It’s been a really productive time this past month as I’ve been in the studio recording some songs which I can’t wait to share with you. I really love the creative process of recording and have recorded a lot of my material in the area including all of my debut album ‘Slipstream’ and the acoustic version of second album ‘Lost Again’. This time I’ve recorded a few songs with Jose McGill who is the singer and guitarist of renowned local band The Vagaband. The band have gained a big following on the UK festival scene and play a soulful mix of Americana, blues, jazz and rock and Jose has been adding some lovely subtle instrumentation.
The 11th annual 50 Christmas Trees in a Church at All Saints Dickleburgh, drew to a close on Sunday, December 7, with the prize-giving for the 23 most popular trees voted by visitors to the festival.
Langmere Garden Club’s tree was the winner in the adult category for the second year running with ‘Winter in the Potting Shed’ including Bill and Ben. Pink Ladies Tractor Road Run (for Cancer Research UK) came second with a sparkling pink tree and RBL Dickleburgh Branch were third with ‘Twas the night before Christmas’ filled with larger-than-life mice and with reindeer circling above.
Hey everyone, I’m really excited that my original Christmas single ‘St Benedict’s Christmas Fair’ is now available on iTunes!
The song is a bittersweet acoustic ballad about how hard it is saying goodbye during the festive period. I had the song written for awhile and it’s a really personal one, all the mixture of emotions felt when I was leaving home to embark on a new adventure.It’s the first single that I’ve recorded and played all the guitars, percussion and vocals, and mixed myself which was really fulfilling. I love the magical creative process of layering a track and the song has already earned radio airplay and some lovely reviews:
