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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
The Mrs and her trusty iPhone managed to capture a couple of videos from my show with Ian McNabb, at the Liverpool Lomax.
They are rough but hopefully you will enjoy.
We are fortunate enough to have been invited back to the Czech Republic this March.
We’ll be playing three acoustic shows in Prague.

Here are a few videos from this years Wembley Arena show.
Hope you enjoy. x
Me and my pal Steve are piling over to the Czech Republic this weekend, to play a couple of acoustic shows.
