New beginnings!

Hello my friends, from sunny Los Angeles! I can hardly believe that I’ve been in LA for nearly two weeks now – Mylo is great and absolutely loving the weather…just in case you were wondering about my little guy.

I’m really excited to be blogging for HELLO!, and thought this could be a good way to keep everyone in the know about my new journey – insert (cheesy?) lyric “here I go again on my ownnnn….” thanks for that, Journey.

These past two weeks have been a bit chaotic. The flight over was really tough…we were extremely jet lagged for about three days, but you know me me…I bounced back and made a full recovery. My first weekend here I went hiking in Runyon Canyon – wow! The view was awesome.

I must say, it’s very refreshing to do so many active things out doors and with nature. We’ve also moved in to a new flat (or “apartment” as they say here), and I’ve become an expert furniture assembler and mover.

I’m thinking of opening a part time moving and assembly business…I love it THAT much. No I don’t. LOL. Been catching up with old friends, making some new friends. Hmmm…what else?

Last week I attended The Thirst Project’s annual Thirst Gala, my very first red carpet as an official Los Angeles resident. The Thirst Project is an amazing organisation that brings safe, clean drinking water to people around the world.

I was so shocked to learn that almost 1 billion people on the planet do not have access to safe, clean water, and 4,100 kids under the age of five will die today from drinking dirty water.

Pretty crazy. You guys should definitely get involved. I’ve also been back in the studio doing what I absolutely love…writing and recording. I’m so excited for you to hear what I’m working on. It’s going to be big!

Now that you’re pretty much up to date on what I’ve been up to since the big move…I’m going to get a little mushy for a moment.

I thought you deserved to know my final thoughts on “things” with the band. Firstly, each one of you has touched my life and made me a better person each and every day. Please know that this is NOT a goodbye, so put those tears and tissues away!!

We’ve been like family, you and me, but it’s weird because I feel like you’ve only had a small taste of who I am and what I sound like. I was put in a role with the band that I didn’t really like, and it wasn’t easy, because I was prevented from being me and having a voice.

Time to spread my feathers

Mark Whalberg said it best (yes another cheesy moment) – “The peacock needs to spread its wings and fly” lol — and I plan on doing just that :) So with my next step, and in this next phase, I’m SOOOOOOO excited to show you the other 60% of me that I couldn’t show you.

I’m so thankful for your support and I plan to continue doing what I love, so with this blog you’re gonna read about all of the stuff I’m doing – whether it’s making music, acting, or just sharing my thoughts on life. I’ll be posting every Tuesday, so stay tuned for next week…

Speak next week

Speak next week

This is just the beginning, so hold on tight and I can’t wait to see where we’ll end up next…together. You’ve made my days brighter, and I love you all. Talk again soon!
