My friend and I recently had the opportunity to play at Eynsham Folk Festival. So, we naturally did a George Ezra cover! (amidst other things) It was lovely to be a part of this wonderful event, thank you to everyone that was there.
This is our cover of Over The Creek by George Ezra, enjoy.
This is a cover of Over The Creek by George Ezra. I recently recorded this with my good friend Becky who also very kindly did the harmonies! I sincerely love this song as I appreciate the sentiment; it holds a special place in my heart!
So it has been brought to my attention that a year ago this past week, I was in Nashville, Tennessee. Although it was a year ago, there has not been a day that I haven’t thought about!
The experience of going to Nashville is one I will treasure for a long, long time. The people I met were so lovely and inspiring and I don’t think they know it; the people that will effect you may be the ones you’d never even thought of! For example, one of my fondest memories from going to Nashville was when I was Margaritaville with my Dad. The bartender there was so lovely and made a conscious effort to speak to me about my music, when Nashville is full to the brim with budding, young artists. To him, it may just have seemed like a nicety and nothing much to think about, however to me, it was genuinely a treasured moment to realise that someone might actually care and be interested in me and my music.
Another experience I will never forget is the night we had a backstage tour of the Opry. Whilst I am not sure how significant a thing country music is to my Dad, he let me simply soak everything in and didn’t say a thing as I wandered around starry eyed and completely immersed in the legacies of that beautiful place. The Grand Ole Opry has a beautiful, ethereal atmosphere that I can only hope I will experience again someday.
In reflection of that wonderful, dream like experience, I would like to thank everybody involved. My Dad, for taking me, my Mum and sister for listening to my endless babbling about it and last, but most certainly not least, everybody I met there; you may not remember me but I will always remember you. Thank you!
Well, my lovely sister very kindly nominated me to do the ALS ice bucket challenge. If you wish to see it you can find it on YouTube Channel by clicking here.
Before tipping ice cold water over my head, I thought it might be a good idea to look up what ALS is (mainly because I’m a nerd and thought it would be interesting…) Anyway, from what I can gather ALS is a neurodegenerative disease which causes muscle spasticity and weakening of the muscles. It also makes it hard to breathe, swallow and speak. ALS is the deterioration of neurons meaning signals cannot be passed through the body, to put it shortly.
