Last week, I sent out a bit of a signal for help - things were looking bad for this year's plans as work was falling through and time is ticking...and I've been overwhelmed by the show of support you good folks have offered me.
Donating tanks of petrol, buying tickets to shows that are already free, posters, books, albums and t-shirts - it looks like Radical You (vol.1) and it's tour are nearly funded and life has a little less pressure on it. In total, approximately £1300 was bought/donated.
It's a real life line. THANK YOU.
Weirdly, I've been so busy keeping up with it all/writing that I haven't actually found a new pair od shoes I like. I'll rectify that today, I hope. (Pics will follow)
T-Shirts have been made (see other post) and other pieces have been put in place to make sure the album comes out smoothly...although, I still have to write some of it.
Being this busy, traveling this much and producing this much doesn't lend itself to very much perspective on how things are going - after a while, doubt sets in about whether any of this is worth doing at all - setting off for a new gig can sometimes be full of excitement and plenty dread that it might not connect with the audience.
Thankfully, it does seem to connect - I've had some unbelievably heart-warming messages as a result of this and some wonderful hugs too. THANK YOU.
If you'd still like to contribute to this not so 'silly little life' - see below for THINGS:
WANNA BUY ME A DRINK? (£3.50)

drinks to ensure I get home safely. I could do
with it now! (NB: This is a theoretical drink
- I can't be getting loaded with this much to do)
