A beautiful morning, and there are a number of 'Sandtimer Thanks' (like normal thanks, but better) to send out.
- Jay & Stephen at PopUp Acoustic Derailed for having us along to perform at The Railway Inn on Thursday, and the audience who came along. It was fun to share some new songs and to enjoy the music of The Mantic Muddlers, Jellicoe, Carl Zed and The Goose and The Crow, (who play a mean harmonium) as well as the poetry of Mollie Russell
- Bristol Funk who've added our new song 'Loner' to their 'Summer Folk' playlist- https://goo.gl/sbHi3e
- The Lift for interviewing us- you can read the interview at: https://goo.gl/3GCjF1
- to BBC Music Introducing The South, who are going to be playing 'Loner' on BBC Radio Solent tonight
- Mr Foxx Frequency, who also featured the song in their 'Songs For July' playlist! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irtN_tYh7w4
- Everyone who's checked out the new single so far- cheers/here's that link again - https://goo.gl/NX5KGd
Have a good weekend everyone, enjoy
Here's our fresh new single, which came out today. We'll be playing it tonight at The Railway Inn with PopUp Acoustic Derailed, immediately after England's towering victory/defeat
This Thursday, two exciting things are happening in the Sandtimer World:
1) We are performing a show at The Railway Inn - Derailed - Platform5 with a host of other great musicians, poets and dancers. We're looking forward to seeing you again, Winchester.
2) We are releasing a new song. Subscribe to our mailing list at http://eepurl.com/dou49D to be, like, THE FIRST to hear it.
P.S. We are selling a limited run of tickets for Thursday at a discount. Just message us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in coming, yea?
182,000 miles, and over 100 Sandtimer gigs it ferried us to in 5 different countries.
Some would say 'it was like the 5th member of Sandtimer'
Others would say 'it's just a car that has irredeemably failed its MOT'
Either way, 'long may you run'
We are delighted to formally announce our upcoming tour of Canada this August! This one is going to be an epic

Not long now till we return to The Railway to perform for PopUp Acoustic- the awesome organisation with whom we played our first ever gig. Needless to say, we are really looking forward to it- and we will have a load of new songs to share with you.
