Howdy doody!

 It seems like every time I start writing a personal blog it begins with “it's been too long” and it's always the case. I go through phases of wanting to share on here and wanting to keep it all in my paper diaries, but, for today I felt like it. I kind of went blog-crazy for a while and ended up with about seven of the damn things but I've finally wittled it down to two. One for work and one for play. I've had this blog for years and I just love having that space to share thoughts and ideas that just don't fit into my work stuff so here I am again, prattling on!

The biggest news recently is that my new album is finished! It is my latest offering and I hope all of those who find it love listening to it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Ray and I have worked hard over the last 20 months to pull this together. I can honestly say I think I drove Ray nuts and he has learned to decipher what I mean when I say I want a “doof” sound on the drums and the icing on the cake is that he hasn't killed me in the process. Creating another album with him has just been an awesome process and I'm so happy with what we have come out with. As you have probably noticed I haven't gigged in over a year. I just don't really see the point of it for now, there just aren't enough bums in seats for me to warrant lugging my drums and kit all over the country. I might gig again but I'm just not feeling it for now.

I've not been doing much art BUT I have been doing a lot of writing. My creative books are coming together slowly and I hope to have one or two of them done by the end of this year. I'll keep you posted on how it all takes shape. For this week I am off to Dublin to celebrate my four year anniversary with my boyfriend and I am looking forward to proper relaxation and to have a good nose at new things and just generally do holiday stuff. It's only a small get away but we are both desperate for it! I'll post some pictures when I get back!

Well I think that's a good small catch up! Enjoy the new album and I shall speak to you soon!

Big Love

Ryan James
