22nd December 2011


Well, who'd have thought that by the end of this year I'd be paid for performing? Or that I'd have couples dancing in front of me as I sang? That I'd be asked "Who did that song originally?" or "Is that really one of yours?" Remarkable really. Shards of hope that you can only see when the light catches them just so. Shards that could slash my hands as I grasp them and yet make me feel so good you couldn't possibly imagine.

Who knows where this adventure is going to lead? I don't know. I do know that the forthcoming year has to be different to the last. I'm also certain that I want to thank you for your support this year, as ever it is always appreciated.

I wish you an enjoyable and safe festive period.

With Very Best Wishes,

Joanne Kelly / Strawberry Sundae Radio Show

Reading DJ Joanne wrote a very nice review of a gig I did in 2012 and has played Something Wild quite a few times on her Strawberry Sunday Radio show. Later in the year I had a great interview with her which can be found here, the success of which I think was largely due to the obvious background work she did in preparation for the interview.

Understandably I'm biased because Joanne has been so favourable but I do think she does a great show if you like indie rock, hearing about upcoming bands and a lot more more besides. Strawberry Sundae is on every Sunday at 7pm for two hours. More details can be found here.
