New Beginnings

StudioMay16

We’ve started recording a new song – and what better way to begin than with Paul Beavis on drums. I love Paul’s ideas, instinct and energy, and the something extra he brings to every session. This song I hope will mark a change in my approach and sound, so I can’t wait to get the track complete and share it with you.

River

December 16th, 2015 · Uncategorized

Merry Christmas! Here’s a new cover of ‘River’ by Joni Mitchell.

 

This version of River was recorded live, with Steve Smith playing a very old piano that had been in storage for years, which we moved in recently. The tuning had fallen really flat, but Chris the tuner worked his magic and gently brought it up (very gently, 100-year-old strings are brittle!). Steve played the song beautifully, and it was great, after all this time, to hear and record it.

Whoops I Bought A Martin

July 17th, 2015 · Uncategorized

It’s been a dream to own a Martin for years and I am now the proud owner of a 00-18V. I gigged my faithful Tanglewood for a decade (!), so you could say a change was due. As soon as I held it, it felt right, and when I played it I was sold. Martin Pics
