A Long Way Back To The Light…

Thursday 28th December 2017

Morning All! It’s been a few weeks since I posted, so I thought I’d give an update. I now feel fully recovered from my tonsillectomy and that can only mean one thing – getting gigs back into the calendar, starting tonight! If you head across to the Live Shows page, you’ll see I’m playing at the Penny Black in Tamworth tonight. I’m looking forward to a hometown gig to see if my throat will hold up for a few songs!

I’m also on the look out for new places to play in 2018, so if you come across anywhere please let me know on Facebook, Twitter or via email on the Contact/FAQ page.

Thanks for popping along!

A Long Road Out To Recovery…

Sunday 5th November 2017

I’ve been wondering at what point I should post this update. If you have been checking, you will notice I only have the one gig lined up between now and the end of 2017. 2017 has been a quiet year due to changes in personal circumstances – it’s amazing how much time a baby takes up! And to add to this, I’m due to go and have my tonsils removed on Friday. I’m not sure how long the recovery process will be, and I aim to keep my last gig date, but that only gives me 3 weeks to be fully recovered! Wish me luck, and I’ll see you soon.

The Narrowboat Sessions

Wednesday 13th September 2017

Morning all,

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to meet up with the lovely folks from The Narrowboat Sessions and record 3 songs for them. Last night the first song was released on Facebook, and here is the video:

Please head over to The Narrowboat Sessions Facebook page and see the wonderful work they do supporting local music!

Y Not Festival 2017 – Updated

Monday 7th August 2017

So, some of you may have seen that Y Not was cancelled due to the excessive mud. I am completely gutted about this as I was really looking forward to playing on the Sunday lunchtime (the organisers cancelled the festival overnight on Saturday). Hopefully I will return next year…

Friday 21st July 2017

Two years ago I was lucky enough to grab an open mic slot on the Creative Intentions with Furthest From The Sea Acoustic tea tent stage. This year I am back on the same stage, but not with an open mic slot, with a full slot! You can find me live on Sunday 30th July at 12noon.

Godiva Festival

Wednesday 21st April 2017

News news news news.

Festival season is upon us and I’m excited to announce that I will be appearing at Godiva Festival 2017, on the Acoustic Stage on Saturday 8th July at 5pm! I look forward to seeing you down the front!

Happy Hump Day

Wednesday 31st May 2017

It’s the middle of the week. Luckily it’s only a short week, thanks to the Bank Holiday. Although sadly it was the last Bank Holiday until the end of August. Anywhoo, we’ve added some more gig dates to the calendar over the next couple of weeks: mostly hometown dates but we are also working some gigs a bit further afield too! Maybe even a European date! Who knows.

Anyway, back to the daily grind!

Gigs Gigs Gigs

Monday 24th April 2017

This year is flying by, and we’ve not had much in the calendar so far. Sadly, one of our promoters, Ian Bourne, has fallen ill recently, so our gigs at Coventry Cross have been cancelled. We hope that Ian gets well soon and look forward to playing at one of his events in future.

We do have some alternate irons in the fire though, and we’ll keep you up to date via Facebook when we know bits and bobs!


Tuesday 31st January 2017

Wow, has it really been over a month since our last update? It appears it has! So 2017 is here, and Dryanuary is almost up. That means my dry month of gigs is over and hopefully Jon and I can get out and play some more shows!

The first of those is going to be at the Actress & Bishop in Ludgate Street, Birmingham next Wednesday (8th February).

Hopefully then the calendar will start to fill up with dates!

Check back soon!

Merry Christmas

Tuesday 20th December 2016

So it’s been a quiet end to the year. Thank you all for your support over the past months and to everyone who bought Tea With The Queen. We are still working on getting the EP released in 2017 and a bunch of gigs in the diary!

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year!

See you in 2017!
