You’ll be happy to hear that another of my tracks from “Young Runaway” is now available online to download and stream in advance of the full album release on July 8th! It’s called “Here’s to Hoping” and it’s the first single from the album. I really hope you like it!

I’ve got a fantastic gig in London this week! On Thursday night I'll be playing as a five piece band in The Ballroom at The Bedford, Balham for this year's London Folk Fest.
For a cheeky 10% discount on tickets use the code BEDFORD10 :-) I'm on just after 9pm but I'm sure it'll be a great night all round so come along from 7:30 to take in a load of great artists.
