I’m putting out some new music next week. Haven’t put anything out in a while so I’m looking forward to sharing some again. In the last few months I’ve learnt that life doesn’t always go according to plan and it’s really tested my faith.
Previously I’ve always felt the pressure to have it all worked out and for my life to be in a pretty good place before I can share my art. You know like the “I used to struggle with this but now life’s great.” kinda vibe.
Recently I’ve learnt that there’s beauty in the struggles that life brings and there’s strength in vulnerability and honesty. So now it’s more like “Sometimes I still struggle, life isn’t great again yet, but I’m trusting one day it’ll get better.” Come along on the journey if you fancy it. My new single #Everyday is released on November 24th. P.s I read this the other day. It’s sick.
Why am I almost never satisfied with what I have, but always wanting more? Why does absence make the heart grow fonder? Why is the pursuit of achievement often more enjoyable than the achievement itself? Why does loss, hard times, and suffering often produce the best character qualities in us while comfort, ease, and triumph often produce the worst?
The more you desire something, the more you will be satisfied when you get it. It is through mourning that we know the joy of comfort. Emptiness makes us seek and wanting makes us ask.
Sometimes the tougher times help mould us into the people we need to be.
Allo Las Vegas Such an emotional place to have the last tour date but it was a privilege to witness such hope and light in what has been some very dark moments. After the show tonight we went outside to light some candles and sing some songs. Special moments w/ @mattredmanmusic @amandalindseycook @leonardrayonkeys - Love will have the last word
Very gassed about this. Over 3000 books sold! Huge thanks to everyone that has picked one up. Considering it's my 1st ever book, the support has been unreal. To celebrate, I've just released the audiobook. It contains snippets of exclusive songs and it's available absolutely everywhere that you can get an audiobook from.
Yoooo, huge thanks for all the prayers and kind messages over the last few weeks. Really appreciate it. It's easy to have faith when things are going well, but in tough times you find out what you truly believe. When it's been tough to pray and have faith I've pulled through because I'm still choosing to trust that God's got a plan regardless. That doesn't mean we won't have ups and downs, just means that no matter what life chucks our way, we're never alone and all things will work out for good. Apologies for any shows that had to be cancelled. Looking forward to getting back on the road and making pops proud. - @solomonuk
I've had ups, I've had downs
I've been stuck, I've come round
I don't just thank God in the good times
Blood, I thank Him when it goes south
Cos Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday
Them days might go great
But if Friday Saturday Sunday ain't
Just know that I still thank Him
Rest in perfect peace Daddy. You're my G Risked it all by moving over to London to set up shop and give the best possible life to your fam. The hardest worker I know and you did it without complaining. I'm gutted you didn't get to enjoy retirement. You always taught us about the importance of education and working hard so it's mad that you passed away a few days after you found out my lil bro secured the sickest Graduate's job. It's kinda like you knew your work was done 'cos your two boys are gonna do ok. 2 weeks ago everything was fine but life can change so quickly and I've got so many questions to ask God, but ultimately these are the moments where faith really has to get us through. P.S I promise to try my hardest to get into Formula 1 cos I know you'd be so gassed. And promise to look after Mummy too. Love you Pops.
