Fabled preparations continue at lightening speed: re-writes and records have been done, soundtrack tweeks continue, new props are materialising and rehearsals are going great guns at Jackson’s Lane – very grateful for the space!
Many things (like actually buying my train/coach ticket up to Edinburgh) are backing up but every day brings progress!
The Postcards Cabaret at Jackson’s Lane last month was a storming success (find amazing pictures of the night by AbsolutQueer Photography here) and, off the back of it, I’m performing on the Bandstand at the Secret Garden Party this Sunday. Somehow I’m going to pull a 20 minute Lois of the Lane act out of the bag…
On top of all this, I’ve added a new song to my songs page. Please find ‘Android‘ there for your delectation.
Just got back from an afternoon in North London spent stretching my musical muscle.
Jason Ware has asked me to provide some vocals, violin and guitar on the soundtrack he’s currently putting together for his upcoming film “Pink Cake” and today was the designated day to show him what I’d come up with so far. It seems both of us are pleased, so that’s a good start! Should be heading into the studio in the next couple of weeks to get my contributions down.
I don’t give myself much of a chance to indulge myself musically on a regular basis, so I’m really glad of this opportunity. When anything’s available to listen to I’ll let you know. It’s sounding very good so far. Jason’s a great songwriter, and he’s got some very talented people on board to record the soundtrack with him. (I feel privileged!) The movie looks set to be a corker too. Keep your eyes and ears peeled…
