Welcome, one and all, to 216! I hope you had a brilliant Christmas and fun NYE, I know I did, but this is the last year I'll be gigging as the fireworks go off... Looking forward to spending many future NYE nights in a different European city with Em!
I am so excited for this year! Lots of things to work on, lots of work about to pay off and lots of good stuff happening in between.
I'm now very pleased to report that the new Bose P.A system is working a treat and getting a lot of good comments at gigs. And thanks to a lot of help from Matt at Nevada Music in Portsmouth I have a pedal board full of gadgets that have solved many issues and limitations I had before. In short, my live set has never sounded better! Now I just need to get some new threads so I look as sharp as I sound.
Having been introduced to Joe Wicks' (The Body Coach) by a friend, Em and I bought his Lean In 15 book so lets see what a more focused meal plan does in addition to HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training for you kids not down with the lingo) and / or weight training sessions on weekdays. Bosh. Midget Trees. Guiltyyyy!
Plans are being formed for reworked versions of my singles Fracas and Bodies of Water, complete with professional music videos for a feel good summer. It'll be like I'm a real musician or something...
I've got a feelin'... This year's for me and you....
