Things are already moving super fast this year! January has nearly gone and we've already got 41 gigs booked in for this year!! I'm bound to be playing a show somewhere near you soon, so make sure to check out my gigs page for listings and more details/ticket links :-)
Coming up in February:
Feb 5th - The Green Note, Camden - this is a tiny venue known for it's incredible atmosphere. If you're in London you should definitely come to this one, but make sure you book as it frequently sells out. I'm on 8:30 - 9 and doors open at 7pm. I'll be supporting a real favourite of Bob Harris - Mississippi Delta songbird, Bronwynne Brent. Grab your tickets here before they're gone!
Feb 7th - Pitchcombe Village Hall - this is a headline gig near Stroud and I'll be performing as a trio. This gig has very nearly sold out, so I'd be wary of trying to get tickets on the door. Email email@example.com or call 01453 763330 to reserve yours.
Feb 28th - Lavant House School, Chichester, West Sussex - very like the gig I did at Westbourne House last spring, there'll be drinks and nibbles and lots of music from me and my two cellists :-) For tickets -
The first opportunity to get your hands on my album will be at The Everyman Studio on March 25th, or in London at The Old Queens Head, Islington on the 26th! The album doesn't come out on iTunes until April 6th so this is your chance to be one of the first to own it. I've only recently decided to make the Everyman show a launch gig and it's almost sold out already (less than 10 tickets left), so you'd better be quick if you'd like to come along! Here's the link -
The Old Queens Head will be more of an official album launch and I'll be joint headlining with an awesome 4 piece band from London called the Kings Parade! Check them out online if you haven't heard of them before as these guys are going places. The ticket link for this gig isn't up yet but I'll be posting it soon so keep an eye out.
In other news, I filmed a new music video last week for "A Beautiful Mind", the single coming out the same day as the album itself. Can't wait for you to see it! Here's a pic for you :-)
Lastly, I'm currently choosing what merch to take on tour and I'd love to know what kind of thing you'd like to take away from a gig as a souvenir, apart from a copy of the album. If you've got any ideas/suggestions please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to get some cool stuff organised!
Bear hugs all round,
What a busy week! 1 x broken cello, 1 x broken van, 1 x BBC radio interview, hundreds of miles covered, loads of lovely new fans met, 4 gigs played! Thanks so much to everyone who came along and/or spread the word about the tour. Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich, Bradford on Avon, it was a pleasure!
I'm now off to France on holiday for a week with Tilly (of Tilly's song). Just about to board my plane in fact! When I get back I've got a gig in London at Surya, Kings Cross on the 28th so I'll see you then :-)
Have a great week!
In case you haven't heard by now, the big news of the last couple of days is that I'm off on a national support tour from March 28th to May 2nd! I'll be supporting the fabulous folk duo Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman all around the country and then doing some headline dates of my own in May. The Album will be available to buy at gigs throughout the tour and there are over 25 dates so hopefully I'll be coming to a city near you! Check out the poster below to see where we're headed :-)
My first gig of 2015 was at FlatPlanet in Soho on Wednesday - a great start to the year with a packed room and plenty of familiar faces. Thanks so much to everyone who came along and made it such an awesome evening!
This coming week I've got four gigs! My mini tour of East Anglia looks like this - 13th Jan - The Portland Arms (Cambridge), 14th Jan - The Bicycle Shop (Norwich), 16th Jan - Cult Cafe (Ipswich). Then on Jan 17th it's all the way back down South to Bradford Upon Avon for the folk and roots festival, crikey! After all that I'm off on holiday for a week, yippee! :-)
Hope 2015 has started well for you all!
