October has been a very busy month workwise, with several evening events and the organisation of a large-scale concert (audience of 300 – a very successful night) distracting me from my own music.
I haven’t been entirely inactive, however.
I’ve put together a little podcast. It isn’t as elaborate and silly as the first 2 were (When I’ve more time these will be far more complicated and silly) but it does contain two acoustic songs of mine that you won’t have heard before.
I’ve been playing around with the video app on my phone, and have put together a little slideshow of recent steampunk pictures from the video shoots we’ve done recently.
I’ve started preliminary planning for solo album number two – With two exceptions the songs are written and I just need to make a start on the recording. I’m really looking forward to that as I’ve learned a lot about recording and mixing over the last year.
The next big thing to turn up will be the video for Spinning the Compass. Joe has been constructing this-
– Which is needed for a couple of shots in the video. We’ve also shot a fight scene and all sorts of silliness. There’s some pics and little videos from the shoot over at my posterous site, and if I’m feeling generous I’ll email a little video preview to my mailing list later today (which you can join by entering your email address in the box at the top right of your screen).
So, all sorts of things coming soon. I haven’t vanished, honest!
