Today is here, drum roll please…I’d like to officially declare that as of 8.45pm this evening ‘Time Ashore’ will officially be ‘released’ HURRAY!!!!
I’ll be supporting the Spooky Mens Chorale for their evening Ham concert at Sidmouth Folk week to a sold out 1,200 capacity marquee…eeeeeek!!! (the band, Simon, Philippe & Oli will be joining me)
I’m not nervous at all…
If you already have the album, Thank You from the bottom of my toes, If you haven’t got the album, here is a free download from Bandcamp for your ears. If you find the noise pleasantly pleasing please head over to my website where you’ll find the ENTIRE ALBUM TO BUY 😀 😀 😀
I’m just a tad super excited!!!
If you’ve supported the album through Kickstarter or pre-orders, (THANK YOU!) your CDs should all have arrived by now. I hope you’ve been enjoying the album, if not, it makes a great frisbee 😉
(Picture below from my first gig supporting the Spooky Men at their gig in Oxford, according to rumour I’m the only folk singer ever to sing solo in the Sheldonian – What an honour! )
So far the tour has been going amazingly, Simon Dumpleton and I had an absolute blast on tour for 7days in July, we met some wonderful people, it was just a joy to have company on the road too. Thank you to all of those who put us up, came to the gigs and sang with us.
As well as the album coming out today, another ridiculously surreal experience was waking up VERY early last Sunday morning to pick up the Observer from the paper shop & find a lovely review. James Soars has been doing the publicity, I couldn’t be more grateful for all of his support and hard work in littering the radios with my noise.
Facebook events, you’ll see the list of gigs there too, I’m thoroughly enjoying The Spooky Men’s Chorale tour so far. Last night we had a feast for 25 spooks and partners, my early night before tonights gig was blown out of the window by an evening of delicious food, wine, singing & dancing until the early hours of this morning.
