So, What Are We Up to During the Lockdown???
Date: 15th April 2020
Like so many musicians, the Covid-19 outbreak and resulting lockdown has made a huge difference to our plans for this springtime. If you’re wondering what we’re up to during this time, here’s details of a few of our most recent adventures and plans for the future.
Since the summer of 2019 we’ve been recording and releasing a weekly YouTube show we call ‘The Sofa Sessions’. At time of writing we’ve just released episode thirty-six with a new episode released on our YouTube channel every Friday morning. Little did we know when we started the series that it would provide an ideal source of musical entertainment for our followers during a lockdown across the globe! Work on new episodes continues as we head toward celebrating a full year of weekly shows.
As part of The Sofa Sessions we’ve also premiered two new songs ‘Every Story’ and ‘A Thousand Nights Before’. These new songs, along with our December 2019 single ‘Two Heart Rendezvous’ and a host of other new tunes will form our next album, to be recorded and launched later this year.
While attended gigs are obviously not possible during the lockdown, we are doing regular Facebook Live concerts. To date we have appeared for Nashville Meets World, Live in The Living Room and DC Brown’s Virtual Writers Round. We’re also kicking off a new weekly Facebook Live show, the ‘Songs & Stories Collective’ with the wonderful Donna Marie and Sarah Yeo, again supported by DC Brown.
Finally, we’re busy planning live gigs for later in the year. While some bookings remain uncertain, we’re happy to report we will be appearing at the rescheduled Country on The Coast festival, at the Live in The Living Room Festival at the Bedford in Balham and, restrictions willing, will be returning to Nashville in November for another string of gigs there.
Until we see you again (hopefully soon) stay safe!
