My crazy lockdown year.

What a year... what an absolute sh*t of a year. Little did we know as we celebrated the arrival of 2020 what lay ahead. I can honestly say it's been a year like no other, the likes of which we will hopefully never repeat.

As a musician, the year, beyond mid-march, has been a total write-off for performing live. I'm not alone, there are many hundreds of thousands in the live performance and hospitality sector that have had their livelihoods unceremoniously stripped from them. We can only hope that 2021 brings some better times.

So, there's no long missive about all of the great things that have happened this year. Instead I've produced a 40 minute video '2020 - Life from the Lockdown Studio' which is an eclectic mix of music projects I've been involved with since the first lockdown was announced on the 23rd March 2020. My cobbled together home studio has been the one constant in my musical life that has kept me both creative and sane. Thanks to everyone that has collaborated with me over the year. It's been a blast - a chink of light and hope in an otherwise baron landscape for live music.

I hope you enjoy it. Stay safe and let's all hope for healthy, happy and prosperous 2021. Hopefully we'll meet out on the road again!
