(Not) Blowing My Own Trumpet

Blowing My Own Trumpet - 'Just Songs' blog from Think of a Song Productions

Whilst I’m not averse to banging drums, strumming guitars, bashing keys or tooting a flute; believe it or not, I don’t enjoy blowing my own trumpet. So, it’s fortunate I have others to do that for me…

Keen to Share

What I really love is: writing songs, composing music, improvising with other musicians, collaborating with artists in different mediums and developing ideas for challenging new shows. What I don’t particularly relish – and this may come as a surprise – is having to shout about it all.

Yet, shout I must. Otherwise, you won’t know I’ve done any of the other stuff and it will remain my own little secret. And I really am keen to share what I’ve created with you. Especially since others seem to have enjoyed it so much.

Take a Look

I was recently asked to create a press release. This was sent out to local media outlets, who – with one notable exception (thank you VisitBath) – largely ignored it.  But the exercise wasn’t a waste of time. It made me go back and look up all the nice things people have said about my past shows.

Here’s a selection for you:
