It’s been one incredible year of changes and adventures..tours and travelling..studio time, hard work, hundreds of live gigs, recording, photo shoots, video planning and editing, meetings and writing sessions.. Learning guitar and piano…Late nights, early mornings, crazy days.. It has been amazing, exhausting, fulfilling, intense and surprising, and I am so grateful and happy to have my talented, dedicated, special bandmates with me along for the ride..Huge thanks to KT, Tony, Luke and Selim for playing, travelling and recording with me.. I had the opportunity to play shows in Bulgaria, Channel Islands, Norway, UK, USA.. We released 2 singles, 2 E.P.s, wrote many, many new songs, collaborated with other artists and began work on my debut album which, if all goes to plan, will be ready for you sometime in 2015! The new year will be filled with new releases, more intense touring than ever, more headline gigs, co-writing sessions and some big news for the summer… Thanks for your support, love, sense of humour, positivity and for believing in me.
Happy New Year – have a wonderful time! ILONA xx
