Hello everyone! I hope your week has been good! Mine’s been lovely J
On Monday at college, 2 of my class mates and me wrote a song that was meant to be a mickey take of a Mumford & Sons song (don’t get me wrong, I like them!). We ended up really liking it so we’ve decided that we’re going to re-write some of the parts of the song and make it a bit more serious, purely because we just loved the melody :’) We also had a guest speaker come in. She works in the Sync music industry (basically creating music for film trailers & adverts). It was a side of the industry that I didn’t know much about and I found it very interesting.
I went to Joe Dolman’s EP launch on Tuesday. One of his support acts, Beth Jakob, was really good. She’s an acoustic singer-songwriter and one of her tracks, ‘Cat And Mouse’ was really good. It was a great turn out for Joe and he performed at the best I’ve ever seen him. At one point, he did a completely unplugged version of one of his songs, in the middle of the room with both of his support acts. No microphones, nothing. It truly was a very special moment to witness.
Wednesday I was doing work on my third and final song to record. It’s so close; I’m so nearly there! It won’t be long now before all 3 songs are ready to record!
I went to an open mic night Friday night at The Swan in Lewes. It’s a tiny pub and it was quite squished, but the crowd were so receptive and warm towards me and my music that it didn’t matter. I even had suggestions of what I could name the 2 songs I performed, as I don’t have names for them yet. Overall, a great success J
On Saturday and Sunday, I was in Crawley for my cousin’s 18th birthday party. It was such a great night on Saturday. It’s just so nice to let go every once in a while and not to worry about anything.
I’ve also been reading a book this week called ‘The Rise Of The Nashville Teen’ by Chloe Govan. It’s a biography about Taylor Swift’s rise to fame and her story in the spotlight. She was so determined from such a young age so reading it certainly makes you feel inspired.
I hope to have all 3 songs finished by the end of this week so watch this space… ;)
Love and smiles,
