ghost tape

Dingwalls..Rox support gig

Hmmm, twas a interesting and important one for a number of reasons:
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!

My musical uncle...

Such a character and inspiration, a must watch. More lecture's from this year's RBMA's here: http://www.redbullmusicacademy.com/london/lecture-videos


Yesterday was a weird one, having no job is a real brain strain sometimes..i feel I've kept it together pretty well, i dunno..just fell off the wagon a little yesterday, feeling sorry myself..thought what's the point of pursuing dreams which maybe just that..dreams?
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.

For the kid in me

Got passed this by a mate, hold tight Dremond. Creatvity ain't dead..so inspirational. 2 million plus views in two days and counting! Check the first video they made for this track on youtube land.

So maybe she's a radio detector?

This...song...will...not..leave..my..brain..alone...since..i've..started listening to it about 20 minutes ago. If this isn't on a advert in the next couple of month's i'll eat my pork pie hat.

Bonobo ft Andreya Triana

Been getting into Bonobo's music recently, loving Fink's stuff too, Andreya Triana's/Flying Lotuses - Tea Leaf dancer's is a play to the grand kids classic maaaaaate.

This track is like downbeat moody soul, so haunting, pulling you this way and that, too brill.

Dangermouse + J Mercer = Broken bells

Intriguing song, can't wait to hear more!

First support slot

Day 2: Life after redundacy (LAR)

I officially was laid off work last Friday, i guess everything happens for a reason but it's hard to see the wood for the tree's sometimes, i feel o-k/good. Thing's are going really well on the music front which is a blessing..just bill's are bills and they must be paid! haha.

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.
