I have just realised it has been a year since the release of my debut EP, What’s Mine Is Yours – I can’t believe it! So much has happened since then and it’s been terrific to have you all on board throughout this journey so far 🙂 (Download What’s Mine Is Yours EP here).
Thank you for all your wonderful comments about my new Covers EP. Don’t worry – it doesn’t mean I’ve stopped writing and recording original material! It’s just something Steve and I have wanted to do for a quite some time now. These songs in particular weren’t perhaps obvious choices, especially given how I always go on about my musical influences as coming from the 1970s; America, Bread, The Beach Boys, Steven Bishop etc…I was really keen to choose songs that Steve and I could breathe a completely different sound into. As you can probably imagine, if the two of us went into the studio to record a David Gates song, I would just want to make it sound like a David Gates record! Haha 😀 With these three songs, Steve and I had a lot more scope for creating something that is (I hope!) exciting and original. If you haven’t heard my Every Breath You Take EP yet, please do have a listen – I’d love to know what you think and what your favourite track is! (Download here)
There will be another release on its way soon of some new original songs, that I can’t wait for you to hear! By the way, I really enjoy receiving all your artist and song recommendations! Some of them I have never heard of, and I love the musical education! So please do keep them coming! 🙂
I am currently in Cornwall on holiday for a week. It was like a second home for me as I used to visit several times a year for most of my childhood, so I feel very connected the seaside. The air and the light feels very different to anywhere else I’ve been in this country and I find it so inspiring. Hey, maybe in another life I was a mermaid! Are any of you from down here? I can’t help but think it would be a beautiful place to live… On the subject of places to live, I find it so exciting that all of you, my fans, are from ALL of the globe!! I really cannot WAIT to tour the world one day and perform live in all those incredible venues out there…. Eeeeek! 😀 One day! As soon as I possibly can!
I will be in touch again soon, with holiday photos! 😀
Lots of love,
