Last week was the debut gig of my new band, playing a set full of my own songs - first time ever for that so I am very excited! The gig was at Bar Loco in Newcastle, organized by Luke Bevan of NE Live. Also playing were Laundry Basket, Joe Moody, Cortney Dixon, Georgina Sanderson, and Aztec Bangles, plus some crazy dancing from the crowd as the night went on, so all in all a great gig!
Photos were taken by the wonderful Jonathan Parker of Spurious Nonsense Art Photography - to check out the rest of the photos on Facebook, click here.
In the new band, from left to right on the photo:

We will be playing again at Bar Loco's Loco Lounge Extravaganza 7 on Friday July 20th...Also playing are "The Hollies" (probably not the first band that springs to mind - this will be a special performance joining the extremely talented brothers Tom and Jethro Hollingworth), and "Static Soul" who are fantastic! Look them up NOW!
Album UpdateIn other news, just about finished recording the album, which features all the musicians pictured above; now it's time for Liam to work his magic mixing the tracks, and hopefully we can unleash them all on the world very soon!
