It’s a new year, it’s certainly the time most of us pull up our socks, vow to lose weight, be more considerate, spend less time on Facebook etc…
Well, I think my Facebook/real life balance is pretty good, I think being considerate is a year-round thing, and I’d certainly like to lose a little weight, but I think the enormous amount of work ahead of me is going to take care of that slightly-tighter-than-it-used-to-be wasitband.
I do have resolutions though, Stress is a big problem for me, and I have noticed a patch of grey hair either side of my head start to grow. So dealing with that is top of the list. A lot happened to me last year. Things that changed my perspective a little. I’ve perhaps realised that if I can get through that, stressing about the little things is perhaps something I can deal with. Those grey hairs already growing can’t be reversed though.
With the fog clearing a little, with my mind finally starting to click and whir into action, what am I looking forward to doing in 2016? Well, our recent partnership with Intrepid Artists International is already a fruitful one, with tours planned all over the US (and plans for beyond!) already in the books, and more arriving each time I turn my email machine on. I’m excited to get back on the road, with the best band I’ve had, and play to as many of you as I can. NOTHING beats being on tour. It’s all i’ve ever wanted out of music, the chance to play it every night. We have a bunch of new music slated for release this year, some REALLY bluesy stuff, and some music influenced by my Island Bound film project. I love all sorts of music, so it’s fun to return to my roots, and by that I mean both my initial musical and homeland ones!
So, take a peek at our tour dates, come out and say Hi, let us know what you think of the new material. In return, I will work my socks off in 2016, try and get to as many places as we can, play as best I can, and hopefully by the end of this year I will be a better musician, a wiser person, and a happier one. It’s certainly a good start I think.
