2018 – A Year In Review

2018 has been quite a busy year for me, certainly much busier that last year for sure!

I had been teaching as part of the Sherman Youth Theatre, as well as assisting on their National Theatre Connections production of “[ B L A N K ]” by Alice Birch. I also helped with workshops for primary school children as a part of the Sherman Theatre’s “Primary Expressions” projects, helping the children write and develop their own scripts before performing them on the Sherman’s main house theatre stage for their families. I was very fortunate to be on both the development side and the performing side of the project, and I was very proud of the work we had all created!

Inspired by how prolific the young writers were, I tried my hand at writing a few things myself (usually at work at my old job whilst I was managing conference calls!) more as something to keep myself busy, trying to be productive with my time! I doubt any of my writing will come to fruition any time soon, but it is certainly something that has kept the creativity flowing!

Every fortnight this year, I have managed to ‘release’ an original song of mine, in a wide range of styles. I have released 26 songs, with one more coming in the new year. I am really proud of the music I have made, and I am very grateful for the feedback I have received!

I also played the role of “The Missionary” in Evolution’s “Ann Rolls Green”, which should be appearing on Amazon Prime in the near future. It was a great project to be a part of, and it was great to work with some very talented people!

I have seen some incredible shows this year, and I am very fortunate to have seen some excellent pieces of theatre in Wales and in London:

Wicked – Stephen Schwartz and Willie Holzman
The Birthday Party – Harold Pinter
Dublin Carol – Conor McPherson
Network – Lee Hall (Based on the film by Paddy Chayefsky)
The Wood – Owen Thomas
A Number – Caryl Churchill
The Motherf*cker With The Hat – Stephen Adly Guirgis
All But Gone – Matthew Tevannion
Light Speed From Pembroke Dock – Mark Williams
Quiz – James Graham
Macbeth – William Shakespeare
Consent – Nina Raine
Allelujah! – Alan Bennett
Dust – Milly Thomas
Stories – Nina Raine
Girlfriends – Howard Goodall
Company – Stephen Sondheim and George Furth

I have been very fortunate to see some incredible bands live too:

Steven Wilson – St David’s Hall, Cardiff
Nashville In Concert – Cardiff Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
Robert Plant, Imelda May, Midge Ure – Bath Festival, Bath
Stereophonics – Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff
Rolling Stones – Cardiff Principality Stadium, Cardiff
Ed Sheeran – Cardiff Principality Stadium, Cardiff
Roger Waters – Manchester Arena, Manchester
Eminem – Twickenham Stadium, London
Muse – Royal Albert Hall, London

Moving to London from Cardiff was a very big step. I was struggling to find as much acting work in Cardiff as I would have liked, so I decided to try my luck moving to London where there will hopefully be more work available. A few months after settling down here, I managed to secure new representation, and I am now represented by CBL Management!

I am really excited to see what the new year holds. I’m sure there will be plenty of opportunities that will come my way, and I will be trying my best to make sure that I am ready to take them when they arrive!

Happy New Year!

Company

This is my penultimate release of my fortnightly songs, and today’s track is an upbeat little number called “Company”.
Make sure you give it a listen below in HD!

Get It Right

“Get It Right” is a track that I originally wrote on piano. When it game to recording the track, something wasn’t quite working. I decided to go for some rock guitars, and the song came together quite quickly. Have a listen to the song below in HD, and let me know what you think!

Trapped Inside

This song started its life as a short little piano snippet that I posted on my Instagram ( https://www.instagram.com/joshuadbartholomew/ ) earlier on this year.
It is a piano-led ballad with a rather chilled middle 8 section – Have a listen to it here in HD, and let me know what you think!

Not The One For Me

This fortnight’s track is probably one of the simplest ones I’ve written, with the same chord progression throughout.
It has a rather catchy chorus, and a nice little solo at the end!
