I thought I’d try talking with my mouth this week rather than my fingers. A bit new… but I loved it.
Click play if you get a moment, and let me know if I should do more.
Answering these questions from last week
What's going through your mind when you're performing live? You often look so tied-up and involved in the moment that you're not aware of anything else..... but in reality, you may be thinking of painting the spare room or who made the smell near the bar earlier...
What is the most confusing youtube comment you've seen on one of your videos?
Give a choice which one would you like most to cover one of your songs - Christine McVie or Stevie Nicks?
There must be many memorable moments that you have witnessed as a performer on stage, what is your funniest memory?
What, if anything, did you learn from the great, late, Colin Vearncombe?
What are all the guitar tunings you've used across all the songs you've written so far?
Out of all the venues you've played, which one has been your favourite, and why?
If you could learn to play any other instrument, what would it be?
How do you feel when you see someone covering one of you songs - is it a bit weird seeing someone else sing the words which were once in your head?
It seems like you've not played at that many (UK) festivals since. Is that correct, and if so, are there any reasons for that?
What's one of your musical "guilty pleasures" some people might be surprised about?
Any chance of a tutorial for The Floods? Even just a simplified version?
Want more like this? Got an idea for something else? Drop it in the comments.
Have a great week everyone!
