We’ve just confirmed Roachford as our headline act for Sunday 5th October. What a great way to close the inaugural festival. The line-up is filling rapidly with a diverse range of talent. Full details are on the Hayfest artists page.
Hot on the heels of This Day In Country Music I’ve started work on a new festival which will take place this October in the beautiful Peak District village of Hayfield. I’m delighted to be on the small but highly motivated Hayfest organisers team; we’ve already got the brilliant Andy Fairweather Low signed up as…Continue reading Hayfest – a new music festival
I should really know better, after two years of working on the This Day In Music app. It’s now being checked over by people in the band’s organisation. Although this is a bit nerve-wracking for me, it’s a very necessary step and I was foolish to think it would be a quick process. Bearing in…Continue reading Or is it?
I’ve just downloaded and installed the first build of the latest This Day In Music app, research and content by yours truly. I’m really pleased with it and am looking forward to announcing it at last, some time in the next week or so.
All my This Day In Music material is in the process of being edited. It would be easy to get all precious and feel that the product of two years work is being savaged by an over-critical editor. However this is their product and actually the edit requests make sense. Also every signed off piece…Continue reading Editing and more editing
It looks like my patience is being rewarded at last. I’ve just had a call from the This Day In Music Apps guys, informing me that the band’s management team have given the ‘On This Day’ app and ‘Song By Song’ Kindle book the go-ahead as officially endorsed publications. The plan is to release them…Continue reading Official: It’s official!
Well, my ‘On This Day’ app and ‘Song By Song’ Kindle book still haven’t been released. Back at the beginning of the year, it looked as though any hope of my research and writing efforts being blessed with official recognition by the band on which they are focussed was lost. Discussions with the band’s management…Continue reading New Year launch delayed by eleven months
A big chunk of my contribution to the This Day In Music Apps range is due to be released as a Kindle book too! It looks like the ‘Song By Song’ album notes I wrote will be published before the app is released. Negotiations with the band’s management and lawyers are still on-going. I’m really…Continue reading Apps and Kindle books
After a year of research and writing (with time off to do my day job), I’ve finished the first complete draft of all the material for the ‘On This Day’ app I’ve been working on for This Day In Music Apps. They’ve just released This Day In Classic Rock in conjunction with Classic Rock magazine…Continue reading It’s proofreading time
Wow, having achieved official status for the This Day In Pink Floyd app, the This Day In Music team is now in negotiations to do a similar deal for the app I’m researching and writing. If this comes off, I’ll be absolutely bowled over; these guys are real heroes of mine and to have written…Continue reading This is the official app, or is it?
