Thunder and Lightning 15 Jan 2017

happy sunday everyone 🙂
hope you’re having a lovely day wherever you are !!
its so nice to be back in NEW ZEALAND . i really do love this place and i’m so looking forward to playing at The Civicin AUCKLAND on tuesday and then at Opera House in WELLINGTON the following night ! both are very nearly sold out so grab your tickets from http://passengermusic.com/live/ if you fancy coming down …. these will be the first shows with the brilliant The Paper Kites as our special guests and i can’t wait to have them with us!!
also , here is a little video that we made today …..
some of you may know that we recorded a lot of my latest album here in auckland at an amazing place called Roundhead Studios New Zealand . its one of my favourite places in the world to make music and as i have a couple of days off here i decided at the last minute to go in and record a bunch of songs . they’re mainly little ideas that i’ve been working on over the last six months or so and i just wanted to get them down as rough demos .
i then thought that maybe this could be a nice twist on the “sunday night videos” . the band and i had so much fun recording cover songs as we traveled through europe last year and we might well do it again at some point , but for now ( if you guys are up for it ) instead of a cover every week i’ll pop one of these demos up instead ? they are just me and a guitar and they might be a bit rough round the edges , but i really like the idea of not holding them back and giving you guys a listen at this early stage …..
so here is the first one . its called “thunder and lightning” and its only about a minute and a half long but i think there’s something nice about it ….
please (and i know i say this every time …. sorry) but please if you feel like sharing it with your friends we would be hugely grateful .
massive thanks to Jarrad Seng Photography , chris vallejo , scooter , paddy and everyone at roundhead .
hope you like it .
