2016 / 17 updates
So it’s been a while since I put an update on here…my apologies! The good news is I’ve been incredibly busy since my last update. During 2016 I launched my remote sessions service officially. After doing remote sessions for years I made it public and it’s been going great with more and more independant artists using my services to record live acoustic drums and electronic drums / programming. More details here: Remote Drum Sessions I recorded a couple of country records which are due for release this year and have more music waiting to be recorded for 2017.
I also took on the job of Musical Director for the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham for their Christmas Pantomime. Lots of programming and writing as well as charts for the band and I also played drums for the 7 week run. We had a lot of fun and broke box office records from previous years with over 42,000 coming through the doors to see the show over the 7 weeks.
5 days off with the family on a short break then straight into rehearsals for the current tour I’m on. After her come back tour in 2015 which I played, German artist “Michelle” has returned with a 29 date tour of Europe for which I’m playing drums and doing a bit of singing. We rehearsed in Gaga Studios Hamburg again run by a great chap called Hans Jurgen. He is a top guy and runs a great recording studio, details here: http://www.gagastudio.eu
We hit most major cities in Germany on this tour and we play Switzerland and dates in Austria also. See dates here: https://www.semmel.de/michelle-ich-wuerd-es-wieder-tun-live-2017.html
The rest of 2017 looks to be busy with more songwriting / studio sessions until more touring around August time….more on this as it happens.
