So, we’ve played a few music festivals this year and had an absolute blast. My personal favourite was the fest at Firsdown; an event put on near Salisbury by people with real passion for live music. The audience reaction to our set was really awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed chatting to the crowds afterwards. As well as Firsdown we also recently played the VW festival in Kent - despite the rain teaming down we were, thankfully, in a tent...the audience bustled in and really got into it! We’ve played some local gigs too at some of our favourite venues; we do love to see our local following at these events :) What’s coming up…? Well we are scheduling another video shoot for our tune, Perfect, Like You. This will be shot by Josh Armstrong and I’ll get to do some acting - so excited! We’ve been nominated for an NMG Award by Cambridge 105! Check this out for more info….http://www.nmgawards.com/?p=136 We also have some more gigs lined up so it would be amazing to see some of you guys there - check out our events page for details. A huge thank you to everyone who has followed us/liked us and continues to share our journey with us. This wouldn’t be possible without you! Jo xxx
Our eagerly awaited album is due to be released over the coming weeks! We're just in the throes of working on the album artwork and as none of us are 'art'ists in that respect it's going to be random/interesting/weird! But anyway, hopefully you will all like it lots! It will include tracks from our previous EPs plus a few extras and we're very excited about its release! While I'm here I'm sending everyone who continues to support us and join our journey a massive thank you. It goes without saying that we are so, so grateful to you all. Hope to see you at a coming gig soon! Jo xx
This year has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride - and for all its ups and downs I confess I am loving every minute of it! A slightly difficult few months and then this Saturday we played a local gig and the crowd reaction was phenomenal! The atmosphere in the pub was amazing and we couldn't have had a better evening - so firstly a big thank you to everyone who came to the Flintknappers in Brandon and rocked out all night with us! I'd also like to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported us from the early days and continued to support us throughout our journey. It's a ride I don't want to get off and, as long as you guys are all part of it, long may it continue! Cheers all and see you at a future gig - they're rolling in so keep an eye on our events pages on Reverbnation and Facebook!! Jo x
