Greetings from the white hills of North Devon!
As I type this the second wave of snow this year is whipping its way past my window in a craze of heavy white flakes. I'm having a productive Sunday of planning out my future musical endeavours. I have recently taken the bold step of dropping a day at work, which in my world is financial madness but I felt it was the right thing to do. I was raised with the ethos of life is work; you work and you work and you work for as long as you can because that is how you survive. The trouble with that ethos is you will work yourself to death and at the end of it all you'll realise you didn't do much of what you wanted. I want to get back to doing what I love so this is the first step to achieving that.
You'll notice for example there's a new tab on the website - music tuition! I'm been tutoring for twelve years now - where does the time go! - and now that I have more time it would be lovely to have more students with a variety of instruments to teach. I'm also a lot more active on youtube, trying out tutoring videos and just singing some songs to the camera. I'm hoping to look into wedding singing too as I did one once, many moons ago, and although I probably under charged and froze to death in the process I had a lovely, memorable night. Maybe it's because I'm getting married too and I've been around a tonne of wedding fairs already this year; I realise there's a niché in the market for someone like me to come and play something soft. You can tell I've been thinking for sometime about what I would like to do and it's kind of exploded like some thought bubble. Ultimately I love to sing and perform and it will be wonderful to have more time to share more music with you.
Thank you for your continued patience and support; the comments left under new songs on Soundcloud and videos shared on Facebook often make my day and give me the motivation to keep going xx Look after each other and keep warm!
ps. I'm heading back to the studio this week (hopefully it'll be warmer by Saturday!) and also continuing to rehearse a Johnny Cash Tribute-Duo side project so much more music to come, stay tuned x
