Have a listen...

So I've not checked in for a while, but here's what's been going on - 

I finally gave up waiting for my P.A. system from Gear4music and, in fairness to them, they refunded my money straight away. So, I found a cheaper, second-hand one on Gumtree and it works fine so I'm a happy camper.

And I spoke to Steve at the Central Entertainment Bureau (an entertainment agency in Dunboyne), and he said they should be able to get me some gigs, although he recommended that I learn some more contemporary songs! So I've broadened my repertoire to include some stuff by The Killers, Kings of Leon, Amy Winehouse, Snow Patrol, and Florence and the Machine. Sure, it's no harm to spice things up a bit. 

I saw an ad on Gumtree for Paul Woodward studios - they're doing a deal - €100 for ten hours in the recording studio, so I've decided to just head in some day soon and try to get as many tunes down as possible. I was hoping that the next time I did some recording, it would be with a well-rehearsed, full band, but that's not where I'm at yet. Anyway, you can't really argue with such a deal, so I might as well do the recording and release the cd with cdbaby, considering they keep mailing me coupons to put out albums (instead of paying $35), and there's no point in letting them go to waste. 

That's about it for now, will try to update a bit more regularly in future, slán anois

ps. speaking of(in) Irish, cheannaigh mé fáinne (airgid) ar an idirlinn inniu agus déanfaigh mé mo dhícheall Gaeilge a labhairt nuair atá an seans agam :)
