Write & Record

IMG_8685.JPG

Say hello to Linda! She's one of my wonderful pledgers who pledged towards the new album and opted to come and write and record with Jez and I! She flew over from Ireland this week especially! I've been in the studio with her the last couple of days, working on one of her songs 'To Be a Woman'.  Today we (including 'studio dog') took our pre-production and arrangement over to Skyline with Jez and came away with a rather lovely finished song (which is currently stuck in my head, good sign Linda!). It's been a very busy, but productive two days! It's also been lovely to meet one of my brilliant fans in person! 

Darbuka!

Here’s Rami and I in the studio at Surrey Arts HQ in Guildford recording some Darbuka on three tracks for Wide Sky! This guy is such an amazing player! While chatting he told me he’s only just started playing again since his family was forced to flee the violence in Syria seven years ago! Wow…. He’s such an inspirational individual, with a real love and passion for music. It was an absolute honour to work with him, and I can’t wait for you to hear the results! 

Tunes In The Chapel

I'm very pleased to announce that I'll be putting on another special candlelit acoustic music night at St. Peter's Church in Old Woking on the 23rd September!

The last one was an absolute joy, with some amazing acts in an absolutely stunning location! This year we have  
Woking-based 'Sour Kix' who have been championed by Chris Evans appearing at Carfest North and South for BBC Children in Need as well as performing on TFI Friday!

Southampton 'folk bird' Lucy Kitchen who's played across Europe and at Glastonbury Festival!

Plus the newly formed Hampshire-trio featuring singer songwriter
Nick Tann, The Nick Tann Trio who have been enjoying BBC6 Music airplay recently!

As well as yours truly! I'll be premiering new songs from 'Wide Sky' so don't miss it!

This Wednesday I headed over to the Radio Woking studios to chat to the We Love Woking show and do a couple of live performances! We talked about my roots, influences, mental health issues which are featured in some of my songs (as it's Mental Health Awareness Week) and the new album! If you missed it you can listen back here!
