A Happy New Year to everyone.
2017 saw the release of ‘Quirky Musings’, the second album by Kinky Wizzards and my first album with the two brothers. This is a project that we had been working on since the summer of 2014 and it was amazing to get the record out there after years doing live shows and recordings. This record is an instrumental rock jazz album that was a heck of a lot of fun to write and record, it is also very fun to play live and the three of us are very eager to do more music with this band and continue to push ourselves.
Following on from it’s release, we did a some shows with Magenta and these are amongst some of the most enjoyable concerts I have ever played at. Here is some GoPro footage of a cover of Rush’s YYZ that we performed in Cardiff.
I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has bought a copy of Quirky Musings or listened to it through other means and came along to one of our performances.
As we enter the new year, here are the following updates that I can share with you:
Throughout last year, I have been working on the new material for album 3 and plans are currently in place to record it in the Spring and Summer. I very much look forward to putting this new material together and I will keep you up to date.
I have also started working on new material with the brothers and we will be working on this throughout the year with plans for a live performance shoot later on in the year.
I am currently working in the Middle East but plans for live shows are being put in place for the summer of 2018 when I am going to be spending a few months in the UK. Live shows will definitely happen for KW but I also hope it can happen for ES too and that remains for me a big personal goal.
I wish you all the best for the coming year.
