My contract with Eromeda Entertainment has expired and I have chosen not to renew it, for future releases. There are no hard feelings and the decision to split was not based on arguments or in fighting. It was simply a venture that, after two years, had run its course.
I wish Eromeda and their great stable of current artists nothing but success, and look forward to hearing their future releases.
In the last year or so I have been increasingly frustrated and deflated with the way things were going, and in my mind, without enjoyment, there is no reason to be a musician any longer.
There is a saying in life, that if you keep trying to go through a door, over and over, and it is continuously being slammed in your face, you are probably better off trying another door. That is exactly what I am doing from now on.
The first port of call, is to start enjoying music again. Getting out on the road and playing is something I have missed massively over the last year.
I have put together a band here in Derby and we start rehearsals next week. They are a great bunch of lads and like myself, just want to play live. None of us picked up an instrument to ‘be famous’ or ‘make millions’, in fact, I couldn’t think of anything I would enjoy less.
Just give me a guitar, a microphone, and an audience, and I am as happy as a pig in shit.
So that is the immediate plan.
I have a single being mixed, and as soon as that is mastered, I will be putting a music video together, and will be releasing the single myself.
This summer I have plenty of solo shows including the Isle of Wight Festival, and a tour of Scotland.
I can’t wait to get back out on the road, and get my smile back, before these frown lines become permanent!
Hope to see you on the road soon.
