Sorry for having been 'off the radar' for so long - life is just so hectic all of the time these days, even on holiday in la belle France it was hectic; but very agreeable!
There's not an awful lot to tell you just now other than my music has had some quality airplay over the last few months and the festivals and gigs we did in the summer and early autumn were very enjoyable. Like most musicians I love to play live and get a real buzz from performing for people who appreciate what we do and who come and speak to us at the end. Lovely to make these connections.
One little bit of recent excitement was when I went along to the Born to be Wide music seminar last week in Edinburgh with the intention of saying hello to Stewart Cruickshank who is a co-producer of Iain Anderson's Radio Scotland show. I am delighted that Iain plays my music on a regular basis and gives me a name check when there's some event to publicise. Well I did meet Stewart, and a very nice chap he is too. He also happens to be a fount of good advice and has a great deal of experience and expertise in the music industry and was sharing his extensive knowledge with the audience last week. He also used me as an example of how to nurture a professional relationship with radio producers and presenters, praising my music and albums too. I did feel a tad embarrassed as I wasn't expecting that at all but was also really chuffed that he thought that way about me and my music. All good.
Hope life is treating you well. Why not join me as a Facebook friend and keep up to date that way too?
Until the next gig or the next time we meet, whichever is first, a bientot mes amis.
