Well where did that month go….?
Have had lots of great news this month:
Firstly, its been confirmed that I’m going back to LA throughout August and recording the final six sings that will make up my Album. The working title is “Flying Like Peter Pan’ but this may change. Anyway, I’ll be working with Bleu again so can’t wait to get started!
Another brilliant opportunity is that Im getting to write with the Grammy award winning Songwriter Darrell Brown when I go back to the states. Darrell is an amazing guy and iI’m so excited at the thought of working with him.
Have some exciting meetings set up in the uk over the next few weeks so hopefully there’ll be more news next time…fingers crossed!
On a personal note, have had a great time hanging out with my friends after being away. As much as I love getting out and about with my music it’s always good to have the opportunity to chill with my mates. Thanks guys.

Where to start?
What a month …(just getting over the jet lag!!)
Had an AMAZING time in Los Angeles – great place full of great people. The sun is always shining and the mountain views are incredible If you wanna check it all out I’ve put together an album of photos to show what I’ve been up to so hopefully you can check them out.
The first thing to tell you is that I was back in the studio recording with the brilliant producer Bleu again and I have come back with 3 fantastic songs that I’m so excited about and can’t wait to share with you. They are called ‘Sadie’, ‘Possibility’ and ‘There It Goes Again’. The feedback I’ve gotten so far has been really great and *fingers crossed* it carries on…
During my final week I attended the ASCAP Expo. This is such a good place to get the chance to listen to people who have already made their career in the music business and meet with those, like me, who are still trying. I really enjoyed listening to Katie Perry talk about her experiences so far. But, the highlight for me was when I got the chance to sing on stage for Darrell Brown, the award winning songwriter & producer. He was so kind and supportive, a truly lovely guy. He invited me to meet with him again a few days later – awesome! Looking forward to getting together with him in a few weeks here in good old UK.
I could go on and on but don’t want to over do it but want to just mention some of the other great people that made my trip the best one yet
Katie Cole – thank you so much for inviting me to play at the Hard Rock Cafe, what a great experience.
Joe Seiders – awesome drummer, whistle blower etc. Awesome guy!
Ken Morton (HIGHWIREDAZE) – great to have shared time with you in the stunning setting of the famous Sunset Tower Hotel. Doing the interview there really gave me a taste of LA high life. Ha Ha.
Sue Drew and all at ASCAP – looking forward to you hearing all the new songs. Thanks for the opportunity to play at this years ASCAP expo. I had a fun time and the Expo was great.
Suzy (Screw Loose!) Skarulis – it was great having your lovely vibe in the studio. And thanks for taking me to my first American house party!
And lastly (but not ‘leastly’!): Kevin and Michael – Thank you for spending the time to show me around ‘Taxi’, and for taking the time to listen to my new songs. Your feedback was fantastic.
Overall I think I’ve gained not only a lot of musical experience but also gained some really great friends!
Cheers everyone. Don’t forget to check out the photos if you can.
Just uploaded my new video, ‘Confession’, to YouTube. It’s a song I wrote and recorded last year with my good friends Jules Reason and ‘Uncle’ Martin Nichols. It was then mixed by the wonderful Steve Power (who’s produced Robbie Williams, McFly, Busted…) so that was pretty awesome. It’s the fourth track on my new EP, ‘One Day’ which is now out on iTunes.
Packing for LA now and off to record some more new songs with Bleu
