Nothing’s gonna stop us now…

I had a lull yesterday evening at around 5pm. I had already put in a good shift, but was tired, had a couple of hours work still ahead of me and it was looking daunting. I finally focused myself and got to the task at hand – writing charts for the songs for a couple of upcoming 80’s gigs.


There’s a new member of the band this time – someone I haven’t really worked with before (not Tonto in the picture who I have worked with for 12 years)! I emailed him to see how he was getting on with the stuff and within a minute he got back to me asking if he could call me. He reckoned it might be easier to chat that way. Before I could even respond to the email my phone started ringing – it was him.

10 minutes later, what had seemed like an arduous task was now something I couldn’t wait to get stuck into. Why? Because of this guy.

He was right on top of his brief. He had spent hours working out the chords, the lines, the sounds he needed, and his energy and excitement for the music spilled down the phone line to me. He played me some of the stuff on which he had been working and it sounded a m a z i n g.

I can tell you right now that these gigs are going to rock. And they’re basically free!

Sometimes a bit of energy or enthusiasm from someone else is all you need to get you back on track.

Do you or does your project need this? What new people can you ask in to help you?

Or, and more importantly, can you be that person for someone else?

I'm Kieran and I play piano. Actually I do a bit more than just playing - I teach others how to play, and I write music, arrange it and host/produce shows.

  1. Kieran, you are pushing me to prove myself. I cannot do it right now as I have house visitors….but come Monday morning I will have my sleeves up. Thanks for your blogs and encouragement.
