Well, where did that three week chunk of time just go? It's not an insubstantial amount of time and, while in France, it seemed to last forever (in a good way). While in France we played in a venue where we'd played before and this has led to a couple of new and interesting leads for next summer.
Anyway, here we are again and I must say it's great to be home and preparing for all of the exciting events in the next couple of months including the Jazz and Blues Festival gigs this weekend and next and the Fringe show in August.
There are also other Festival gigs that have been added to my diary so please check out the gig page for details. Just before going off on holiday I met Peter Asher at a film about the Troubadour Club in LA which was being premiered at the EIFF. I really value his opinion as he was James Taylor's manager for many, many years and if you know anything about me at all you'll know I'm a big JT fan. To cut a long story short, he likes my music! See the reviews page for what he has to say...
Better go and do something more pressing now but I hope to see some of you at a gig in the near future. Please come over and say hello. That would be lovely :D
Interviewed by Vic Morgan on BBC Radio Devon on Tuesday's show which was a bit scary but fun. I didn't have a clue what he was going to ask and at one point his questions led to an artist I'd studied at Art College - Caspar David Friedrich! Never thought he'd be part of a music conversation.
If you missed the interview, you can still hear it on the BBC iPlayer for the next few days, but of course the whole thing is here on the site forever. Just go to the audio page and listen to your hearts' content.
Just a quick note to say that BBC Radio Devon's Vic Morgan will be interviewing me on Monday, 13th June from 10.00pm. There are direct links to Vic's profile and also to the BBC iPlayer on the gigs page. Don't forget, the programme will be available for 7 days after that, in case you can't stay up quite that late...!
So you know, the interview was recorded last night (Monday) but isn't broadcast until this evening (Tuesday 14th June). The details on the gigs page are still the same though - enjoy!
Seems like only yesterday that I updated this blog. Where does the time go? Here we are again and there are two imminent gigs in the diary for the Rosie Nimmo Band. One on the 31st May in the 3 Harbours Festival and the other on 10th June in the Leith Festival. All relevant details on the gigs page.
Our rehearsal last week was so much fun. I always enjoy rehearsals and this one was no exception. I love hearing everything come together and I think you'll be delighted with the results.
Highlights for me last week were Emma's backing vocals and Stuart's understated guitar although everyone's contribution just created the magic mix for me. If we can keep that momentum building and convey it at our gigs I'll be delighted. Hope you're all happy bunnies and that the summer weather (well, almost) is bringing a smile to your faces.
Thanks to Martin for keeping my website updated and all-singing, all-dancing.
Just a quick update to say - the online review site, Fatea liked 'Home'
so much so, (see their great review on reviews page) that they asked me to be part of one of their occasional free downloads. This compilation CD/download includes a wide variety of fabulous music by a host of other artists - and it also features the title track from my CD 'Home'. The Aspirations compilation CD is out today and is available here as a gift to you.
Hope you enjoy it :)
Well, back in sunny Britain again after a fortnight's blissful break in la belle France where the sun shone and the birds sang every day. Absolutely wonderful!
Hard as it was to come back, I've missed the bustle of life here and the music that is just about to be resumed (no gigs in France this time as our usual venue is still closed following the owner's untimely death).
We had a good send-off just before the holiday though with our gig as part of Secret CDs in the Voodoo Rooms. Most enjoyable night and a great variety of music/musicians which included Polly and the Billet Doux and a Glasgow band called Sparrowhawk who had me laughing out loud a lot :) I strongly recommend that you get yourselves along there sometimes - first Wednesday of each month.
I'm playing at the Shore Bar with Stuart this coming Sunday, 1st May, from 8pm and he and I are again at Cafe Grande on 15th May from 7.00pm.
At the end of May and the beginning of June we're doing some festival gigs so please put a note of these in your diary. More details on gigs page.
Better go now and catch up with all the usual end-of-holiday stuff. All the best, Rosie :)
