Yesterday I received an email from BBC Introducing saying I’ve been playlisted for the show on Saturday at BBC Merseyside! Tune in at 8pm to hear one of the tracks from my EP, I’ll leave it a surprise as to which one 😉
Recently I’ve been writing loads and focusing on honing my writing skills. By really focusing on that side of things, I haven’t stopped writing! Last week, I managed 3 songs and last night I sat down with the phrase “Wasted Time” running around my head and by 11pm I had a fully formed song. I’m not taking this for granted, when writers block hits, it usually hits hard! I’ve shared 2 songs over on Facebook. I’ll explain a little more about them now…
Whilst on the train home from Manchester one day, I took a picture out of the window. I tried to take a nice picture of the fields as the light was making them look really pretty, instead, my phone focused on the rain.
Here’s the song that came out that same evening…
I wrote going wild over a whole Friday, it didn’t even feel like I was writing a song. I just kept picking up the Guitar and jamming with the same chords. By the end of the day, I had this fully formed Song that I could NOT get out of my head (as much as I tried!)
Here’s the video I made…
This is a song I’d love to take to a recording studio, the list for my dream album get bigger every day!
I’ll hopefully be sharing a few more songs over the coming weeks so stay tuned and make sure you are connected to me on all the social media platforms below!
