I'm just taking a few moments to catch up with myself and realised that I haven't blogged for a wee while... So, time for a wee update!
Work on the album has stuttered a wee bit unfortunately since the turn of the year. All the recording has been done, but mix and master are still to be finished. I think there is maybe only a day or two of work left on the mix before it can be zipped off for mastering, but poor Stuart hasn't been well and has had to take a break for a bit. But, we should be back to work in a couple of weeks time and ready to make a break for the finish line... Watch this space!
I'm a bit like a kid at Christmas with these new songs... It's going to take a bit of time to do it right, this releasing an album business, but I'm just busting to share them with you! So, the other night I got the slap on, perched my MacBook on a makeshift tripod (i.e. a kitchen chair balanced on my bed!) and recorded a wee version of new song The Fall. It kinda looks like I'm in a concrete garage or something, and the lighting ain't great, but you get the idea!
In other news, I'm delighted to be travelling to Ardlui on Sunday to play for the participants in the Travis Trek - find out all about Travis Trek and Milo's Miles here. If you have a spare couple of quid, please donate to this wonderful cause. Scott Cunningham MBE and his handsome devil of a guide dog, Milo, have done some amazing work for charity and would welcome your support.
There will be more news on the album development and live shows for later in the year soon. I'll be sure to share what's happening as soon as I can.
Ta ta for now! I'll leave you with this, my favourite April Fool so far...
I hope you don't get pranked too badly - speak again soon.
Love, A x
