Another exciting Manchester gig with my live band in the new year!
It’s been a tricky couple of weeks, but musically everything’s been great. My gig in Manchester, at the Peer Hat, was super enjoyable, and my new single Outside In was broadcast on Sean McGinty’s BBC Introducing show last night. Positive thinking let’s be having you 💜
Here’s me – fresh off a bus from rehearsals in Manchester, at BBC Radio Lancashire in Blackburn:
I had a lovely catch-up with Sean McGinty on his BBC Introducing in Lancashire show. We spoke about my experience recording a live video at BBC North West and a couple of other cool things that are around the corner… Check it out here:
Thanks to Marco Frezza, for creating these wonderful pieces of artwork, to accompany the release of my sophomore studio EP ‘Butterfly Effect’ (out now!!!)…
Please see below, for the teaser trailer, for my new synth-infused track Sober (official video available on Vevo next week!):
Lastly, I recently discovered that Blink won the Pop category on the OurStage competition. I was so excited about this when I found out, as the OurStage community voted for the track, which means that… people like the track!!! I understand that my music won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it is a lovely feeling when I feel connected to people through music (such as sharing a love for another artist or relating to another artist’s song)… It makes me feel less lonely! So, I’m over the moon that Blink got voted for!
I’ll be performing at a gig tonight in Wigan, so will probably spend the rest of the day preparing for that.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
On Sunday 29th October 2017, I attended my first ever video shoot! It was a wonderful experience and Wasp Video were a great team to work with on this project. I won’t be giving away which single it’s been created for just yet though!!!
Here’s a video Wasp Video shared on Facebook, containing behind-the-scenes photographs of the shoot:
In other news, Blink was featured on one of Music Is My Radar’s playlists – wahoo!!! Additionally, I have been added to the line-up of a few more gigs around the North West of England, which I’m really looking forward to!
‘Sam Leoh is our second act, a singer with a distinctive, plaintive voice, performing electro-pop with a keyboardist who stands behind three analog synthesisers. Leoh‘s voice occasionally sounds reminiscent of Scadinavian artists like Bjork, and the overall sound is a good example of the electro-pop genre with muscular, propulsive synth-riffs, crunchy pads and formidable electronic beats. The set varied between moments of static chilliness and pure floor-filling pop.’ Andy Holland:Getintothis
The past few weeks have been really enjoyable. As mentioned in my previous post, I had a chat with Sean McGinty over at BBC Introducing in Lancashire (still available at BBC Intro Lancashire! (not for long though))… and I also performed at a gig in East Ardsley. The gig was really fun, and great preparation for future gigs!
Most recently, as highlighted above, I performed at the lovely 81 Renshaw venue in Liverpool, with my bandmate, to support Siobhan Wilson. It was a really special evening!!
A final note… I’ve noticed I’ve spent a lot of time recently on social media, not necessarily posting, but constantly checking. I’ve decided to take a short break from social media, as I’d like to put a little more of my spare energy and time into creating new material at the moment. The rest of my energy and time will be, as always, spent on my paid work and developing as a live artist (rehearsing & gigs – wahoo!!!!!).
I don’t see any harm in keeping my blog up-to-date though 😉
Catch you soon!
Love and thanks, as always,
