Big thanks to John Daly and the Awareness For Autism family, for letting me be part of their charity event.

Unfortunately my on the field performance ended after 6 minutes, when my groin tore while running on to a through ball from Alan Smith.

Still, it was lovely to be part of the event, and to perform some tunes at the after party.

Next year hopefully, if invited, I will have more of an impact on the field.

AFA Charity Event

I am performing at this years AFA Charity event in Nottingham.

I will be playing an acoustic set at Saltbox Nottingham in the evening, but more importantly, I will be putting my boots back on for the first time in years, as part of that afternoons charity football match.

If you are in the area, check it out and support the cause.

Slovenia.

Had an amazing time in Slovenia. Audience in Ljubljana were lovely.

I had the pleasure of staying on the shore of Lake Bled. I would recommend that place to anyone! Beautiful.

Was great to spend some quality time with my Dad and Brother, too.

Squaddie Reunion…

Ayup.

Many years ago, I became a musician in a bar called The Royal Squadron, on the Isle of Wight. A legend called Dan Damage gave the kids somewhere to play, and it became a Mecca for Isle of Wight talent, and Isle of Wight pissheads.

On Wednesday the 21st December, there will be a reunion, with several bands getting back together to perform again for the first time in something like 15 years.

I will be performing an acoustic set, but will also be joining a ‘super band’ to perform a couple of covers that I played all those years ago.

I have to confess that these particular tracks were easier to sing before my balls dropped, but I will give it my best!

If you are Isle of Wight based and fancy a laugh, come along!

Amsterdam

Am packing up the old guitar, and heading over to Holland in the morning.

Dead excited to play to a whole new audience. Was in Estonia last week and had a real blast.

Next year is looking even bigger with shows all over the Globe. As soon as I confirm exact venues, I will post them on the shows page.

Lives & Lyrics Project

Ayup.

I have spent the last two Fridays in a young offenders institute just outside Derby. I am lucky enough to be involved in a musical project called ‘Lives and Lyrics’.

The idea of the project is to take stories from different areas of society, and put them into song. Other musicians are with different communities across the County. At the end of the project, we will release an album and tour the songs around the local area.

It has been an eye opening experience, and now I need to put pen to paper and do these kids justice.

I will post updates and samples as they come!

Can’t wait to see you all again soon. x

Hello!

After a quiet few months, I am finally back on the road in August, September and October.

I’ll be playing some shows in Islay and Jura with my good pal Jono, before hitting Germany for some shows in and around Munich, before teaming up with Ian McNabb for a few dates across the UK.

The full list is here.

If you are about, lets have a few jars.
