I want to 'Rock With You'.

Hi Guys

A FEW THINGS I WANTED TO MENTION..

1) Following on from my tour of Ireland in Feb to promote Democracy of One i've decided to do some more shows in Sep.

I've just confirmed a Dublin date for Fri Sep 11th at The Sugar Club and will hopefully be adding more Irish dates happening around that time over the coming weeks.

There is a possibility i'll be playing the Electric Picnic too so i'll keep you updated.

So really looking forward to seeing you at these shows,i'm not sure yet whether i'll do them
solo or with some friends,we'll see how it goes!

2) Democracy of One will be released in the UK in Sep also and we're planning a London show sometime around the middle of the month and i'll be trying to tie in some European dates around this time also which should be fun!

I'm always open to suggestions for gigs from people so if you've got ideas let me know,
and maybe we can make it work.Obviously the more interesting and exciting the better!

3) I'm trying to put together a tour of the East Coast of the US and Canada for late sep/early oct so will keep you posted on that and again suggestions of cool intimate places to play are welcome.

It's been a strange week here in Los Angeles with all the Michael Jackson hysteria.I guess the only positive thing is that we now fully realise his genius.Miles did a long time ago.

I've lots more news but why tell you all at once?

Speak to you soon.

Keep in touch and thanks for listening.

Much love,

CD x.

HELLO

I hope this finds all of you lovely people well.

I’m writing this from LA where it’s sunny of course and people seem to have taken their swine flu masks off. Just wanted to let you know what's going on...

There’s lots of great new things up on the website including downloads, very cool T-shirts, new photos/videos and Kenny has a book idea in the works with some seen and unseen photos from the shoots we’ve done together, I think,he’s been busy!

I’m planning to put together some US dates over the next few of weeks so keep checking the tour page for details, it would be great to see you at the shows.
The tour of Ireland in Feb/March went exceptionally well. We had a lot of fun doing the shows and it was cool to be out playing the songs from Democracy of One.
I hadn’t been home for a while and it was great to have had such a positive reaction to the album. We also had a lot of radio airplay on Raise the Dead without too much hype which I was obviously delighted about. I have to thank Tony Fenton on Today FM for being the first to play it, believing in it and getting the ball rolling..a top bloke.

Strategies will be the new single in Ireland so hopefully people will get to hear it in all it's glory....

Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows, it was great to see you, the support really means a lot. It was of course a real honour to have my good friend Fiachna O'Braonain join me onstage every night, it made it extra special for sure. It was lovely to have Emm Gryner as my special guest, she's incredibly talented and a really lovely person.

We’ve set up a youtube channel with lots of video clips some of you may not have seen; www.youtube.com/colindevlinmusic
There is also a lot of talk about heading back down to Buenos Aires to make a video for 'What Good Is Love' following the success of 'Raise the Dead' directed by Sebastian Lopez.

Anyway,i'm really looking forward to getting back on the road and doing some more shows. I have decided it’s time to break out the electric guitar which I’ve been missing. It may involve piano playing too... It's been a while since I did US dates outside of LA so that will a lot of fun.
I’m also planning to do some more Irish and English dates in September.

So make sure you subscribe to the newsletter and we'll keep you informed.

Take care,
Colin x.
