It feels as though I haven't written a blog post in a while and so I though it was about time I did! I have had a couple weeks without any gigs which has been the perfect opportunity to relax and do some writing. I'm really excited to share some of my new material during these next few gigs!
I'm meant to be in America at the moment but unfortunately our holiday had to be cancelled because I wasn't well enough to get a visa but I'm looking forward to going in the future when I'm feeling a lot more up to it! It wasn't all bad though as we went to Spain for a week instead.

It was incredibly hot there but several outings to the frozen yogurt shop and swimming in the sea got us through the heat! On day two I was exploring the house we were staying in and found a guitar hidden away at the back of a wardrobe and it was somehow still in tune! My cousin was staying with us and so we decided to start filming for a music video as you don't get many opportunities to film on the beach! We captured some footage for a new song I've recently written called 'We were burning' and spent a few afternoons finding things like boats and footprints on the beach. We even got up at half past 5 one morning (which is not what you're supposed to do when you're meant to be on holiday!) to watch the sun rise over the sea. It was rather spectacular!
We arrived home the other day to a cold, rainy Stroud which didn't feel much like summer at all!  

Just before I went to Spain a few friends and I went to Barn on the Farm Festival!
We had been so excited to go after we had such a great weekend last year. We were also excited as now we have finished school we were able to stay and enjoy the whole weekend and not have to leave early! My friend Tanis and I were lucky enough to get Friday tickets too.                         On the Friday there are only a small number of tickets and so it was very quiet. We saw some great performances from Mike Dignam, Hudson Taylor and Gabrielle Aplin. We also tried to collect as many set lists as we could over the weekend. I think we managed about ten which wasn't too bad;) There was a massive thunder and lightning storm that night which was rather scary with only two of us but luckily the tent wasn't too flooded inside!

So now the holiday is over I think I better start performing again! First up is the Seed Festival at Hawkwood College this Sunday at 2pm. Check out their website for more details!:

That's all from me for now!
