Do you ever get the feeling all the Christmases are joining together? 'Must be my age.. Anyway, I wish you all the very best this festive season no matter which version of God you have. (Personally, I prefer the "God is Love" definition).
SO, LOVE and RESPECT to all and peace, and peace-of-mind, to all on earth. Live for today and stay in the NOW. Have a good time and donate something to the poor!
A thousand thanks for the faith. I hope we'll be together again soon.. Health, Happiness and One Love in 2008.
Thanks to those who popped into the Palau St Jordi in Barcelona for my short show. I think I met just about all of you before I went on stage and it was most heart warming to feel the spirit of you. Despite the cold, white arc-lights, I felt very relaxed and "in the zone". Sorry there was no encore - they had to close the building! Well, that's probably the last one for some time as I concentrate my efforts wholly on Marillion's album 15 and the Xmas tour. Hopefully I'll see you soon. Thanks for a great little tour. It was beautiful.
ps If you're an h Natural junkie, go to h-tunes where you can download a whole show. I'm currently mixing the soundtrack for the forthcoming "Naked In The Chapel" DVD (filmed at the London show recently). It's looking and sounding lovely. Thanks to all who attended and created such a fantastic atmosphere. Should be available Spring 2008.
Hello again. Many, many thanks to all who showed up in Holland and Italy for my recent solo gigs. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I. Huge thanks to all those involved in making my solo shows happen, those who gave me rides from, and to, the airports - and those (I'm thinking of Italy) who showed me incredible generosity and hospitality. I'm a lucky man.
ps I still read the guestbook so feel free to say hi..
For his only Italian stop on his h natural solo tour this next Saturday (6th October), Steve Hogarth, will simultaneously land on Second Life!
In addition to playing a "regular gig" at Cervia's "Barrumba", on the Italian East Coast, h will perform direct live (and real!), voice and piano, through his virtual avatar, on the stage of the "Italy Island Resort", one of the most important and active Second Life italian community.
With currently more than 9 million members, Second Life (http://www.secondlife.com) is the biggest virtual community of the world, and literally a unique phenomenon on its own.
h will introduce his very intimate and interactive live show to a whole new audience, rendering, as usual, stripped down and emotional versions of his own (or Marillion) songs, as well as some landmark covers (from Leonard Cohen to Stevie Wonder), following both his own and audience's mood.
No doubt the outcome will be a unique, intense and natural concert all together for the happy few on either, the real, or the virtual side of the fence.
Accessible worldwide, 9:00 pm (8 pm GMT), 6th October 2007.

Hello young lovers,
It's stopped raining!! I'm taking a short break between Porto and Cologne. All's well. Thanks to all who came to La Tulipe and made it another Montreal night to remember. Thanks too to all who came to the little gig in Porto. 'Was much quieter, but intense.. See you in the chocolate factory in Cologne. Maybe I'll do "Savoy Truffle"..
Good God! Just saw that my last message was for Christmas 06! Very shoddy, so I'm pledging to make more effort in future. Ta to all who kept the faith during the "Somewhere Else" tour. It nearly killed me! All wounds and bruises are now healed (well, nearly) and I'm left with nothing but good memories. During the summer I'll be treading the boards alone once more and I'm really looking forward once again to the intimacy, the spontaneity and the uncompromising selfishness/ selflessness of h natural gigs. I won't ask you to care, but say you'll be there..
One love. One life.
These shows are solo performances by Steve Hogarth only. Additional UK & European shows are expected to follow shortly.

h NaturalLive DVD
Release Date: February 2007
Recorded March 2006
For many years, people have been asking me if I ever planned a one-man show. I told them it was a good idea. Since then, I've been a bit busy, but I found a little time in 2006, so I'm finally jumped out of the plane. This isn't necessarily a tight, well-rehearsed, "professional" show. The atmosphere dictated what happened from night to night. I took a list of songs that have been important to me. These are things I wanted to say when I was young, things I've written over the years with the Europeans, How We Live, The h band, and, of course, Marillion. This show was filmed in March at the Sheffield HUBS, and is a complete record of that night from start to finish.
