I know Ive been SUPER tight lipped about my new material as ‘Jovel’, even to the point where I havent publicly announced any shows and instead done a few ‘if you’re there then you’re there’ kind of apperances, but thats all coming to an end very very soon.

 

I cant go into to much detail (some of it I still dont know myself, But I have been confirmed to play Glastonbury this year! Still not sure what day or stage, but I do know that George Ezra and a few others are on the same stage as me!

 

Im really looking forward to present this new sound to you all, and I cant wait to hear what you all think, Its quite a massive journey from anything Ive even thought of doing before!

 

Ill keep y’all updated!

10635750_1486343074941683_8975830631198734810_nSo last wednesday I had my third ‘tester’ show and FINALLY it went the way I wanted to in my mind. My new live show is still in its early stages, but all the new elements are finally working together a lot more seamlessly and the response from the audience was AMAZING.

A massive thank you to everyone that came to support the event (especially the two lads that drove all the way from cornwall just to see me play) to chris for having me, and a massive thank you to everyone that came up to me afterwards to say they enjoyed the show, really gave my confidence a boost.

Cannot WAIT for my next set of shows now. I’ll keep you posted! 

My First Live Show @ The Silver Bullet

My First Live Show @ The Silver Bullet

On The 20th Of June I played My first ever live set for the Jovel project @ the Silver Bullet.  I was surprising more nervous than any of my other previous shows as random impulse, but for good reason: instead of being backed by my band, this new project is just me, by myself, alone, and that means one teeny mistake and its ALL on you. secondly its with an acoustic, which I am completely new to using (I even first learned guitar on an electric) and thirdly: these songs have singing elements to them, and with the only backing ive got to go by being and a single acoustic guitar, i was BRICKING it.

 

Despite all that though show went pretty good and the crowd seemed to really enjoy it, One person so much he asked me to sign his head!

So all in all it was a great way to shake off the ‘first gig’ nerves. On to the next one!

Not Too shabby right? The second and probably main reason on why Ive been away for so long Is actually music related. Ive been working on a ton of new material, but as well as just trying to write great songs, I really wanted to craft a sound. something really unique and that acted like a musical representation of who I am as a person… It sounds a lot deeper than it actually is, but it took a while and couldnt really be rushed, but you’ll be hearing it all at full pelt from september onwards!

 

the next few things Im gonna be posting up are just  things ive done during these four months, but I havent thrown up (gigs, vids etc) & After Ive Got all that out of the way, I’ll be back to my daily blogging glory!
