This exciting event features live performances from Cale Tyson, Gretchen Peters, Danny & The Champions of the World, Dreaming Spires, to name but a few. Tickets for this event can be purchased here.
I am very fortunate to be touring with Paul Carrack for a 3rd year. Dates so far are as follows:
You may have noticed that I have posted performances we did for Under the Apple Tree Sessions with Whispering Bob Harris recently. Thank you for watching and sharing. Just in case you missed them, I thought I would send you the links so you could check them out. These include a couple of new tracks that we have recorded and a version of one of my favourite Pink Floyd songs “Wish You Were Here”.
In addition to this Bob has also invited me and the band to go and do a Radio 2 session in January which will be ready for around the time of the album release. This is just one of the a few great things to have come from the Under the Apple Tree Sessions and of course meeting Bob. Please go and check out the Under the apple tree site and support the brilliant Bob does for unsigned musicians.
I can tell you all, that we are very close to finishing the album. All that is left to do is to add the last few finishing touches and Mix and Mastering. There will be some exciting news about the mixing of the album, which I can’t wait to tell you more about once it is all finalised.
Recent events mean that it’s going to be more important to release the album earlier next year, in order to give it the best chance of success. This is something you have all contributed to and I thank you so much for your patience and support. I am looking forward to having the album finished and you all hearing it.
I’m also excited to tell you I have another trip planned to Nashville at the end of March 2016. Since the last visit in 2014, I was invited to play at the Bluecoat as part of the “BlueBird to the Bluecoat” sessions, where myself and 20 other songwriters had the chance to play a song to great Nashville songwriters such as Kim Richie, Don Henry, Jim Lauderdale and Radio 2’s Bob Harris. Many great things have come from this, including the opportunity to play at the Bluebird Cafe.
As you will know, we will be releasing the new album on Vinyl, but a lot of you have enquired about a vinyl edition of “Life in Easy Steps”. Therefore we have decided to do a 300 limited edition Vinyl, which will be personally signed and numbered. This will feature the album plus a 7” single of The Bomb complete with booklet and collectible postcards. These albums will be available at gigs in January onwards but to ensure you get your copy you can pre-order it now. Keep your eyes peeled for more details.
Things have been quiet whilst we have concentrated on the album, but don’t worry we have been planning for next year which will see some exciting gigs including festivals, support tours, a tour of my own and some interesting collaborations.
In Session with Dave Monks can be listened to again here.
Robert talks about the new album and performs two new songs i.e. “Lady” and “Dancing with Devils”. The session starts about 30 minutes into the show.
Exit 97.7 radio station in the US, got in touch with the team a short while ago via Paul at the International Music Community.
They’ve decided that they would like to play Demons on the station in their ‘across the pond‘ feature.
The show is:
- introduced by Charlie Ashcroft from Amazing Radio (London)
- and is then presented Dave Michaels at 9am ET (New York)
- and then again by Chris Wienk at 2pm ET, (who is utterly groovy – check him out) (New York)
- and then finally by KTG at 7PM ET (New York)
Chris (other than being groovy) is kinda cool, as he plays music that gives listeners the chance to hear tunes that they may not have heard before, and has been our main contact.
Tune in – have a listen – get groovy!
Happy New Year all as promised here is a live video of the new song called “Holy”, this song will be recorded in the new year and I hope you enjoy it.
I am back on tour with Paul Carrack next week but we are also in the process of finalising a band headline tour for April and the dates are coming along nicely. However, if you are a venue or a promoter and you would like to add a date our schedule, then please get in touch with Margi.
Again thank you for the continued support, our numbers continue to grow and at this rate we will be able to get a decent 5-a side going (with subs).
So we will catch you at the shows we will be doing in 2015 and in addition there will be a new album to play to you lovely lot.
From myself and The Band, Margi and all at Robert Vincent HQ. Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Lots of Love
