- October Flew by
Well into November we go, and what happened to October? Well there were a few gigs and lots of open mics. So plenty of live performance stuff going on. I have been performing a new composition called "The Depths of Nadir" as song about the promise of loves forever tied in with dark imaginings around the celebration of Samhain - Halloween. So far its had a warm reception, all good considering the story. Well only one gig on the cards at the moment which is at the Phoenix bar in High Wycombe, Bucks on 10th November I am on between 11 - 12 PM. Two other quality acts before me starting at 8:30. Its an all acoustic night which is a great watch as far as I am concerned. I will be taking time out of gigging on the run up to Christmas as I head back into the little Home studio in Chalgrove to finish my next EP, two songs mixed so far ready for mastering. A re recording of "The Other side" and a new song called the "The Fountains of Bimini" I will let you know how it goes oh and if do get an offer of gig that I cant turn down - ill keep you posted. Thoughts now turn towards Yule!
Well August flew. Some great gigs and met some great people. Back in the studio now so slowing down on the gig front. Just the the one this month at The Rising Sun in Ickford near Thame on the Bucks,Berkshire,Oxon borders and in the shadow of the Chiltern Hills. It’s multi act affair running 1pm to closing On 18.09.21. I know some of the acts and they are good. So it will be high standard performances all day. Work in the studio is slow at present but we are plugging away a getting some new songs and re-recorded tracks out as quickly as can be. Not much to tell do see you soon good people!

- WHATS NEW
As of the beginning of June HogersWolf new EP will be available for download / streaming on all the usual digital platforms, titled "LOVE SONGS AND LAMENTS & THE UN-REQUITED RHYME. it contains five tracks as follows: 1) The White Hare 2) Aiofa 3) A Girl Called George 4) Ms Monagle & i 5) i - Rebecca of Winter ii - Danny Danvers Jig Tracks 1 - 3 are re-recordings of songs previously released and taking afar more acoustic approach. Track 4 is totally new whilst track 5 is a complete re-write of song release under the title New Gods from a few years back. Track 1 The White Hare is a song that touches on the Folklore tale of the Cunning White Hare... go read up on it. Track 2 is song which I wrote for and about Ms Monagle and using the legend of Aiofa from the ancients stories of the Ulster Cycle and the legend of Cu' Chulainn. Track 3 lyrically was originally a poem I wrote for a smart and nice looking girl I met at University she was a little eccentric and liked slightly older boys ( I was a mature student). This made her a target for the ridicule and spitefulness of youths insecurities. Well we were not to be but I feel a slight shame in standing by while she was made the butt of comments and unkindness. This is to remind me of my weakness as well as to celebrate the intriguing soul she was then. Track 5 was written for Ms Monagle my wee Irish warrior, mother and lover. Track 6 lyrically is play on Daphne Du Maurier's story Rebecca.
