Upcoming Live Online Show

It’s been a while but I’m gearing up for another live online show!

I’ll be streaming live via YouTube and Google Plus on Sunday 21st June from 6pm (BST) and this show will have an all new format to previous ones.

As well as talking a bit about my influences and how I got into music I’ll be joined by three special guests and will perform some brand new songs with Sue Aston featuring on violin.

The show will be available to watch again on YouTube following the live broadcast.

Watch 2nd Aston Family Show

I had an amazing time performing as part of The Aston Family Show on Sunday. The show was cross-produced in the US and Cornwall and had a great panel of special guests.
I’m still finding it strange to come to terms with the overwhelming reception these shows have received so far, and how many people have connected to my family’s music around the world simply from us performing at the end of our living room!
You can check out the recording of the show below which features a couple of my own songs, ‘Way Home’ and ‘Pale Jacket’, along with a great set of other original Aston material.

Thank you to everyone that tuned in to my live online show yesterday, here’s the full recording for anyone who missed it.

Notes from Looe Music Festival 2014

I had a great time performing at Looe Music Festival yesterday! The town was packed, the atmosphere was electric and thankfully the weather was scorching.

I mixed the set up a bit, which as always was heavily devoted to my original songs. I debuted a brand new song, ‘The Artist’, along with a new cover, ‘If I Am A Stranger’ by Ryan Adams. Some of my old songs made it back into the set too with ‘See You Again’ and ‘Still Life’, both from The Way Home EP, going down well.

The full set is detailed below. Some of my songs were videoed and I also recorded the audio of the entire 45min show so I’ll release some of that material soon.


1. Way Home
2. Pale Jacket
3. For You My Friend
4. If I Am A Stranger (Ryan Adams)
5. One More Chance
6. Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High? (Arctic Monkeys)
7. Lemonade Sea
8. See You Again
9. The Other Side
10. Flight
11. Soldier Of Fortune (Deep Purple)
12. The Artist
13. Still Life


Watch guest appearance on US online show

If you missed the live Good Day Google+ show just now, you can watch the recording here. I played three songs live: ‘Lemonade Sea’, ‘For You My Friend’ and ‘Way Home’ with Sue Aston providing violin accompaniment throughout.

It was my first time being on the panel and performing on a US Google+ show and I really enjoyed it! There was some chat about spicy wine and alligator nuggets, does anyone know where I could get some of that?
