6 Weeks in LA…

Hey Guys, just returned from an awesome trip to sunny LA. It’s been 6 weeks of pure music and I’ve loved every minute of it.

Whilst there I was hooked up with some pretty amazing songwriters including: Adam Daniel, he’s a great writer / pop artist who’s just bought out his latest album called “Pop Baby” – please check it out! I also wrote with Bill Bell who, aside from being an amazing musician, is Jason Mraz’s guitarist and band leader. Spookily, the day after we wrote Bill was in the UK playing at the V Festival and I’m still in sunny LA checking out the reviews 🙂 Then I got to write some songs with the fantastic Andy Stochansky. Andy is not only a great guy and songwriter/musician but also happens to be buddies with my idol Johnny Rzeznik, unbelievable!

Once again I was in the studio with the brilliant producer Bleu recording 5 new songs, two of which were co-written with Andy. So I now have a total of 8 new tracks that the world has yet to hear. Hopefully it won’t be much longer and they’ll be out there. Can’t wait!!!

As well as writing and recording I got to play a gig at Koffeehouse at the Hyatt hotel in LA which is a lovely venue. My friend and drummer on my songs, Joe Seiders joined me on drums and we had a real fun night.

I’ve also been visiting a variety of eating  places, some have been very posh, some have been very basic and some have really taken me out of my comfort zone (authentic Japanese thanks to Bleu) but all have been totally great.

I’ve come back home with exciting opportunities that I’m desperate to share with you all but have to wait for everything to be finalised. I’ll  be sure to let you know as soon as I can. Until then, I hope you all had good summer and let’s hope the warm weather lasts a little longer. I guess now X Factor’s back on the tv in England it means Xmas will be here soon, ha ha!

Bye  for now. Luke 🙂
