Well hi there. It’s been a while since we last communicated. My apologies. Life has been rather hectic recently (good hectic as well as bad hectic, you know how life is) and will become so again in the New Year, but for now let me update you on some of the musical things that have been happening chez moi.
Started the new album with Marc a few weeks ago and, once again, I’m loving the actual process of putting a piece of music together and playing about with ideas. The whole creative thing is hugely enjoyable and with someone like Marc in the producer’s seat we can’t fail. He is full of enthusiasm and some great suggestions for the new songs. I think we make a good team.
I’ve done a few gigs since the Troubadour Club and met some great people. If you’re one of them, hello again.
The album continues to be praised. See the reviews page for the latest reviews from the Scotsman, and from music magazines R2 and Maverick (4.5 stars out of 5). It also continues to get radio play and I know that Mary Ann Kennedy will be playing a track from it on her show this week. That’s Global Gathering on Radio Scotland. Thanks Mary Ann.
I was really sorry to hear about the demise of Border Books when I came back from Prague a couple of weeks ago. It was a shop that had it all I thought. (Not only that but I was lined up to do a gig there and that’s obviously not happening now).
Across the board there seem to be so many people losing their jobs and at such a bad time of year. It’s scary.
On that blue note I’m going to leave you until the next time. If I don’t post before Christmas can I just wish you and yours a peaceful and joyful festive period.
