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!

Overhead Wires: The Trident! Gig, Dec 7th


event page here

 After a brief – and involuntary – spell of inactivity, it’s time to gig again and air some new songs…  And where better than at an Overhead Wires night here in Brighton specifically geared to just that.  It’s free, there’s loads of splendid acts; but don’t take my word for it, gaze on the blurb:

“The Trident” is back!!!

After enjoying a popular run from June 2012 to April 2013, we have decided to bring back our showcase dedicated purposefully to new material.

The aim of the game is to provide an intimate acoustic stage for artists to road test and try out their new songs in a relaxed atmosphere so that they can receive experience and feedback on their new works.

With 8 scheduled perfomers playing approximately 3 songs, the gig provides an excellent networking opportunity for songwriters whilst also gives music lovers a chance to check out something completely new!

Performing on 7th December (in no particular order):




Free Entry

The Quadrant, 12-13 North Street Quadrant, Brighton, BN1 3GJ

Age Restrictions:


 …To be honest, just felt too fucking lazy to type all that out.  Looks good though, doesn’t it.  Come – I have surprises in store; and may well also be my final gig this year, so be great to see some faces to greet.

Halloween GIG of inspired madness

C Hse Halloween

be afraid… but be intrigued, too

I’m a Dark Spider, apparently.  Or maybe performing solo & jumping out of a coffin at people.  Anyway, got no idea what to expect – other than it’ll be great – and here’s a link.

It’s At The Coach House, and therefore will be mental & beyond… Also ties in neatly as a celebration of Lilith coming out.
…And as an exaltation of the evil spirits of the unclean dead rising to destroy the living, of course. All good wholesome fun.

“Happy Happy Halloween, Sil-verrr Shaaamrock!”  x

Kind words from Shindig Magazine, radio play & GIG – TONIGHT

recommendation indeed – but stick around, there’s more…

Shindig Magazine had some good words for Lilith – see above (or here’s the link).

Doing a free gig in Brighton tonight at Molly Malone’s for StrungOut Music.  Onstage early, 8:30ish, which is good: working on a new EP during the day, so it’ll be back-to-back music action – when I hit the stage, adrenaline will flow.

You can hear Lilith on RoundSound Radio – biggest independent online station in the North West, apparently.  Looks like a good show, all kindsa stuff going on.  That’s from 8pm this eve.

Finally… got a nice (brief) write-up from SupaJam, complete with Soundcloud link.

So that’s 3 different ways you can check out the song and hear for yourself, since I’ll also be playing it live acoustic: have a reckon.  x

Oxjam Festival & live radio session on Radio Reverb, Oct ’15

Oxjam II

event link here

 My next gig’s in Worthing, at this multi-venue festival in aid of Oxfam on Saturday 10th Oct.  I’ll be playing a full-length set at the Oasis Lounge in the cellar bar, around 5pm – but there are loads of other acts from noon to midnight and music all over town (see the organisers’ main page for further details).

What else?  Doing a live session on Monday 12th for Pete Jones on Radio Reverb – that’s 97.2FM, 6-8pm, audio kids…  Also, might get a spin of forthcoming single Lilith.

Speaking of which: the video to that song’s featured on Emerging Indie Bands.  It’s a neat site, so have a look if you haven’t already.

A bundle of news!  Yeah, quite a buzz – and not a bad few days’ work.
