Things at the studio have been very busy as I have been prepping all my students for there Trinity Music Exams and I am pleases to say that all my students passed with flying colours. It’s all ways a great feeling knowing that I have helped students on their journey with music and i wanted to congratulate them all on working so hard towards it. I have had several new students start with styles ranging from beginners to a student looking to get into country-style guitar playing so if you know of anyone interested in lessons do tell them to get in touch. I also offer Home Lessons which is easier for certain students who cannot travel or prefer the comfort of their own home. Lessons can be weekly or fortnightly and are either 30 mins or 60 mins depending on what areas want to be worked on.
It has been a great month that saw me kick things off on tour with Emily Capell supporting British band Texas. We played to some massive crowds in Dubai, Cape town and Joberg and the whole of South Africa was breath-taking. I want to say special thanks to all the guys who helped make it happen as well as the band consisting of Matt Cowley on drums and Steven Oates on bass. Here are some pics of the gigs including the Dubai tennis stadium, Kirstenbosch botanical gardens and Joberg
I have also been busy with THE RUDBE GOLDBERG MACHINE where we played this years Progfest with some amazing bands and a great reception. The album is being worked on so I will keep you updated as to when that comes out.
I have also been gigging with my band SOUL GRENADES where we played a headline set at London’s biggest funk and soul night THE SOUL TRAIN at the Bussey building in Peckham. The night was too much fun to remember as you can see from these pics
This summer I also played guitar on Mark Kingswood incredible album of contemporary swing music and here you can see his latest video for his first single Strong. Go and check him out he is awesome
Here is me putting the guitars down earlier in the year for this song
Planet 3 is another band I play in and we had our first gig at the Tunbridge Wells Forum last month. The gig was so much fun and we smashed it and are looking forward to going in the studio later this year to record the first EP.
So that’s kept me pretty busy this month. I hope you all have lovely Christmas and New Year and I look forward to more exiting projects and student’s in 2018.
