Postcard (Official Video) by Sugardrum
Festivals. Last year I didn't apply for any as I had become a Dad the year before. I ended up playing just the one - Tribal Earth down in Sussex, which a friend of mine helps organise and which the family came to.
A few years ago I wrote a song called motorway song. It was initially written about a car I used to have, a Fiat Panda. It only had four gears so going anywhere long distance was a noisy experience. You felt like you were travelling at 110mph when in fact you were just doing 50mph.
I'm not really one to enter competitions. I think the last time I won something was many years ago whilst working at a bookshop. I did a book display for some law books called Nutshells where we filled the window with loads of old monkey nut shells suspended in celophane. The display got entered into a competition and won first prize, for which I received an mp3 player.
I have some new live videos I’ll be adding to the site soon. One is of my song Postcard, the others are from some recent gigs. I don’t have any new gigs booked in the diary though, for reasons explained below.
Things have been a bit quiet on the music front in my life recently while I've been busy being a Dad, doing the day job and training to run the London Marathon. I am however, finding more time to work on some of the song ideas I've been writing in the odd moment over the past few months and am excited over the prospect of new songs on the horizon.
