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.
