A little update. The last few weeks have been rather stressful through work (and finishing off my degree!). However, I annoy myself when I complain about stress, as I’m very aware there is someone out there who has it a lot worse than me. When I feel like life is getting a little stressful, sometimes I have to take a step back, take a walk with my dog, or just get out in nature, and make a mental list of all the things I’m grateful for. For today, I’ll skip the obvious and most important (Family, friends, my home, my work, my music). Here’s a list of the things I’m grateful for that have happened in April. (I might start doing these every month..more for myself than anyone else. I encourage you to make a list also!)
SUN – YES THE SUN HAS FINALLY DECIDED TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE IN ENGLAND 2018! I have spent the last few days working outside in my garden and hanging out with my friends in the sunshine. I feel like as soon as the sunshine comes out in England (or especially Manchester) everyone stops their plans, and heads stright to the pub, beer garden or park. Wherever you choose, its so lovely to see everyone come together having a good time.
WEDDINGS – I got to play my first wedding to the beautiful Natalie and Luke. It was such a wonderful experience at the amazing venue, The Oak Tree on Peover in Knutsford. Still amazed how these two wanted my voice in the background of their happiest day. I wish Natalie, Luke, Freddie (and baby 2.0 on the way!) a lifetime of happiness and love. I’ll be posting more pictures of this in the next few weeks, as I will be setting up a function work section to this website. For any enquires for weddings/function/corporate work please email me on: Kateanitaartist@gmail.com.
FESTIVALS- This month I got to play the amazing When In Manchester festival, held by 4 wonderful women in the music industry, Abi, Miriam, Ellen and Nicole (Mean Promotions). This festival really showcases women in music and I was so happy to be asked to play for them. The day was wonderful and I got to check out some of the best bands in Manchester. Ones I caught were SAPHO, Bedroom High Club, and Carl North & The Lonely Hearts – who were all incredible, go check them out!
On the topic of women in music, I also got to play an event at Gorilla for International Woman’s Day in March. The event SHE PWR, was hosted by Trof Promotions to showcase hard working women in challenging industries, such as music, theatre, events, prisons, and education. The event was one of the most inspiring shows i’ve ever got to play, and I’m very proud to be one of these women within the music industry.
Here’s to a wonderful month ❤
