A great month but now need a two week holiday to recover from all the activity. That said, I am blessed to be able to do a job I love and meet some fantastic people both performing and in our own 'back room' team. A big "well done" to Georgia O Keefe winning 2 FSB awards, even if she did poison me and personally meeting one of my own hero's Midge Ure has to be a personal favourite and look forward to working with all of them in the future.
Watch this space in July and currently looking for an animator to make a pop video for one of the songs from Songbook 2 which is flying off the shelves, NOT! Thanks to mum for buying a copy!
