This week has been full of ups and downs! I had a great gig, a really lovely interview feature and met the lovely Sophie Smith for some YouTube collaborations….. but I lost my USB stick with the project files for my track Alive on it! That was a massive disappointment and has put me many steps back in finishing the track!
Monday: Most of my day was taken up with rehearsals, both with my guitarist, George, and the band I play with, Inhale! Whilst I really enjoyed the rehearsals, I was very glad to stop singing after 8 hours!
Tuesday: I wasn’t actually feeling well at all on Tuesday and was worried I was losing my voice, so I took it very easy! I did a bit of writing for the next track I’m hopefully going to produce myself and just generally tried to relax!
Wednesday: Due to being worried about my voice I didn’t want to record a Wednesday Cover this week, but don’t worry as I’ve already recorded next week’s and it is a great one! I was actually playing in a team golf competition on Wednesday, which was really fun and topped off by the fact we won the prize for ‘Best Ladies Team’! I also won two of the raffle prizes, which was very exciting for me as I usually have terrible luck!
Thursday: No Thursday Twenty playlist this week as I was too busy with sound check and gigs! Next week it will be back though, I promise!
My gig was at the Imperial War Museum in Manchester, which was such a unique and cool place to perform. It was with Inhale at the MPAN Ball, which was Alice and Wonderland themed, so the venue looked amazing! It was good to be back onstage after a few quiet weeks!
Friday: On Friday I went back into college to work on the final master for Alive, only to find that I had lost my USB stick with all the files on and that we didn’t have recent backups on the studio computer! It was a little bit heart-breaking actually! Now I’m going to have to re-import the vocals into the Logic file and do the mix all over again and then re-master the track when it’s done! So much extra effort unfortunately, when I was so close to being finished!
However, I was interviewed by the lovely She Makes Music blog so that was a silver lining! Check it out!
Saturday: Collaboration time! I recorded two covers with the lovely Sophie Smith for our YouTube channels 🙂 It was the first time we’d met and we worked really well together! We did Passionfruit by Drake and Strangers by Halsey and Lauren Jauregui. The Passionfruit cover is already up on Sophie’s channel and I’ll be posting a snippet to it for the coming week’s Wednesday Cover on my channel. Keep your eyes peeled for that and the Halsey cover too!
Sunday: The perfect day for getting outside and going for a hike with one of my best friends, Sophie (different one). Really great to get some fresh air and have a girly catch up!
I know it was a shorter post this week (probably a welcome change) but thank you for reading all the same! 🙂
