So my ‘Salt Air EP’ got to number 23 in the singer/songwriter charts on iTunes recently! Thank you so so much to everyone who has bought it so far and is listening to it – I hope your ears are enjoying it. All the money I make from online sales from November and December will all be going to Clic Sargent Charity to help children with Cancer and provide support to their families
It has been a long time coming but we are finally there. It has taken a lot of blood, sweat and certainly tears to produce this Ep which I am extremlly proud of. It has come straight from the heart. This EP is extremely personal to me and I guess documents a four year period, with the inevitable bit of heartache, growing up, love, unrequited love and the healing process that goes hand in hand, all thrown into the mix. I like to write in a way that can remain personal yet relative to the masses and I really hope this does. I can reveal that this EP features the first song I ever wrote and will also feature a song where the vocals were done in one take – I didn’t want to mess with that one as it sounded so raw and so very real.
Each track has been carefully placed in a way to test the emotions and hear it how it was intended.
Salt Air – the formations that occur when two waves crash.
Salt Air EP – the product that occurs when two hearts collide. It will fill in the gaps between unrequited love and unconditional love #SaltAirEP
I must thank Miss Cheryl Barnes for being amazing, Mr Kevin McGee for being a best friend, Mr Benjamin Musselwhite for all his help and Mum, Dad, Nanny & Grandad for making it possible.
Salt Air EP is now available for download at www.vickimusselwhite.bandcamp.com
Acoustic Night! I will be playing at The Fat Fox, Southsea. This will be a great night to raise money for the student’s upcoming exhibitions in London and Portsmouth. Tickets are £3 0n the door
I would just like to say a massive massive thanks to Curt Smith of Tears For Fears, for retweeting my cover of ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’ to his thousands of Twitter followers, huge honour and also resulted in a few sales of my E.P, so thank you Curt
My first London gig and what a way to kickstart it at none other than The Wheelbarrow, a well established, unassuming, music orientated venue on Camden High Street. In a city that’s not renowned for it’s overly friendly/warming nature, this was stark contrast to the venue! I felt at ease straight away and forgot my feelings of ‘this city is way to big for me’. It I quite a daunting experience to play an unfamiliar city but to play an unfamiliar city that just feels way too big for a girl straight out of the countryside is something else. In fact, it was probably the most comfortable I’ve been on stage. I did, however, forget my setlist at one point and wanted my mum….you can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl. Great gig. I will be returning to the big smoke…very soon in fact, watch this space!
It was an honour to be asked to play at this event in Wincester alongside comedian Katy Brand and Tamsin Day Lewis. Unbound Live! is a great concept showcasing new books and half-written books to audiences, in the hope they will capture their imaginations and they will take the time to pledge in order to fast- track the books release or indeed publishing. It is getting increasingly difficult to publish books that aren’t celebrity autobiography, so this is a challenging new concept which looks set to turn that on it’s head. It was an enjoyable gig, a working singer/songwriter, accompanying a working author – a good recipe to showcase the challenges we face in our own field. Thank you Unbound Live
Here is a set of new demo songs that will hopefully make it onto a new EP very soon. Enjoy
I read an article the other day that said you have to play a new song to a live crowd approximately seven times until it is firmly in your body and your heart. I like this. I think it is true because you can be so passionate about a song you’ve written but playing it to a live audience is just totally different. I always write hoping that whoever is listening will be able to connect in some way emotionally with my songs. If you’ve ever been to one of my gigs, you will know that I like to create a bit of an atmosphere.
So it is a brand new year and what better way to kick that off than with some gigs! I will be one of two acoustic acts to perform at the ‘Unbound Live’ event in Winchester, alongside comedian, Katy Brand and others..see link below for tickets
Should be a great night. I will also be playing in Camden this month, so keep an eye out on here for dates
Hope everyone had a really lovely Christmas. My last gig of the year was an Acoustic special at the Railway, Winchester. An unplugged affair. Was a great night of music to round of my year very well and also raised money for the Railway photographer. This year has been truly amazing what with my first E.P, support slots for great artists, radio airplay and being noticed by bbc introducing, the support has been never-ending, so, thank you. I have written a lot of new material towards the end of this year and look forward to recording again early in 2013 so you can hear it. Please keep checking on here for new gig dates and updates on my music and also follow me on Twitter at:
and also a little ‘like’ on my facebook page wouldn’t go unnoticed, thank you :)..
Over and out. Hope you all have a fantastic New Years Eve celebration
