Two performances since

I guess this time of year is the time
when you look back and review the year. I am particularly
grateful for the following:
invitations to play longer sets.
I find these far more satisfying than the open-mic
performances. Primarily the longer sets have been
at the Bohemian Night showcases (four in total) but
also for White Bear Productions, HubFest and also
supporting Merv Young and Stuart Wheaton in Aquillo;
Mark Stratton in 12 Truths; and all three in Silverscreen
band at the RhuBar in Basingstoke on two occasions.
Naturally, the zenith was playing for what felt like
my home crowd on 11th
December at The Global Cafe.
Wild used in the radio advert for CavFest.
Much credit should go to Andrew Holdcroft's
guitar work for this great piece of news mid-year.
with Joanne Kelly. You know
when you meet some friends and the energy flows back
and forth and you feel like you're expressing the
person that you really are? Well I felt that was the
case when Joanne interviewed me. I've said before
I thought the interview was successful because of
the preparation that Joanne had done beforehand. It
felt as if I'd expressed myself better in those two
hours than I have ever done with some friends and
family. As one friend (ex-friend! (:-)) put it: "I
just listened to the interview. Really good. You didn't
come across like a tosser at all!"
On that note, it is only left for me
to say thanks for your support this year, as always
it is greatly appreciated. I wish you all a happy Christmas
and a very happy new year. For me I think this next
year could be quite interesting as I'm not sure where
I'm heading except that I feel like I'm going in the
right direction. My next major performance is Bohemian
Night Showcase at Monroe's Rock Cafe (used to be Deja
Vu) in Reading on Friday 18th January 2013. If you fancy
blowing the new year cobwebs away and potentially being
energised for the year to come, it would be great to
see you there.
With Best Wishes,
