It’s a truly gorgeous day here in Venice, California. We’ve had some very grey and windy days recently, the whistling and howling was relentless. I live in southern California, not northern Scotland, for a reason. But today is sunny and warm, and the ocean is a beautiful bluegreen.
I just got in from a bike ride on along the beach, it’s a great way to keep my heart pumping and gives me new sounds to build songs on. A friend recently gave this bike to me. It’s old and rusted and has no brakes, but it’s fun and fast, so I’m pretty sure it’s going to be the instrument of my death.
I babysat a couple of dogs for a friend yesterday. Good dogs. I’m still not in a position to have a dog of my own, but having these guys around is fun. They’re super smart and way too cute.
We’re giving away ‘Victory Tree’ this week as a free download:
Our tour manager is also booking shows for our West Coast tour and we’ve been rehearsing quite a bit to get in shape for it and the tons of shows we have coming up in May. It’ll be my first formal tour, so it’s going to be a lot of fun.
Well, I should get going, I have a song to write. I hope to see you soon.
All the best,
