As months go, December is a sweet month, but it shall be an exciting month especially this year.
I shall be putting out my first songs on a label for the very first time. Just by chance I shall be on two compilations coming out within the next few weeks.
The first to come out shall be the Creation for Causes ‘13 compilation on 6th December, which shall be raising money for the Feel Yourself Campaign (in conjunction with Gland Rock) and I am pleased to be lending ‘Change My Ways’ for the occasion. Also involved are New Desert Blues, Battery Hens, Curxes, Rickyfitts, Shipton, YOOFS, Shipton, Cycle Schmeichel, Danny Wright And His Imaginary Friends, Noyo Mathis, Deluxe Flamingoes and Samphier Movie Night. Phew! Check out all the info here: https://www.facebook.com/creationforcauses
The second is for Strong Island Records with their 'Treacherous Tides Volume I' out on 16th December. They’ve been waiting to put out ‘I Can’t Stand’ since the day I recorded it, so please to finally put it out and join their label family. The full tracklisting is:
Dead Rabbits ‘God’
Yoofs ‘Hazy Days’
The Boy I Used To Be ‘I Can’t Stand’
Tyrannosaurus Dead ‘Matthew’
Boneyards ‘Vega Chain’
Thee MVP’s ‘US Airways’
Honeycomb Bones ‘Keep Your Fever’
The Red Cords ‘Big Waves’

ON TOP OF THAT, I also have two shows to see out 2013 with, one already sold out (I KNOW RIGHT!?!?!?) and the other in a Blissfields Festival presents show, so come along to that one instead:
06/12 - The Horse and Groom, Alresford
21/12 - The Cellars at Eastney, Portsmouth w/Kassassin Street
The Portsmouth News has also nominated me for Best Solo Artist at The Guide Awards, which is awesome. If you think I am alright, can stand a few of my songs and wanna spare a few seconds, give me a vote plz - http://www2.portsmouth.co.uk/snap/Guide13r1/guide13v1.htm
