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.
