Hello. I realise it has been quite a while since I did a blog post / news update so apologies for the radio silence.
Like most musicians I have not been able to do any shows this year which sucks. Before COVID hit I actually had my busiest year ever planned with a ton of festivals and shows across the country.
I am currently working on my 4th ATP album. I’d like to say that lockdown has meant that I could finish this quicker but in a way it has had the opposite effect. But it is getting there and there is a first draft of it and it sounds awesome.
One of the tracks is actually being released as a single on 02 October and it is called ‘Before the Storm Hits’ and features Tom Wells from Postsmouths Fast Trains on vocals. I sent Tom the backing track at the tail end of 2019 and he did an amazing job adding the lyrics and vocals to the song.
Given everything going on at the moment it feels right to release it now. The lyrics include ‘chaos will reign all around – once busy streets make no sound’ – which is a sign of the way things are at the moment.
You can download the track from my Bandcamp page and it will be on all digital service platforms as well.
The song has had a lot of airplay across the radio and I wanted to thank all the DJs who have been playing it. It really does mean a lot.
So, that is all for now – stay safe and I will be back with more music and hopefully news on playing live again soon.
