I shall be playing the piano in a jazz quartet, in a new short film entitled “The Final Leaves Of Winter”, intended for BAFTA-recognised Film Festivals this year and next year.
I shall be on-set all day this coming Tuesday (22nd January), so look out for more updates then.
It is, sadly, too late to post this with the title “Happy New Year” – but here goes…
I’ve seen plenty of people asking how 2013 can possibly live up to the wonders that 2012 had to offer. On a National scale, that may well be the case; 2012 was a Jubilee year, and was the year of a triumphant London Olympics – not to mention the fact that Norwich City Football Club survived to stay up in the Premier League.
On a personal level, however, my first gig of 2013 last weekend, with Crystal Bats, was a belter, while tomorrow sees a return to teaching at Sistema In Norwich, to which I’m very much looking forward.
There are plenty of exciting things planned for 2013 – including more shows with Crystal Bats, a debut album with Witchers (our first studio release since the Throw Your Books Into The Fire EP in July 2010), potentially the biggest ever Keyboard Camp Residential Course, and even a film appearance! So yes, 2013 is shaping up to be pretty good!
As always, you can keep up-to-date with everything that’s going on here the site, and by following me on Twitter.
‘Arabella’ by Crystal Bats, filmed live for BBC Radio Norfolk.

A rare gig playing piano, instead of drums, for Axel.
Axel Loughrey’s new album, Crayon Factory, to be released on All Sorted!?! Records on 26th November 2012. I am playing drums on all the tracks on this album.
Crayon Factory will be available to buy online, on iTunes, Amazon, Play.com, etc. from the 26th.
If, like me, you are both surprised and a little dismayed that the plans for a new Baccalaureate Curriculum completely exclude the study of creative subjects – including music, as well as design and technology, drama and art – you should check out the Bacc For The Future website.
I’m sure you will agree with me that this is an important issue, and that education as a whole will suffer from the lack of creative subjects in schools.
