Howdy y'all.....thanks for such a lovely and warm welcome back. You are all far too kind, but it's lovely to hear from you.
Yes, been a busy time, but no more so than many others have been no doubt so it's nice to get back to a bit of normality, which absolutely includes staying in touch with the wonderful Chordians.
Sounds like there have been some jams and gatherings going on. They sound fantastic.....maybe I'll manage to get myself involved in one at some point.
As for me, well, married life is fantastic thus far. Long may it continue, but I'm loving it.
Things with the band are good. We were gigging this weekend on Friday night, supporting two wonderful bands and marking a real step up in levels for us. We were on the bill with 5th and Pontiac and also the superb King King (ft Alan Nimmo). Well worth checking both bands out.
I'm still writing and playing my own music, with the difference being that a lot of these songs end up in the mix with the band, which is great. I'll share in the right forum in due course but if anyone wants a listen of what I've been up to in the meantime, I've just made a soundcloud page at: http://www.soundcloud.com/mdr1977 and our band page is at: http://www.soundcloud.com/thecore-1
Anyway, thank you for being so welcoming as ever. I have genuinely missed spending much time on this site lately so it feels very nice to be back and I look forward to boring you all further in the very near future
