Excited to announce my new single and new video for “The Last Song”. After years in such a difficult industry with setback after setback I wrote this song at the point of realising how important the people around me had become. Those that had already noticed me for who I was. I chose a hitchhiking theme for the video as i thought it perfectly mirrored the regular disappointment but the one constant of home or family always remains :) here it is:

Brand New Song

August 5, 2014 in News, Single

Here’s a new track that I’ve been working on that I hope to put on the next album. Would love to know your thoughts?

There are boys I have met whilst growing up that refuse to be faithful and treat women like accessories. I think it’ s a common term but we call them players where I live. I have noticed that years down the line their reputation makes finding love quite difficult even though they may have changed their outlook on the opposite sex. I had a mate in a similar situation and felt quite sorry for him so i wrote a song :)

Hope you like it

On’t Sofa Session

June 12, 2014 in Uncategorized

We recently took a trip  to London to record a few songs at On’t Sofa Studios. The setup is incredible and I’m a big fan of their work. This is the first video from the day. A cover of “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol but we’ve given it a bit of oomph in the chorus. Hope you like it :)

The Cutest Instrument on Earth!

Can anyone guess what I have been learning from the title?????

On a recent busk a group of loyal supporters (big ups The Cardiff Crew) bought me a Ukulele and signed it with all their names as a gift so I have started to learn a few simple chords and on a recent trip to Canada Lake Lodge we filmed a little cover of Riptide by Vance Joy for you. Shortly after upload i had a tweet fromthe artist to say he enjoyed it! WOW! Big THANKS for the present and hope you enjoy :)

Supporting Razerlight!!!

You may have seen on my last post we recently won a Battle of the Bands competition. It was a spur of the moment invite whilst on a busk in Gloucester and the perfect example of hard work meeting opportunity. If the prestige of winning wasn’t enough we are now included in this amazing festival called Sportsbeat headlined by Razerlight. I feel so proud to have my name among all these great acts :) sportsbeat

Right Place, Right Time

April 14, 2014 in competition, Covers, News

This weekend we decided to busk in Gloucester whilst on our travels and as usual had a lovely warm welcome from the locals. I always think to myself that you never know who’s listening during busks and on this occasion we were being listened to by a local promoter and festival organiser. At the end of our set he approached for more details and coincidentally a band had dropped out of his “Battle of the Bands” competition that day. He invited us along to take part but these events are normally determined by the amount of people you bring and i was aware that the other bands would be a lot bigger and much more prepared so we exchanged numbers while I had a chance to think. After we got out of the cold and had a bite to eat we decided we had nothing to lose and started to plan our set. A few hours later we arrived at guildhall, as i expected we were up against 4 and 5 piece bands with full drum kits and quite a lot of support in the audience. The talent was incredibly high and all content was original so there was a little extra pressure but I love performing so I was looking forward to the chance. We got up to perform with just our guitar and tambourine which seemed so stripped back in comparison but we received a great reaction from the audience and despite the audience consisting of the other acts and their friends everyone got involved and we seemed to make a great impression. Unfortunately I couldn’t wait around for the result but a phonecall that night revealed that we WON!!!! here’s an article in the local paper:

Here’s the title track of my debut album “The Pavement is my Stage”. The songs about my struggles and setbacks in the music industry so far and my determination to succeed. I’ve slowed it down and stripped it back so i can really express how I have felt along my journey. really hope you enjoy it!
