Liverpool Acoustic Festival – 19/03/16

Hey all,..

Lots of squirreling little plans going on here that I’m excited about for 2016.

Creative, collaborative, proactive..

The most immediate is my involvement in Liverpool Acoustic Festival.  This is a weekend packed full of acoustic artists held in Unity Theatre and Philharmonic Music Rooms.  I’m made up to be on a line – up with lots other fantastic artists including Marcus Bonfanti and Dave O’Grady.  The festival runs all weekend but my performance is on Sat 19th March in The Music Room – Philharmonic, I’ll be on at 7.15pm and will be road testing some new tunes.. Get your tickets.

I’m also very honoured to be invited as part of a panel discussion with Liverpool Acoustic at Unity Theatre at 5pm – 6pm on the subject ‘Female Is Not A Genre’..This, I believe has sprung from a very well written piece by songwriter Roxanne De Bastion last year.  I’m in good company for this sitting alongside Roxanne De Bastion, Kaya Herstadt Carney and Eleanor Nelly.

I hope to see some of you there!

Other news on the collaborative front is my co-written track ‘Sharks’ with Operation Lightfoot (Luke Moore)… the track is now recorded and finished and sent for mastering.  I’m excited, really excited about this track from beginning to end.  It was great to be asked, to work with Luke and Jon (Crosstown Studios), to perform with other Lightfooters and now just to hear the finished product puts a big smile on my face.  I loved working with strings on this one! I will be making some noise when it’s release time….

I’ll also be making some noise soon…. All will be revealed in due course!

 

Until then, stay creative and with your heart

Blue Blood

Well Helloooo February!

A few months back I was invited into the cover of Blues Matters for their Blue Blood section.  The magazine came out in December and here I am telling tales of my musical journey, my inspiration and songwriting.  Blues Matters does a lot for the British Blues scene and for people like myself who don’t quite fit into a traditional category.

I also had the pleasure of playing the Blues Matters stage at Jaks this year at Skegness Butlins for the 2015 Great British Rock & Blues Festival. Good times and a great gig to start the year on 🙂  Great opportunity to write some new songs! My set list is growing by the week these days….

The next gig for this year for me is 27th Feb at Liverpool Acoustic 6th Birthday.

See you there!
