Sarah Darling Show, Americana UK Conference and Awards

Very excited that I’ll be supporting the wonderful Nashville singer songwriter Sarah Darling at The Waterfront Studio on March 15th as part of her first UK headline tour. Having supported her last year on the A Night in Nashville tour I know it’s going to be an amazing show.

Photos below are from another great time at this year’s AmericanaFest conference and awards which I was covering for iSing Magazine. The Awards, hosted by Bob Harris, were full of wonderful performances including Lifetime Achievement winner Robert Plant and Trailblazer recipients Mumford and Sons.

AMA-UK Review, BBC Introducing, Artist Bracelet, Compilations

Am all recovered from a great couple of days at the AMA-UK Conference and Awards and my review about my inspiring time there is in the Columns section of the site. Also been playing this sweet song from winning of Best International Album, Sam Outlaw and ‘Country Love Song.’


Very exciting that ‘Remember Me’ from ‘Another Place and Time’ is featuring on this weekend’s BBC Introducing! Lovely to have their support.

Here’s the clip from the show, thanks to Joe Se!

Another one of my songs from the EP ‘Music and the Mountains’ is on this lovely Americana compilation, The House Concert 8th Birthday Collection from Medicine Show Records and available on BandCamp.

Huge thanks to Basement Tapes for creating this beautiful bracelet for me! Made from my used Taylor guitar strings it’s one of their stunning Artist bracelets. It’s available to order via their website and I’ve been proudly wearing it every since!

Another compilation that I’m proud to feature on, charity release ‘A World of Hope’ from Postcards for Peace will be officially released on March 10th. You can also order it now here.




Ryan Adams at Rough Trade, AMA UK Conference and Awards

It’s been really cool to start the year enjoying some exceptional music. I was lucky to be among an intimate crowd getting to see Ryan Adams preview brand new material from his upcoming album ‘Prisoner’ at Rough Trade East. His new songs are amazing and I love single ‘To Be Without You’ so much I’ve recorded an acoustic cover of it:

Also in my music columnist role I’ve had a fun couple of days enjoying the AMA UK Conference and Awards. Met so many wonderful people all celebrating Americana music. The conference had some great panels and a fascinating conversation between Bob Harris and wonderful songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter.
