Playing my show at the studio Bar for the second time on the tour was a joyful experience.
I was alot more relaxed with having been there before and was fed will prior to soundcheck by the wonderful Jak. Jak also got me the show and so I feel double indebted to her.
My support for the night was a wonderful musician called Matt Bond. He has a very delicate style and his writing is honest and heartfelt. Speaking to him also revealed he has a severe speech impediment which is evident in conversation yet vanishes in song. It adds more depth to his music when you know he is really saying what he wants in his music.
For my set I felt very confident and happy to experiment with what was a huge and great sounding PA system. I decided to open with a song I hadn’t played in maybe a couple of years. The song is called ‘Because’ and is the closing track to my Debut album. It’s a real sparse number and so to be perfomed the live the atmosphere has to be just right.
From Because I looped into the track ‘Default:Escape’ This is a brand new tune which only had it’s 2nd outing that night. The rest of the set flowed well and I ended on the tune ‘Resonate’ which was written 6 months back whilst in New Zealand.
