Thinking solo work again

2016-09-23 14.04.09Pleased to have a couple of “different” solo bookings coming in for January 17.  Mostly my solo performances are full nights at various venues, or supporting touring bands, but this time I get to share the stage with other songwriters – very Nashville, ha ha!

I’ll be at Cluny2, Ouseburn, Newcastle, with the talented Steve Daggett and Ema Lea: Songwriter Sunday – 22nd January from 3 ish.  We’ll be playing our own compositions in turn, and helping each other out as we do so – another new thing for me and my solo work.

The following Wednesday evening (25th Jan, 7 – 9.30) I’ll be at Creative Base, Bill Quay, Gateshead as part of a night of original performances – 30 minute set each.

My albums will be on sale at both events and I’ll also be showcasing some new material amongst the already established as I work towards my next release – working title 16/17 though it might be 54/55 – then again, some words might jump out at me instead.  Let’s see.

Anyway, expect acoustic, archtop, CBGs and maybe a tele…

Great proper Velvets launch Cluny 2 20/11

So pleased Cluny2 Velvets launch went to so.  Fantastic vocal and appreciative audience – we got to show what the band can do.

“…Top draw, in terms of the musicianship and your interpretation of such a cult band, really authentic.”

“The sound was nailed – great interpretations of wonderful songs.  Fantastic musicianship all round.”
