FABULOUS PIVOTAL ALBUM LAUNCH PHOTOGRAPHS
Firstly, my apologies... What with touring (more on that soon), recovering from said tour, preparing my van for winter, building new websites and ironing out bugs here and there, this post has been a long time coming. But I didn't want to miss it completely because as you will see these photos deserve to be shared so, better late than never!
We had an album launch!
It took place at the Sound and Audio Engineering Institute in Littlemore Oxford where we turned their large live room recording studio into an intimate live music venue for an evening.
The night got off to a brilliant start with a set from a super talented singer songwriter friend of mind Beth Thornton. She went down a storm, totally blew the audience away, so it's not surprising that great things are happening for Beth right now. If you haven't already you can check her out here.
I was joined by my band, most of whom featured on the album in some way too so we were celebrating their contributions too. On the album launch night the band were: Cheryl Pearce on backing vocals, Matt Baker on keys, Ryan Robinson on electric guitar, Rory Geisow on bass, George Shilling on Cello (and tambourine).
My dear friend and (ex) neighbour Johnnie Littler compared the evening. We had a brilliant night and everyone said how much they'd enjoyed it. If you haven't got a copy of the new album Pivotal yet you can get a download below or a hard copy from my shop, also below. So here you go... my favourite photos from the album launch:
Madly coloured as I am, I totally loved this photo. I thin I look like I just stepped into an Andy Warhol film.
I invited Rodeo and Dan from film company Rodeax Ltd to come and film the gig for us, partly for posterity, partly for Youtube and partly for a DVD that I am planning to release in the spring. We just spent last weekend editing it an it's looking really great. I'm really looking forward to sharing that with you so watch out for that.
And all these photos were taken by this gentleman...
...The fantastic Andy Teo of Photocillin Photography who in addition to this great set of photos, also deserves credit for the fantastic photos that make up my album art and this website - Thanks Andy.
Anyway, that's it for now. I'll keep you posted about the coming DVD and soon I'll share the Shane Filan tour pics too... 'til then,
Lots of love,
