I’ve had an amazing weekend with the EastSide Arts Festival.
First of all on Friday I supported Kaz Hawkins at the Park Avenue Hotel. I played in front of an audience of more than 150 people and they were brilliant. So many people came to see me afterwards and say hello, which is the best bit about doing gigs like that.
Kaz was fantastic. She was so welcoming and it was great being able to watch her performance and learn from her. Her story is incredible and I’d urge anyone who hasn’t seen her before to make it top of their to-do list!
During that gig I played a brand new song, Calla, which just might be a late contender to feature on my EP which I’ll be recording next week.
I played it again today at a gig in the EastSide Arts Visitor Centre – the guys there broadcast it live on their Facebook page. It was fun to play some covers as well as some of my own songs and there was plenty of coffee.
Next up for me is recording my new EP with Michael Mormecha at Milbank Studios. I’ll be doing some video diaries of my time in the studio so check back for those next week 🙂
