Yes! I have turned 30! How amazing is that? Now I'm pretty sure the majority of people lately have thought me to be bizarre on account of wanting to celebrate the fact
I am ten decades old... there is currently a helium balloon floating above my monitor... Some have wanted to make me feel as ancient as the granite on the moors but honestly I really don't feel like that. It feels like number that has no bearing on who I am or where I am in life. I don't feel particularly connected to it and it hasn't changed me and on a more personal level I am completely shocked and grateful that I have gotten this far in life. You need only listen to a few tracks of mine to hear that there have been dark times - I was recently completely taken back by the fact that of all the tracks I kept sending BBC Introducing they played one that was largely about suicide...maybe they didn't know it was ;) But hey this is the time, this is the place for dusting off. I've been listening to a lot of the lyrics floating about the airwaves these days and it definitely seems to be a time of acceptance; of anxieties, imperfections if only we could accept time? No not my album :D (inside joke). I know I'm coming across as a pretentious arse but I think I make a good point there and it is time we all accepted time and change - although nothing will stop me moisturising religiously, I do not have to accept the ravages of time through a lack of self care :D he he So that's my deep and heavy thoughts on turning 30 man, now onto the good stuff...
I've been busy! I'm really focusing in on music at long LONG last. I've had a string of strike-outs job-wise and a few health wobbles as a result but now what with embracing who I am and change and what not I have realised the universe has been trying to beat me into submission and get me on the right path. Point taken universe, please retract club... so as you may have seen more buttons are appearing in the menu and more strings are appearing on the bow so to speak and I have to say I am loving life! I have lots of gigs coming up, so many so my own impending wedding seems to of taken a back seat with plans! It's great though and I'm feeling more inspired than ever and this wonderful February sun is certainly helping sustain the optimism.
The biggest date for the calendar at the moment is the Johnny Cash & June Carter Tribute evening at The Plough Arts Centre of April 12th 2019 as I am literally pouring everything I've got into getting that set sparkling. I've tallied it up and so far there are 6 brand new tracks on the set, compared with last years in October. I feel like we're developing a good range of the Cash/Carter repertoire and I'm determined to make it an unforgettable evening. Johnny & June have meant so much to me and their music truly does live on and I can't wait to share with you all what we've been working on. Click here for tickets: Johnny Cash Tribute Tickets
So there you have it, I shall waffle no further as I watched Monty Python & The Holy Grail last night so I am in full waffle mode...it's dangerous.
Take care and thank you, as always, for your continued love and support - and for listening on Spotify because it keeps this website up and running!
