Album update

11:59 am in Uncategorized by Lou Hickey

Not the best of updates, but a lot of people have been asking about the album progress.

Things have had a major set back.
I have left my management and basically have no idea at this moment in time of what is happening.
I’m hoping to still use some sort of Crowd Funding towards the release, but this is very time consuming, and time is something which is something I don’t have a lot of right now, as Im taking all the work I can get right now to just get by. And I’m getting married in a few weeks!

I am going to do everything I can to get the album out before the end of the year.

The lesson to be learned here is its better to just do everything yourself! Then at least you know its getting done!

I am so sorry

Scottish New Music Awards

2:32 pm in Uncategorized by Lou Hickey

Hi all!

I hope you are all well and enjoying better Summer weather than we are here in Glasgow!

I am incredibly flattered to have been nominated for TWO Scottish New Music Awards.

I am up for Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year, and its a public vote which makes it even more exciting!

You can vote here

You don’t have to vote in every category.

I am hoping to have some news soon on when we are launching the Pledge Campaign for the album release.

As its the summer, things have slowed down with everyone being away on holiday (except me of course!). We are aiming for a November release and hopefully all will go to plan :)

Love

Lou

Hello!!!!

5:28 pm in Uncategorized by Lou Hickey

Hi Folks

It’s been a while! Apologies for the silence. Truth be told, I forgot I had a website! Ooops!

Things have been pretty quiet on the music front. I guess I needed to take a little step back. The past 3 years have been pretty crazy, and its been nice doing normal stuff, like spending time with family and friends, decorating my flat, and hanging out with my pet bunny rabbit Pes. I’m also getting married in September, so there have been lots of things to organise for that!

Its been hard getting the energy together to keep going. The Music Industry is tough! I just want to write songs and play gigs, but unfortunately its not that simple, and sometimes it is hard to keep going.

After a little break though, I am ready.

The album is finished and we are just looking into how we are going to release it. We also hope to do some dates in the UK before the end of the year.

Thank you for the messages of support. Its what keeps me going with all of this.

I do feel bad though when people ask us to play shows near them. Unfortunately we have no budget for any form of touring right now. Hopefully that will change. I’m really trying to make that change.

I hope you’re all well.

I promise to try and keep this more up to date!

Hello
Thank you again to everyone that’s made it down to my shows the past two weeks. Myself and the band had a ball!
I hope you are all enjoying the new E.P. Its been amazing hearing ‘Minutes, hours, days’ on the radio!

A little while ago I bought myself a Ukelele, called Marilyn. Maybe one day I’ll play it at a show, but for now, here’s a little video to show you how I’ve been progressing.
Thanks to Thane Shubly for making this.

‘Minutes, hours, days’ E.P. release and gig news

12:35 pm in Uncategorized, featured by admin

Hi! It has been a busy few weeks, so I apologies for the last minuteness of this blog!

The ‘Minutes, hours, days’ E.P. is being released on Monday 4th July 2011. This is a digital release only (i.e. i-tunes, amazon downloads). There will be no physical CD to purchase.
As the album release is still a little while off, I wanted to get something new out there asap and this was the best way to do it.
It was a really hard deciding what song went on the E.P. but I have gone with these four tracks – ‘Minutes, hours, days’, ‘Zombie Love’, ‘You!’ and ‘Tap Dance’.

To celebrate the release there will be a headline show at the O2 ABC2 in Glasgow on Sunday 3rd July.
Tickets are £7 and they are available through the O2 ABC Boxoffice, www.ticketweb.co.uk and Ticket Scotland Glasgow.
Support comes from Jonathan Carr and Scott Beaton.

I will also be playing a very late night set at Edinburgh’s famous Jazz Bar on Saturday 9th July. I should be on stage around 12.30am!

It would be great to see some friendly faces there!
