NEWS: Human Imperfections EP now available on Bandcamp and Soundcloud

It’s been tough but I’ve decided that I’m happy enough with Human Imperfections that I would like for you all to take a listen. It’s also available for FREE.

The idea behind this EP for me was to give you an idea of me as a drummer, for those who haven’t seen me play live, I play live acoustic drums alongside anything I’ve released, this is my way of giving you an idea of what that can be like live.

So enjoy…

NEWS: Delay on Human Imperfections EP/Future Shows

Hi all,

So this is a personal note coming directly from yours truly.

I had my EP Release show at Gwdihw in Cardiff this Wednesday gone, and it was amazing. Great to see so many friendly faces there, and more so faces I didn’t recognise that had come especially to see the show. Thank you to all that came.

If you were there, you will have heard my small speech explaining the following…

As you all know Human Imperfections was due to be released today, but unfortunately due to health issues that have cropped up over the past weeks I have been unable to put the final touches on the EP to an extent that I am happy with.

I didn’t want to release an unfinished EP for the sake of a release date, and would prefer that you hear it when it’s ready and polished. The delay shouldn’t be that long (perhaps another week or two), but I hope you understand.

I also had issues with parts of the CD packaging not arriving on time, which also hasn’t helped, but those parts have now been delivered so they’re ready to be pressed packed and sent if you would like to order any.

Thank you all for your understanding…

On a positive note, I’ve been invited down to Bristol to support Pitch Black in March at The Attic Bar. I’ll be posting updates on this soon.

THIS WEEK: New 5th Spear EP Release

News: January – Happy New Year

It’s the 1st January 2017, so it’s time for a fresh start, time to turn over a new leaf, time to make new year resolutions, and of course time to crack on with all of the new ideas.

I’m hoping to start this year on the right foot, and this requires some thought and planning. We all feel obligated to do this in some shape or form as it provides an aims for our achievements.

Last month I posted four blogs on Planning Creativity, and through writing these I have essentially made my plans for the year, and have other ideas ready to be planned.

I would like to let you know of a few things happening this Month…

Human Imperfections EP – 27/01/2017

NEW RELEASE – On Friday 27th January 2017 I’ll be releasing my new EP ‘Human Imperfections’. Since performing the live show alongside Matthew Creed (Jammy Custard), I’ve developed a new found love of playing drums, and this EP is about just that. It’s the first time my drums (often only heard live) will be featured on a record, so I decided to take a step back from the electronic sound a little and just play. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. If you would like to hear it first, keep reading, else you will be able to purchase it on my Bandcamp page, and listen to it on Spotify etc…

I’ll be introducing the idea of what can stop us from being creative, and the hard/awkward decisions we’re made to make in order to compensate. This is a subject close to my heart as it’s been a constant struggle for me, so please read, comment, and talk to me. I’d like to hear how you deal with the battle yourself.

Future Plans – I have two more releases lined up later in the year and more blogs, so keep your eyes and ears open for news and updates, it’s best to follow me on Twitter or Facebook for more frequent updates @5thspear and Instagram for giggles

Playlist: All My Friends 2016

All My Friends is a great night run at Gwdihw in Cardiff by events organiser Lloyd Griffiths. They’ve been a great support to me over the past couple of years, and often invite me back to play in their awesome venue alongside a mixture of electronic and punk acts.

They’ve put together a Spotify playlist which I’m proud to be a part of, and featuring some of the great acts they’ve had on over the past year, so check it out below. Certainly worth a listen

“2016 has been very fun. It is genuinely exciting to look back on and see the list of ace headliners and more importantly brilliant shows, so thanks to everyone who’s supported great live music at our shows this year. Listen to what our 2016 sounded like with help from the likes of Titus Andronicus, BRAIDS, ALMA, Yama Warashi, Gallops, worriedaboutsatan, 5th Spear, Chorusgirl & many more!” All My Friends
