My first attempt at home recording, using free DAW software on a laptop, is a cover of this timeless Hawkwind classic:
It’s the first song I learned to play and sing at the same time, around 30 years ago.
For most of my life I let my shyness hold me back from performing, but this one song was the exception (and even then I wouldn’t dare attempt it without a few drinks inside me first!).
I’ve been performing it stone cold sober, shyness aside, on stages in front of audiences now for the past year (small audiences, but you gotta start somewhere right?! ), and every smiling face, tapping foot, nodding head and clapping hand has brought me so much joy! It’s just one of those songs!
I published a blog post to coincide with the Summer Solstice on 21st June 2019 inspired by the lyrics to this song here
This is just the very beginning. I’m busy recording original songs now, and I’ll share them all right here as soon as they’re ready for release. Stay tuned! See you on the other side!
