New Social Media!

Woop woop! Have spent a day and a half with my good buddy Will Lingard setting up my social media networks. Soundcloud, twitter, youtube... V new and exciting and slightly disconcerting for me - but good to embrace the brave new world!

Now just the small matter of learning how to use them effectively...

Post Op

Last week I was in hospital - just an operation on my right hand to release the carpal tunnel in my wrist. I have been in bandages since which has been a humbling experience. Trying to keep it elevated when one sleeps is an interesting dilemma. Stitches come out on the 25th Feb, and the Left Hand gets done in in March. Woop

It's January 2013 and yes - that means I have not posted a blog throughout the entire year 2012!

Oops. He he.  Need to get back into the habit. Highlights of 2012? I did some more TV and film work (for my excellent and extremely talented friend Richard Blair Oliphant).

I recorded significant amounts of music for my new demo for my musical Billy Bow written with Ian Friel.

I started a sabbatical from University (which I am still on) and I have been composing like a being possessed - about to start work on a new recording project. Will try and blog more soon. Promise.

Busy busy. Again.

I seem to have written that as a blog title before now. Am reaching white heat hectic-ness (which I love - who doesn't really) of juggling uni and film/TV and musical theatre careers simultaneously. Plate spinning metaphors spring to mind. Suffice to say am busy and will remain so for the foreseeable so the blogs may become scant-er. But great to be working for a fab music department and with a fab fellow composer Richard Blair Oliphant.

Wedding in cornwall

Just got back after driving just under 5oo miles in two days. I went down yesterday morning to the breathtakingly beautiful Prussia Bay in Cornwall, close to Penzance to see my friend Jimmy Hay marry Sara. It was a beautiful wedding - very emotional - and good to see a number of old friends, including Jimbo Gillingham who gave a riotously funny Best Mans speech. On the way back today it has become clear that my car is in serious trouble - sounding very ill. Time to take it for a service methinks.
