It's been 3 months since my cycling accident and I am finally getting some facility back in my left hand. I can now start to play guitar a little for short lengths of time although it will take a while to get the fingers back to concert strength.
I would like to sincerely thank all of you for subscribing and listening to my work as it helps me to maintain a positive mental attitude. Thanks go to all of you who have sent messages of support. It is truly wonderful to be able to be able to reach such a varied world audience.
Hi Everyone, thank you all so much for listening to my songs and subscribing to my list. Unfortunately due to a bike accident, I've been in hospital, so it might be a little while before I start recording anything new or finishing off tracks already recorded. I damaged the knuckles on my left hand so playing guitar, piano and banjo is out for the moment. As well as breaking my nose and 3 teeth, I fractured the bridge of my nose which is currently in a splint, so I'm not exactly a pretty sight at present. It could have been much worse but at least I still have my warped sense of humour. What a shit of a year this has been for the world in general. I hope you are all well in whatever part of the globe you reside in and have as great a XMAS as you all can. Hopefully the New Year will be better for all mankind. Kindest regards, Gavan.
Hi Everyone Happy New Year to all. Work is finally progressing on album #3 after being ill with pneumonia last year, which took around 3-4 months to get over. You can find updates and also contact me via my facebook page:
To all subscribers and those of you who have sent messages, thank you all so much for listening and your support. As quite a few of those who have messaged me asking where they can buy my albums, in the past I have replied that they should be available via the various digital music services such as I-Tunes, Spotify, CD-Baby, etc. although I have been told that they seem to be either hard to find or not able to be found at all.
As a workaround for these issues, I have decided to make the albums available through my web page as 128k-bit (CD quality) stereo MP3s for purchase using PayPal. A return link to the download page is provided after purchase. The MP3s are listed as individual tracks which can then be played and saved on your device. My apologies for having the tracks as separate files but I didn't want to provide the tracks as a ZIP archive for obvious reasons. If anyone would prefer 192k-bit files, email me and I will make them available on an as requested basis.
My albums can be found on my website where there are PayPal links on the page if you are still interested in purchasing them. If you have any problems finding it contact me via either my subscriber list or my facebook page. The cost of each of the albums is listed as $7. 50 AUD which is approximately $5.00 - $5.50 USD which equates to about 80 cents a track. At least if you buy it direct from me through the website I get the $5 after PayPal take their 50 cents commission charge instead of the 10 cents I might receive from I-Tunes and you are buying direct from the artist.
Thank you all once again for listening, have a safe and happy XMAS and may the New Year bring happiness and success in your endeavours.
