Out now! The new single ‘Dreaming in Crowds’ available via Bandcamp plus new video coming too! Single produced by Jeff Hill, photography by Claudia Taveira Photography.

“The production quality is superlative..’Dreaming In Crowds’ is a gently flowing harmonic beauty with a kind of Carole King feel, without in any way sounding like the legendary singer-songwriter.” Maverick Magazine ****

“the crown jewel on this new EP. Dreaming In Crowds is a real singer/songwriter song. It has depth, both in lyrics and arrangement and tells a heartfelt story in which everyone will recognize something.” Inner Ear Media, The Netherlands

Excellent new review for ‘Reminders’ from Maverick Magazine

Brilliant new review of the ‘Reminders’ ep. Thanks to the excellent Maverick Magazine. A thrill to be compared to one of my songwriting heroes, Carole King!

‘I was taken aback at the maturity in both her vocals and songwriting…The production quality is superlative, the songs exceptionally well-written, especially the opening “Reminders” with the intuitive lyrics. “Dreaming In Crowds” is a gently flowing harmonic beauty with a kind of Carole King feel, without in any way sounding like the legendary singer-songwriter. Here’s a young lady who’s blossomed into a mighty fine singer-songwriter deserving of the widest possible recognition. I think it’s time that she took the plunge and recorded a full album with similar quality songs and production as this … it would be a world-beater.’

Happy Christmas! Festive Interview and New Video ‘I Believe in Father Christmas’ »

Had a really busy and productive week, had lots of fun filming a music video, recording new material and also recording a live session with Future Radio.

Plus here’s a brand new video now online! live performance I did last weekend of my Christmas cover plus a festive interview. Thanks to Alphabet Bands, Session Productions and the lovely House Cafe in Norwich.
