Summer...

Yoo,

Life is good.

I'm really happy that I get to say that. I'm very lucky that I get to say that. And I'm also very grateful I get to say that.

This Summer has been awesome so far. In fact, screw it - 2015 has been awesome so far! Now the madness of July has gone, I've finally had time to reflect and realise just how nice these past few months have been.

I've had the pleasure of going to all the Notts festivals and had many fun, odd, and downright brilliant experiences. No Tomorrow was a personal highlight. Jessie Ware, John Newman and Blonde were all pretty incredible.

Working with Saint Raymond and Liam Bailey on their debut album launches was pretty special - and the pieces of content we made to go along with them - the Nusic Presents are possibly my favourite pieces of work I've put my name to. Check 'em out below.

What else is new in my life? Oh yeah, I met a lovely lady that goes by the name of Nikki. If any of you stalk my social media, you've probs seen her face a bit. She's a lovely human being who I very much enjoy spending my time with. She makes me a better person - and keeps me happy (as long as she isn't dissing my music taste!) pretty much all the time. The only issue is she lives in Grimbsy, but, you know, we're making it work. Trains can actually be quite therapeutic if you put yourself in the right mindset. 

Most of you will know I've always had a bit of a thing for country music. And, that thing has grown. I think if you forced me, now I'd say my favourite genre of music is country. Even overtaking flat-out pop (I know, big talk!) Now, I'm not particularly talking about traditional country, more country with plenty of pop influence. That lil vid above this para is one of my favourite songs I've ever heard. It's got over a 100 plays in my iTunes at the min, and I only first heard it a month or so ago!

Oh, and I went to the most epic birthday party in the world the other week! It was for my mate James. Live bands, portaloos (seriously man, how cool is that?), food stalls, it was so sick. I took some photos (tried out my fancy new wide-angle lens!). You can check 'em out below...

I know you're probs getting bored now, so I'll wrap this up. But in the least cheesy way possible, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who makes my life as good as it is. My family, my friends, my colleagues. You're all pretty awesome. And I'm pretty damn happy right now, so thank you.

Much love,

Sam x
