It's been a while :-/
It's been a tough time with Christmas & New Year, and then January, 12 months :'( It hasn't been easy and won't be getting better because without TIm it's always going to be horrible. I hate it, but I love Tim so much and I love the label. Tim once said that he would want the label to continue if anything ever happened to him . . . . . I may be quiet but I am always working away at something with Vent / Somehow. Designing covers and... other artwork, communicating with current / new and prospective artists, merchandise, outside companies, websites, orders, packaging, publishing, accounts, etc. etc. etc. the list goes on.
Please bear with me.

I just want you all to know that things are progressing with Vent and we will have new releases coming soon as well as more information on current releases.


Thank you for your patience.




New release coming soon . . . this will be the soundtrack from BlootGeven, a movie by StringStrang currently being performed on tour.

I would like to thank all of you who have contributed to this compilation for Tim. I want to thank everyone for being so patient with me and so understanding. This release is so special, it had to be perfect. Everyone has been so supportive and shared so much love and respect for Tim. 
He would be amazed - actually speechless perhaps - at the love, support and kindness that has gone into this compilation.

I thank everyone; artists who have contributed music, art and words, I thank all of you who have supported me and continue to support me through these difficult times, and I thank everyone who has shown support, love and understanding to the label.

Tim will never be forgotten and the label will continue in his name, in his honour, with all much deserved respect going to Tim David Brice. 

Thank you all so much for everything. xx

It would seem that someone has stopped Tim's Facebook account. Whether this was done purposefully, in error or if Tim's account has been hacked I don't know. 
Either way it's pretty damn shit ! I'm outraged by this and will find out who it was.

You can cut off my fbook posts to Tim but I will never let go of him and no-one can change that. Tim and I chose to be together because we are in love and want to spend our lives together. No-one can take that away.
