I've been slightly delayed in my first blog of 2015 due to the dreaded lurgy (honestly, what is this thing???). So here's my first chance to have a proper look at the date and realise that 2015 is the ten year (??!!) anniversary of quite a few pinnacle events in my now well established music career, how to make you feel old eh? And where to start?! Well.....I guess firstly with SXSW, yes 2005 was the first of many trips I made over the the US starting with that rather wonderful festival back in March at the tender age of 23, don't I look young? It wasn't the only trip I made that year, 2005 was the year for traveling, with an impromptu trip to Barcelona, a writing trip to Switzerland with THS Music and another US performance and writing session in Boston. Yep, it was quite a year, I can't believe it was that long ago!

Onwards and upwards, 2014 was a great year for gigs and I had a blast performing at You Bloom, The Sound Lounge, the Round Church, supporting John Wheeler, and at the Classics events I played at. I also had some great exposure through BASCA for 'River Man'. A huge thank you to all of you who have been a part of it!

2015 will be there year of some new material which is waiting in the wings, I've just got to work out what to do with it.........
