I'm very pleased to say I've signed to Esoteric Recordings and I'll be releasing a new solo album called Lucid early in 2014. Thanks for all the kind words about the announcement.
I really like the people who run the label and they are working with some great artists including Todd Rundgren, Jack Bruce, Van Der Graaf Generator, Sanguine Hum, Steve Hackett and many more.
I've thought long and hard about this and I think it's a logical move, I can't keep up with doing everything on my own anymore with the amount of workload involved with all my other commitments. The guys at Esoteric have also helped me to get some really good gigs.
Esoteric are an imprint of Cherry Red Records who have put out loads of stunning records over the years, including the classic Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables by The Dead Kennedys one of my favorite albums.
Thanks for all your support so far, I really appreciate it :)
A unique window of opportunity, that's what the last few years have been. Blogs, podcasts, word of mouth, Celebr8,"northern prog", Jon Gomm, Mike Kenneally, Prog magazine, Twang and the Peel, support slots, Twitter, Facebook, forums, CRS, Youtube, Acoustic Magazine, international stuff, UStream and much more.
Most importantly an enthusiastic audience!
Not sure that way of working would work again.
I'm going to focus on getting this recorded while Kev mixes the Fierce And The Dead record. And some interesting collaborations!
My last album Relic is available now. You can order it here.
