Hello! As you can tell this is the beginning of my Blog, I'm pretty much just going to use this to document my life as a musician and my work in the music industry. I thought it would be nice to write something to keep track of everything I'm doing so I can reflect upon it later when things are more settled.
I've recently started managing my band 'Colourful Thief', which I'm really enjoying so far, it's a little more intense than the live music promotion work I've been doing over the summer but far more rewarding in many ways. I can already see the band's image developing from a small acoustic songwriting project that was once very low key and personal to Luke (our singer) into something far larger with a lot of musical potential.
We're going in to the studio sometime over the next few weeks throughout November to begin recording our debut E.P, it's going to be quite easy for us to really get our teeth in to the whole recording process I think, everyone is really excited about spending more time working on the songs we already have as well as the ones we finished writing this week!
Now I'm having to think about things like E.P artwork, what tracks we want to put on the record, the kind instrumentation we want on each of the tracks, single releases, photoshoots, merchandise, distribution of the final product, etc. It's a little overwhelming, consuming the majority of my thoughts, but I don't mind. I love being busy.
Today we were confirmed to support a band from Scotland called "We Are The Physics" in December, it's going to be a really good one! Very much looking forward to playing on the same bill as them!
The Major Project part of Uni is really keeping my attention at the moment, which is really exciting, I can't wait to get things off the ground properly! But more about that later, I don't want to give too much away before we publicly announce what we're doing.
More to be announced within the week hopefully, I'll try to keep this as up to date as possible.
