'Freeze' - single launch/new video & album news
19th December 2020
Well...we got there! The band and I managed to cut the new album 'last one get the lights' during lockdown 2 in October/November 2020. We have a string of singles due for release between now and April 2021, when the album will come out and hopefully an album launch of some kind, followed by a tour in the Spring/Summertime.
Anyway, I hope you can join me for a very special online gig at home to celebrate the release of the band's first single 'Freeze' where I will be playing a stripped back set of the new song plus the two b-sides. I will also be talking about the band's plans in the coming weeks and months. Please tune in to my live stream at 4pm (20.12.2020) over at my Facebook page. Cheers, Nick x

The past few weeks have been quite trying for us all, but I am have found absolute solace, focus and calm, doing these 'Gladdish-Hour' live streams each week. Yes, it's not the same as gigging to a real audience, in real bars, but it has brought people together (family and friends) and new faces from across the pond, connecting over a few afternoon bevvies, and an hours worth of live original music.
It's been a nostalgic affair for me, revisiting some really really old material from the '90s. I have enjoyed unearthing songs I use to play in my old bands (NUMB, Spacebaby) through to my uni days and beyond with Casualkai. It's also been lovely to play songs I'd written with a lot of my old friends from down south. It's kept me on my toes, engaged and it's quite challenging at times, trying to remember chord sequences and melodies..this is good though, stops me getting rusty.
Trying to sort/update my studio at present, upgrade my gear, so I can start laying down the foundations to my new album.
Keeping busy which is the main thing!
Until next Sunday...it'll be another collaborations set list of yesteryear plus some new songs.
Go to my facebook music page for more details.
Cheers, Nick x
