Rockwood tonight

Hey everyone!

I am delighted to announce that we will be taking to the stage tonight Rockwood Music Hall (stage 1) , February 29th at 9pm. With a really successful show under our belts at The Living Room earlier this month, and with the thought of an album launch not to far away, the live set has really been rocking of late! Now i’ve always been told that on leap day, women have the right to propose marriage, so if I dont get at least one proposal on the night I will be sorely disappointed! Please tell a friend, come along, sing along, and make it a special night.

In other news, I am honored to have been asked to open for the very talented Duke Special at the Mercury Lounge on March 9th. I will be on stage at 8.30, and this time around it will be a solo set. You find details on the full line up and purchase tickets here .
I find it hard to believe how much I have achieved in the short space of a year since moving to New York. In particular, so many great relationships have been formed and this week began the preparations for my second music video, another collaboration with the very talented folks over at Buffalo Picture House Productions . This new video will be for a track taken from my yet to be released fourth EP. More specific details coming soon on the video and on the album launch…
For listening good people. See you at the shows!

Last Wednesday

Just a little word on our show at the Living Room on Wednesday night.

The Living Room is one of those venues that I found myself attracted to when I first moved to Brooklyn just over a year ago. There are plenty of occasions when I play live with a full band that we really rock it out, but sometimes it gets really quiet. I’ve always enjoyed those pin-drop silence moments at a show when the band brings it right down, and you’re in the audience and you are almost scared to cough or sneeze… You can only really get those moments when the room allows for it. The Living Room is one of those rooms. On Wednesday we had plenty of those moments, and I cant thank everyone enough for making the effort to come out and make it such a special night.

Our Set List was as follows:

1. Building a picture
2. Always to blame
3. Come of age
4. Fair Weather
5. Simple Gesture
6. It slows down
7. Training up my soul
8. Closing Doors
9. Running Out

To everyone at the Living Room, thanks guys for making rock n roll just that little bit less stressful. That was only our second show at the venue, and it felt just as fresh as the first time we played there. Heres to a hundred more shows.

We played three unreleased tracks on Wednesday. One thing that really gives any songwriter encouragement is when people are asking where they can get their hands on the new songs… surely that can only be a good sign. I’ve got some plans in the pipeline but for the meantime you will all just have to come to a show to hear the new material… win win!

And so on that note I am delighted to remind everyone that we have another February show, this time at Rockwood Music Hall (Lower East Side) on February 29th @ 9pm. Here is the Facebook Event Page with all the important details!

If you love live music, then keep supporting it! –

you guys rock
