The Olympics have overtaken London, and the Little Room team are cheering for Great Britain – and the USA, of course…. Gabriel is shouting loudest for the USA!
A quick update on musical things for you all.
Phil Baggaley has been putting the final finishing touches to the new recordings which will form the basis of Rosie Meek’s new EP, soon to be released through Open Road Music. They are still basking in the success of their Isle Of Wight festival appearance this summer, and have nearly dried out their clothes and musical instruments.
David Clifton’s new EP, Old Sea Road, is now manufactured and ready for release on September 1st. It will be available as a limited edition CD/EP by mail order, and for download on iTunes as well as here on the Little Room site.
David also played guitar for Julia Fordham’s sell-out run of shows in London. Julia will be back soon if you missed her this time round. Judith Owen made special guest appearances, with one memorable highlight being a jazz rendition of Spinal Tap’s favourite song…..you can guess which one… with Derek Smalls on bass (….Harry Shearer, Judith’s husband, who was in town) Judith sang sultry and hilarious lead vocals.
And on the subject of the Olympics, David’s cousin (James Pickford…drummer and percussionist) made an appearance in the outstanding opening ceremony, appearing around the world to a billion people or so for three close-up seconds!
What We Did On Our Holidays…..Esther went to France with the family, but didn’t meet up with Katie, who was also in France (Marseilles) recording more dance tracks before travelling back to Hong Kong; Phil Baggaley is up in the wilds of wonderful Scotland; Andy Piercy is in France after heading up the morning band at HTB Focus week; Charlotte packed buckets and spades (and the girl’s favourite princess dresses for her two daughters) and headed for the beach to make sandcastles; David was playing sparkly Gretsch guitar for Andy at the Focus week, and is now travelling in England; Mr. Don is being highly creative in Devon; Paul is off to Wales, and we are waiting for postcards from Ellice, Ian and Adrian. And we are all waiting for some more sun!
The Little Room team, helpers and assistants wish you all the very best of holiday fun.
Gabriel, Sarah, Adrienne, Cameron, Anne, George and David.
