I’m currently in the process of a lot of things in my life changing, and for months I’ve been writing in a private journal app but I seem to be rather useless at keeping up with it or getting it to make any sense.
I’ve realised in the past year that I don’t enjoy posting every aspect of my life on the internet, because there are a lot of things not to like. Despite that I do want a way of documenting a new project I’m doing so I’m turning this blog into a space for that.
I’m in the process of starting a new music project. This will be my 3rd one that I’m being a part of creating from the ground and will mark my 10th year being in an out of bands.
Halcyon - 2004-2006 (Bass)
I Alexander - 2006-2007 (Bass Session Work)
This City Sleeps - 2007-2010 (Vocals)

The Winston Churchill Collective - 2013 - Present
Hearts & Souls - 2010-2014 (Bass/Vocals)
New Project 2014 - Onwards
I guess if I’m being honest with myself this might be my last ‘band’ project I get into. I love being in a band more then anything else, but the stress, industry, and financial strains really do get in the way of enjoying it sometimes, no matter how hard you try to block that part out.
I think I’ve realised in the past couple of years why small bands I love break up. I think the in the last couple of years I’ve really felt that strain and desperation to drive it somewhere, only to get little recognition or opportunities to progress.
This isn’t a complaint, and it’s also not me giving up music, it’s just the realisation that at 23 I can’t be in and out of bands forever.
