New Single - Nov 13th
Gigs...going, going, gone!
For me, the best part of a life in music is gigging. Nothing compares to a good gig. Nothing compares to a bad gig. Sometimes, you can't get the right sound, sometimes you have to really force the air from your lungs to get 'that' blue note; Sometimes it doesn't happen and you want to run and hide. But when it does happen, oh my, that's the part you can't get any where else.
While we wait for the powers that be to reconfigure live music, take a moment to search for that scribbled down band name recommended by a friend, reach out to them, they'll appreciate it. Keep an eye online for new releases, stream it on Spotify and buy it on Bandcamp. Turn on the radio, reach out to that band or artist you've always wanted to say hello to.
Some artists are still creating and releasing music. Some are learning new skills and putting their hands on other instruments to keep the head above water. Someday this chapter will be a dusty one that we'll be telling stories about. We won't have to fill out the edges and exaggerate to make it sound crazy.
I hope we'll be diving back into normality by mid 2021 or even 2022. For now, I'm hibernating, practising, procrastinating, looking blankly out a raindrop stained window wondering what the hell I'm going to write about next. Get in touch, say hello, stay awhile and don't let go.
