The Forever-On-Tour Van – Chapter 3

Once we’d gotten over the initial excitement of being able to live wherever we want.. No, scrap that.. Once we’d learnt to more effectively hide our excitement about being able to live wherever we want, we dug deeper into the world of work and are now back on the unstoppable conveyor belt of self employment….


The Forever-On-Tour Van – Chapter 2

Wake up in a new place every day – I am already so very in love with this lifestyle. We went back to Manchester, caught up with Ad’s parents and fitted the sink (a wise decision) then we found out my new niece was on her way into the world, so we spent the night…


The Forever-On-Tour Van – Chapter 1

Not really knowing how many days it’s been since we set off, or whether that lovely thing that happened was today, or three days ago – this is the feeling of just living, I suppose. I’ve missed it! We set off in the van to try out the lifestyle and work out whether certain things needed…


New User Instructions

Stand me in the corner, I’ll be silent. Stand me if you can; caught between the welcome and the ban. Cut me into tiny little pieces, cut me out of shots, draw me; I am here, join the dots. Think of all the birds as they are sleeping, missing from the sky, think of all the wonder…


November Newsletter (2015)

Hello ! Firstly, thank you so much for signing up to the Newsletter – It really means the world to me to have your support, and I’m glad you like the music ! Special thanks in particular to everyone who bought the EP. After 18 months in the making, we finally left boat life behind,…


Europe Bound

I thought it might be a good idea to document the current plan – as a means of either remembering it, or having record of it when it turns out we didn’t actually do it. Having said that, we absolutely are definitely doing this, as we have handed in our notice on the house, and…


Loop Pedal Debut – Highway to V-Festival

So last night I performed amongst 11 fairly heavy rock (and variants of rock) bands as part of a ‘battle of the bands’ type shindig – to win a place in the final, to then win overall and open up V-Festival next month. I sent them my music and social links, got put through to…


Goodbye, Boat

It’s been a few months since I wrote here, which is bizarre.. I feel like I barely blinked and the time was gone, Summer came and went, as did Oxford, as did our current experience of living on the water. I’m left a little tired and overwhelmed.. I’m left with a racing heart, a foggy head,…


From where the thought first came..

From where the thought first came, a misty, dark, yet homely corner, among vultures engaged in drinking and conversations of who and where.. from this very place, a small frame with a limitless mind, sober and sobering, barely contained in the most human of skin and clothes and colours, outwardly pondered – why? It could…


Anyway..

Recording in the small confines of the boat seems like it should be more difficult than it is; you can hardly turn around without knocking something over, and then there’s the rocking caused by passing boats, the rain on the roof. etc. But it’s just been.. brilliant. We’re moored out in the sticks where it’s…
