I have some exciting news for you all... I filmed my very first music video at the weekend, and it's now available on YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAa_1... to watch the video and leave a comment!
The video was masterminded, filmed, directed, and edited by the fantastic Pete Middleton, who's a film producer from Birstall near Leeds. We spent all of afternoon on the Saddleworth Moor, made famous by the grim murdering antics of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley - filming for the vid. We were really luck since it was a bloody gorgeous day, and we weren't rained off once!
I've thanked him personally a number of times, but I really can't thank him enough... I want to say thanks again to Pete for taking the time to make the video with me. I was involved for a whole afternoon, but he's been working on it pretty much solidly for 2 days! And I'm sure you'll agree, the results are astounding! Mr Middleton, I salute you!

I must try and get back into the habit of writing these regularly again... I'm just incredibly lazy when it comes to writing blogs! I have actually been quite proactive in other areas though, and good progress is being made on my new CD 'Lines and Dots' which now has four finished tracks!
The latest recording I've done is of a brand new song 'Fairytales' which I will hopefully be able to record a video of me playing tomorrow sometime. It's more or less about teenage relationships (as usual) and what can constitute a fairytale romance. There are various references to children's literature including what I consider a pretty original take on Hansel & Gretel involving chapstick and Tic Tacs! haha! The song also tries to present a kind of debate between older and younger generations as to whether us kids behave appropriately these days; basically surmising that nothing has really changed and that our parents (and grandparents) used to do all the same things we do when it comes to dropping underwear and fumbling around in woodland for easy thrills! (perish the thought!)
On the subject of kooky new songs... If you haven't already had a look at my mate Rob Davie's music page since he added his shiny studio recordings, I suggest you dash over there now! 'Burnt Toast' is definitely becoming a favourite of mine I must admit... the boy has some serious talent for tunesmithery! Click the following link to check out his page.

It only takes a minute to register and there are lots of cool people on there having raging conversations about all manner of things and you could be missing out bigtime! Remember... when we reach 200 members there will be a prize draw in which someone will win the famous scarf that I got slated by NME for wearing!!
That's all for now I suppose... keep your peepers peeled for a YouTube video of me playing that new song 'Fairytales'... and please stick around and keep the feedback and support coming; it really does mean the world to me that you like the songs

I'm back... sort of.
I've still got exams so I'm pretty busy with revision and shit for about 3 more weeks... but I just felt inspired whilst looking up at the night sky puffing on a cigarette. I came back inside and wrote a song in about 5 minutes which I think it quite cute. I've named it 'something about stars' and I'll make a video of me playing it in a sec! It's only short and nothing amazing... just a simple little tune to ease me back into this music-making thing gently!
I hope you like... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SJZv...
