First Tuesday Songwriting Group On The Road

Last week the First Tuesday Songwriting Group descended en masse upon the Spotlight Open Mic hosted by Alexa Hawksworth at Filthy’s Bar.

Rachel McClean, Matt Wood and Dan Wright (The Most Ugly Child) all did sets and Phil Grafton brought along fellow Sea Monster Eyes guitarist Geoff Carlin for a hilarious bout of crazy tunes and self-heckling.

We. Had. A. Blast. The event runs every week at is highly recommended.

Sea Monster Eyes: Live In The Studio

I’ve been writing a song with Phil from Sea Monster Eyes. Today we started recording it,  using a borrowed acoustic that’s worth more than all my other guitars put together. I got to hear rough mixes of SME’s upcoming album (it’s awesome) too.  And Phil is the only person I know who owns an oil painting of himself.

Sea Monster Eyes are playing this Sunday at the Nottingham Riverside festival. Here’s the band doing a live radio session
