The Lastest

Hey everyone!

I had a great time on the road with Jim Stapley back in May. Jim was doing a radio tour around Wales and the North of England and promptly blew them away with his killer pipes! I was very happy to be invited along by Jim to lend some acoustic guitar and mandolin to the cause. He and I also had a few shows with Kenney Jones in The Jones Gang so what was a very brief trip to the UK for Jim turned out to be very productive and busy indeed!

Here’s a live clip from one of the radio spots:-

June and July saw me perform with the amazing Daphne Guinness with a new, awesome band line up. We did a few secret shows including one at the St Moritz Club in Soho which has a very old school, rock/punk vibe. I loved this and we performed some really great sets. I’m very much looking forward to performing again with this band in the future.

Another favourite of mine, not only to perform with but to spend time with also, Mollie Marriott has also been back in the studio recently recording some live tracks at Moloko studios. These sessions were great fun and they should be ready to share in the coming months. I’m excited to see the finished product.

And last but not least, I’ve now got some of my own recordings available on the Reverbnation player (linked to my music page). I’d love for you to check them out and let me know what you think!

All the best and thanks for stopping by.

Spring Time!

Hi everyone

Hope you’re enjoying the start of Spring!

Here’s a cool track from Mollie Marriott’s upcoming album recorded live at Dean Street Studios in Soho.

Mollie and I also did a great live session for BBC London for the Jo Good drive time show.

Below is the link for Jim Stapley’s acclaimed cover of Rhianna’s ‘We Found Love’ which was recorded live a few months back at RAK studios. The track is available on itunes and Spotify. Do listen and share!

And finally here’s a behind the scenes look at Daphne Guiness’ epic track ‘Evening in Space’ produced by Tony Visconti and directed by David LaChapelle, which I had the privilege to play some guitar on (on the audio not in the video!).

Thanks for tuning in, more updates soon!
