I’m Alive and Here’s An Update

Hey guys, 

Sorry for the disappearing act, I’ve just been working hard with Marie trying to get some things sorted and after a lot of hard work, mainly from Marie’s side haha, and going through various stages with a very slim chance of getting it but we never gave up and it has finally paid off. I have been offered one of the 4 positions of an internship in the Florida Keys working with dolphins. I couldn’t be any happier as I have always wanted to work with dolphins.

The internship commences on the 20th of August, however I have friends living in the States so if possible I may be trying to go to the US earlier. 

I think hearing the dolphin news has freed my mind from a lot of worries and doubts as I’ve been working on a new song for over 4 weeks now. After hearing the dolphin news I was able to finish the song 3 days later. Hopefully it will be up on iTunes by next week. The song is called Give It Away, it has myself singing and backed-up by my friend Ellie Katsaparas, the guitar was composed by my friend David Sutherland. The song took 3 days to write, the lyrics were written by myself, my cousin Chelsea-Kay Daniels and Ellie as well.

The song can be open to interpretation but it’s mainly about relationships, playing games when it’s past the point of playing games. So it’s about giving everything, but still playing games due to possible previous relationships, doubts or insecurities. Ultimately they have that person completely and would do anything for them and be everything for them. So the words “give it away” can mean a number of things like giving away and not masking feelings or giving away as in a new relationship, giving away being single. It can mean something to every relationship new or old. 

I have just invested in a brand new Blue Yeti microphone so I plan on recording more. 

If you guys have any questions feel free to ask. Marie and I will keep you guys updated. 

Nothing worth having comes easy.
