AUGUST 18TH 2016 -
I HAVE A BLOG SECTION ON MY WEBSITE AND NEVER USE IT! So here i am using it.
So for August so far i’ve been holed up at home - writing, plotting and preparing for the UK tour in November with my new show ‘Meet Me At The Eldorado’.
Jumping between jotting random musings and ideas and chords and words into a little red notebook. Then painting words onto some black cotton i got for a BARGAIN at a local fabric shop, to make some sort of ’set’ for the show.
It’s looking good. Songs i have so far are sounding good and i’m very pleased if somewhat anxious and nervous to see how it all rounds up as a whole project and what a more finished product will look like.
Today some of the promotional print arrived, just the posters. Apparently flyers are due tomorrow. The posters look GOOD. The image and design printed beautifully (Thank you Scott Chalmers for your absolute wizardry in the photo studio and the photoshop!)
The show and tour is seeming so much more real now.
It’s not finished - Theres so much work yet to be done and i’ve set myself a task of writing (MOST OF) a song every 2 days. 70% unusable. Though the occasional spark of inspiration goes off and i get a massive buzz.
A few songs are finished. there are some songs being finished at the moment (with working titles!) -
‘Never Invite A Nihilist To A Dinner Party’
‘Recovering Goth’ (This one of is my favourite song so far!)
‘Ballad of the British High Street’
As the show is looking more complete and i’m happy with song arrangements and feel they’re finished, i’m going to start putting some previews of them on youtube to give an idea of what to expect in the new show!
RIGHT. OK. enough from me.
OVER AND OUT.
PS - COME SEE ME ON TOUR IN THE UK IN NOVEMBER. SWISS DATES ANNOUNCED SOON TOO! :)
