I've had a few positive words from people when talking about the idea of this tour, with some fellow musicians offering some friendly advice on where to play in my local area, and Gigvine magazine (https://www.facebook.com/pages/GigVine/265593736816683?fref=ts) offering to advertise it on their Facebook page. I've listed all the villages and towns in the 'green circle', and am currently making a list of all the venues and open mic nights contained therein. Again, if anyone has any ideas for places for me to play, I'd love to hear them :)
I've also started using my mailing list again, sending out information about upcoming gigs and open mic nights as well as other news and stories. With my phone still playing up, This might just be the best way to stay up to date with all my open mic goings on outside of Facebook, so why not sign up today?
I'll post another update when I have some dates confirmed. For now, I'm planning on visiting some open mic nights this week to get back into the swing of it and to promote the tour. I'll keep posting them to Facebook when I decide where I'm going, so keep your eyes peeled over there.

I realise its been quite a while since I wrote a blog, but a day of productivity coupled with the return of my repaired phone from the network formerly known as t-mobile has inspired me.
So the main thing to talk about is my new tour plans! I'm calling it 'the 10th mile radius tour'. That may not sound very adventurous, but establishing a local fanbase is really important to independent musicians, and also very important to me.
I've included a map with this blog. Basically, I'll play at any venue that falls within the green circle! I'm open to suggestions for gigs, promoters and open mic nights, so get in touch however you can :) it would be great if I could play at least one show in each town in the green! (dont worry, I'm contacting people already!).
Finally, I'll have some new YouTube videos up later today. Check them out if you get 5.
See you soon,
