A Christmas Message.
Well hello there! Just thought I'd keep y'all informed on what's going on with me at the moment. Having finished the long Bay City Rollers Autumn Tour at the end of November, I've spent the last few weeks relaxing a little, teaching, practicing, recording and risking my life decorating particularly tall Christmas Trees!
It's been a long tour, so I'm happy to be home for a little while and to have some time to work on other things, in particular some brand new material with a brand new band called Empires Decline. Myself and old friends, Danny Rowe & Ed Powell have been playing around with some ideas via email for the past year or so and it looks like we've finally found enough time between us to finish some of these tracks, along with a fantastic vocalist called Kate McQuaide. It's been a wonderful journey so far and I'm really pleased with the sounds that we're making. I'll see if I can post a little teaser soon.
I'm off to Ireland with The Rollers at the end of the week for three final dates for the year, then I've just a couple of private functions to do before a nice, relaxing Christmas. Gigging in Guernsey for New Year's Eve, then back to making more music when I return in the New Year.
It's been a truly fantastic 2017 and certainly my busiest year yet. I've toured all over the UK once again, Japan, Germany, Ireland and Australia. I feel very fortunate to have such a rewarding job, that brings me such unique experiences. Let's see what 2018 has in store.
Thanks for reading.
Have a wonderful Christmas.
