Daphne Guinness and Jim Stapley releases

Hi everyone, some exciting and long awaited releases have been surfacing lately.

I had the great pleasure of working with the incredible Daphne Guinness on her debut album. Daphne is such a down to earth and inspiring lady and I’m over the moon I had the opportunity to work with her and once again with Tony Visconti. Everyone involved in the project is world famous (except me!) and features the likes of Steve Ferrone, Gail Ann Dorsey, and Henry Hey.

The first single ‘An Evening in Space’ was released with a video, filmed and directed by David LaChapelle (yet another shameless name drop!). I cannot wait for the album, but until then here’s the clip. It has already created quite a stir and received critical acclaim:-

In other news, my good friend and vocal powerhouse Jim Stapley has an album out on Mita Records entitled ‘Long Time Coming’ (and it has been…it’s not just a clever name!). This was yet another dream project for me and I feel very lucky to have had a chance to work with Jim and the rest of his band. We’ve been touring over the last year including Croatia, San Tropez and most recently Austria. It’s always a blast and a great joy to be a part of. Check out the video for Laid to Waste below and grab a copy of the album on Amazon or iTunes, you won’t regret it!

 That’s all for now, thanks as always for tuning in!
