I thought I’d check in and see how you are, that you are all doing well and staying safe? It’s testing times isn’t it? It’s all a little nuts, the way the earth has suddenly stopped and everyone is locked in is very weird.
Wow, this last year has been a whirlwind, crazy times, crazy people and a very crazy world. Back last year I had a meltdown with music, a full-on Britney moment where I simply felt I couldn’t do this no more. It was all too much, it was all about the “Business”, no longer about the art.
That has an effect on my mental health and my well being, so I choose to simply do my own thing and just push forward elsewhere with music and life, but first a break and to be honest a long one! Then Phoenix will rise but not in country! Unless country starts to work with the music and get back to the roots of what made country a genre worth loving! Instead of the backstabbing bitchy gender hating culture that it is today.
One song that I feel needs a little bit more love is ‘Outlaw’, I mean it’s different, it’s not an honest country song but it does tell a story and it certainly has a volume up to eleven kinda feel!
I sit and wonder what happened to the artist, the real songwriter who would craft a story or a piece of music that puts with the emotion only a writer can add. What happened to the bands of misfits who banded together to create a world where other misfits could fit in? Everyday I hearContinue reading “The art form of music”
I remember actually announcing the Cardiff gig, way back in May. It seemed like so far away and the build up was insane. Three singles and lots of songwriting in between and the gig came around so quickly! It seemed like just yesterday we booked it and it was over in a flash. The driveContinue reading “We came and man did we play”
So I’ve been busy again, yay! I guess, but yes been busy, writing and crafting new music. Something I have noticed I do is get over excited, I write a song and get in the studio then bang! I hear it and rush it out to the digital platforms. Maybe what I need to do is sit on this stuff longer and put records out. See what I really suck at is promotion, like making a song and promoting it correctly.
It’s almost upon us! Yes, February 14th is almost here and that day marks the release of my full-length album debut. A Message From An Angel gets its own life and a chance for it to breath itself into the world. It’s been a long time coming and many upsets and heartaches in the makingContinue reading “It’s Writing for writing sake”
So I hate hearing myself back, does anyone else? I mean it troubles me so much and I know I should be proud of my music no matter how good it is. I just struggle to find some peace and solace in my music. See I never wanted to sing, It’s not where I feelContinue reading “Listening party for one!”
It’s a burning question for me, how do you sing songs written for someone that’s no longer in your life. You know that one special person who becomes a muse, that one person who you love and cherish more than you do yourself. That allows you to write songs deeper than you have before. ThenContinue reading “The remaining song after the person has gone…”
