Thank you to everyone that came to the Night&Day gig last month! I had such a great time!
Since then Keith and myself have been back to Vibe Studios to record more acoustic songs and I sent 'Day To Remember' out to site members. If you haven't joined up..it's on the home page.
Also been working on a couple of songs with Phil in London and drawing some doodles for the next batch of paintings to go with that set of songs. I can't believe a whole year has gone by without me picking up a paintbrush but with all the new songs and rehearsing with Keith the time has flown! I have the ideas now and so looking forward to getting my canvases and making a start! Theyre just doodles on paper at the moment but in my head they look like bright colourful sparks of light.
Just booked my train down to London at the end of September!!
Can't wait to get back in the studio with Phil. I've been working on a new song called 'I Ain't Got No Time For That' . It seems to be about a boyfriend thats messing her about but I wrote it after spending too long with my sisters kids....oh I'll get in trouble for writing that. It's just sometimes kids really push your buttons don't they? I love them, I'm just not great when I'm tired...or hungry... it's not pretty when I'm both :-0 !! Anyway... everything is fuel for the fire and I love a good fire. Must be something to do with being a Sagittarian, maybe. The other thing about Sagittarians is they love to be on the move and it's certainly true for me. Even just driving in my car... I love it! Singing away and thinking of new melodies.
It's a beautiful day! We've had such an amazing Summer weather wise. I took these photos this morning and saw more butterflies today than I have in ages. The grass hoppers were chirping away too and there's a couple of young calves in the field that came over to lick my hand. The blackberries are still red but theres going to be lots of them when they're ready to eat. I do love this time of year!
I had a great day at Vibe Studios in Manchester! Keith played guitar and Martin recorded us, it was great. So there's more songs ready for anyone who joins my site! We recorded Charming Man, Caught Between 2 Worlds and Rollercoaster. I'm so looking forward to going back again soon!
Great rehearsal with Keith today!
Started working on Caught Between 2 Worlds.
It's great to add a bit of sparkly darkness to the set!
Because I've not released an album in so long there's quite a lot of songs stacking up.
I'm thinking it would be good to put all the sun shiny ones together on one happy album and the darker ones on a different one.
Each time I think about it I see colours. Two sides of the spectrum separating, purples and blues one way and yellows and oranges the other. Pools of emotion really, like moods rather than pictures, feelings rather than specific thoughts.
I haven't painted for a while but I'm definitely getting the urge.
