Six months have passed since my last update. Bad blogging behaviour. Though posting just for the sake of posting is equally bad behaviour, in my (not so humble) opinion.
The main reason for the lack of updates is my commuting to music college. Leaves little time for administration. Until now; we have started working in Uni on tour booking, press kit, marketing, etc.
Tour booking?! Yes. I’ll soon be on tour in Sweden with a band consisting of me and two or three other musicians from my class. Check Where’s Rut in the next few weeks for details.
Apart from the tour, I’ve got two gigs at JAK members bank with my classmate Miguel Ganzo booked. They are for members of the cooperative bank, so if you’re one of those, you can look forward to a couple of amazing gigs. (If not, you’ll have to wait for the tour. And if you’re a UK resident, you’ll have to wait a bit longer still. I’ll come over as soon as possible! I miss you and your friendly ways.)
I’m also writing a lot, as always. Writer’s block? Don’t know what that is. This leads to a luxury problem – I don’t know what to do with all the material and creativity. I’ve got a couple of co-writing projects going, which is good.
But, more importantly, I’m finally working on a proper studio project. I’ve got a brilliantly creative and innovative musician friend who has agreed to be my co-producer for the project. We’re working on arrangement and basic production ideas and are getting a band together for rehearsals soon.
Oh, and I’ve applied for the doctoral program at Gothenburg Uni. English lit. Sf and fantasy and sustainability and transition. I’ll write more about that soon.
