Book my Face

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Hullo! I am lazier than ever at updating this thing. However, there has been a development! I can now be “liked” on Facebook, which should lead to more accurate updates if I get a gig, or do a new album, or release “Cat on the Pitch (Dubstep Remix)” in an attempt to cash in on whatever that was.

Click Here and hit ‘Like’ to do the DEED.

In sort-of-related news, I have also re-released ‘Hide & Seek’ via bandcamp. I was listening back to it the other day for INSPIRATION and found it a bit muddy-sounding so I added some extra SPARKLE and three bonus tracks that I had lingering around from the same recording sessions.

It’s still free!

Next gig at the moment is July 22nd, at the Red House in Sheffield, as part of the Tram Lines festival.

Hello. I haven’t updated this in a while, despite having several gigs, new songs and all that, ticking over nicely for much of the last however many months.

I am pleased to announce that the 2011 entry into the Cry Me A River Project is now online, and it was produced using the excellent Android app, Nanoloop.

Also, I have just made Plots & Plans into a free download, why not.

Also also, I suppose I could tell you what things I have liked this year, couldn’t I? WELL OK!

I successfully PLAYED A GIG in England’s fashionable “London” last night, and here’s proof! A few of my songs, including a FIRST EVER performance of the science-based romance duet that I co-wrote with MJ Hibbett, have popped up on the TOTALLY ACOUSTIC PODCAST!

Hear it here!

Also of note is Mark’s blog post about the night, which explains the POETRY-BASED TROUBLE that threatened the safety of all concerned!

It’s 2011, “Year of the Vorton”. Perhaps. At least, I have FOUR things scheduled already, which is a huge UPTURN for me!

FIRST: I have a gig in Birmingham on January 22nd! Details in this picture, I’m on at 4:30pm:

SECOND: I’m on the provisional line-up for the 2011 GeekPop festival! I’ll be sending them some new recordings (maybe even videos?) for my performance on the Comical Flask virtual stage. Also playing are Jeffrey Lewis and MJ Hibbett, among a ton of other excellent stuff.

THIRD: A gig in Nottingham, with a man named Hibbett – whoever that might be – on February 21st. See here:

FOURTH: I’m returning to MJ Hibbett’s (that man again) Totally Acoustic at The Lamb, London! I’m playing with Owen Tromans on April 19th.

In addition to all this, it’s nearly time for February Album Writing Month again! EXCITING TIMES.

You Wait Ages For a Gig…
