I need to say a very large and overdue to THANKYOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

to everyone who helped, supported, photographed, lent me the best bike ever, gave me a gig or a place to rest my head and of course all those who sponsored me on my cycle and busk from Bristol to Edinburgh this summer in aid of TEMWA’s trees for life project in Malawi. You all helped me to raise over £2000 which will result in an incredible 20, 000 trees being planted in Northern Malawi.

Summer Tour 2012 – Bristol to Edinburgh, On My Bike!

May 17th, 2012

On July 12th whilst all eyes are on London’s 2012 Olympics. I ’ve decided to cycle as far as I can in the opposite direction! I will be setting off from Bristol, on my trusty bicycle, with a trailer carrying my amp and guitar and heading North. My aim, is in a month to reach Edinburgh to play on the streets during August’s Fringe Festival. On route I will endeavour to busk in every town that I pass through. Most of the gigs will be street performances along with a few pre organised indoor venues, soon to be confirmed.

I will be writing a blog interspersed with photos and videos which is going to be brrilliant so make sure you don’t miss it!  http://cecilyintotheworld.wordpress.com/  I am doing this to raise money for a tree planting project in a heavily deforested area in Malawi the charity are called TEMWA http://www.temwa.org/treesforlife/

 If you’d like to sponsor me I’d love it!  http://www.justgiving.com/cecilyontour

Kinda like a way to show you like what you like, like.

November 6th, 2011

I’d just like to alert your attention to my facebook page if you’re not already aware of it, which is also regularly updated with gigs and other info, but I like to think it’s a little bit more personal a bit like an intimate solo gig in cosy familiar surroundings in which we all look at each other’s photos and have a chat during the interval!

All you have to do is click the link at the right hand corner of this page…and then when you’ve had a look perhaps you could ‘like’ me..how about that!?

To be ‘liked’ is the kind of validation us insecure performing arty types can’t live without…akin to air and water really so you know all I’m saying is if you don’t ‘like’ me I may well wither away and droop into my little terracota pot on the windowsill and I think that may be more than anyone’s conscience could bare, so really it’s just easier to press the like button!

Also if you press the ‘like’ button at the top of this post it’ll show you ‘like’ this website and then maybe your friends will have a look too and maybe they’ll ‘like’ it and before we know it there’ll be a whole lot of liking going on, and let’s face it folks, that’s what this music business is all about these days!

 

Thank you!

Toybox, Sheds, and Clevedon Pier!

November 5th, 2011

 

Hello folks,

Well it’s been a busy few weeks, starting with a recording session at the fantastic Toybox studios in Bristol in which myself and Tom recorded some new songs in our new stripped down acoustic fashion.  They’re  sounding lovely and I’ll be making one or two of them available as a free download very soon.

We then went on to film in a shed in Clevedon. It’s a particularly special shed  full of nik naks and curiosities and has also picked up alot of interest from all sorts of people such as Whispering Bob Harris and Steve Levine.  Every week the shed’s owner Jon posts a new video of a band or individual performing in his shed on his website and ours  should be turning up there any week now.  I’ll be sure to inform you as soon as that happens!

We then returned to Clevedon last week for a photo shoot with our friend Ben who took some rather classy black and white  shots of us sitting on various benches,  leaning on walls looking pensively out to sea,  spying on fishermen and gazing into coffee cups in wood panelled cafes.. can’t think of a better way to spend a day really!  These will of course be finding their way into the photos section of this site.

Cheers ears and happy Gun powder plot night!!
