It’s been a busy start to the year. The deadline for my Bath Spa MMus Master’s Degree songwriting module submission passed on Friday 13th at 23:59…hopefully the essay and accompanying webcam presentation will at least get a pass after all that intensive work (edit 31/1: it did!). This module covered The History Of Song in the context of the influences on my own songwriting. I got everything in there from Flamenco, Jazz Standards, Bacharach, The Beatles, Springsteen, The Cars, Norah Jones through to Hannah Montana, Allstar Weekend, Jessie J and Katy Perry.
15th January saw the latest London Songwriters meetup go well at our new venue, The Freemasons Arms in Covent Garden. Next one is booked for the 12th Feb.
Was out and about last week, taking in a Ralph Murphy Masterclass at the ICMP, an ICMP Songwriter’s Circle at The North London Tavern and finally on Friday a City Showcase open mic at The Regal Room. Some particularly fine songwriting and performances at the latter!
Time to get down to some writing!
