Plus here’s my latest column for Songwriting Magazine, tips on face-to-face networking for aspiring songwriters. My experience of going to the recent Americana Music UK conference made me think about how nerve wracking it can be for artists to network so here’s some tips which I hope help. Link 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.

“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
