say Hello to Martina. 
As you may be aware, I've been 'Crowdfunding' my album. A few of my friends have used Crowd Funding websites, which works great for them but I felt I would do it without. I'm currently creating new Merchandise and all the profits goes towards my album. The total saved up currently stands around £2100, which is insane. So Thank You for that. I've also created a 'Donate' button at the bottom of this page, which can use if you like. I'm not sure how I feel about the whole 'Donate' thing, it may not stick around for long. 
Other great news is that I'm going on tour again in October. My friend 'Bry' asked me if I'd like to support him alongside compadre 'Dave Giles'. We're playing alot of places. I'm very honoured to be on the bill with 2 great musicians. We all toured together in 2013 and it was so much fun. Since then, we've all come a long way as musicians so this should be great tour. Head over to my 'Shows' page to check out the dates and get tickets! Be great to see some familiar faces. 


That's it for this week! Hope you're enjoying the new look of the website. I plan to keep this updated as often as I can. I'm now going to go and write a masterpiece. I could fail.

    Awesome read. I'm glad you had a great time in Edinburgh. I was there last year with my son, we had a lovely few days away. I hope you will still be able to use that train ticket for another journey. A lot of money to have to pay when you're not expecting it.
