We Are Still Here

Can’t help but feel a little guilty that we haven’t blogged since January. It’s been too long and we apologise. We have been doing things, we’ve just not had the time to update this blog.

Since we last wrote we took a trip down to London and played at the Pelton Arms again as part of the Icarus Club. We hit this joint last year and had a great time. We jumped at the chance to get down south again and had a great evening. We stayed the night at the pub, drank some ale, ate some lovely pub grub and inhaled the banks of the Thames. I became an honorable member of the McEntee crew as Michael’s dad and brother also came down with us.

We also filmed a couple of live videos in our hotel room. Here’s the first and it’s a version of ‘Just For Tonight’ from our album ‘All I Have Is Here‘ which is creeping back in to our live shows of late. We’ll début the second video soon.

 

We also went back to Bedford and played a lovely house show for Maggie and Mark (our second for them) and their lovely friends. The gig went great and I reckon we made some new fans 🙂
Once the house gig was over, we packed up the gear and moved down to The Devonshire Arms at the end of the street to play an evening session. Another good day for us BR boys

We did a low key local gig at The Chess Centre in Camphill last week. Numbers were low but we played well and put some different songs in the set to keep us fresh.

The new album is still being written and 2015 seems to now be a realistic time for it to drop. We are both coming up with some great tunes but want to make sure this album is the best it can be. We have two new songs we’ve played several times in our past handful of gigs. That said, we will have some kind of new release (or two) this year and we will be recording loads of live session videos that we will get out to you throughout the coming months. We are also having a play around with a third musician who may come on the road with us for certain gigs and add his talents to some of our up coming recordings, more on his identity and new stuff later.

Before any of the above happens, I plan to welcome in my second child in a couple of weeks. It’s an exciting time and we cant wait. Will let you know how that all goes when it happens.

Speak soon
Jonathan
