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.
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!
Why can’t everyone just be kind to one another? That’s something I ask myself a lot. More so since May 22nd 2017, after a heinous attack occurred at the end of a pop concert, in my home city – Manchester.
To financially support my music, I work as a Pharmacy Assistant in a local hospital. Most of my work is ward-based, so I’m reminded of illness every weekday, which can be distressing at times. But the past week-or-so has been tougher than usual. Partly because I’m super-sensitive, but also because of the sheer trauma that has impacted on the city.
However, through the darkness of it all, a lot of kindness really shone through. Promisingly, it doesn’t seem to fade with generations either. For instance, I visited St Annes Square a few days ago, to quietly observe the carpet of flowers and tributes that the city had laid down. It didn’t feel right to take photos, so I didn’t, but something that really stuck with me was a poster that was left by a youngster… It was a line drawing of a creature on a yellow piece of card. Either side of the creature, a lollipop was sellotaped onto its hands. Written on the poster was: ‘To all the children in the sky’. So simple, but so effective.
I left St Annes Square with even more emotions than what I went with. But a few days later, and several thoughts analysed, I’m slowly getting back to my old routine. Needless to say, the incident that happened on May 22nd 2017 and all of those it affected will never be forgotten, but the kindness and strength of the city (from all generations and backgrounds) that showed, at such a difficult time, won’t be forgotten either.
