I hope you’ll forgive me for not writing sooner, particularly in light the support I’ve had since the single was released almost a month ago. In that month we’ve had around 10’000 hits on the site which is great news. The next step will be getting some national radio play for single in the coming months, and of course, would dearly love to chart it.
I moved from South London to Dartmoor 2 weeks ago after 3 years in the capital. I’m also getting married next week. Everything has been moving at lightening pace with the move, the single release and the wedding, and although seemingly we have a lot on, we feel happy and a great deal more comfortable in our surroundings.
Since returning BBC Devon have been in touch and documented the return, you can read the words here http://www.bbc.co.uk/devon/content/articles/2008/07/30/toby_keane_feature.shtml . I’ll also be performing on Kev Hutchins radio show on august 29thfrom 10 pm. You can listen from anywhere in the world online at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/mainframe.shtml?http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/devon.shtml or listen on a wireless on 103.4 fm if like me, you’re in Devon.
We’ll be sorting a homecoming gig out in September, and I’ll be popping down to the ride marquee to play a set or two, when I get a chance to catch my breath.
The video is coming along; Matt Street is taking time out of a busy filming schedule, to shoot the video in the coming weeks….will keep you posted-we’ll also be making some additions to the site, not least updating the images section, but I’ll also will be adding a ‘words’ section, where you can read lyrics & unseen poems.
What I’ve learnt most over the last month is that the music, the machine, doesn’t exist with out you. Without you listening to the songs, visiting the site, coming to the gigs, it all stops. I’m not there yet, but with your help can be… if you like the songs, pass them on, tell your friends, I will make an album, but only with your help….
All the best.
