Important lessons consolidated this last few weeks.. down time is as important as up time!!..
I had two cancelled solo gigs in the space of 3 days last week.. normally gutted but realising this time 1. There isnt always an appetite from the public for a certain type of event and 2. I cant compete with eurovision..
No matter how much belief i have something has to give.. however with the spare time.. i had fun.. meeting mates.. photo opportunity.. wrote and learnt a new poem for live gigs and best of all The Dirt made a new track..
First in a long time.. and it felt ace!!!.. and its a fkn banger!!!.. using lyrics i have (some folk will know them!!) And creating a sonic loop beaut.. its up to the midfield general.when it makes the live set.. but im chomping at the bit to share it.
Also with cancellations comes a breather .. thinking space.. tbe ability to accept new style events.. and plan stuff.. so i am leaening!!!
