In which we have a lovely chat with the equally lovely @brilliantgamble about work / life balance (none); creativity (some) and dressing up as a bear (if it made the edit: lots). #creativity #podcast #worklifebalance #life #independentartists #selfemployed #selfemployedlife #socialmedia #selfmotivation

Don’t know how we missed this but Prog magazine’s Chris Roberts wrote some lovely words about us in a recent issue.

In Leigh-on-Sea for house gig number seven, hosted by the very lovely @everyrecordtellsastory and his even lovelier wife, Sarah. A very warm welcome, including M&Ms on the rider WITH ALL THE BROWN ONES TAKEN OUT. #thefulltap #houseconcerts #pledgecampaign
It’s a 9/10 for Wapentak from Americana UK :-) #sweetbillypilgrim #supportindependentartist #independentartists #americana #protestsongs #albumreviews #selfreleased
I think my sons have been using my Spotify again. I think I keep up pretty well, but I do get confused by all the Lils. #Lils #dadposts
I’m listening to Young Gods. In an entirely unrelated matter, our new album Wapentak is available here: http://sweetbillypilgrim.com/wapentak.html It won’t make you do this. #sweetbillypilgrim #supportindependentartist #independentartists
It's important that independent artists and businesses keep supporting one other. In that spirit, I'd like to introduce you properly to our friends at @deco_audio in Aylesbury. 
I'm guessing that many Pilgrims have pretty exacting standards for hi-fi equipment, and Peter and James are *proper* experts, plus they don't make you feel like a dick when you don't know your Audion from your EL34s but just want your music to sound awesome.

Plus, they put our very own Wapentak out on vinyl via their very own boutique label.

So, please go follow them here and on FB if you're interested in all things audio, and maybe pop by if you're in the market for an hi-fi upgrade or you're re-investing in a turntable. Also: important. *whispers* THEY HAVE A RECORD SHOP UPSTAIRS.

OK, no actual prizes for this, but can anyone tell me to whom I owe the honour of owning this t-shirt (apart from Jana who bought it for my birthday) ? #tshirts #timstshirts #sweetbillypilgrim
Here's a pic from our recent video shoot (where I was stuffed into a corset and Tim had his trousers suspended in the traditional way). The place where we filmed it is our wonderful friends' vintage shop called Cha Cha Cha Vintage and, because we don't spend enough time in that place, we're also going to be doing a gig there on the 20th of September. There will also be a tap room next door with locally made beers by the lovely guys at muswellhillbillybrewers.co.uk 
More details as they arrive!

Working on some ad music. For all the effort expended elsewhere, I really just want to repeat this two bar loop. #musicianlife #composing #logic #loops #arranging #admusic #librarymusic
When eating Bran-based cereals, always put a bit too much milk on. That way, rather than wasting it, you can mop it up with some of the sugary bullshit that the children eat. #lifehacks #latebreakfast  #breakfastsofinstagram
This picture is by my favourite photographer, Stephen Shore. It was my original choice for the cover of Twice Born Men, but it wasn’t to be (we couldn’t afford it). It turned out well, as it goes... both the original and the re-release ended up with great covers, but I still love this lots.
