I hope you've all had a fun-filled and festive break, eaten too many mince pies (I know I have), and feel happy to leap into the New Year with enthusiasm and energy ;-) I honestly can't wait and if you read on you'll find out why!
Starting the year as I mean to go on, I've got a fab local gig on New Year's Eve. It's in Painswick at a beautiful little hotel and bistro called Cardynham House. It'll be an evening of wonderful food interspersed with bursts of song from yours truly :-) There are limited tables for this one and most have already gone, so if you're up for it I'd suggest booking a table via 01452 810030 to avoid disappointment.
If you can't make it to that gig, fear not as I've got loads of other gigs coming up! I'm doing a mini tour of East Anglia, as you can see from the poster above I'm playing Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich, all at great venues. Check out the gigs page of my website for more details and ticket links.
Also in January:
7th - Flat Planet, Soho, London
17th - Bradford Upon Avon Folk and Roots Festival
28th - Surya, Kings Cross, London
Very excitingly I am now able to announce that the official launch date of the album is April 6th and even more excitingly that I will be doing a huge national support tour to coincide with the release as well as some headline dates. Looking forward to telling you more about that in the next week or so!
I got some fantastic news last week - 2 of my songs reached the finals of the UK songwriting competition, "Old Eyes" and "A Beautiful Mind". This was such a lovely Christmas present and a great start to my album launch campaign :-)
Thanks so much for all your love and support this year, you've made it one of the best ever and I honestly can't believe everything that has happened. Here's to 2015! Much love to you all :-)
Finally, here are a couple of videos that I recorded last week for you to enjoy - just click on the pictures to watch. Keep an eye on my blog for news about the tour. Lots more pics will be up on my website in the next day or so as well. xxx
Wow, it's been a full on week! 4 gigs, 2 trips to London, a professional photo-shoot, album planning, ahhhhhhhhh!
Thanks to everyone who's come along to a gig this week, it's been lovely to meet some new fans as ever and I'm really looking forward to performing at Bournemouth Folk Club tomorrow night! If you're in the area it'd be awesome to see you there at 7pm :-) tickets are £7 and you can grab yourself a couple here http://www.wegottickets.com/location/12794
Don't forget I'll be performing at Maggie's Christmas Carol Concert on December 18th! Maggie's does fantastic work to support people and families affected by Cancer this concert is going to be a night filled with cheer, great music and of course mince pies and mulled wine. Loads of tickets have already been sold and it's a really popular event so make sure to book in advance - https://www.maggiescentres.org/how-you-can-help/take-part/all-events/maggies-cheltenham-christmas-carol-concert/
I went up to London this week for a photo-shoot in Camden, got my make-up done and everything, it was so much fun (but freezing)! Hopefully can share some pics with you soon!!
Loads of album plans being made for next year including a huge tour that I can't wait to tell you about...not long to go :-) :-) :-)
Ho Ho Hope you're having an amazing run up to Christmas! xxx
