Very excited to share with you that I will be opening for DANNY AND THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD at 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!
Here is ‘Lantern’, the first track we recorded for FORTITUDE MAGAZINE : PLAYEDBARE SESSIONS a couple of weeks ago. We recorded it live in Regents Park in London.

It has been a busy old time for us recently. We went into RaW Radio to record a FOUR SONG SESSION and have recorded live tracks for the THE TIN CAN REVIEW and THE MYSTERY TRAIN RADIO SHOW. The live shows we have played have been lovely; THE MALT CROSS and MISTER KEITH ALBUM LAUNCH. The second track of our session with TALL TREE SESSIONS is now online. I [Steve] have started a new songwriters circle night in Coventry called THE CLAP HANDS MUSIC CLUB. This week we travelled to London to record two live sessions, one with FORTITUDE MAGAZINE and another with AMAZING RADIO, both of which will be online soon. Finally we released a collection of 5 live songs called the MERCI BEAUCOUP EP exclusively to our mailing list, THE STYLUS FOLK.
We recently supported the wonderful Chains at The Tin in our home city of Coventry. Here is a live video of Chasing the Light from our debut album. We hope you enjoy and share.
