December’s gigs with Lee Maddison were lots of fun and very satisfying. If you haven’t heard him, Lee is a terrific songwriter from Hartlepool who combines wonderful insight with a great ear for melody. He has been writing some really interesting new material recently and we will play around with some of those songs in the recording studio this month. With luck and a following wind these will find their way onto a new Maddison’s Thread CD which is due out later this year and which I feel very privileged to have been asked to produce.
