Had a great evening at BBC Radio Norfolk this week being the Tuesday guest on Matthew Gudgin’s Drivetime Show. Loved talking all things music, my career journey so far, and also playing six of my all-time favourite songs. The interview is available to “Listen Again” here and the show is also repeated on Sunday 26th November between 1 and 2 pm. My next appearance on BBC Radio Norfolk is next Sunday where I will also be chatting to Keith Greentree on the Big Country Show, Sunday 3rd December from 2 pm.
Excited that I have just received these lovely new limited edition CDs of my EP “Reminders” recorded in New York with renowned Brooklyn producer and musician Jeff Hill. Thanks to Audiotree in Norwich for the artwork and design. Previously only available digitally, signed copies are available from the store page and at my Bandcamp
Something sweet! Here’s a brand new music video for “Trust” by Breeze Redwine. One for all the dog lovers out there. “Trust” is the title track from Breeze’s debut EP and I wrote this song about the very special bond between owners and their four legged friends
So thrilled to hear my single ‘Dreaming in Crowds’ on the Bob Harris Show on BBC Radio 2 last night. A perfect birthday treat! Listen again here, am played after The Yardbirds just after 1am! ‘Dreaming in Crowds’ is available via my Bandcamp
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
New video – Interview and performance of new song ‘Dreaming in Crowds’ which is all about working hard to chase your dreams no matter how hard. From the new EP ‘Reminders’ ~ enjoy! Thanks so much to Clive Swersky at Alive with Clive for posting and for his kinds words calling me ‘sensational and spellbinding!’
Very exciting news! ‘Reminders’ was played on the legendary ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris show on BBC Radio 2 this weekend! It was lovely to hear Bob say that they love my music at the show and that there is a ‘fantastic warmth’ to my music. Coming from a radio legend like Bob, that’s truly an honour!

Check out this live video from a session on NY Radio Show, brand new song ‘Dreaming in Crowds’. Also just had a GREAT 2 days’ recording in Brooklyn adding cello, double bass, brushes, percussion, keyboards and piano. I’ve now finished 4 new songs with the incredibly talented Jeff Hill. Jeff has worked with two of my favourite songwriters Neal Casal and Teddy Thompson and is in one of my favourite bands Hazy Malaze. He has also worked with Rufus Wainwright, Regina Spektor and is also currently recording Erin Mckeown. As well as my acoustic style, we have added some cello, double bass, brushes, percussion, keyboards and beautiful piano. As mentioned before, I have also recorded some new songs with the equally talented drummer and dear friend Dan Fadel, also in Hazy Malaze. I’m so excited about these new songs and can’t wait to share them with you!
