The Swapsies

(Andy, Huw, Sean, El - The Swapsies)

The Swapsies hail from my native 'Lovelypool' (Liverpool) and are a four piece who play pop-folk-scouse-skiffle-lovely-great-just lovely music.

As you know I recently supported them at their EP launch in December, and they are a great bunch of people. 

Their EP 'Sparrows' was released on December 2nd and you can get it HERE.

The EP features brilliant harmonies and humorous lyrics, my favourite is 'Kisses Are Free' - a loveable love song which will instantly make you like them. 

There will definitely be more to come from The Swapsies. Like them on Facebook HERE for more info.

Happy New Year

A lot has happened this past month, apologies for not posting, I'm in complete holiday mode at the moment, my typing isn't what it used to be.. but I am back for an update and a wish of a very Happy New Year to everyone. 

I had my first support slot gig last month, a friend of mine from work back in Liverpool and my old recording teacher (and friend!) from college asked me to support their band at their EP launch gig. I was terrified but I jumped and did it; it gave me a kick up the arse, I wrote a new song within a week, which is a record as I usually write half a song a year.

The gig poster (with my name on!!!)

It went really well and I felt so comfortable, one of my resolutions in this new year is definitely to get out and play more.

I finished uni for christmas, I did my presentation for one of my modules, I've stressed over my essays (and still stressing!) but I made it to the end of a very good year. I've spent the past 3 weeks having the time of my life, I went to London for a last minute Christmas shopping trip with my boyfriend, I spent Christmas seeing my family and I got to spend some of it with my lovely boyfriend and his lovely family, and I got to spend New Years getting very drunk and playing guitar till 4am with them! 

I love the end of a year, its like finishing a good book, what will happen in the next? we'll see...
