Hello and welcome, finally after a long time of waiting my website is HERE!!!!!!!! and with this comes my first ever blog. This will be filled with some lovely updates of what I’m doing musically, stuff I learn throughout this amazing music journey and also general antics I get up to, so please expect some horrid stories of me accidentally setting things on fire and acting like a child (Professional by musician standards)
UPDATES, so as said above, NEW SITE. have also left my job working for the Antiques Trade Gazette to give myself more time to work on music projects as unfortunately I was unable to really practice with the business of recordings and also South Eastern being a fantastic train service and consistently making my life hell. I am no going to be woking back for The London Borough Of Bexley helping children with special educational needs (More my background than the sales job as it will be genuinely helping people).
Music updates: We have had some great news as WAKE UP LEO has been confirmed for the Livestock Music Festival based in Longdon. This is the first festival I have played since Playing Portugal with my old prig metal band MIND. We are hoping to announce some other big updates and gigs soon with both WAKE UP LEO and THE SALVADOR DARLINGS. This is going to be a very exciting year for us and for me as musically, LOTS is taking up for myself and for my bands.
Song Of The Month
This Months song of the Month has to go to FOSTER THE PEOPLE: HELENA BEATS.
The reason behind this is that I am looking at buying a new mac soon and was checking out logic x on the I macs. When this loads up it happens to also be the default track that logic loads. Fair to say I had a moment, looked at the person having a quite chat next to me, and thought, sod them, I LOVE THIS SONG. Turned the mac up pretty loud played the song, and got a great dirty look. Do I care, this song is amazing, the synths are a particular highlight, and I just feel the song really is a perfect summer tune for me. It reminds me of seeing them 3 times at Reading festival with this song probably being my fav. As you may have guessed, i am a massive synth fan and those distorted lead sounds are stunning :).
This months fun fact I have learnt, extremely painfully, is that Manchester United (Yes i’m a fan, it could be worse though, I COULD SUPPORT CHELSEA!!!!!), are legitimately awful. I thought this new Mr Louis Van Gaal was fantastic at first. I love his approach and how he talks in press conferences, but when it comes to playing the game, I turned the TV on half way through when we played that Midgetland team, and after about 20 mins, I just walked off. I would have rather have been re writing my dissertation again than watch what is quite frankly BORING FOOTBALL. So yes fun fact MAN UTD SUCK
Erims Blonde Moments
This months blonde moment, was deffo when I tried to make French Toast the How To Basic way. Safe to say, it didn’t work.
