Well a new year is upon us and the rain continues to fall. This should at least afford me some studio time where I hope to add some more videos of my latest album 'Alchemy' to my YouTube channel. I also hope to get more backing tracks and videos up on my media site including one or two from my latest album. Later on in the year I hope to start work on my next studio album!
25,000 subscribers reached on YouTube this month, thanks for all the support! I'm also delighted to be able to report that my composition 'Mirage' from my 2007 album 'Terra Nova' is to be featured in a BBC Television documentary on Tuesday 8th December. The program is called 'Boy on the Bicycle' and documents the plight of a group of children entangled in the Syrian refugee crises and is part of the 'My Life' series. It is to be shown at 5pm on CBBC!
Four years since my last official release and Alchemy is finally ready to order on both CD and DD format! Hurrah!
I am pleased to announce that I am now an official endorser of the G7th Capo Company! Their new classical guitar model is only 53.5 grams as opposed to the previous 79 gram version. It's lighter and grips better...an improvement on an already near perfect product!
I am pleased to announce that I am now an official endorser of Red Bear picks! These picks are the business and if you haven't tried them yet what's keeping you? A big thanks to Dave for sending me these wonderful picks, I am delighted to be part of the Red Bear family!
OK so a whole year has passed by without much happening and even sadder...no new album so I must really pull my finger out this year. Things are changing so rapidily in this industry and if you don't keep up it's easy to get left behind. This year I hope to make many more videos including performance videos of my Alchemy material. I will also be working hard on my next album that I hope to have out by the end of the year. In the meantime and in a moment of insanity to kick-start 2017 I'm offering a 20% discount off all bookings made during the month of January!
Best wishes Al.
