When a family holiday becomes a dream come true. Wow what a summer of music. It has almost been a theme park of events for me. I never thought it would be this good. I have to thank the amazing Open Mic venues that we discovered for their warm reception. Larry's at Venice Beach, Crave Cafe in Studio City & The Federal, North Hollywood Jam session. Yes folks I've played in LA! I was even scouted by casting agency to do an Apple shoot but alas had to decline.
San Diego home Taylor guitars, I was very lucky and got to peek round the factory to see how these amazing guitars are made. Thank you to Molly & Angel for the best advice & service oh & my amazing new guitar my 410CE with a special mention to Sam Ash Music & Sean for the live gig time in store. It really helps playing live with guitars your considering. It has been great spending many hours on the beach practicing guitar and writing songs. We have been shooting some footage for my next videos and also some shots for social media and merchandise in the near future.
I'm very lucky to have been over a thousand miles seen from Malibu to San Deigo & even the hills of Mexico! We have the best beach so plenty of surfing & body boarding even managed to top a rope climb or two on Muscle beach! Thank you to everyone who we met along the way, we met a lot of people! We still have a couple of days before we fly home and hope to make the most of it...
@larrys_venice great open-mic night met some very talented people & a couple from Bristol!
½ an hour before I went on my E string snapped! This chap called Mike Telega just gave a spare one to me. My heart was pounding as I was in a new country, new crowd with differing music tastes. They were very welcoming and the applause was brilliant, I also streamed live over Facebook. Loving California enjoying the weather and how chilled out it is.
Just back from the studio... But before spent last week working wth Orchard Recording Studios in Barton St. David on my next 2 singles and EP tracks.
Dan is on a placement from Falmouth and has really helped developed the sound alongside Charlotte and myself. It's been an amazing journey and so many people to thank. I'm off to the USA soon and will hopefully film my video for the next single out in November.
Ollie & Emily gave me the chance to play in their acoustic tent last year, where it all took off from and was asked back this year, I played to a good crowd and was well recieved. Met up with a Frome FM DJ whom I'd met on Twitter and hope to be playing a live studio set for her in September. Getting ready for my LA trip now, exciting times I hope to play some open mics if at all possible and may be a bit of busking.
Young chap finding his feet, likes the finer things but on a lemonade budget, for now!
