One of the new remixes of my song Forgotten has been played a couple of times in the past week on BBC 6music. First on Tom Robinson's mixtape show and then on his Saturday night show last weekend.
I've been busy working on a selection of remixes of my song, Forgotten. There's going to be a new EP of them coming out towards the end of July. In the meantime here's a preview of one of the remixes. It's called Forgotten (Sunshine Juno mix) and is named in honour of my very old Juno Synth which was used for the bass and pad sounds on this before it got poorly and stopped making bass and pad sounds quite so well.
You can now download my most recent EP - "3 Penny Postcard" along with all my other recordings for free from the Sugardrum shop at http://shop.sugardrum.com
The Wupadupa Eco show earlier in March was a lovely intimate gig. Amrit Sond played a blinding headline set and I got to play a slightly long set than usual due to the third act having to cancel because they were poorly.
Merry Christmas! For the past few years I've recorded a cover version of a Christmas Song to give away to family, friends and Sugardrum fans as a thank you for their support. This year I'm proud to present my cover of the classic Wham song Last Christmas.
Wow, fantastic news. Tom Robinson played my song Bubble Clouds on his mixtape show earlier this week. You can listen to the recording again for a short while at the following link...
I've done a few gigs since playing Edinburgh and Glastonbury Festivals, but not had the time to upload any of the videos or photos taken at them. Now my gigs for this year are all done I've got the time to catch up on sorting out gig photos, videos, writing songs and blog posts.
The music blog Music Gleaner recently reviewed my EP 3 Penny Postcard on their website. Here's an extract:
New York web magazine Stocking Blue recently featured the video for Choccy Rolls as their Friday afternoon cheerful tune. Huge thanks to them for that. Check it out on the link below...
I'm catching a train up to Edinburgh tomorrow. Looking forward to playing lots of gigs as part of the festival whilst I'm there...
Thanks to all those who came to watch us play at Glastonbury Festival. We ended up playing two gigs, one in the early hours of Thursday on the Mandala Stage and the other on Thursday evening on the Toad Hall stage, both in the Greenfields. After the Toad Hall gig I did a short interview for Kingston Green Radio.
Big thanks to Squishymachine for making such a beautifully, poignant video for my song about dementia called Choccy Rolls.
I helped organised another Wupadupa Eco show on 6th May and did a short set at the beginning of it. It was another night of great music with Amrit Sond playing a stunning headline set and support from myself, Storme Watson and Will O’Donoghue. Here's a couple of photos from the night. Big thanks to everyone who came along or listened at home on the radio and for Georgina and Clive for the photos.
Exposed vocals recently interviewed me, asking various questions ranging from how I thought of the name Sugardrum, my songwriting inspiration, any future plans and projects and what embarrassing songs I have on my mp3 player...
