May 2020 - Newsletter from Leo
I hope you’re all keeping well in these really strange and difficult times. Hundred Seventy Split like almost everyone is in lockdown. Fingers crossed that things get back to normal as soon as is possible, but I can’t see us touring again until October. As usual you can check for any updates on our web site at www.10070split.co.uk.
So many things had been planned for this year including recording a new studio album at Damon’s newly refurbished and equipped Crescent Studios. We were booked to start in April but since we can’t be together in the same room, I’m not sure when that can be re-scheduled.
We’ve had an idea to keep something musical going in the meantime and keep in touch. A while before the pandemic struck, we had a rehearsal at Musicbox Studios in Cardiff as a warm-up ready for touring.
We recorded some of those songs as a reference; not new material but slightly different versions of songs already released on record. We’ve added video to the audio and you’ll find the videos on the Hundred Seventy Split Facebook and YouTube pages. It’s about as live as we can get until things get back to normal. Hope you enjoy them!
I’ve also just set up a ‘Leo Lyons Musician’ YouTube Channel, where I talk about my career and all things music. There’s a question and answer section plus videos of Hundred Seventy Split and classic TYA footage all gathered together in one place. I intend on adding something new each week, and as it builds perhaps even add interviews with some of my musician friends.
All things are possible with your support so please check out my channel. If you like it please SUBSCRIBE to receive notifications of new posts when they occur.
That’s all for now. I send best wishes from me, Joe and Damon. We look forward to seeing you out on ‘The Road’ as soon as is possible. Stay safe.
