New Single – ‘Turns to You’ – Out Now!

By |May 15th, 2020|Categories: News Archive|

Happy Friday and Happy Release Day!! I’m donating all proceeds to Haven House Children’s Hospice (a truly wonderful charity doing the most amazing work!) so please do check out the download/streaming links here…and if you wanted to give a little more then you can do so via my Bandcamp page. I’m unbelivably proud of this song and I’m so excited for you to hear it!

The song was recorded and produced by Jack Longman at Buff Records in London Fields back in September last year. I’m so thankful for Jack’s time & talent and for putting up with me after many hours in the Studio! He’s also just an all-round top chap (who just so happens to like my songs!). So that’s it, I can’t wait to play this song live when it’s safe to do so.. for now I hope you can enjoy it from your homes. Stay safe..

That’s it, I’ve given in…next Tuesday 5th May I’ll be doing a little live stream concert over on my Facebook Page at 8pm. Just for 30mins or so – it would be great to see you! It will be very casual..I’ll play a few songs (I’ll even do my best to remember the words) and I’ll do a little Q&A.

Spent the last couple of days recording some new songs with the mighty producer Jack Longman at Buff Records.

Very proud of these new songs and I can’t wait for you to hear them…
