18th January 2013 - Next Show: 29 January @ Power's Bar, Kilburn
I'm pleased to say that, after 6 months of inactivity, I'll be playing my next show on Tuesday 29th January. The venue will be Power's Bar, and it's totally free.
Things will kick off from 7.30pm and there will of course be plenty of musical entertainment on the night - have a look at the event listing on the Power's Bar website here for details of all the acts.
I'll mostly be playing some old songs to get myself back into the swing of performing live. It would be awesome to see you there.
Any questions - email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
23rd February 2012 - New Video - 'SOS'
So back in the depths of winter, I went out to play a few songs on South Bank with a guy called Jack Ayers, an expensive camera, one very cheap microphone (we had an expensive one, but it didn't plug into the camera properly..) and a guy called Pablo. Here's one of the tracks we recorded, enjoy!
As you might have noticed, I've been hiding away for most of the winter. But fear not, I've been humming new songs to myself on the tube, scribbling lyrics in meetings with investment banks and planning like never before.
There's more to come.
2nd November 2011 - Monday 7th November - The Old Queen's Head, Islington
I'm pleased to announce that I'll be playing a show on this coming Monday 7th November. The venue is The Old Queen's Head in Islington.
Entry is £4 on the night or I can add you to a £3 guestlist, just send me an email to be added.
Ace. I look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, here's a video of a funny kitten:
11th September 2011 - September's Here
So it's September, here's what I got up to in August:
\\\\\\\\ Website Redesign
So if you're reading this, you'll probably see that my website has undergone a few changes. It's not been tested completely yet, but everything should be working - why not have a stroll around the site and tell me if anything doesn't work (Many hands make light work and all that..). In fact, I've added a 'Contact' page to make it even easier for you to get in touch, that's good right?
The background image for the website was taken by my photographer friend Jans Slapins - in fact, he's been taking a lot of photos with me this summer. You can see some on the 'Gallery' page if you like. I intend to do some more work with him too, so there's plenty more to come!
\\\\\\\\ Gigs I played in August
I played at a number of festivals throughout August which took me all over the country - there was on in Derby, one in Cornwall, one in Guildford, 2 in Berkshire and a few others dotted around the place. I had a blast. Here is a video of me playing a cover of The Black Eyed Peas' 'I Gotta Feelin' at Ampthill Festival back in July:
And here's a photo from Cornwall's Knee Deep Festival - I have no idea what was going on.
\\\\\\\ Plans for September
Despite having just started a new job which is taking up most of my free time, I've still got a few things planned for September:
- 1 Music Video shoot for my song, Sebastian's a Killer
- 1 Acoustic Session Video
- 2 Photoshoots
That's enough for now right?
Thanks for reading!

28th December 2010 - Brand new demo now online! ...
So, as a little christmas treat. I've uploaded a previously unreleased demo of a song called "Turnpike Lane" onto the Music section of the website. Have a look/listen yeh?
I wrote the song almost three years ago about a drunken night out while i was in my first year at uni. But i never did anything with it. I recorded this demo of it back in January/February of 2010, but completely forgot about it until a couple of days ago. And since it's christmas i thought i should let you all have a listen. And it'll be up for free download too. So download it, listen to it, enjoy it and pass it on.
