Recording again this week….

Recording again this week….  Should get a long EP or a short album out of the two 2 day slots this month, and I’m hoping for a couple of Xmas tunes too.  Well, it is summer after all.

Will try to get some rough cuts up for streaming soon. I’m pretty pleased with the 4 tracks nailed a couple of weeks ago 🙂

Nice solo outing in Hexham this Friday night too – 31st July at Mr Ants on Priestpopple in Hexham.  See you there?

It’s July so……

….time to record some new material up at Ally Lee’s Mill Studios in beautiful Alnwick, Northumberland.


I’m not sure what’ll come out of it, but I’m planning a handful of tracks and some Christmas tunes because I fancy a Christmas EP this year #BX34XMASNO1 ;).  If I get enough together for another album too that’ll be great, but let’s see (time for BX3?).  Might have to revisit a number from Trigger Finger (never thought I nailed Bruce Richard Reynolds) and maybe a solo version of a number from The Bandits’ sets.  Must throw in some CBG and slide too, as usual.  Only got 4 days planned so let’s see how it goes 😉

Apart from that, on the road solo as BBB and Ma Kelly’s Boys are laying down the retro boogie too – check the dates page.  The Bandits will be back in September.  Thx for your support.
