I know I shouldn't jinx it but it's great to have the sun around and some heat. Feels a bit more like home whenever this happens.
It's been a busy while since I last wrote. Gigs in Edinburgh, Manchester, Norwich and Brighton, as well as quite a few in London. Our monthly night at Aces & Eights has been going really well and we've had some great guests sitting in with us. Really inspiring stuff! We'll start it up again after the summer but in the meantime, heck, it's summer! The band and I got into the studio to get going on the new album and the whole experience was really fun, even the mixing. There was just a great atmosphere and I think it shows in the performances. We recorded "Lie Awake" and "Midnight Queen" with gusto.
I just booked a gig in July at the new 12 Bar on Holloway so looking forward to starting a new 12 Bar era.
The new solo record should be out later in the year but it's really a misnomer, as I've had and continue having so many talented friends helping me out on it. I can't wait to share it with you all but for now, I'm enjoying the process.
