Dear Lovely Ones,
It's Easter time as well and like most people I'm taking time out to sit back and relax for a few days. For me, this time of year is one of regeneration and renewal. There's not the stresses of Christmas, simply the joys of being alive and having the choice how we spend this holiday.
Leading up to this break has been some wonderful time in the studio with my co-producer Anthony Stewart. What he doesn't know about music isn't worth thinking about. From a chance encounter to working with him on HERE ON THE ROAD and having him play live in my trio I'm now joyfully doing a full album at his Red Brick Music studio.
I'm now at the stage of recording where all the songs have basic structure, guide vocals and are now ready for drum tracks to be added. I've learnt, once again, more about recording and I'm very excited at how this new album will turn out. Yeah, I know, it's early days but someone wise once told me that "you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear" and if a song sounds great when it's just two instruments then it's going to sound fabbo when there are more added.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter break and safe travels to those who are on the road.
lots of love
