Really excited to announce that “Anything But Easy” – the first single from my upcoming EP “Edge of Love” – will be released on 22nd February. I have been so happy with the response so far and all the airplay the single has already received. Thanks to all the radio shows that have play listed the track including Leader’s American Pie, Wrecking Ball Radio, Russ Hill Country, Acoustic Routes, Mystery Rain, The Hoedown, Country Rock Radio and Simply Country, who have made the song Track of the Month. Produced by the brilliant Jose McGill from The Vagaband and featuring the wonderful dobro from Noel Dashwood of Alden, Patterson and Dashwood it’s mastered by Mikey Shaw Recording/Mix Engineer & Dub Cavern Productions at The Crunch – Recording Studio “It has never been more easy to listen to an unknown tune. The song just invites you to listen and to keep on listening..A wonderful voice and great dobro playing.” Radio Compagnie, The Netherlands.
Thanks also to music blogs such as Building Our Own Nashville and Forever Country for spreading the word. Also W21 Music for a lovely review. More tour dates and festival announcements coming soon.
You will be able to pre-order the single via iTunes shortly. There’s also a sneak preview and download at my Bandcamp store – Pledgers, check your inboxes!

Recording for the new EP has continued and it’s been really productive and exciting. As mentioned, I am working with the super talented musician and producer José McGill – band-leader of the award-winning Vagaband – who has created some beautiful arrangements and contributed his huge music talent on an array of instruments.
I can’t wait for you to hear the new material. As well as the musicians already mentioned, there is some wonderful pedal steel from Alan Cook – who I recorded my latest Bob Harris “Under the Apple Tree” session with – and also beautiful cello from award-winning cellist Ivan McCready.
