I’M about to hit the studio for a video meeting with my music branding course tutor when – I get a message from the producer of George Ezra’s End to End film asking me to call her. I do.
Bad news – along with a load more content – my songs round the campfire with George have been dropped. What was originally going to be a four part series has been cut to a single hour-long film and much of the intend footage is on the cutting room floor 🙁
I’m kinda glad we’d keep the filming and my involvement under wraps. It’s disappointing, but it was fun to do and I was well paid for it.
My tutor meeting goes fine. Looks like I’ve a fair bit of work to do over the next couple days but that’s why I’m doing the course.
After a midday session with one of my Zoom guitar students I get busy setting up the Spotify pre-save for the upcoming release of Wanted (Dead or Alive). While I’m not wanting to over-promote it, I wanna spread the word enough to attract some new listeners and it also gives me a chance to take advantage of the fact that my ‘Scottish sea shanty’ version of the Bon Jovi classic commissioned for The Deadliest Catch featured in series 18, episode five.
In between times, some glass coasters I ordered have arrived so I knock ups. couple of prototypes – one for the West Highland Way Gifts’ catalogue…and one for my own music merch store.
Back in the house I start preparing the ancho, beef and butternut squash to take along to Betty and joe’s tonight. Margaret made this last time and I’m adapting for the Instant Pot which I think might make it even better.
We have a grand evening with our pals…and the ancho beef does indeed turn out pretty good 🙂
