Due to domain name problems! my website has been down for a couple of week but, now its back.
Since my last Post i’ve been to California to work with Joe Purdy on his latest album, back to the UK to work with Billy Bragg, Emily Barker’s Band (consisting of The Dreaming Spires & Ethan Johns) at the AMAUK Awards show. And recently a small tour with Lauren Housley that ends later this week!
I will throw back to some of this stuff here but, I also want to share a little recording i made with my old Akai reel to reel player. I’m trying to get some ideas for a Steel Guitar album, any comments welcome!
I have been a bit absent on here over the past few month due to keeping busy (which any musician can be thankful for). I’ve been fortunate enough to play two brilliant shows at London’s Union Chapel with Billy Bragg and then head to Scotland for an amazing pre-xmas tour… I will re-cap on this in a later post.
I have also started a new Blog for my Photography. Over the last few months i’ve been getting back into film Photography to cut down on the amount of pictures I take and to get some better shots.
Here are some dates i’ll be playing for the rest of the year. Hope to see some people out there.

i know I haven’t posted anything in a few weeks but it’s been mainly because of the run up and tour with Lauren and the band. Tonight is the last night of the tour in Sheffield. It’s been great fun and I’ve been using the Sho~Bud on this tour. Maybe if anyone’s around tonight I’ll see you there!
Last week i had the chance to play with Lauren Housley at the Live Nation office in London. We set up the same as the radio station (see previous BBC Radio post) and played three tracks for the office workers. More exciting news from this in the future!! but, for now heres a little photo of the session… Also nice to take a small amp out for once, my cream Fender Pro Junior and Strymon Flint for a splash of Reverb.
Inbetween Billy Bragg shows, I managed to play a live session for BBC Radio London with my friend Lauren Housley. She has a great new album, deffinetly one to watch. Check out the session on the link bellow . Were on at 2hr 43mins..
