Playing Outside & Animations

I was down in London at the weekend playing a private gig at the Kensington Roof Gardens.  It was a beautiful occasion and a funny thing to be up on the rooftops of Kensington surrounded by Flamingos.  We had the classic problem too…will it rain…will it be sunny…I set up the PA, piano, all the […]

Cornbury Video & Update

Whilst I was playing at the Cornbury Music Festival this summer Matt Green filmed me singing a new song of mine wandering the site.  You’ll see at one point I nearly took someone’s head off with my guitar as they ran past me.  The headliner was Bryan Adams, a joyous drunk evening that was.  I […]

Merry Christmas

Well, I had hoped to get this new album before Christmas, but alas it takes fuckin ages to get songs the way you want em when you are recording.  You write them, then come the arrangements.  And that’s why rock bans of old would spend months and months in studios, because you can arrange things […]
