Winter was kind to us this time round. January and February have slid past me almost unnoticed. I have not minded the dark evenings and the relentless rain. I’ve always taken comfort in the water. As trees and buds prepare to bloom new life I’m reminded of all the possibility Spring holds. Life is good, my state of mind has altered and that has changed, well…. everything. I say goodbye to Brixton and say hello to something else.
Folks, it is time for a new chapter. Am so excited for the next couple of months, can’t wait to share my plans with you all. It’s been a really creative time for me the last few months, learning guitar has caused a dam to burst. Creativity and inspiration seems to come round in 2.5 year cycles for me and it’s been interesting to chart. Autumn/Spring 2006….Summer 2009….Winter 2012….SPRING 2014.

Very happy to announce I have landed my first ever TV sync placement! ‘All These Days’ will feature in EMMERDALE on March 12th. I think the show is about farmers? Anyway, this is an extra pleasant piece of news because it is apparently quite rare for a music supervisor to select a track from an unknown artist [let alone one with no label or management backing] so yes. Horray and tune in for larks!
If your art changed nothing, would you still do it? If not, then why are you doing it to begin with? If the answer is yes, then don’t quit.
Forget the stats, the numbers, the wealth, the prestige, the popularity, the things you imagine to be waiting for you on the other side of ‘success.’ They’re not there, and if they are, they won’t stay long. Instead, work tirelessly to make your soul happy. Keep going until you’re standing before a big, glorious creation made by you, for you. Your baby—made of cells, or paper, or clay, or words. That’s yours.
Be proud. You did it for the simple joy of creating. There is nothing more to life than that.
So don’t quit.- fearful adventurer
