Debut solo album
I've just released (well, in November) my first ever solo album - International Dreams. It was a long term 'goal' of mine so I was really pleased I got it done and put it out. I pressed 100 copies of it on vinyl and there are still some copies left here. Naturally, it was released via the label I run, Shape Records. It had some nice things said about it - most of which are compiled on the Shape site. I made some videos on my phone for a couple of the songs (see below). I am looking forward to working with Mark James to make a new video at some point in 2018 after receiving some support from ACW / BBC Launchpad.
In the summer I got a new job and I now work 2 days a week as a Music Business and Creative Industries lecturer at the University of Gloucestershire. It is a 1.5 hour drive each way so I listen to a lot of podcasts as well as doing the Say Something In Welsh course. If you see me and you can speak Welsh - chat at me, I'm v keen to siarad Cymraeg gyda ti.
I'm also going to be a visiting lecturer every week at University of South Wales starting next week until May teaching on the Songwriting and Music Business courses. Looking forward to it!
We've just had a second child (a glorious little girl called Nia Devi Daman Thomas) so I have been enjoying being busy at home with the children and Emma.
