It’s been a very busy summer so far with plenty more to do before the start of September!
I’ve been gigging with Sankara the most this summer and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The West End Club in Barry had us back for a full set of energetic riffs, double bass drums, keys and some grooving bass lines too! We followed this with a gig at The Brewhouse in Cardiff with support from Tom Bedlam and In Requiem. The whole show was recorded and live broadcasted which you can find here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoKMV3h4tgw Plus I look miserable as sin for some unknown reason Last week we played the Lemon Factory in Swansea. Although the ceiling had collapsed earlier and there wasn’t any “real” beer on tap it was a great show and we signed some albums and Ep’s for one of the other band too!
I have also recently joined a soul function band called Red bug and played my first gig with them in Chepstow within a week. A great line-up and great musicians including a marvellous saxophone player. Plus the singer also owns The Practice Pad rehearsal rooms near to me – http://thepracticepad.co.uk/ Cracking!
Apart from all the gigging I have been teaching constantly throughout the summer too. a few new student’s have started in the last two weeks which has been great and I have a new bass player starting next week.
I have also been some session work, mainly jazz and it’s been hard work but great fun!
Composing has been slow to be quite honest. I haven’t particularly had the interest or time to knuckle down and complete tracks unfortunately.
Nyx will be changing name and a new drummer is needed but everything is on hold until September due to the building of a new studio for us in Machen then we will be well on our way to success!
That’s that! Oh and I’m ordering a new bass too! More on that to follow shortly with a review Have a great summer!
