This is probably a generational thing but as I type this I find myself channeling the Buffy the vampire slayer musical episode singing, 'going through the motions' to myself.... Strangely this is pretty much the tone this blog will take.

January was a juggle of incomes and expectations that ended rather badly and so far February has felt very much the same - hence why I haven't blogged - but I've got two gigs coming up in the next week so I thought it best to break the silence and get back on the horse. It hasn't helped that I lost my voice for a week and a half and it has literally only just returned in the last 2 days (thank goodness). When you're constantly reminded that your voice is everything it sure hurts when it suddenly isn't there but it was a stern reminder that I'm a lot more than just a singer; but hey it's back so crisis over!

So I'm excited because this means that I can *hopefully* deliver a good, sparkly set at Culm Valley this Wednesday as I've been looking forward to it for a while. I also have the album launch of Time on Friday at Tapeley Park which should be interesting and a nice bunch of musicians to back me up. I'm very grateful for their support (and never-ending supply of cider) and I'm hoping we can pull it off and have a good time.

That's pretty much it for now, recovery continues, my voice is returning and banjo-surgery ensues,

wish me luck!
