First of all I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who has downloaded Fear Builds Walls and the brilliant response that I've had from it. I will make sure that it's free to download despite the changes that have been made to Bandcamp but I can't see this being a problem at all. Also wanted to say thank you to all those people who have listened to my demos for my new EP/Album (you know who you are!).
I've been working over the summer on some songs that should be ready to record as soon as I return to university. I was thinking about releasing an EP but now sure that I have enough material to release an album - more details to come! However, I have been playing around with some vocal ideas and have a working title for the release - Two Hearts.
As well as my Coloured Lines release there has been much chatter in the Sawsound camp. We have some dates arranged in and around Leeds and a date organised to play in London. As well as this we're working on an album release that should be ready by the end of November. The album will be available via iTunes, Reverbnation and Bandcamp with a physical release available on Bandcamp and at gigs. You can listen to some songs we've recorded from my Soundcloud page or check out the website www.sawsound.co.uk
Another project that I've been working on is some collaborations with some lovely people who have become The Ambient League :) We are each composing an ambient song which we'll share with one another so that others can add or changes ideas to each others pieces. We also hope to release this somehow for everyone to download - though at the moment we're not sure when this will be.
Here is my original piece for the Ambient League -
