Don’t let the coldbloods take the stage…

Happy New Year to you! Had brilliant gigs in 2017, and hoping for more of the same this year. Not much in the way of gigs, to start this year – I’m trying to get my next album finished. I shall be in Colchester and Hannover at some point. And back to London, Croydon and Freiburg, possibly, too. Such is the beautifully odd nature of my varied gig list.

Crumbs From The Richman’s Table, my next Sieben album, is coming along nicely. I have ten tracks so far:

Crumbs / Sell Your Future / Just Be A Lot Nicer  / Forge A Better World / Sleep Our Dream / Post-Brexit Dreams Of Albion / Here Is The News / We Will Be Alright / I Will Ignore The Apocalypse / Coldbloods

Here’s a snippet of Coldbloods for you:

Coldbloods

Who let the hawks hang the higher ground? Who led the crows to circle round?

Starting to feel a little nervous now. (Don’t-let-them-near-the-switch-hey)

Who let the vipers take a hold? A slither of lies that became a road.

Can’t just be me that’s starting to feel a little nervous now.

Who let the primal shape control? Who let instinct steer the wheel?

Can’t just be me that’s starting to feel a little nervous now.

(Don’t-let-the-coldbloods-take-the-stage)

Who let the reptiles free their cage? Who let them loose on the modern age?

Who let the reptiles free their cage? Can’t just be me that’s starting to feel a little nervous now.

Still no plans for a release date. I want to write some more songs for this before its done. And properly make sure its exactly as I want it. And sit on it for a few months and try and do some proper promotion for it, for once. Though, I always say that and then when I get the copies made they start ‘burning a hole in my pocket’ and I itch to get them out there and heard.

Wishing you all the best 2018 🙂

Sell Your Future! (happy festivities)

I’m still working hard on the next Sieben album, Crumbs From The Rich Man’s Table. Determined to take it nice and steady, and reach some new ground with this one. Drummer extraordinaire Tom (Didi) Didlock has been adding his own magnificence to the tracks Sell Your Future and Coldbloods. Love his drumming, and immensely happy with what he’s done for me. Check him out with either of his bands, Loam, and Blind Saints. I’m feeling like there will be lots of drums on this album. Here’s a snippet from Sell Your Future:

Hope to see you at a concert somewhere in 2018 –  hope you like this snippet, too. More to follow as I do them. 8 of the 15 or so tracks are now written for Crumbs. Happy festivities, all x

Crumbs!

Crumbs indeed. Been a while since I posted. Lots of lovely gigs so far this year, and a first time gig in Hungary, which was damn fine.

I’ve been busy working on a new Sieben album, which will be Redroom 020. Not to be released for a while yet, though, I still need to write it. Taking my time with this, whilst working my ears off endlessly. The attached snippet is from the title track of this album, which will be called Crumbs From The Rich Man’s Table. It features beautiful and sassy vocals from Sheffield’s own Zowie Lumsdale, singer with The Vain Dolls. She did it all, amazingly, in ten minutes too, leaving us loads more time to eat chicken. Playing a cave tonight, but you can see me guesting with The Cuckoo Clocks, a truly fabulous band and a pleasure to join their ‘gang’ online, tomorrow (Sat 30 Sept) at 10pm BST, here.

Off to my cave. Hope you enjoy the teaser for the new album 🙂
