Album update

Thanks for all the kind comments on my Which Will music video  I am now applying the finishing touches to my debut album.

This record has been in the works for a while now and one of the main issues has been deciding which songs to include.

Of course the longer the process goes on, the more songs I write and the whole thing becomes even more of a nightmare! Thankfully I finally have a set that I am happy with.

I can’t wait to share these songs with you all.

Finally, big shout out to my good friend Liam Jordan who has given me a lot of guidance and encouragement with my music over the years. He has an amazing album out right now that you should all check out!

Stay tuned…

New music video – Which Will

New music video!

Here’s my version of Nick Drake’s timeless ‘Which Will’.

Nick’s music has been an influence on my own right from the start and this song is one of my favourites.

Enjoy 🙂

Peace Fest 2018

I’ll be performing at Peace Fest 2018 in Penzance on Saturday, September 22. My set is at 2pm. Further details below.

 

The Promise

I have performed Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The Promise’ a couple of times this week. For those who don’t know, it’s a magical song recorded during the Darkness sessions that never made it onto a studio album – shocker!!

Of course I’m a die-hard fan but I highly recommend giving it a listen. Lyrical perfection. It’s also the sequel to ‘Thunder Road’, need I say more?

I may record my own version someday, but here’s The Boss in action with my favourite rendition.

Pale Jacket feature

My song ‘Pale Jacket’ is featured on Fiona Beddow’s Words and Music show. Pretty cool!

I recorded the song back in 2014 with a great line up of guest musicians. ‘Lemonade Sea’ was also recorded during the session.

Back on the road

It’s great performing again! I have missed it. Looking forward to playing more…
