Can you believe it's 2017 already? Well it is, so let's get on with it!
The year ahead looks colourful - if last year was at best a little dark, with so many famous stars and artists passing away in one way or another including Bowie, Lemmy and George Michael, then the year ahead can only be better. A lot of fundamental changes to life's organisation were made last year including the vote for Brexit and the vote for Trump. Everyone has an opinion on it in some way, but when all is said and done we will only find out how theses decisions truly pan out, in the course of time - so don't get too caught up in worrying about the consequences before they happen. Let's write some music about interesting things that happen in the lives around us, which influence us and shape us.
We already have with one artist who came to the studio last week with her new song. One of the lines in this song is 'its all on you' and she is right. It's a simple message - Don't blame others for your faults.
Let's get on with making music - if you are thinking about recording some songs you enjoy singing or have new ideas you want crafting into a song, get in touch. Cheers.
PS the picture here was taken on holiday in Berlin at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. An absolutely fascinating place simply comprising 54 rows x 87 columns of concrete blocks, all very slightly different. A very, very quiet place but also a place that shows art can be created from anything with enough thought. This memorial is only concrete but used cleverly to create a lasting memory.
