So this is the new year

Those of you Death Cab for Cutie fans will probably be singing the next part of this tune…

The song basically concerns itself with not feeling any different just because it’s a new year. I would usually agree, but this year I do feel different. It’s hard not to when there’s so much to look forward to!

The Singing for Pleasure group is running again, I’m now teaching piano as well as singing and thoroughly enjoying it. Still keen to record an EP of some sort this year, however for one reason or another that’s taken a bit of a backseat currently. I may have to record some new stuff on Soundcloud just as a rough idea. I’ve been furiously writing new songs over the past few months. I think it comes from learning more Bach on the piano, he gets the creative juices going.

Also very much enjoying playing with a covers band in Nottingham. Formed mainly to play at friends’ weddings, I’m enjoying singing without having to focus on an instrument too. Also it’s fun to sing in German, do some rapping, sing like a man and sing blithely about economical downturns. If you want specifics, let me know…

Ooh, also, gig coming up on the 4th February at the Bookcafe in Derby. I will be playing alongside the extremely talented Delicata who I’ve played alongside at the Quad. Particularly enjoy their version of “Heard it Through the Grapevine” and their own song “Waltzing Away“, joyous and sublime…
