Happy New Year to all of you!
After an incredibly hectic twelve months during which I released my fifth solo album If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous (which has made several “Best of 2018” lists in recent months and was named Album of the Year by the Across The Universal Soundscape music blog) and played 124 gigs in the UK, USA, Ireland, Netherlands and Germany, I’m looking forward to a somewhat quieter start to 2019.
This coming Thursday I’ll be returning to The Acorn Penzance, where the album had its launch just under a year ago, for my first gig of the new year. It’s always a treat to kick things off with a “hometown” show, and I’m looking forward to dusting off some older material that I haven’t performed live in years (much of which I had to relearn from scratch by listening back to my own recordings and struggling to figure out what I was doing on the guitar!) while continuing to perform tracks from the current album. I’m also getting ideas for new songs and instrumentals, but they need a bit of percolation time before I attempt them in public, so in the meantime it’s nice to stir things up a bit by revisiting some long lost friends.
Huge thanks for your support, and I hope to see you down the road!
