I thought it was apt to reference The Smiths lyrics in this blog post as the last year feels like a Smiths song. Full of doom, pessimism, but somewhat enjoyable and you have no idea why.
Well, It is now March 2021. One year on since gigs went into administration. Although I was lucky enough to have a handful of gigs last summer (ssh, don't tell the feds), it has been over half a year since my last gig. However, I feel like there will be more opportunities to play live again this summer and I CAN'T BLOODY WAIT! I must be honest with you though, I fear I have forgotten how to socialise, let alone stand up in front of thousands of adoring fans screaming for their favourite Dai C Thomas song. Oh wait...that was an hallucination. Ok, I may be a bit rusty when I get back on stage (small corner of a pub) and play to an expectant crowd (the barman, his dog, and someone who has walked into the wrong pub).
In Dai news, I have delved into the real world and am working as a content writer from home. It is strange to be employed and have security but I know how lucky I was to get a job in the middle of a pandemic. I couldn't get one for 10 years after I graduated! Now I know, I just had to wait for global annihilation!
Don't worry though ( I know you are) because I will continue with my music and gigs. I already have a few lined due this year (Wye Float Festival, Monmouth in August and a wedding in Plymouth) I just hope they can go ahead.
I have also been working hard on a new song called Hideaway which will be available very soon with a music video in tow! I will keep you posted about that!
Until, next time, this charming man is going to go and see if he remembers any songs from his set list.
take care all
