Just a quick update. Thanks to anyone who's listened to the album, I hope you enjoyed it.
I made a change to this website by adding a donate button on the side.
Also I've been experimenting with livestreaming on youtube. The idea is that I could arrange a date and play some songs live on the internet and if anyone wants to watch it live they can but if not it all gets recorded and goes up on the videos section pretty much instantly. It sounds ok most of the time but sound tends to dip in and out sometimes which is a bit of a problem. The video looks fine too coming straight from my phone camera.
I could also do some live videos more on the composition side of things if that would be interesting for anyone.
Anyway, I'll post any updates for that.
In other news I decided to get cds made up, hopefully to sell in some independent music shops in Norwich. I know there are a couple and in the past I've thought about it but it just hasn't happened so this time I'm starting small and then if all goes well I can get some more cds and take them with me on tour. I'll also send them to anyone who's bought a copy of the album on bandcamp and make that a standard part of buying the music. Although you could opt out of this if for any reason you didn't want a physical copy. Your choice.

Released today on bandcamp and in a few days you can get it from iTunes and other digital shops. The artwork was drawn and painted by my Mum, Beverley Insull and then photographed and edited into the cover by Ross McIntyre. If you'd like to listen to it or buy it you can go to this address:
I've added some bonus videos and a picture that won't be available anywhere else for now so that's one reason to get it from bandcamp.
Thanks for reading and I hope you like the album.

The artwork is finished and ready to be photographed. I'll upload it to bandcamp where you'll be able to get it straight away and then eventually it'll be in/on some other digital shops. I'd like to have some physical copies available this time so I'll look into that.

I've not really posted much in the last couple of months. I'm not exactly in limbo but a couple of things are suspended in mid-air. My e.p. should be available to buy on cd through amazon's on demand service soon and checking to see if it's there is frustrating me. Making a short film to accompany it seems too ambitious to start without a more thorough plan than I have. Those things aside I've started work on the shell of an album. This is day one. I will post a draft or two up here before I get to work on the finer details. I feel like the writing won't be a barrier here but the playing might be. To get these fingers moving faster - this is the challenge.
Thanks for reading.

A couple of weeks ago Planet of Sound, a show on Future Radio, played Free To Go from It Beggars Resistance. I'd sent them a copy of the EP a few days earlier and they got back to me just as they started broadcasting to let me know they were going to play one of my songs. When it was playing it was a pretty weird feeling, like my insides dissolving and the only response I could think of was to say thanks. On Saturday night it happened again with the BBC Introducing in Norfolk show but this time I missed it happening live. Listening to the podcast had the same effect on me. Anyway, thanks for the kind words!
You can listen to Planet of Sound on Monday nights at 10 on Future Radio and BBC Introducing in Norfolk on Saturday nights at 8 on Radio Norfolk. Links above.
