January 2016

Rest in Peace to the Starman. Enough said by all really, but I was able to celebrate David Bowie’s life with the rest of the good people who came to visit his birth town in Brixton. It’s a testament to the community too that opened its doors to everyone, and so many of the venues played his music through the night.

RIP also Alan Rickman, Otis Clay, Glenn Frey and Dale Griffin. January seems like a bleak time of year but I’m hoping that you are having a good one so far.

I visited Wandsworth Radio the other day to talk with Andrew Green on @NextUp_Radio about Blood Red Sun and was blown away by how welcome Andrew and Anna made me. I performed Icicles live and they also played Blood Red Sun and Underwater featuring Scott Matthews.

December 2015

It’s nearly Spring! Ok, it isn’t but it’s good to stay positive. Anyway, thank you so much for all of your support so far. We had the soft album launch at the Half Moon in Putney and it was amazing. With John Hogg on vocals, bass and guitar, Sean Genockey on guitar, bass and percussion, Dan Kavanagh on drums, vocals and percussion and Danny Keane on cello. I loved every second and saw faces that I hadn’t expected to see. A bit like a birthday party but better as no one could talk apart from me ;p

I have decided to push back the release date to the mid September 2016 as I’d like to work on the artwork and other aspects. In the meantime, myself, Sean and Dan went to Soho Radio to talk with Tony Moore and to play a couple of the songs. You can hear the interview here:

May 2015

Hello lovely friends,

I’m about to record my music with Sean Genockey and its getting really exciting so do excuse if I’ve been less than communicative. In these last couple months since my Scottish mini-tour, I’ve played at the Slaughtered Lamb for a charity event to help my friend John Butterfield raise funds and awareness for the Epilepsy Society, and he has just cycled from London, UK to Mont Blanc in France. This last Saturday I performed at the Drawing Room as last minute support for Ruarri Joseph check out the gig here:
