Okay, so my New Year’s Resolution should be to update this blog on a more frequent basis. Sadly, the hectic touring & recording schedule doesn’t always allow this but I feel the least I can do is improve on my woeful 2012 effort.
I would like to thank all who have helped me, in any way no matter how small, throughout the course of 2012, which was without any doubt, the most successful & enjoyable year of my career to date. I toured in 15 European countries, my busiest yet, in support of the new album ‘How We Once Were’, which I have been both humbled & delighted by the reaction to.
We are currently arranging numerous dates for 2013, please keep an eye on the gigs page for details & if anyone is able to help in this regard please contact me directly. I am hoping to tour in new countries this year also, and again will ensure that any news I have is posted here first.
In terms of releases, I have just finished recording all my parts for a new album, once more in Kevock Digital Studios with Ian McCalman. 16 songs were worked on, 12 of which will form the basis of a new album to be released later in the year, whilst the remaining 4 will be put onto to a limited edition EP. I’m currently in rehearsals with a variety of musicians at the moment, with a view to them recording their parts over the next few months.
And at last, there are also talks of work on a further limited edition release with long-term collaborator Tom Merritt-Smith (Carefree Prisoner & Impasse).
I will be on the road again in Germany in February and hope to see friends, old & new, then.
All the very best to you all for the coming year.
