WHAT A WEEKEND…LOCAL AND LIVE 2014!

To say that it was a great weekend for Tunbridge Wells music would be a huge understatement. Local & Live was absolutely amazing with venues all around the town filled with the diverse sounds of local music. The main stage in Calverley Grounds looked and sounded amazing and the whole town was buzzing with energy!

I had the privilege of playing twice during the weekend. Once on Saturday afternoon at the Beau Nash and once on Sunday at the Black Dog. Both venues were really busy and great fun to play.

To top off the personal excitement for the weekend, my brand new ‘acoustic ep’ went on sale at the Beau Nash gig. It was really surreal to see people lining up at the merchandise table to pick one up after the gig (I even had to sign a couple).

Thank you so much to everyone who made the weekend so special. Bring on Local and Live 2015!

…acoustic ep….OUT THIS MONTH!

To say that I am pretty excited would be a complete understatement…

If you’ve been to one of my gigs or spoken to me about my music at any point over the last 5 years you will have probably heard the words “my ep will be out soon!” By now you could  be forgiven for questioning the truth in this statement but I am really excited to let you know that my 4 track ‘acoustic ep’ has been sent off for duplication and will be available before the end of August.

Having recorded numerous versions of various songs that I’ve written, I have decided to go right back to basics where all the songs began; with acoustic guitar and vocals. Hopefully in the simplicity of the recordings you will be able to capture the heart behind the lyrics.

‘acoustic ep’ will be available electronically but I would highly recommend holding out for a hand printed physical copy.

I’ll be in touch soon with more details like track listing. Thank you for being so patient over the last half a decade!!!

I’m On Soundcloud (ish)

Just letting you know that I’m on Soundcloud (just click on the link below). As you’ll see I haven’t massively got into it yet but hopefully over the next few weeks I’ll put some more tracks on there (especially from the upcoming EP). Would love to hear your feedback on the songs that are up there at the moment. If you do like what you hear and think that others may do too, why not point them in my direction. Thanks 🙂

Over the last few months I really haven’t done much songwriting, but this is one of the few that I’ve  just about finished. It’s called ‘Your Eyes’ and is basically just about the sadness that I feel when I see people (particularly those closest to me) not realising their potential and instead becoming weighed down by the pressure and disappointment that life sometimes brings.

Although this little video has only got the first verse and chorus on it, my favourite part of the song is actually the bridge which says “you’ve got so much soul, I wish you could find it”.

Anyway, enough waffle, enjoy the video and I look forward to being able to play you the whole song sometime soon 🙂
