I’ve been working on this for a while and I’m super-excited to share it with you all! Last year I started making a wee game on Scratch which would double as a music video for my song ‘Rapture’. Then a month or so ago, my good friend Gus stepped in to port the game to Unity. And now we have a finished game!
Go check it out at https://shamblesmiller.itch.io/rapture and let me know what you think. If you like it and feel like helping out an idiot musician who just quit his day job to go study software development, why not buy some of my music? You can do so at http://shamblesmiller.bandcamp.com for any price you like. And if you can’t afford to pay for it, just download it for free ^__^
Hey! In case you haven’t noticed me talking about it on Twitter or Facebook, I’ve made all of my music free for a wee while. So if you fancy downloading my whole back catalogue, including my recent(ish) EP Doing Stuff is Hard, then fill yer boots! Also, I’ll be announcing some new shows soon, and in the meantime you can catch me at Munros on Tuesday nights, hosting the open mic. Maybe I’ll see you there sometime!
In my last post I mentioned that I’d recorded a few songs for the Clydeside Sessions. There’s a new episode of four every week and I’m in a couple of them, with the sun shining through my beard like the glorious ginger mess it is (or, indeed, was, as I’ve had a wee shave since then). Check them out below and keep your eyes peeled for the next episode! If you like what you see/hear, you can head over to Facebook to check out the Clydeside Sessions page and maybe even give them a wee like. Enjoy!
If you’d like to hear me do more of that sort of thing, why not come along to Rally and Broad at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow tomorrow where I’ll be performing alongside all sorts of lovely and interesting people, including yer actual Alan Bissett.
Despite my best intentions, I’ve once again managed to not update my blog for a wee while. Happily though it’s because I’ve been quite busy. My wee flyer did it’s 50th gig last night at the Glad Cafe, I’ve got a music video coming out soon, and I recently announced that I’ll be playing a pretty big show at the ABC 2 in Glasgow on the 27th of April, supporting Geoff Rickly from Thursday. Exciting! Tickets are normally £10 but I’ve got cheaper tickets for sale at my bandcamp, with the option of a wee music bundle as well. It’s kind of a taste of my music for newcomers, or for anyone who has been meaning to pick up some of my tunes but hasn’t got around to it yet. I called it SuperBundleFunTimeYeah! You can buy tickets (with or without the bundle) for the ABC show at this lovely link right here.
I really hope you can make it, it would really a mean a lot to me. In other news, I just found out that there’s a wee feature on me in the Scotland on Sunday today! That was a lovely Sunday surprise. Here it is:
That’s made my day so it has. Anyway, I’ve been writing some new songs recently so hopefully I’ll have some new stuff for you to hear by the next time I post! Hope to see your lovely faces at the ABC on the 27th!
