Old notebooks, new reviews and learning new things…

This is my first update for a while, so apologies for the quiet period! As you may well know from my last post, I had a horrible few weeks with a virus that apparently enjoyed living inside my body so much, it decided to have an extended visit! This meant me missing my Concert Window gig but also I had to bow out of an appearance at Worcester Music Festival. I was really dissapointed but, I know when to call it quits and admit defeat. 

I’m only just getting my voice back so I’ve started writing again and this morning I wrote half a song. A good start and hopefully I’ll finish it at some point. Either that or it will go in the pile of half written songs I have (ha!)

This morning I found 2 old note books. I’ve always kept a journal of some kind but went a couple of years without. Those years were probably the hardest because I had no outlet. In January, I started a new one and everything felt a little better.  I cringed as I read through these old notebooks full of poems, feeling, songs, quotes etc and then I found this…


The original lyrics for Can’t We Just Be Friends! And the story behind it that I had journaled in detail. 

In other news…

Yesterday, I attended a networking event in Manchester that provided workshops for musicians and their managers. It’s something I applied for and was chosen to attend so an opportunity not to be missed. 


I enjoyed the day and leant a lot about the specific areas I feel I’m lacking momentum in.  As well as funding opportunities with various arts charities.  

Also, check out the latest review of the EP here:

Here’s my favourite part…


Big thanks to James for writing such a great review which includes an interview where I reveal my influences etc! Be sure to have a read!

The next time you can catch me live is on Tuesday 3rd October at the Manchester Food and Drinks Festival and then again on Sunday 8th!
