This is me, base-touching after the holidays to see how everyone is and to tell you in no uncertain terms how I am. And those terms are: 'pretty good' and 'cheers for asking'.
Thanks to anyone who listened to or bought The Motives Records since its release in September, or said something kind about it online or to my face or somebody else’s. That upstairs image is related, as Miks from Australian music blog MAAMF listed the record as one of his top 10 Australian albums of the year. This was such a nice surprise and not the worst way to end ‘14.
Because they weren't the greatest 12 months of all time I was a little relieved to see the back of them. But the upshot is that I’ve made some secret promises to myself about what I want to achieve this year, and so far, a month after these resolutions, I’m still holding myself to them. It means a bunch of new songs and projects, but more significantly (for me, at least) it means some adjustments to lifestyle and my relationship to music making. And so I’m having fun again, and should have new songs for you to hear before too long. Thanks for listening, as always.
