Check out my first foray into video editing on YouTube
I was totally inspired by the recent amazing BBC2 thriller 'The Fall' with Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan and decided to pair scenes from it with my song 'The Dance'. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and it's fired me up to make more...
My new album What Came Before will be released on Friday 16 March.
I'm celebrating the launch with a special live event at Bristol's Halo Bar (141 Gloucester Road, Bristol, BS7 8BA; tel 0117 944 2504), on Friday 16 March (doors 8pm).
I'll be playing with a great band of local musicians assembled especially for that night and including Katherine Martin on the cello.
We'll be playing lots of the new songs and the album will be available to buy on the night.
This album has been a real labour of love and I'm very excited to finally be at this point. After 2 years of working on it a live launch seemed like the ideal way to give the album a great send-off.
Thanks to everyone who's supported and encouraged me through this whole process - I hope some of you can make it along on the 16th.
Oh, and there's a little taster on the music player of one of the new songs Chalk Marks in the Rain...
25 May 2011 - Update
Can't believe I haven't posted here since last year. Where does all the time go? New album is moving towards the final stages. Only cello left to record and then mixing, mastering, designing the album cover, duplicating it, packaging it...oh, quite a lot still left to do then! Watch this space...well, don't watch it that closely because I clearly can't be trusted to update it regularly. But you can check out the social networking links below because I really DO update those. Honest.
