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:
Another weekend over with! It’s been another busy, but thoroughly enjoyable weekend… I spent Saturday rehearsing and planning the next few months of music-related activities.
Rehearsing last week!
Today (Sunday), I spent some quality time with my Mum & Dad at Bodnant Garden. The weather wasn’t great, but (as always) we didn’t let this dampen our spirits!
In terms of my music journey overall, my spirits have definitely been lifted since uploading Blink to Amazing Tunes and BBC Introducing a couple of weeks ago… It’s been broadcast on Shell Zenner’s Amazing Radio show, BBC Introducing Lancashire, and BBC Introducing Manchester – WAHOOOOOO!!
I’m currently playing around with ideas on a Novation Circuit, to try to incorporate more into my performance, alongside my vocals. Eventually I’ll be investing in a synth too, in order to add some synth parts to my part of the set. Mike (pictured) is totally ace at performing the bulk of the tracks on his synths though and I’m really looking forward to us going out on stage somewhere near you soon!
Exciting plans are currently being discussed about: event locations, video shoots, artwork, new music, release dates, demo recording, and merchandise…. So, stay-tuned!!!!!
I’ve recently returned from a lovely holiday that I had with some of my family in the Isle of Wight. In fact, this is my first day back at home and the last day of annual leave (for a while)!
Isle of Wight is definitely a place I’d recommend; the scenery is beautiful and there’s plenty to do on the island for various ages! One of my favourite viewpoints is near where the old Needles rocket testing site is – the views across the Solent are breathtaking.
I am sad that such a lovely break had to come to an end, but at the same time, it’s nice to be back with my home comforts… I have plenty to look forward to with music too!
There’s two new alt-pop studio-recorded tracks waiting to be released:

Sober artwork created by Sam Leoh
Also, I’m back rehearsing at Blueprint Studios, already with a few booked gigs towards the end of the year to look forward to!!
The past few days, and the next few days, have been/will be very family orientated in our house. I love it. I’m fortunate to be close to my siblings, and cherish the time I get to spend with them, especially now that they’ve all flown the nest!
I’m very fortunate to have loving and supportive parents too; so this post is to highlight how important my family are to me.
There’s one album that exists that always reminds me of spending time with my family, whenever I listen to it – it’s ‘Graceland’ by Paul Simon. My sister used to always loop it in the car whilst we were all road-tripping… It’s a brilliant album, which evokes brilliant memories for me…
