So, what have we been up to?
Song-writing, singing, performing, learning, growing, gigging, getting ready for recording. It's been a hectic time since we moved back to Bulgaria. Family and myself are happier here which means I can more happily work on the music. 
The big news is we are booked into a lovely studio in Sofia to create what will be studio album number 3 for Jamie Mc Donald & The Number Nein, we have a number of working titles and too many songs to go into here.
Needless to say we will be including a few of the new songs we have been sharing live.

I have been most remiss in my duties to this page. That is however a good thing as I have been flat out with creative works and life. Our daughter Robyn is growing into a lovely little character, music continues to pour forth and also a novel has begun to form.
Yesterday, we took a trip to Bastardstown, Wexford where we did a spot of recording with the guys from Odi. Dave and Claire have a magical musical retreat there in their new Calico studios. 

Ok, so life has been nothing if not hectic lately. So, many things happening on the homefront with one bean off to big school and another bean being born. Robyn-Jay Mc Donald joined us on the planet at 2:50AM on the 29th August 2017. All is well thankfully.
Meanwhile, we have begun booking next years tour dates for both Ireland and Europe and also two lovely 
pieces of press have arrived on our desks.
One more review and also a recent interview, both of which I shall share here shortly.
