I’ve been very busy and very organised of late.
If you look to your right, you will notice some new dates up and locked in for gigs. Hoping that some of you reading this will consider coming along… even after all of the facebook and email flooding that will be received.
I have also uploaded some studio snaps taken with my iPhone to prove that I am actually recording an album and not lying about it… and uploaded more professional studio snaps (as in photography studio) which are completely attributed to the talents of Cindy at Live Photography. Seriously, she is amazing. Go to her website and check out her stuff. Now.
All of the Pics that you see on my facebook, bandcamp and main website front pages are taken by Cindy.
Check my Pictures section under “Media” to see these.
I also decided that I will be uploading 2 youtube videos a week. There have been 2 put up since my last post… I missed out on my 2 last week cause I had some freak flu and it is now Wednesday and I’ve got another full day in the studio. Lots of work to do still!
More gigs are yet to be confirmed and evented in Facebook.
Finally, do you like the new look? Kind of minimalist eh? All of my sites will be up to date soon enough.
It has been quite a while in between posts. For this, I am deeply sorry…
On the plus side, heaps of stuff has been going on.
We’ve finally rewritten my bio and put it up on the About page. No more ‘Needs Updating’. 😀
Over the past few weeks, Emma (manager) and I have been hard at working booking gigs near and far. Of those confirmed you can look right to the sidebar. There you will see a a gig at Hive Bar on the 28th from 7:30pm (this Thursday) and the 1st (Sunday) from 4pm, a gig at the Excelsior in Glebe this Saturday night 30th playing with Mirrors in Iceland, and a show at the UNSW Roundhouse in August. We’ve also been booking up into the festival scene. I’ll let you know how it goes. More gigs are still to be confirmed so I’ll keep you posted. (get it?)
I finished my prac at a highschool on friday, so now I’m busy practicing, writing, teaching and reading. Things are looking up. I love being busy, but on my own accord. 😉
On a positive note, I was featured in the Hills Shire Times this week. Here’s the clipping below:
So I’ve had this domain and webspace for just under a year and a half now with nothing coming out of it. I had an email with a fancy sounding address (@samnewtonmusic.com) but that is all… I wanted to do something with it but just couldn’t find the time/motivation.
A few days ago, I figured enough is enough. I found a nice looking template (courtesy FoxHound Studios) and put my photoshop skills to good use.
My hope is that this can be a homebase from which I can bring together all of my social networks, list all of my gigs, post blogs filled with wisdom and wonder, offer videos and pics and all other information about me and my music.
Also in the works is a mailing list which I’m hoping to get off the ground in the next few weeks.
Hope you enjoy!
P.S. website feedback is more than welcome.
