I know, I know!
Okay, diary entries shouldn't really be 5 months apart, but unfortunately that's how long it took from me deciding to record a new E.P. to actually getting the thing recorded. I will freely admit to having shocking planning skills.
In all honesty, it has been a learning experience. When I recorded 'Slow Burner', the songs were all a couple of years old and I knew them inside-out, but this time around I actually had to write new songs after making the decision to record, as well as finishing off half-written material for the E.P.
But we're nearing the finish line!
|The office. I have the best job ever!|
Over the last two days I recorded six songs at The Depot Studios in Edinburgh, under the watchful eye and guiding hand of my good friend Craig Ross. We went back to basics, with guitar, vocals, and a sprinkling of harmonica and the odd backing vocal for good measure. It's how I prefer to do things, and will be something slightly different and stripped back from my last recorded offering.

Mastering, artwork, final tracklist, and many other bits and bobs that go along with releasing new music are all yet to be dealt with, and I'll aim to keep everyone updated, but this is the final stretch. I'm looking forward to sharing some music!
