Happy Holidays from Qatar

Merry holidaymas, whatever mas you celebrate, hope it’s a happy one.

I wanted to say the best present that I got was the response to this music I’m putting out [the single was just over a month ago now], thanks so much for support and the shares of the music, it was a long time coming but hopefully worth the wait.

I’m planning some lovely things for 2020 and you’ll be able to hear the whole shebang in Spring 2020!

I’m currently on tour in Doha, Qatar playing in the souq markets as a drumming robot (I-shit-you-not)…gotta pay dem bills. If you didn’t know, I’ve been studying all things Brazilian percussion for about 10 years as well as writing sad songs, so it’s a bit of a contrast. I work for a company called Global Grooves as a drummist, and I am having a blast…it’s pretty exhausting, but fun. I’ve never been to the Middle East before, so it’s a pretty incredible, eye-opening experience for me. I feel very lucky that I get to travel the world doing this stuff.

Until the new year. I will be updating and writing lots more.

Over and out.

The Crossing [Single Release]

I am so happy to release The Crossing, the title track from my first EP “The Crossing”, coming 2020 along with music video (you can see that below).

You can catch my first single on various streaming services and you can purchase on my Bandcamp below:

Big, big, big thanks go to Justin Shearn who produced and recorded this song and the others on the forthcoming EP. We spent (literally) years honing these songs, it all started off over a coffee and lots of cheese. I’m going to write more about the process (in another blog) and the journey that we went on.

Thanks to: Adam Dawson (drums) and Alec Stockton (double bass) for lending their talents on the track, you guys are Gods amongst men.

More thanks to: John Grey (who directed, shot and edited the video), Judith Chan for producing, and Louise Gibbons & Lauren Tucker for their beautiful performances as Ellie and Sarah. Thank you all support and work on the visuals, what a day that was! It’s turned out beautiful…eventually… after me and John eventually remembered what we talked about after production meetings…in the pub.

And huge thanks to, my Mom, Holly, family and friends for supporting me.

This release is dedicated to Steve Jones, who took the Crossing back in 2016.

I wish you could hear this.
