Enjoyed an amazing gig recently at Norwich Arts CentreEthan Johns and The Black Eyed Dogs. It was so lovely – and a real treat – to also interview Ethan for Songwriting Magazine. He has been a real music hero having produced some of my favourite records including “Heartbreaker” and “Gold” by Ryan Adams. It was also great to catch up with the band’s fabulous Georgina Leach who played on my album “Lost Again” back in the day – her first album session recording! Look out for my interview with Ethan appearing in Songwriting Magazine soon.

So excited to announce a London gig! Playing the lovely award-winning Green Note for my dear friends Black Cat Music Promotions Limited on 4 December as special guest for the brilliant No Coward Soul. Hope to see some London buddies! x
