& Now the News
After much nagging, I’ve extended the gig guide to 2 weeks so people get a little more notice as to what’s coming up. It’s difficult in this day and age to know exactly what we’re doing that far ahead, and we walk the fine line between info and over exposure, but I’ll bow to the pressure and at least give it a shot. The dates will rollover each week.
It’s still important to check out the upcoming shows in the giglist. This is the longe range sensor for the really faithfull and we’ve always got great stuff coming up. Something there for everyone! So you can plan ahead.
I’m getting a lot of interest in my original songs and very excited at the prospect of my first ever original album (well 90% of it is) which draws ever nearer to completion. Lots of requests now for my songs and people asking to cover them! What we need now is your support by buying them. I am totally independent, I’m not signed to anyone and I don’t use streaming services or itunes, simply because we don’t get payed enough – a basic marketing decision. If you like my songs (and 17,000 + hits on youtube, suggest there is some interest) please support me by parting with a buck for a download from time to time.
You can check them out here (you can listen in full and purchase if you like it)
Many people complain to me that there’s nowhere to go to find good live music. I think, ever since I’ve been listing gigs regularly on my website, I’ve well & truly proven that wrong. We need your support & your bums on our seats people. The talent’s there, the venue’s are open, the beer’s cold, all it needs is YOU!
