Well its been a while since I posted anything, but the truth is I've been busy with a lot of different things that I am excited about, not all to do with music.
At the end of January I started recording some track's, and they will soon be ready to release. I plan on releasing my first single 'When it returns' in April.
In the world of busking, so far this year I have had an old man kick and push my stuff, and a few people move me along just after setting up my gear. You might think this is common, but I hadn't experienced this in the whole year I have been busking. The worst thing I had was a druggie asking me if he could buy himself a coffee out of the money in my case haha.
I have been busy playing gigs and building up my bookings for the rest of the year as well as next, and it is looking good. I have been a full time musician for 7 months now and I feel like I can safely say its safe now. Winter was tough, but somehow me and Marlena (my fiancee) got through it and summer looks like its going to be good.
February was my quietest month, however it gave me plenty of time to write new songs and expand my setlist. I have taken a break from playing in Doncaster as it seems to be full of busker's and street performers already, and I think it would be to chaotic to jump in with whats already going on.
I have found that having a spot where its quieter, and less obstructive is better for me. My music is relaxed and it seems to lend itself to that environment, but obviously, you need people too, so finding a place that has a good balance is key.
I also haven't played in Retford for a long time, there's no reason other than the fact that I play at a bar there twice a month now, so thought it might be better to not over do it. However, its getting warmer and there are more and more opportunities to get out now, so I'll be back soon.
Thanks for reading, until next time..
Last year brought me the opportunity to pursue my dream as a a musician, and I have managed to start building on that, so much so that I can now fund a few project's this year which I am incredibly excited about. I am booked in the studio for 20th January to record 4 new tracks.
I do feel a lot of pressure as I want these to turn out as good as I imagine them so I have been putting an enormous amount of work into making sure I know everything before diving in.
I have a really good feeling about this year, I want to show people what I am truly capable of, my passion. I want to share my music.
