Love, Peace & Unity

I have had one of the most inspirational days of my live. My good friend Alex came to visit us in Worcester. Now Alex is one of the most genuine, talented and humble people I know. His music is based around the ideals of peace, love and nature. The beautiful message coupled with fantastic guitar work sends shivers down my spine and today I was lucky enough to play guitar with him and have what us musicians like to call a "jamming session". I watched and listened in awe as he showed me some of his music. After listening to some of his music I told him I was embarrassed to play in front of him but being the nice guy he is he insisted I play. So I did. We went on to jam for a couple of hours until he had to go back to Cardiff.

Listening to his music and talking to him about it for hours really inspired me to go out and write some new songs. So I did. Me and my friend Steve went down to a secluded spot by the river that runs through Worcester and sat there for a bout an hour and a half watching the world go by and started writing lyrics. We wrote a song about the beauty in the world and how the hustle and bustle of the 9 - 5 makes people blind to the beauty we saw in front of us. It's still working progress but I feel happy about the direction it's heading in.

If you would like to check out my boy Alex's music visit:

it's well worth a listen.

Can you give it?

Possibly my favourite Maccabees song. Sick tune live at Reading 2010 (I was there!). Enjoy!

What The Crow Brings...

Is there anything more soothing than watching the rain and listening to the very phenomenal Low Anthem? I don't know if there is. Nature and beauty. Pretty lush, don't you agree?

This Is Growing Up...

Writing new material is a fun process. I really love it. Since the summer I've managed to write 4 solid songs that I hope to record at my student house in Worcester (DIY FTW!). I've also been told today that my good friend Tom is going to a marketing project using Tom RDD... RESULT! By the end we should have some amazing promo work and a music video. Exciting times!

In other news my life is going in a very positive direction... and that's all I have to say about that.

So say we all

I've Hidden My Feelings Under Rocks...

As I have decided to start posting again I think it's only right that I give you a little musical pleasure. My friend Alex, who has help expand my knowledge of music (especially folk music) immensely, told me to check this guy out. So I did and I loved this track. So enjoy the music of Jeff Lang.
