I love November, not only because it’s the month of my birthday (hint hint) but because of the cosy nights in by the fire, tea, movies, songwriting, staying up late playing the piano and more so, because Christmas is around the corner.
The last few months have been hectic with my music, hence the absence of my blog!! Sorry!!
I recently did a music video for my song “The Rooftops in Paris” filmed by Paul Brown and recorded at Link Academy Studios in Derry, along side a group of awesomely talented musicians. I had Conor Mc Cauly on drums, Marc Forbes on double bass, Becca o’Doherty on violin and myself on piano and vocals. All of which gave a lovely Parisian sound to the track. Just what I wanted!
The video will be posted on my facebook page and on Link Academy pretty soon so keep an eye out for it.
If you follow my twitter you’ll have noticed been back and forth to London recently.
I did a really cool gig in Battersea south London for producer Andy Wright in the Candle Maker music venue. Such a cool wee spot if you get a chance to call in. The night was full of amazing acts including my talented big brother Keith who was over recording his new album that week.
My mum and dad flew over for the gig too which was so much fun (ain’t no party like a Harkin party )
I’m heading back over to London in December to perform at Andy Wrights Christmas party that I’m looking forward to! I’m singing a song of my own and also a Christmas song, so if you have any suggestions please send them my way! Andy is a really cool producer that has worked with some top acts including Simply Red, Annie Lennox and Pavarotti!! I’m delighted to be invited to perform for him again!
Did any of you tune into my performance on BBC Radio Foyle this month?? I always enjoy performing on this station and love that so many of you tune in online around the world! I got emails and tweets saying some of you in America, Canada and Australia to name a few were listening in to my performance, which is unbelievable as it was either very late or early for you!! Thanks for the support guys!!
I also performed at the WOW (Woman of the World) festival last week at their wrap up party which was a lot of fun performing alongside amazing musicians from my home town Derry. The festival was a huge success again this year and congrats to Claire McDermott who ran an awesome show again! Amazing events with some amazing woman taking part.
If any of you are around this month I’m performing an acoustic set in Derry in the Grand Central Friday 28th of Nov. It would be lovely to see your faces! Come along and say hello!
As for this week I’m back in the studio rehearsing and recording for my upcoming album! It’s all go! Drop me a wee email and keep in touch over at firstname.lastname@example.org I love to hear from you all
Until next month’s Christmas blog….
