"One of the best guitarists I've ever worked with"
Tony Visconti - Legendary Producer and Musician

News - April 2014

Greetings! Time again for another installment of “what I’ve been up to”

Just received some very exciting news that Jim Stapley's track 'No Good Reason' was just played on BBC radio 2. It's a killer song which I was lucky enough to have contributed some guitar and vocal work to. The album is earmarked for release this May.

Here's a video of us playing the track on stage at the Harley Davidson rally in Austria last year...

I’ve also been having an awesome time lately collaborating with a very talented artist, Jennifer Clarke. She has an absolutely stunning voice and the perfect songs to match. We’re working on some tracks at the moment, which are sounding beautiful.

Jennifer’s new album ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ is available now on iTunes and I highly recommend it. It also features a couple tracks co-written with some amazing talent including Grammy Award-winning songwriter Marcus Hummon.


In other news, I’ve received a few nods this month from the Nashville Songwriters Association, in particular for two new songs. I’ve been credited as ‘One To Watch’ due to my ‘promising and unique writing skills.’ It’s truly ego swelling stuff! But seriously, I am thrilled to have been recognised again by this great organisation. I am going to demo these tracks soon and share them in the next few weeks with a view to recording another EP sometime this year.

That’s all for now, thanks again for tuning in. Hope you check back again soon
