I've had an amazing time being a musician and over the past 5 years or so i've shared many great highs and also lows. The music industry can be an incredibly rewarding place to work but it can also be very tough and we all do what we can to make it work.
For me, that meant joining a number of bands and collaborating on music that I absolutely gave 100% to, but music that ultimately was not fully my own. Whilst this afforded me the opportunity to see much of the world and gain lots of experience of recording, touring, and meet so many great people, there has always been something at the back of my head saying 'But imagine if it was my own music....'
With that in mind, I'm changing my focus in terms of where I want to be musically - and it very much involves me playing the music that I want to share with you. There are lots of really exciting projects in the pipeline and i'll let you know about them in due course - I plan to (finally) record my first solo album, there are a few really cool tours on the horizon - it's something that I really can't wait to get stuck in to and kick on!
Don't worry, it doesn't mean i'm not going to be playing with anyone else ever again - the musicians I collaborate with are unbelievable and I look forward to doing so in the near and not so near distant future, but for now, my priority is my own music so watch this space!
