December gig advance notice – supporting I, Ludicrous @ Green Door Store

Dec gig flyer

event link here

 This is waaay early… but advance warning of an Xmas gig I’m doing in Brighton, courtesy of Spinning Chilli Presents.

As you can see from the flyer above, it’s supporting I, Ludicrous (for the second time…) and Helen McCookerybook.

Been trying out a lot of new songs lately, and looking into working with other musicians again – so I can promise something you won’t have seen before.  Stick it on your advent calendar!

Self Possession free EP (reprised)


Here’s a free-download EP from back in Feb 2015, now available on Bandcamp – have a listen.  It’s a bit more lo-fi and unpolished than the stuff I’ve commercially released of late… a direction I’d like to go back in

WARNING: contains unpleasant time signatures all out of whack


another live song, up close & personal

A charged atmosphere, a snide anti-Brexit dig (via Mel Brooks) and a tiny, tiny guitar.  In The Evil Empire at the final open mic, Northern Lights: lovely evening all round.  It was raw, it was intense, it was dirt-cheap and 100% Really Something Real.  Words don’t often fail me, but here… Well, take a look.
