what a year this has been . so many amazing moments to look back on .... playing to 40,000 people at pink pop festival in holland , cuddling a jaguar in mexico city ( whilst drunk .... ) playing at a metal festival in austria , nearly getting arrested for busking in madrid , driving through a snow storm in scotland , playing on jools holland , jay leno and children in need , singing bruce springsteen songs whilst standing on a table in a beer tent in belgium , busking in dublin to over a thousand people ,selling out two nights at the shepherds bush empire in london - the venue i dreamed of playing as a kid , seeing arsenal beat borussia dortmund ... in germany ( sorry dortmund fans ....) watching stu larsen wow audiences across the world and putting jarrad seng in a suitcase in melbourne to name a few ......
it feels like a good time to say thank you . thank you to those of you that have supported me since i have been playing to 6 people in a pub and sticking with me through the madness ( you know who you are !) thank you to those of you that have come on board this year . to everyone who has bought , streamed and shared my music . to everybody who has come out to a show or busking . to all of those who have left lovely and thoughtful messages on my facebook and twitter. to ed sheeran and his team for the opportunity of a lifetime . to everyone that i've had the pleasure of working with - from venues to radio stations and my amazing team - you are some of the best people i know . its not easy to say how much it means , in fact its impossible . your support has allowed me to live my dream . to travel the world and play to people that know the words to songs that i wrote in my bedroom . you have given me the best year of my life and i will be eternally grateful .
i can't wait to visit as many of you as possible and share my new record with you next year !!
for now though , here is a video that my immensely talented friend jarrad seng made on the recent tour of australia . everything this guy touches is golden but this for me is some of his best work . go and like his page if you like putting beautiful images into your eyes !!
it seemed fitting to make something for the song "all the little lights" to close out the year . i hope the lights are shining bright for all of you this christmas .
all my love and thanks . mike x"
