Well what a really incredible and interesting start to the new year. This year, I had thoughts that i'd pick up my live game and start working on performing more, but we're now suddenly in this interesting time of isolation and social distancing and it's time to re-evaluate and pick different goals.
How have you all been getting on being at home, either in isolation with your family, friends or alone? I've found that being on my own, routine is really important to me during this time. I treat each day like a working day, I find time to myself and make sure I take my daily outside exercise, as it's important for me to have time outside my house. I'm also writing and recording in my own home studio, i'm making sure I'm connecting with my family and friends and still continuing collaborations with my other songwriter and artist friends and just taking each day at a time.
So my new plan for this year is release! 1st May saw the start of releases i've been working on in collaboration with Alex JL. I've also been working and re-working some songs i've written in collaborations that I love so much, I thought taking a stripped-back angle on those would be a good way of getting the songs down, so I've recorded 3 tracks at home with the help of my gorgeous friend Jack Bowden (who is an incredible singer/songwriter) and now have the bug to do more, so watch this space!
I'm also practicing gratitude for the time we have now. The time to reflect and heal, the time to meditate and try and focus on what's important in our lives. I hope you and your loved ones are all staying well and healthy during this time and that we come out better and stronger on the other side. Lots of love x
