Wild West Hero

Spending the past week in the studio making so much different music while enduring the most intense heat ever was a trying time! Musical results were great though!
Between writing and recording I’ve finishing up writing out all the lyrics for the postcard sets that coke with my EP which is out this Friday! Order a limited edition signed CD here 

I was so lucky to see a songwriting hero for the second time in a year, Jeff Lynne from the band ELO –  well he kind of was ELO having written and produced all the songs. Yesterday I saw him at Wembley stadium, so inspiring! I recommend watching the BBC documentary “Mr Blue Sky” and you will fall in love with him and his music.  Next up is a few more days recording in the studio, rehearsal with my live band for 2000 trees festival and a trip to Berlin for some writing and to see my friends in Paramore and then… more music more releases!

Listen to everything thats currently out here over on my Spotify page and are sure to follow it also follow my Battelle FM to hear the music I love right now, updated weekly

A little about the EP…. Written in Copenhagen at the start of 2017 Life Is Company Me Is A Crowd is a collection of four songs which demanded a rekindling of my relationship with the guitar as my primary weapon. It was always my intention to start the year writing and recording the follow up to my prog pop epic debut solo record Exit Brain Left but as is always the way with my writing these songs just happened while wandering around in what felt like a snow globe during a biblical snow storm on Paper Island in Copenhagen. Being full independent gives me the luxury of ripping up my own schedule and dropping out something riffological while I continue the creation of my second full length.

As with Exit Brain Left everything you hear on the EP is written and performed by me and this time I’ve produced myself fully and had it mixed by Exit Brain Left Co-producer Dan Weller.

So to recap! Life Is Company Me Is A Crowd – released 30th June

Berlin Wheel streaming now and available as a free download when you pre order the EP

 

The music I put my name on.

I’ve been back and forth all over the place making music these past few weeks. Right now I’ve a bunch of different projects to keep my attention but as always my true love is the music that I hear in my head all day, the music that I put my name on.
Soooooo some new solo music will be with you in May 🙂  Next week I’ll be working with my friend Dan Weller on a project we have started together which I’m really excited about. I’ve also a lot of music floating about, hidden in plain site.
Be sure to check out my Battelle Fm playlist, right now I’m loving loads of music and especially “Hard Times” by my friends in Paramore, can’t wait for that record AND The new Mew record!
