Bestival, Book, & Full Band Rehearsals…

Hello everyone,

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I’m feeling somewhat fragile myself. I fear I’m getting too old for Festivals! The Bestival just about finished me off.

Was great to see Stevie Wonder though. A frighteningly talented gentleman.

I performed myself. It was only one tune before my Dad gave a speech. It was all a bit of a set up with a girl, obviously a plant, climbing onto the stage and spouting nonsense. I hope she spends her 30 peices of silver wisely. I would recommend a less generic ‘punk’ haircut. 🙂

I enjoyed my performance though, and the crowd seemed to get on board.

 

My book was released on Friday, but for some reason, there was some glitch on the postage. Basically it works out the weight automatically, and it was working it out as £6.90. That’s extortionate I know. I’ve managed to sort it now and it’s gone down to £3 odd. That’s what it costs to send so there is no profit in the postage.

Tonight I’m rehearsing for the first time with the full band. I’ve been doing the acoustic thing for a couple of years now, and can’t wait to get back to making a racket. It’s the reason I started playing. I can’t wait for that.

The album is out on MONDAY!!! Eeeeek! I really hope you like it!  It’s only available on CD. The downloads aren’t available until October. You can’t beat the real thing anyway!!! 🙂

Take care folks! x

 

Live @ Troon Festival…

Hello folks/folkettes.

I’ve been lucky enough, to be invited to perform, at this years Live @ Troon Festival.

The Festival, in Ayrshire, Scotland is in it’s third year. It’s growing and growing with so many wicked acts performing this year. I think I might actually be the only non Scottish act, which is pretty flattering.

Unless of course, they just want to kidnap an English guy as a sacrifice. Maybe I’m the hog roast?

I brought my England shirt. Just to stoke the fire.

If I don’t end up on a spit, with an apple in my mouth, I’ll be performing these two slots at the Festival.

Tonight (Friday 31st Aug) at Fullertons. I’m on at 9pm, supporting my good friend Jono.

Sunday (2nd September) I’m performing in the SuCasa Tent on Troon beach. I’m on at about 2pm.

If you’re about, come on down! x

Eromenos Interview…

Hello!

I have just returned from watching my beloved Derby County blow a 3-0 lead, a 4-1 lead, and a 5-3 lead, to lose on penalties.

Needless to say, I’m unimpressed!

Here is an interview I did with my label yesterday.

Interview.

There was no reason to tell you about the football. No reason at all.

Night. x

Review…

Yo.

The single ‘Remember who you are’ was reviewed by Isle of Wight based fanzine, Vectis Radar.

Check it out here.

If you haven’t already checked out the video. Here it is…

Peace. x

Album Release.

Hey everyone,

Just got off the phone with the label and it looks like the release date for the album is September 17th.

It will be available for download and on CD at outlets across the UK. It’s just a UK CD release at the moment but you’ll be able to download Worldwide. I’m guessing you’ll be able to buy a hard copy from here or from the label at some point.

I’m just waiting for the documents to arrive so I can go through and sign on the dotted line. Only took me 12 years of being a musician to get noticed eh? 🙂

Sorry if I’m sounding a bit vague but until it’s all signed, sealed, delivered, I’m not divulging too much.

There will be a release party in London on Friday 21st September. I’ll let you know all the details as soon as I have them.

To celebrate being offered a contract, I’m going for a swim.
