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:
It was great to be featured, for the second consecutive year, on BBC Introducing in Lancashire’s ‘Best Of’ show. I’m really thankful for all of the radio support that Sean McGinty has given my music since my first upload… 2018 will hopefully be just as exciting in terms of my musical journey (I’m currently looking forward to being an owner of a Novation MiniNova synth in a couple of weeks!!!!!).
More new material is on its way in 2018… For now, if there are any Spotify users out there that are interested in listening to some under-the-radar alt-synth-pop tunes, then please check out my latest music via the following link! Thank you!
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:
Also, I’m back rehearsing at Blueprint Studios, already with a few booked gigs towards the end of the year to look forward to!!
Happy holidays to anyone starting theirs!
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.
So world, please be kind! 🙂
