|A hip-hop artist originally from Oldham in England. Lets have a conversation!|
I was reading back through my old letters and realised I haven't penned one in years!
I've been on an incredible roller-coaster since we last spoke, finished college. Moved half way across the country to a lovely seaside town.
Musically things are going fantastically. I managed to land myself a distribution deal with a record label in mainland Europe, released my first album on spotify and ITunes (You can find it under UK-Craigie Sombre) I've also been really busy with my own online radio show and involved with my local soccer team.
Cant wait to catch up with you all. How have you been?
hey guys, been a while since I wrote last. I've been stuck with an old phone after breaking mine (no fun!)
life isn't bad, finishing up my first album, got a song left to record and I'm about to start a new job.
hope you guys are well
how are you all doing guys? I've been crazy busy haven't updated for months. finishing off my album, its going incredibly well. I had insane writers block for about 3 months that was making me feel beyond crap, but I got over that hump
working with some incredible producers for it, and have been blessed by a feature from two artists in the us and a fantastic guitar solo (really shouldn't mix with hard hitting hip-hop but it does, insanely well!
aside from that not much is new, huge boxing fan so beyond amped for the Floyd/Manny fight. and also to see championship boxing back on free TV in the UK
going to have a catch up with all the letters I've missed now. take care. feel free to write me...
I find myself in a great mood tonight. started back at college today and got offered a great opportunity off the bat
the biggest college production of the year and they want me to front it
I find out the song tomorrow but basically they want me to write a verse or two and work the awards show!!
the problem?? I'm going to have to do choreography!!! with dancers!!!! hahaha
its gonna be a tough month. but I feel extra positive!
so excited to be back at college next week, to lose myself in college work, to throw myself into music, its no secret I've slacked off a little music wise, album is only 85% done and Im frustrated with myself. on the plus side I know it will be worth the wait as its some of my best work
I really want to start performing shows more often but the past few weeks my ego has taken a battering, I've been on a bit of a downer creative wise. stupid manic depressive bastard! haha
I find solace in humour and honestly can't wait to find solace with old friends and new starting Wednesday
I will miss the children as always but I really want this for my future.
if any of you are interested ill leave a lin...
you know what really makes me laugh. family, I know that raising children is its own reward and I don't seek recognition or anything, but I do a damn good fucking job. my children love me, sincere affection and its a beautiful thing
just one time it would be nice for someone to say 'you're doing a fantastic job, have a cuddle you should be proud'
instead of condescending fucking nonsense, drives me fully up the bend
its crazy because the rest of my family i no longer speak to, I spent years keeping that family together, Years sorting out disputes. then all of a sudden when I've had enough everyone just forgets like I fell off the face of the earth
I've only been online for five minutes and already I feel calmer, I knew there was a reason I enjoy this site so much, people pour into it their hopes, fears, wants, needs, desires
pure raw emotion and I just wanted to tell you guys I really appreciate the letters. whether its love, closure, acceptance, a cure. an answer, your destiny
whatever you seek. I wish you nothing but the best in your life's journey and in your future
I have issues, things get to me and infuriate me to the point where I could scream. I don't though.. I lock it away inside and let the tension build
before I go on, I'm not writing this for a pity party or for likes or whatever. I'm just looking at this as a new medium to let thoughts out
I guess it all started when I was younger. I have family issues, since the birth of my two daughters I speak to hardly any of them
aside from my dad. dad is a tough man to get along with, I'm a very emotionally charged heart on my sleeve kinda guy. he's a very tough to read vacant man who seems uninterested
maybe this comes from not really knowing each other as he left when I was real young I don't know....
So I decided to join this site, unsure of what it would entail
unsure if I'll meet poets,musicians, fans but that's minor detail
another way of getting expressions realised without recording
another app to keep me awake til way past morning
for now I'll settle for hello til I get a magical idea
another avenue to relay my every dream, hope and fear
