Hi everyone! :)
I'm back. :) - I'm sorry it has been a while...
I've entered Live/Wired now. :) Thankyou for all of your suggestions and advice. :) Tea Leaves and Old Magazines is actually over 4 minutes long. - So I couldn't enter it into the competition as it was. :( This song entry was for the online voting stage. - There's just a short bio, a picture and a song to listen to from each artist/band. The public vote online for their favourite, and then the top three acts go into a live heat. There are two live heats and then a final. - Last year I got into the live heat, but was poorly so couldn't perform. :(
I did submit Tea Leaves - as I thought that Tripping Through Violets was a bit too summery sounding - but I chopped out the guitar section in the middle. If I did get into the live heats, of course I'd do it properly - but I couldn't really think of any other songs that would be appropriate. I was going to submit Poetry - but then thought that I probably shouldn't, as it doesn't represent my whole sort of style very well - with synthesizers and everything.
Ooh and also - I played at a different pub on Saturday evening - in Nick's band (Helter Skelter)'s break. It's called The Crispin. It was really fun actually. :) The audience seemed to like my set and I got some great feedback. :) - Someone said that I should go to the Open Mic Night at the Comical - so I'm going to look that up! Lol.
And yesterday was my birthday! Lol. Hoooray! Thankyou SOOOO much for your lovely birthday wishes here and on the website, you're all so lovely. :) 19 now...
Now I know what grown-ups mean when they say 'time flies...'
20 next year! :-S How very strange...
Ooh - by the way - Deborah (the lady I mentioned about two posts ago) now has a YouTube channel. I'll be adding some more videos for her today, but there's one there at the mo. Please feel free to have a looky - she's brill and a lovely person. :) www.youtube.com/DeborahHodgson
Thankyou ever so much for your continued support - you really are wonderful people. :)
Lots of love and hugs xoxoxox
