So there I was lying in bed last night, excited at the prospect of a year spent collaborating and creating new music and I realised why I've been a bit weird whenever someone has asked me 'how's the music going?' lately. No matter how many times you say, 'well' or 'good thanks' people want to know more and for me at least it's hard to tell when there's nothing physical to show for it. The music is good, has returned and is swirling around my head with promise but at the moment it's not ready to be shared. So I've no new CD yet, I've few dates coming up to play and it's all because I've got this lovely green shoot of life that I want to help grow and I'm waiting to see what will come of it.
I can tell you this though I am in the process of booking studio time and I have spent all morning sorting my demos out only to realise I have two albums worth and can't decide which one to make - which is just the loveliest feeling ever! It was fantastic to visit Bude folk club last Sunday 1. because there are so many gifted musicians who frequent it and 2. because I got to finally play with Tim Pointer again after about 4 years. No practice, hearts-pounding we managed 4 songs and they went down well. What more can you ask for? :)
I also had a great time returning to the Palladium with Kevin Beano green. I've loved learning new songs to cover and rising to the challenge - Jack Frost was in my head for a month I think before finally gigging it! Yes all is on the up so stay tuned to see what the little green shoot grows into....
