As some of you may know The Sound Of Strangers EP is out now whoo hoooo, feels like I've achieved something, it's just the beginning but it's a nice buzz to finally have some music out for you guys to own, THANKYOU for all the twitter/facebook comments, blog posts and texts of positivity, people seem to be feeling it so a wee small pat on me back haha
This first single should hopefully be out in August, currently finishing off the album and with a bit of luck will be out in September, I-can't-wait-for-guys-to-hear-it, hope you like it *gulp* lol
Things have really been mad as of late especially on the net front, I was a Guardian Band of the Day last week (craaazy), write up's elsewhere on the www. @ prefix mag, cmj, urb, soulculture, alt sounds, laidback, USAtoday (!) amongst loads of others from around the globalsphere..THANKUUUUUU so much writers and bloggers, big yourselfs up!
Once I get the net up and running in my new flat, I'll get back on the blogging properly promise!!!!!!, currently searching for jobs whilst having a Lord of The Ring film marathon, a interesting combo I must say...
Until next time, stay safe and keep in touch, up the mountain we climb!!!!

Its been a little while since we last conversed, a thousand apologies things have been a bit mad of late, i'll explain:
I'm now a artist on Brownswood Recordings, which is just so amazing..just for a label to believe enough in me to want to put out my ramblings is such a boost, i wont give the "i've toiled for so long" speech : ) just be rest assured i wont waste the opportunity maaaaaate, onwards and upwards!
I will be releasing a free digital E.P called The Sound of Strangers on June 1st, maaan even typing that seems a bit mad lol but its true, you guys can have some music to keep which you can play whilst cooking, driving, running or whatever else you may do on a daily, why don't you come down to the launch party on June 2nd @ The Lock Tavern, London? Will-be-fun fun fun : )..flyer with details beloooow
And there's more
May is going to be a little bit of a mad one gig wise, full details will be on the myspace (go go goooo!!!) but to summarise:
May 4th - Shamboogle, Amersham Arms, London - Very very very special guest headliner oooh i wish i could tell you!!!!
May 8th - Adventures of The Beetroot Field, The Rest is Noise, London.
May 11th - Supporting Nneka, AB Brussels, Belgium - So blessed to get this, excited maaaate plus i love Belgium chocs, so i'll be broke upon my return lol
May 14th - The Great Escape Festival, Brighton - This got confirmed yesterday, hearing such good things about TGEF, can't bloody wait!!!!
Hmmm one more?
Well it seem's i'm going to have a interview on Giles Peterson's Worldwide BBC Radio 1 Show next week Tuesday night hopefully, such a honour if it happens, been a dream i must say, please tune in if your up or listen again on the iplayer, big tiiiings : )
I really want to thank everyone who's shown support, recommended me, wrote about me or simply listened to my stuff so far, really those mean so much, things are a tad stressed for me away from music at the mo (i won't bore you with the details) and to read a nice comment or to see a nodding head at a gig just helps to keep the train moooooving : )
stay tuned and speak sooooooon

1. Played for the first time to mainly people who didn't have a oodle who i was (well not many people do but you know what i mean!) and i guess may not be into my music naturally/normally..a crash course in the art of winning over a crowd had begun.
2. Laptop stopped working one or maybe two track's into the set..brain was in flight mode, i just wanted to run off stage lol..luckily (after minutes of fluffing and mumbling) i found all the tracks backed up on my Itunes..gosh.
3. Realised i really need to get more organised, need to thoroughly test everything, too many tangled up and frayed wires is messing up sound checks and in turn in this case performances..i want to do this professionally so i must act as such..i'm a artist with technical responsibilities amongst others, i must not forget!
Other then that the night was fun and a eye opener..in one review i've been called "ever-so slightly eccentric" so not all bad LOL, Liam Bailey (the other support act) was outstanding and Rox? Truly truly amazing, she looks and sounds like a star, destined for greatness i hope and pray..learned so much from her performance and i want to keep on learning in everything i do, were on the road!

Second Video: Rox - My Baby Left Me, out on the 15th March. Supporting her on the 18th March (check earlier post on this if you like : )
Blessed to know them, lovely people, great artists.
GET BOTH SINGLES WHEN THERE OUT! SUPPORT SUPPORT SUPPORT!!
Hell no, we've come too far down the musical road to turn back and do what?..more customer service nonsense? a life of "what if's", "i should have's" & "if only's"?
It's hard sometimes when i can't go to mate's birthdays, gathering's, christening's because i ain't got the cash for travel or I've spent the little cash i have after bills on musical equipment because I'm a son of sound lol
I want to buy Mrs. GhostP nice things, take her out more.. i wanna help my mum and my siblings out and my head say's to me "get a 9-5, wear that suit, make that cash, be satisfied"
heart..oh my heart..which has always held sway since i was like 12 say's "music is what makes you happy, this is the path chosen for you, it's a longer one but stay the course maaate"...
I can't go back
I can't go back
I can't go back
I've got a good team around me now thankfully, I've stitched up the sails and getting sea worthy, wish me luck!
Glad i got that off me chest : )
I think I'm going to put a mixtape series of sorts together..it's going to be called "the ghost tapes" or something like that, just stuff I'm feeling, tracks passed my way and maybe new demos...got some ideas for it, so watch this space and get ready to download for freeeee!
Interesting things are happening, news as it happens, stay close people.

I feel i need to document this time so i can look back when hopefully the better day's come, smile and mouth the word's "i made it through" and i must, life's waaaaay to short to drown in the sea of OH NO! Going to keep productive, positive and forward moving, if you see me slacking, please give me a cyber kick up the butt : ) , may make this into a video diary if i feel brave enough, we'll see lol.
