The Hours..
Current mood: sleep deprived
Category: sleep deprived Music

I'm writing this with the last few blips of conscious thought I can muster. I didn't arrive in my hotel room until 3 am Tuesday morning and had to be up at 6 am for a live T.V performance the same day. 3 hours sleep.

I can't believe we were able to even think let alone sing. But we did. The T.V show finished by 9 am, we had some breakfast and then it was on to an amazing boardroom performance at WPLJ in New York.
By the time I got to my hotel room in the afternoon it was 2pm and I tried to have a nap before the Borders New York in store.
It was 4pm when I finally drifted off.
6 pm when Myrna arrived at my hotel room.
6.30 pm when I was steaming my voice and trying to wake up.
7 pm on stage singing my heart out and meeting all of you lovely people.

Probably my favorite performance on this in store tour to date.

Right now I'm about to head off to bed.
It's 1 am Wednesday in New York and I'm planning on sleeping the day away so I can be fresh for the Canal Room show.

It's been so much work!
So much travel.
But you all make it sooo worth it.

Current mood: astounded
Category: astounded Music


I am going to tell the story I often tell - but it's true.
I was bloody sick. Like food poisoning sick.
And I'd sat in the bathtub under the hot shower with cramps for hours before the show in so much pain.

I must have eaten something - or shaken something that had a bug on it.
And it attacked my guts!

But the show - was f****** amazing.
Think about it - a full 90 minute show with nothing but a guitar and a voice.

We had a bit of a breakthrough.
We realized that we don't the bells and whistles.
We had a brotherhood.
We felt like a band.

I f****** love Steve Young.
I f****** love New York.

Breakfast orders and Miami Beach
Current mood: Humid
Category: Humid Music

I had the most wonderful, relaxing and fun time in New York on my days off.
I was staying at a hotel that shall remain nameless. Suffice to say it was very cool looking but had THE WORST customer service ever. But let me get back to that..
On the positive vibe, on my days off I..
*stayed up late every night and slept in late every day
*saw two movies
*got a facial
*spent gorgeous quality time and thanksgiving with Myrna (love you!)
*walked a lot
*didn't buy a thing
*drank lots of coffee
*adored how cold it was

Now on to THAT hotel.. let me give you an example of the service.

I ring room service at 11.30 am on morning.
Me: Hello, I realize it's probably too late to order breakfast food

Ode to a friend
Current mood: Lucky
Category: Lucky MySpace

Wave of exhaustion and then a tide of sleep.
A day completely alone in New York.
A movie - the follow up to Donnie Darko was nowhere near.
A scab removed and some hurt inside.
A sleep in.
A breakfast with Steve and Ann.
A dinner with Myrna and Franz.
My new second favorite New Yorker.
A feeling that everything is gonna be alright.

This week she flew to Chicago to see me
Tonight she paid for dinner
No one ever pays for dinner
But she did

"Why I'm standing on a cloud
Every time you're around
And the sadness disappears
Every time you are near
You must be an Angel
I can see it in your eyes
Full of wonder and surprise
And just now I realize

You're an Angel
You must be an Angel

Now I believe that dreams come true
Because you came when I wished for you
This just can't be coincidence
The only way that this makes sense is that
You're an Angel" Madonna and Steven Bray

BORDERLINE..feels like I"m going to lose my mind!
Category: Music

The instore at Borderline Music in Chicago last night was the sweetest thing.
The owner Scott is a huge supporter and we went out of our way to make sure we included this incredible independent store in our schedule when we came back to Chicago this time.

Folks had been lining up for hours in the cold (and rain!) before we got there.. and they gave us the most genunine and sincere reception.

We were only supposed to play some bsides off a cd and do a question and answer.. but Steve and I really wanted to reward these people with something special so we ended up performing a 6 song set.

There were so many people in the store and spilling out on to the street that I had to stand on a stool for everyone to see me. Steve kept his cool remarkably well considering I kept throwing him curve balls and requests for songs he'd only learned the day of the show (well..20 mins before!).

Afterwards we went out to a restaurant and ended up in a local bar and had a blast.
I'm so excited that I've got 4 days off in New York now.. I think you can all tell I really need it!

Sending you all love..
and big squeezy hugs!

blink and blur
Current mood: productive
Category: Music

This is all going by in such a blur and yet it's also in slow motion. It feels like months since we were in L.A and yet I look down at the schedule each day and think 'I can't get through this!' and somehow we reach the end of the day and it was a joy.

Take this morning for example.
We had to get up at 4.45am to leave for the T.V studio to perform on morning T.V.
Which meant bed by 9pm the night before (ha! there was no way...)
Which meant tossing and turning until 2 am.
No sleep.
Not really.
Then up and singing at the god awful hour of 6 ish with a crew of lovely people and suddenly it was 8.30am and time to head over to Mad Cow's rado show.
Then it was 11 am and we had an hour off before the Borders instore in Chicago.

5 songs, 2 hours of signing.
So many smiling faces and the kindest staff and passers by.
Then it was 3pm and I was shattered.

Some emails
Some food.
Titanic on the t.v.
Time for bed.


Thank goodness for Brad Taylor my publicist and the charming Steve Young on guitars. They're making this so much fun. My dear friend and photog Myrna flew in from New York to be with me this weekend and it was a load of fun. She brings cuddles for the boys and someone to pick on for me (in a good way!).

Right.. this has to be the most boring blog ever.. delerium!
I'll call it a night..

Still Beautiful
Category: Music

Woke up in Little Rock.
Sang for some folks in radio.
Flew to Memphis.
Watched a storm from the the departure gates.
Flew to St Louis.
Now I'm getting ready for bed.
Life is still beautiful.

Little Rock little boy big world
Current mood: contemplative
Category: Music

I was in Phoenix Arizona this morning.
I was in Dallas Texas at 10 am.
I'm in Little Rock Arkansas tonight.
I'll be in St Louis tomorrow.
I'll be Chicago tomorrow night.

It's busy.

When I'm this busy I think a lot about the human condition.
Why and How questions.
I think a lot about what really matters.
About the passage of time.

I was so tired this morning I could barely get out of bed.
I watched the most beautiful sunset at the airport in Dallas and smiled warmly at the man who brought my room service up tonight.
For the record I had Salmon and vegetables.
I often ask for a glass of milk.
It makes me feel like home. Читать дальше »

Current mood: ehausted!
Category: ehausted! Music

It's such a crazy schedule and I don't know how I find the energy to do this except for you guys. So many people turned up to the Phoenix instore - it blew me away. Some had been waiting for 7 years to see me sing live - others had driven 8 hours to shake my hand.

This morning was ROUGH. We had arrived at 12 midnight from L.A after our flight was delayed by 5 hours. We had to get up at 5 to be on morning television at 7 and then we had our instore tonight. Tomorrow I'm up at 5 again to fly to Dallas for radio promotion and then on to who knows where after that. I'm trying to keep my head down and focus on the work ahead but seeing all of these smiling faces makes it all so worth it.

I'm so lucky to have this connection to you guys.
Don't ever doubt it.

Objects of my affection
Current mood: reminiscent
Category: reminiscent Music

Random thoughts.

I sat down to get a haircut today and the hairdresser asked immediately.. 'What do you do?'. I was perplexed and said 'I, err, make music I guess'. Suddenly his eyes lit up and he was playing the fame game. 'Are you someone famous?' he asked. I sighed. He continued..'Forgive me, I don't keep up with the charts'. Clearly he did. I found myself at a crossroads. Do I dutifully explain my life's work or simply shrug it off? Did it matter if he knew who I was or what I did? I stopped the line of questioning by saying 'I could be, but probably not.. Where are you FROM?'.

He was from San Lous Obispo.
I told him I was from London.
Via San Francisco.
Via New York.
Via Brisbane.

Are we just what we 'do'?
I hope to be more than what I do.
