Not the sort of post I usually make, but Alan is a guy I have supported for YEARS, partly as he is local to me, but mainly because I believe in this guys talent! If you are local, buy a ticket & come and spend the night in the audience with me!!

*Long post for people who care* (Me Alan, I care!! Helen!)
Wonder how many people delete me soon because I keep spamming the fact I have a gig?? This gig is incredibly special to me. I have been planning this for MONTHS. Lots of sleepless nights, finance worry, doubts that people would pay to see me…
With 23 days to go, I have sold over 150 tickets. I have an amazing opening act, the nicest people ever that is Sally and Stephen aka Gasoline and Matches. I have (and didn’t think I’d help make it) made a beer to go along with this event AND new single. An awesome venue where I have played open, mics, written and recorded at. Also, played really shit piano I’ll leave that to the pros.
I’ll probably say this won’t happen again in my local area, but I’ll have my band with me. A great group of musicians that will have a laugh and fun while playing. Plus they make me sound good
Honestly, I never thought I’d do anything like this. I’m nervous, still not sleeping well either, but I’ve been told to do things that scare you. I can promise the people who have tickets, I will give you the performance you deserve. Until my voice is raw and I can’t stand, I will give 110%. That’s my promise.
If you want to come, some tickets still available.
What started as a crazy idea in the summer has become real. Its been a long while, but I’m f*cking proud of myself.
Thanks to everyone who was there from the start in 2016, the people met along the way, the teachers, friends, radio hosts, venue/festival owners. This is my milestone. Let’s plan the trip to the next one.
