So today, I am off to Norfolk for a week, and I’m ridiculously excited! I’m looking forward to maybe writing some new songs, taking some photos and of course going to my brothers wedding!
Since all this, I thought it would be a brilliant idea to use April as a month to take a breather, as I’ve been a bit overloaded with things to sort out for the EP, and can take a break before gearing up for festival season starting off in May. I’ve been working very hard behind the scenes on a tonne of video content for the EP, the first of which comes out on Friday!
This will be the music video for “The Getaway”, which the contains moments of reflections, mixed with eerie flashbacks to other moments in time. This is the first of three videos, all filmed at completely different moments to really capture the essence of these separate stories, that 20 is made up of. Those videos will follow very shortly after ‘The Getaway’ so be sure to keep an eye out! I’ve also got a live session coming very soon for my song ‘Three’ so be sure to look out for that also!
The best way to find out what I’m up to is to read this blog, it’s written every week, and is basically just my thought process each week that comes. It’s a good way for me to reflect on all that I’m doing, as well as give you first hand insight into my music.
I spend an enormous amount of time planning these sorts of things, the blog, the videos, as I want to try to create a very transparent, and interesting listening experience. I honestly just love creating things whether it be music, videos, blogs, I just love having these mediums to get this creative side out. I really hope it’s something you’ve been enjoying, as I take a lot of pride in all the work that’s been put in to Lost Like Alice from day one.
I’d also like to take the time to talk about some of the upcoming gigs I have coming up. I’ll be heading all the over place this summer, going to Cardiff, Lancashire, Gloucester, and of course some more local shows. It’s so important as an artist to gig, and has always been my favourite part, but it’s just as important for you the audience, to show up for artists you enjoy. Go down to your local venue, and support live music. Believe it or not, these types of places close down all the time. Sound control in Manchester where I saw Highly Suspect is now gone. There are so many incredible events happening so be sure to have a look out and try and show your face! Check out my shows calendar and see if there’s anything you fancy, but also if there’s any local bands you really like hearing, let them know by turning up and I promise you’ll make their night!
Right that’s enough preaching for one week. So as you’re reading this I’ll probably be in a car somewhere, probably a bit bored, on my way for a week I’ve looked forward to for a long time now! I’ll try and get as much footage down there as I can to bring home, and get ready to really tie off this EP, and get on with what’s coming next! Be sure to check out the video for ‘The Getaway’ this Friday!
