It's time to sleep in sound. Get 'Sound' advice and tips on all things musical.
My new blog - sleeping in sound is live and well via blogger.
In other news, I just ordered an Ibanez SR605 so expect to see some live videos on Youtube and Instagram.

A blog for musicians?
Can such a thing exist?
I'm sure it already does in many different formats but I've started my own blog offering advice, tips, techniques, networking assistance and much much more.
Forget lengthy blogs with zero information. Forget blogs that promise quick and easy success methods. This blog is designed for musicians who want assistance or advice on various subjects and topics that can help in their every day life as a musician or with their potential career in the music industry.
Quick and simple but filled with loads of information that's suitable for musicians. Learn how to market yourself while avoiding common mistakes. Don't waste your valuable time.
Sleeping in Sound is all you need to help your musical side sleep at night.
2015 has been a very up and down year. I've seen and done so much - luckily its been more good than bad.
I managed to gig with The Osmonds, which was just incredible and I'm so thankful that I got the opportunity and didn't waste it. It was quite stressful but great practice in the grand scheme of things.
The business I co-own has gone from strength to strength this year and I'm grateful to the team of people we have working with us. It's been a long and hard path but it's all worth it when you know people and students value your services and knowledge. The Christmas solely from my students was just overwhelming.
I got myself featured on David Young and The Midnight Chorus' new album playing Bass Guitar for the entire album. I also supported the amazing Sex Pissed Dolls at The River Rooms in Stourbridge.
Finally a massive thank you to The Smooth Criminals as it's been a massive honour to play with some of the best and kind musicians around. All the weddings, birthdays, conferences and parties have been so much fun and it's kept my gigging calendar full all year.
This weekend (7 & 8 November) TMM Academy (Teach Me Music) is having a FREE Taster session event. All instruments are covered, so any new and potential students can come down to our Academy in Kidderminster and have a FREE 30 minute session.
Drums, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Piano, Music theory, Music production, and Vocals/Singing
If you wish to rebook then we can discuss this during and after the free session, so no need to worry about the finer details just yet.
No instruments required as we have all the equipment set up in our Academy ready.
Just get in touch with myself or via the TMM website www.teachmemusic.academy and get yourself booked in NOW.
OFFICIAL EVENT ON FACEBOOK
David Young and The Midnight Chorus are headlining a show in Wednesbury in November. Its going to be an amazing night of music so please visit the Official Facebook Event page and RSVP if you're coming.
We'd love to see as many people as possible so we can turn it into one big hangout with friends, fellow musicians and good people.
Just a few photos from our album recording sessions and one of the last gigs we did together. We recently supported Jo Harman at The Robin 2 in Bilston and that was a great gig, lets make this headline show even better.
Album release date and further details/single release coming soon.
I had the Teach Me Music Academy all to myself for most of the day today. We had tutors coming in later in the evening to teach but I had my own private practice space. Although I wouldn't say with any confidence that I can play Keyboard or Drums but I had some practice behind the kit and ivories.
Of course I took a selfie as well. Who wouldn't
Teach Me Music became one with the Kidderminster crowds today at the market. Every Thursday Kidderminster has a giant market and this week, TMM had a stall to advertise, promote and spread the word of our academy and business. It was amazing and we thank everyone that was involved and everyone that came to talk to us during the day.
Yesterday Myself and the Guitar tutor (Alex) from Teach Me Music went on a musical adventure to PMT in Birmingham. We brought some music equipment obviously so have a look at the new additions to our collection.
It always seems that gigging brings out my bass face and creative body shapes. Just have a look at some of these. Definitely interesting to say the least. All of the photos below are taken from gigs with The Smooth Criminals
I've been in the newspapers several times for various different reasons so it's time to add to the collection. I've been in the papers for my association with the Roland Academy Roadshows, for performing at a charity event for Daisy Mae (which was shown on BBC midlands news) and now I'm in the Express and Star for Teach Me Music (a music academy in Kidderminster, which a friend and myself run).
