What I’m working on Now

16/8/17

The EP ‘Polar’ is released. I’ve been to see Phil Walker for Guitar Sessions and working on my next EP songs which will have more of a Rock feel.

10/7/17

Every day I’ve been working on songs. Now I move to release mode. Off performing on Royal Caribbean this week but will be doing a lot from the laptop.

27/4/17

Immersing myself in music like I haven’t done for years. Daily listening, comping, brainproducing, fine tuning. I’m going to drop this EP without any notice. Studio in 2 days will be an all nighter. I have a list.

13/4/17

I started on March 5 and continuing strong in my new studio. I have also reconnected with a great friend and brilliant producer, and we are very close to releasing an EP. Many hours in the studio since my last /now entry, and more to come.

I have found the new Studio in London I’ll be working on to record my next release. Fortress studio in Old St. I did some training on their equipment last week. I start there on March 5.

Back in Leicester for a week break from London. Wrote a new song and nailed the guitar to track. It’s working title is ‘Cheapskate babe at the silent disco’

29/1/17

Saw a band called Aquilo on Thursday. Also checked out a new London studio. I have no piano or guitar for the next 7 days so making the most of the different brain space.

27/11/16

I’ve wound up Forest Studios and now working from home with new equipment and a renewed creative flow. Since my last update I’ve done a 10 day backpacking trip across Southern Europe, gigged in the UK and Ireland and continued running my flat as an airbnb. Musically I am working on Piano songs mainly.

2 consecutive days recording in the Forest and a planned 3 more next week. Lockdown in London.

13/5/16

This week stepping out of the creative space and getting down to (mainly) music business. I like to keep the two separate. A good week sending and returning important emails, and working on my website.

6/5/16

Forest studio is set up. Last 2 weeks I’ve been tracking drums, bass and guitars and doing little else. Head down bum up.

15/4/16

I’ve spent the last week setting up the Forest studio. Jos and I turned a blank, empty room into a beautiful recording space. It took 2 days of hard yakka. Followed by 3 days of sessions/tryouts for musicians to work on the new album

3/4/16

Contacting musicians and organising sessions in the new studio starting next week.

27/3/16

Thursday I took out a 1 month lease on a studio space in South London. My friend Jos and I are setting up a studio there. bought a drum kit and spent the day stripping it down and changing it’s colour.

10/3/16

Studio/Producer visit tomorrow as a potential location for new album recording. Jared Hascheck, an old friend from Melbourne, is doing some Piano arrangements for me in preparations for pre-production.

22/2/2016

Been back in London for the last week to demo the album tracks. Got them all done in 4 days. Tonight back home to Leicester. Gig in Wirral on the weekend.

9/2/2016

Getting back to my own bed and my own head after the trip. Clearing the inbox. No guitar or piano in my flat at the moment so a bit lost.

30/12/15

Penned 9 songs for the next album, all written in the same month, in the same room. 2 Gigs in the next 2 days, including NYE at the Venue, London. Hope to get 1 more song started before I fly away on 1 Jan for a month. Visiting friends and family, and some co-writing in Surfers.
