On Dec 1st I'm going to be releasing the next single, and my favourite track from the album, EXHALE.
As I'm sure a lot of you know Breaking Out is a journey through mental health hurdles, and any of your who suffer from anything in this vein know that it's always there in the background no matter how hard you work at it, and how much 'better' you become. Of course, all of the songs on the album are really personal to me but Exhale along with See Through, really sum up where I am in my life right now. Pushing back barriers and trying to become stronger. It also FUCKING ROCKS, so I couldn't NOT put it out in the wild for further enjoyment!
I've posted the track below so you can have a listen if you've not got the album yet - you can also already download it form Bandcamp :) ...Personally I think it's the best song I've written so far... we'll be playing this live on the January tour, too - so expect much energy!
Love and hugs
I've been asked a few times recently what my 'marketing plan' is at the moment, and what I'm planning moving forwards, so I thought I'd share that here with you guys - as you know I like to try to give you an insight behind the scenes....
Here's the secret:
I don't have one.
I'm sorry if you were looking for a magic answer - but my 'plan' is just a combination of a few things:
I can't actually emphasis the 'Being human and normal' bit enough. There are so many artists out there, doing the same thing - leaving other people to run their social media - and you know what - THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Where's the Unique Selling Point in that? Surely if you're interested in an artist and you can get online and literally chat to them, that makes it amazing, that makes a CONNECTION.
Sure, if you're a multi platinum selling massive band like Foo Fighters of something, you can probably scrub what I'm saying, but then you're unlikely to be reading my blog... But for us small fish in big ponds - make yourself unique, do you, thats the best tip I can give. You'll know whats right, follow your gut, don't be a dick and show off what makes you individual.
Hugs, love and sunshine,
I’m sorry I’ve not done a nice long helpful indie artists blog post in a while, I was actually reminded that I need to get on with that this week when I was doing another interview with my friends at the Break the Business podcast ... I am naughty. I can only blame touring and writing an album, for my lack of being helpful! BUT it will happen soon!
... ANYWAY... ON TO THE MAIN EVENT... THE ALBUM IS HERE!
There are, in fact, many ways in which you can enjoy the new smorgasbord of delicious music:
... and yes it will eventually be on iTunes, Spotify, Deezer an Amazon - but not yet... ;)
Hugs and sunshine,
