The UK tour rolls relentlessly on like some hectic folk juggernaut (metaphor fail), bringing me this morning to sunny Bristol. Shows have been ace, crowds have been lovely, playing new and old songs alike has been a joy. We’re now less than 2 weeks away from the album release, and I’ll be announcing fresh US and Canadian tour dates next week, and then some UK and European ones the week after that. Bliss.
Joining us on a short leg of the tour is an old friend of mine, Mr Greg Nolan. Greg is a (official club) photographer who I’ve known for a long time – he was a Nambucca stalwart and took the front cover shot for “Love Ire & Song”. Greg’s on the bus for some hardcore tour documentation, in which you can get seriously involved.
First of all, Greg will be posting some cool, intimate / behind-the-scenes shots of life on tour on his photo blog. He’s also been throwing little video clips up on his Tumblr site as well. They’re both worth checking for the next few days (he’s with us till Friday, then again in Winchester and at the Barfly show in London).
The other thing he’s doing is putting crowd shots from the gigs up on my facebook page – you can go check it out and tag yourself if you spot yourself in a pic. Hurrah! We’ll be adding loads more in the coming days. You can also follow Greg on Twitter right here.
In other news, some videos for you to check out – firstly, me speaking some more Polish. And then there was me on US TV – the Carson Daley show no less – which you can watch here. Incidentally, as well as “England Keep My Bones” not being my debut record, I did also have a great TV spot filmed in Tuscon AZ last year which is also worth a look. Enjoy.
