I wrote the song about mental health just before the dreaded C word hit the UK and as songs often do it has taken on a meaning of its own with so many wishing to hug there loved ones or see there children, parents or family. For me the mental health aspect of this lockdown is huge and I for one have also suffered, many of you who know me personally understand my own struggles with this game we cal life.
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.
Its a funny old world, like crazy mental! We all had so many dreams and goals for 2020. Start dating, get married, see the world and just be on the earth and bask in all that mother nature has to offer.
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.
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.

Both come from the old school style of songwriting and yet again it really does showcase the Best of British Country.
Cardiff was amazing and I still relive it daily! Such a cool city and a it has a wonderful lust for country music. So to share this night with as many of you as possible is truly magical for me.
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.
