Journal: Week 30

After the high anxiety of last week, this week has been a sweet reward.

“I love it when a plan comes together”

The A-Team Hannibal - I love it when a plan comes together!

If you don’t know who this is, or why it’s here…it shows my age!! (hint: look up “The A-Team”)

Having stressed so much about releasing my “For the Weekend” Collector’s Edition as the debut product in my new shop, this week has been spent mostly ironing out little hiccups.

(i.e. the shop page not loading…yeah, that was quite a deal-breaking hiccup! Thankfully, everything seems to be working smoothly now 🙂 )

Wonderful comments

What’s been especially awesome has been receiving wonderful feedback:

“Love the new song and video. Your talent continues to expand. Is “For the Weekend” from…an upcoming album? I have to own it” – Joel D, NY, USA

“I really like your new song! It’s very cool…It you come to Italy …I will come to see you live! ;)” – Davide R, Venice, Italy

“I have just been listening to ‘for the weekend’, I have to say, I love the lyrics, and I think it shows how much time and effort you have put into this because it’s truly awesome!!! I love it, so much so that its now in my ‘fave tunes’ playlist and I’ve even shared it with family and friends who will appreciate your very obvious talent.” – Naomi H, London, UK

As you can imagine, to read such amazingly positive comments has been such a huge boost to me, and really makes me feel that I might actually be able to do this as a real career!

So a big “Cheers!” to those who’ve bought it, and a large “Please consider buying it!” to those who’ve yet to 😉

Welcome New Members

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know what long and drawn-out back-end battles I had with my website in order to build and launch my Member’s Club.

Well, I’m very happy to say that all is running smoothly and that I’m absolutely thrilled to welcome two new Members this week; Kevin G from Texas, and Umay A, from right here in London.

I’m passionate about building my Member’s Club as the exclusive place to release my new songs, often months before they are released publicly (if they are ever released publicly!).

So a massive “Thank you.” to Kevin and Umay (and my other wonderful Members!); it is truly the biggest support I could ask for and I’m dedicated to bringing my Member’s Club the best songs I can.


“Your Eyes Don’t Lie”

Which brings me rather conveniently to my other great success this week; finishing my August Member’s Club song, “Your Eyes Don’t Lie“, ready for download tomorrow!

I feel it’s a slightly more “mature” song, as far as my songwriting craft goes, and was written from a starting point of a simple piano chord progression, something I’ve not really explored before.

I’m really happy with how it’s turned out and very much hope that you’ll like it too 🙂

N.B. To download “Your Eyes Don’t Lie” tomorrow (along with over 30 other songs right now) and support me in the most amazing way, please consider joining my Member’s Club today.

August, and everything after

So as the month of July comes to a close I’m looking ahead to new music, new projects and possibly new collaborations in August and onwards.

I’ve not decided what my September Member’s Club song will be, but I’m leaning towards a track tentatively called “Waiting for the Offer“, and if I settle on that, expect a slamming Lenny Kravitz-esque funk-rock beast up in your ears very soon!

rock on

As always, I’d love to hear your feedback on all this, so please do leave a comment below.

Thanks for reading, thanks for sticking with me and, especially to my new Members and buyers of my music; thanks for changing my life by helping me get that little bit closer to my dream.

Rock on!
