So.. after my last blog post, a lot has happened, so it’s time for an update!
After my first session in Denmark, I spent time with my brother Dom in the studio, who recorded some fantastic parts for On My Own. I also headed back out to Denmark to record all of the vocals and backing vocals for the EP and also help Mike with mixing and production, getting it ready for release! During my time in denmark in November, I played my first ever international gig! This took place at Rampelyset in Silkeborg a great little music venue with a really supportive and attentive audience – it also had a rather good Mexican restaurant below it (musicians need fuel!) Mike Wedgwood joined me on bass on a few numbers as well – what a great gig that was! I was so pleased that this was a super successful trip – and I can’t wait for you to hear the finished product!
The EP will be released on 23.03.2019 on all platforms (Spotify, Itunes, GooglePlay Etc) and hard copies will be available at all gigs on and after that date.
I’m really excited to be releasing my E.P at launch shows in both my home-village – Fovant – and also in Balham, London.
The Fovant launch show will take place on the 23.03.2019 and is at: Fovant Village Hall Fovant Wiltshire It starts at 7:15 PM and is a ticket only event – so please go and grab your tickets from the link below – over half have already gone! Tickets include a glass of fizz (or elderflower) nibbles and canapes.
So, finally after a long wait after numerous delays, I began recording my new E.P in Denmark a week or so ago. Why Denmark? I hear you say. The reason for this is not only did I record my last E.P there (‘Keeping On’) but it is also home of fantastic musician, engineer, producer and old friend, Michael Wedgwood. He is based in Silkeborg and has a great little studio perfect for my music.
I also had the pleasure of working again with Eddi Jarl Sørensen on drums + Henrik Skriver on guitar. Fantastic guys, and fantastic musicians. What they add to the E.P is invaluable.
This new E.P is going to be four tracks with songs that you would’ve only heard if you’ve seen me live recently, or possibly on youtube. So in my eyes, it’s feeling pretty fresh!
I’m currently getting ready for another session in Denmark in the following weeks which will include recording all the lead + backing vocals. I’m also going to have some saxophone on this EP courtesy of my brother and fellow muso – Dom which I’m super excited about!
I’m hoping to complete all the recording for the E.P. after the next sessions and then it’ll just be mixing, mastering and getting the physical copies prepped and ready! I’m hoping to release in Spring 2019, so keep your eyes peeled on my social media pages for E.P launch info, pre-order etc etc!
I’m really looking forward to play at the infamous Half Moon in Putney, London on Monday 22nd October with my trio (Dom Thatcher on Sax & Tom Thatcher on Bass). This is a great venue and it’s my debut there so
