Melodrama in the mundane.

Dave Oakes' Music Blog

Updates, retakes and high stakes.

Fuck.
It’s been a while since I’ve written on here!
WELL the last 6 months have been…well they have been…
It’s been a rush, a buzz, a soul crushing, re energising, heightened sense of living, utter dismay, utter joy, happiness, love, blood, head fucked and head fucking celebration of life.

So the music is about to begin, new set, re written songs, blown off the dust and given them a new shine. New and old faces will be joining me on stage for the first time all together or sometimes I’ll be going it alone! Both of which I’m overjoyed about. I love the electricity of being on stage with people, it’s why I enjoy acting so much.

The new e.p. is underway. Recorded with the wonderfully insane Al Jenkins, the man is an inspiration, and is one of those people who seems to know what you want without you having to vocalise it ( mainly because you can’t vocalise it because it’s been playing in your head but not realised by your vocal cords ).
It’s going to be a 4 song wonder, with a new song on it too.

Then there will be gigs, open mics , videos, busking…a whole summer
of music.

Fuck.Yeah.

My brain is melting into a small congealing mass of cerebal membrane right now so I’ll update with something more suitably witty soon.

All my love
