Small victories are the best
I’d just like to share a personal victory. I’ve been trying really hard to write songs lately. Not just the occasional riff or chord sequence, but fully formed pop songs with melody and lyrics. The lyrical part of songwriting has always been particularly challenging to me. I suppose this is due in part to my role as an instrumentalist: when I listen to a song, the parts that usually stay with...

Perfecting my (studio) tan
(Photo: Matt Money) For the past two weeks, I have mostly been holed up inside a dark, windowless room, doing repetitive tasks and eating unhealthy food. Sound familiar? If you’re a musician, it can mean only one of two things: agoraphobia rehearsing or recording. For me, it was all rehearsals. Two weeks. As luck would have it, the infamous British Summer flickered into life during this...
