Well, here we are again. Holidays over and album successfully launched last night in the Voodoo Rooms Speakeasy. What a great night I had and so did the others present to judge from their comments. In fact, I had a ball (wearing a vintage ballgown – very appropriate). It was a delight to play with such a great bunch of musicians so here’s to you Mairi, Stuart, Martin, Tommy and Marc.
While I was away in France for a week, tracks from the album were played on three different Radio Scotland shows. Ricky Ross standing in for Iain Anderson played Lazy and Mellow on Thursday, 22nd just a few hours after Archie Fisher had played ‘Spider and Fly’ while Stephen Duffy gave Pavlov’s Dog a spin on Wednesday’s Jazz House. Thank you so much Radio Scotland.
And also a huge thanks to Alan Morrison, Arts Editor of the Sunday Herald for the great review he gave the album in yesterday’s edition.
I know there’s another review in the pipeline for R2 magazine and I think it’s out next week. Check it out why don’t you?!
As if all that wasn’t enough, the final of Radio Forth’s ‘One to Watch’ competition is next Sunday night, 1st November in Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh. As one of the five finalists I am really looking forward to a great night. Kick off 8pm and tickets £5 in aid of charity.
Got to go now but hope to see some of you at some of the upcoming events. :D
