Getting up Stronger

Saturday, December 28th, 2019

Not long out of a bad situation, I have decided to pick myself back up and get into my music again properly. I tend to get back up even stronger than before and show life what I can do.

This is a great song for such an occasion…



My music has been a constant throughout my life – I love it. I have a long list of acoustic numbers which I have been learning over the course of the year. List below (in flux). I fancy adding a Loverboy or Enuff Z’ Nuff song but those may be too obscure for the average punter.
