Another free download for you and here’s a live acoustic cover of a beautiful Passenger song. The lyrics really  resonated with me  and I love his writing. It  was exciting that the artist himself took the time to listen and described the version as ‘lovely’. Listen and download here

New French Song Appelle-moi, UK Festivals, Maverick and Latitude

Have had a great time performing at some big music events and festivals including Ipswich Music Day, one of the largest free one day music festivals in the UK. As well as enjoying some great music, I also ended up doing sets at Maverick Festival and Latitude Festival. I was also part of a panel during the Americana Music Association UK conference that went really well and I gained some great feedback after discussing the use of social media.
