What happened to… Amy Studt?

Despite having two great UK hits back in 2002 and 2003, Amy Studt disappeared from the spotlight a year or so after the release of her highest selling single ‘Misfit’. Waste your own time, I don’t care – anything you can do, I can do better. All you girls, you look and…

What happened to… Boy Kill Boy?

I’m having a bit of an youth day with Spotify today, reliving the music I used to live so, so, much. I was wise with Spotify – when I first downloaded it about 3-4 years ago, I made a playlist called ‘Playlist #1’ – a cracking name, you’ll find that hard…

Lots happened this year in the United Kingdom and around the world – there were births, there were deaths, there was freakin’ Dolly Parton at Glastonbury. A lot happened. This post sums up just a few of my favourite bits – feel free to tweet me yours. If it’s a…

New years resolutions – 2015

I like to think I’ve done quite well in 2014 with the New Years Resolutions that I made – it’s the first time that I’ve ever consciously tried to fulfil the promises I made to myself. This year they were less new years resolutions and more ‘priorities’ – things I…
