Everything is happening at the minute. I’ve just come out of a fairly hectic period of touring and recording, we played at Glastonbury, one of the tracks was used on a tv show and we made our first reigional TV appearance – make the effort to see that by the way. We are interviewed by puppets. The producer assured me I wouldn’t look foolish but I’m not sure how you can’t look foolish when you’re chatting over your musical influences with buckfast drinking, foam puppet with a thick Belfast accent. The stuff that is going on now, is stuff I remember willing to happen about three years ago. I feel like I’m living the dream but also very aware that I’m just at the beginning and I can se how much work there is to do. It’s exciting though! I thank you all for subscribing to this mailing list and getting involved early.
I’m performing with the band at a few festivals in Northern ireland over the next while and will be back touring hopefully in September. In the mean time, enjoy my first release and go get my demo EP, trajectories. It’s 3 of my earliest tracks, demoed in my mate’s house in my home town, Lisburn … and it’s free!
