I am really looking forward to playing this lovely night ran by URBAN FOX FOLK and NOCTURNE at Ort in Birmingham. VALLEYERS and CHRIS TYE are both wonderful and I am excited to sharing the bill with them. This night has a very good reputation so please do come along and enjoy a fine evening of music, food and drinks. I will be playing around 8.15pm.
I have been busy working on a number of new songs over the last few weeks which I am starting to play at live shows. The photograph is above is a lovely one taken on Saturday at The Tin Music and Arts in Coventry when I played She Makes War’s Breakfast with Apollo night. You can see I have a new guitar, his name is Oscar! I have more live dates coming up with brilliant artists so do come along and say hello:
I am very excited that on Saturday 20th September I will be playing with the marvellous SHE MAKES WAR at THE TIN in Coventry. Those of you who were at the album launch show last November will remember how amazing She Makes War was! This is a night hosted by Laura (She Makes War) and tickets can be purchased HERE for a range of prices. I will be playing some brand new songs which I can’t wait to share you with.
I am delighted to share that I will be playing a very special show for FOLK IN A BOX on September 27th in Gloucester as part of the STRIKE A LIGHT FESTIVAL. Folk in a Box is a one to one performance in a wonderful ‘shed’ created by musicians EMILY BARKER and DOM COYTE. I am really excited about playing this special event from 4pm where I will have a 45 minute slot.
Very excited to share with you that I will be opening for DANNY AND THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLDat TOWN HALL LIVE in Kirton in Lindsey on August 1st. The band widely regarded by many and have a very dedicated following. I am really looking forward to opening for them. Ticket prices and information can be found on THIS PAGE.
I am really excited and pleased to share with you that WILD SOUND RECORDINGS, the label who works with us, have signed a huge distribution deal with PROPER DISTRIBUTION. They will be looking after digital distribution and physical releases for Wild Sound. Talking about the new deal, Polly Paulusma (Head of Wild Sound) said, “I agonised over distribution and which choice to make. It took me about a year – and many helpful conversations including with other distributors and my wonderful trade body AIM – to realise that, as with many things you over think, the answer is obvious: Wild Sound simply has to work with Proper. Just look at their roster, Richard Thompson, David Gray, Band of Horses, Eddi Reader… the list goes on. It’s our spiritual home.” Proper Distribution works with a huge range of independent record shops and also shops like Asda, Tesco and Morrisons! So you could picking up Lantern EP and Hospitality for Hope from lots of different shops in the near future!
We have also been confirmed for two festivals this summer. We are very excited to be returning to WYCHWOOD FESTIVAL on the BBC Introducing Stage on Sunday 1st June and also playing K:Fest, a vintage festival held in a Manor House in Derbyshire, on 4th July.
