What’s The Buzz ?


Hello friends!

So after six months of planning and preparing for our UK/ Europe tour we are finally here, sitting in our friend’s loungeroom in Bristol! Before we left our home shores we launched Daydreamer at The Bush Theatre and The Beach Hotel. If you haven’t seen our Official film clip for Daydreamer, you can check it out here – http://www.youtube.com/user/andreasoler17

It’s good to be back in the UK. We’ve spent the last two weeks catching up with friends, sight seeing and also playing some shows. We played our first gig at The Dolphin Inn in Blandford Forum with Dan Baker and Jim Allen. The kind of old pub where you have to duck to get in the door, and where a crowd of fifty make it a full house! You can have a look at our acoustic version of Better In The Sunshine!

After the Dolphin Inn gig, Jim, Laura, Jimmy, Gobs and myself hung about til about 2am drinking, laughing and chatting. It has pretty much set the precedent for every night since. How do I keep this up for another 3 months?

SUNRISE CELEBRATION Festival

We played The Sunrise Festival (which could have been renamed Mudfest!). The rain bucketed down, wind howled and mud sloshed around our wellies, but it did not manage to dampen the good vibes.

The Chai Wallahs stage is made up of a great crew of people who are passionate about helping independent musicians get their music out there. Not only did we play their stage, we got the chance to interview some of the key people involved in Chai Wallahs and they will be featured in our grass roots touring doco.

 The Chai Wallahs Stage Line Up at the Sunrise Celebration Festival was fantastic!

There’s just one person missing from this trip so far and that’s Big Al. Somehow being in the UK and not being able to head on down to the Sonic Kitchen Studios seems so strange to me. It’s like I keep expecting to see him in a festival crowd or down at a Costas Coffee shop. This amazing man who brought so much to my life and my music isn’t here anymore. Since he passed away two years ago, I think about him nearlly every day and I can still hear words of wisdom ringing true, (mainly his jokes about life, love and bass players!). So much of who I am today as a musician was formed from spending time and working with this incredible man – Big Al. Daydreamer was made in loving memory of him, and I hope it does him proud.

See you all very soon,

Andrea, Goba and James!
