I have enjoyed the gigs lately.  From the majesty of the Black Dyke Mill, where the famous brass band got their name and still sometime rehearse, to the Musician in leciester, to the Half Moon, to my old favourite though far from home - The Railway, to Stan’s Bike Shack in a snowy South Downs.  It’s been […]

What I learned from…Part 1

(My first radio session on Tom Robinson’s 6 Music show in, I think, 2006) I am just putting the finishing touches to the next album. In the meantime, I was thinking about a recent article I read about how a lot of pop records are made these days.  As you know, multiple songwriters are involved behind […]
