3rd of August blog update

brnoofficeI am writing this blog update in a hotel room in Brno, but by the time it come’s out I will be in Austria, the morning after our last show of Sliotar‘s 2014 Summer tour and a day before I fly back to Dublin. It’s been a great tour, one of the best I think. And as much as I am glad to get back home, a little part of me would like the tour to continue 🙂 But hey, next time.

So even though the tour has devoured my life for the past few weeks, I still managed to post quite lots of stuff on my website and here is the rundown of the week gone by.

First as always, we start with this weeks song. Once again a massive thank you to Matthew Gillian for the help on this one. Check it out here:

Why is it so hard to take good advice on board when it is given to us? I have been guilty of this several times. So here’s a blog post on it:

In the middle of all this touring I managed even edit a video that I did some filming for before I left Dublin. Check it out here:

Finding the right studio engineer

I love touring, but from time to time it can be tough as well. But it’s the small things in life that matters the most in these moments 🙂

And that’s all for now folks, as always you know I’ll be posting lots more during the week, so keep checking back 😉
