Great gig last night at the Newbiggin maritime centre. The audience were fantastic, I could not have asked for any better. Also played with some top acts who I hope to play along in the future. The Pastures are a great 4 peice with amazing harmonies. Carl Stiansen is a solo artist with great energy and catchy upbeat tempos.
I have been working on a new song for a couple of month now, it has been a difficult one to write as it is about a personal tragedy. The feel of the song took some time to get right (tempo and key), but is finally taking shape. I have got a basic track layed down for the other musicians who are working on this project with me.
I will be eventually recording it for sale and all the proceeds will be going to Cameron's kisses which is raising money for baby wards throughout the North East.
I am redesigning the site at the moment so it is mobile device friendly. once it is completed I will be updating more often and adding new stuff.
Two things I usually stay clear of when writing, are politics and religion. There is a lot of tension and anger throughout the world and it is based on beliefs and greed. ‘Numbers’ is a song about the very few that control our lives and dictate to us what we should think and do.
I am currently updating the website, so you will see it change a little over the next week or two. I am hoping to set the site up so it is more like a blog site as I will be posting updates from time to time.
