Lives & Lyrics Project…

Hello all.

Tomorrow I am in the studio recording a track I wrote as part of the ‘Lives & Lyrics’ project here in Derby.

5 songwriters from the county have been put with different social groups, to try and bring their stories to life. I was placed in a young offenders institution with kids between the ages of 14 and 17.

It was quite an eye opening experience and one that I hope I have done justice to.

As part of the project, the 5 songwriters will be performing their tracks for free, to the public.

Below are a list of dates…

Wednesday 22nd November @ The Brewery Tap, Derby, England.

Thursday 23rd November (2:30pm) @ Baby People Studios, Derby, England.

Saturday 26th November (Midday) @ Mackworth Community and Youth Centre, Derby, England.

Wednesday 30th November (4pm) @ The Quad, Derby, England.

If you are around, come say hello and we’ll have a beer!

Blue Balls Festival, Switzerland.

Hello,

I just got back from playing the Blue Balls Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland.

It has to be the greatest festival I have ever played. The organisers, the sound, the location, the crowds, all top notch.

I urge any musician out there to get on to their website, and ask for a slot! x

The difficult third album…

Oi

This week we are venturing back to our creative home, the Isle of Wight, to start work on our third studio album.

Having spent the last 3 years gigging, writing, going through band mates, having a broken leg, I am finally getting myself back down to Studio 5a, to get the new material put down.

My drummer Atticus, and bass player Matt, will spend the weekend laying the foundations for me and Steve to chuck our nonsense on top of.

The album is very different from anything I have done before. Songs like ‘Jura’ and ‘I will row’ would not be out of place in a remote Scottish drinking hole, while ‘Man on fire’ could have been written after a pilgrimage to early 90s Seattle.

OK, we would all like to write our own reviews, but I will quit there.

The album should hopefully be finished by the time I play the Shepherds Bush Empire in June. Touch wood.

In no particular order…

Wade In, Get Your Love On, The Island, I Will Row, Jura, Man On Fire, Route Of Least Resistance, Take It Off, Let The Light In, John.

Now for an album title…

 

2016 USA & European Tour Dates.

Couple of live bathroom demos for ya…

Yellow.

I get bored easily, so thought I would knock out a couple of live tunes, to fill the time.

The first is called Jura. It’s only fitting that I should write a song after my amazing experiences in the highlands, and Islands.

The second track, The Island, was written about the island that I grew up on; The Isle of Wight.

Both rough and live. But hope you enjoy.
