So 2012 was a blast of a year!
Welcome to 2013! Gig dates are being confirmed at the moment as we speak, and a new website is being planned but for now I would like to say thank you to every single person who came to a show, every promoter who booked me, and all the lovely musicians and crew I have met on the 2012 journey. It really has been a belter of the year, being my most successful year yet as a musician with some truly memorable moments.
Some of the best festivals I have ever performed such as Skegn…ess Blues Rock Festival UK, Bliuzo Naktys Lithuania, Edinburgh and Maryport Blues Festivals, UK, Culemborg Blues Fest Netherlands and Shetland Islands Blues Festival which was one of my all time favourites I must say!
The dirty oZ Band which was Miikey Dean-Smith and Aaron Spiers did our first 6 date tour of Spain performing festivals which included a record headline show for me with 1100 people showing up, which was followed by my biggest show of my life supporting Toto in Kologne at Tanzbrunnen performing for 6000 people to great applause! The autumn had a very enjoyable 45 date tour across Netherlands, France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, Poland and Spain which finished the year off which I would like to thank my band Keith Matthews and Chris Sharley for, and in amongst that, two cameo appearances in the Markthalle and Fabrik, Hamburg alongside some great names.
I have also been extremely lucky to perform on two of the most legendary stages in Rock History, which were the 100 Club, London and The Cavern, Liverpool. Both with my dear friend Connie Lush.
Press wise its been great having songs on the Classic Rock Compilation CD for the second time, a 2 page feature in both Bluesnews Finland, as well as Route66 Spain, and my first ever magazine front page cover article in Gitaarplus, Netherlands. This year has some great announcements to be made soon and is looking very exciting but for now, I wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU! Krissy x
