2009, you say? Happy New Year to all of you who follow me in my wee online world and to celebrate I’ve re-themed the site with a new look and added a Media Page where you can see my debut video on You Tube. Please spread the word!
I always get really optimistic at New Year and I’ve got big plans for 2009 that have been brewing for a while (hopefully to be revealed soon). I have a great feeling about this year, not least about the launch of my debut album which I’ve been talking about for far too long. Last year I finally did something about it and have 10 days of recording in the bag. A lot of work still to be done and unfortunately my time seems to be always over-committed but steady progress is being made and I hope to update you soon!
Here are some of my highlights from 2008!
Opening the Acoustic Edinburgh festival, featured artist St Andrews Uni freshers week acoustic night, finalist for “Face Off” battle of the bands (acoustic genre).
With Gecko 3…
Gigs all over Scotland and in Newcastle, Brussels and Paris including the Brussels Jazz Festival, supporting Nizlopi, The Five Corners Quintet, Cibelle and Nell Bryden, launching 2009 at Departure Lounge Hogmanay Party.
I’ve been on TV twice with The Gospel Truth choir including performing the Scotland Children in Need single (We Have a Dream) which reached No.1 in the Scottish Singles Chart.
Along with Simon Kirby, I’ve organised and promoted another year of amazing music at Acoustic Edinburgh including a sell-out series of events at the Edinburgh Fringe.
I also cook.
I’m very honoured to have been invited to be featured artist at Edinburgh’s finest and longest-running Open-Mic night (Out of the Bedroom) on Jan 15th at the Canon’s Gait!
See you there & have an amazing 2009!
