Los Angeles – April 2013 Update

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.

New Video – Confession

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 🙂

March News and Updates

Well, it’s been a crazy 3 months!

January started with the filming of my Video ‘Breathe In’ (now up on YouTube), it was great fun doing this, particularly because I was joined by great musicians Stell, George and James. We gelled straight away.  In fact there could be more news coming from this later this year so watch this space…..

I’ve just finished 6 weeks of UK School Tours. I love doing these and the response I’ve got from all the schools has been amazing.

In amongst all this I did lots of interviews with US based magazines and radio stations. And my ‘One Day’ got some awesome reviews which you can read some of on my Reviews page here on my website. Thanks, as ever, to HighWire Daze, Krankit, Olympic, Red Velvet Radio, Jammin Jukebox, Bruce Brodeen, Pete Amara, CMC-TV and everyone who’s supported me 🙂

Now it’s head down to make sure the songs I’m going to record next month in LA are the best that they can be. It’s really exciting getting everything ready and knowing it won’t be long and I can share new music with you.

Even managed to record a new song called ‘Church Bells’ which I’m really happy with so hoping to upload that for people to hear early May time.

I’m also shooting a video for my song ‘Confession’ in March and my EP, ‘One Day’  with bonus track, is now available on iTunes now.

Oh, and I’ve now got to 10,000 FaceBook ‘Followers’ which is awesome 🙂 Thanks Guys
