Hi, Billy here.
Betty and I have been back from our South Island sojourn for a wee while now. Back to life, back to reality. Strange how easy being on tour is, especially when the company is good and the logistics go off without a hitch. It’s quite addictive really, however we’re happy being home too.
Our diary has a smattering of shows lined up for the remainder of the year including the Nelson Arts Festival which will be a highlight for sure. But we’re musing on what the future holds. Ideally we need a month or two off to write some new songs, which doesn’t look likely at this stage so we’ll continue to write when we can; in the cracks of time that appear in our hectic schedules. Although the couple of new songs we’ve been labouring over in the last week or two are starting to sound very nice indeed. Plus we’re hoping to apply for a grant that could see us holed up in cabin for six weeks in 2010 – which would be blissful!
So, hang in there everyone. This bitter New Zealand winter is drawing to a close, the grey warbler in my neighbour’s garden is telling me so. And we’ll be ready for spring with our own fresh bird song and the promise of more good times.
We’ve got a couple of exciting things up our sleeves.
Don’t play cards with the Teacaddies!
Stay tuned. x
