Thx for 2018 – see you in 2019?

I’ve been out solo, duo (as Oil City Shakers) and with the bands The Bandits, Ma Kelly’s Boys and The Velvets in 2018.  Such a great range and variety of music.  Not sure what 2019 will bring but I hope to see you on the road.  Thanks for your support this year.

9th and 10th Nov… Close to home!

This Friday (9th Nov) I’m doing a solo originals set at my local, The Black Bull in Blaydon, alongside Ross Alexander Holly and Pom Tar. Then on Saturday 10th Nov I’m at the fantastic Lounge at Petros in Winlaton Mill – see poster – for a full and varied night of music – Tom Petty to Steve Earle via Bowie, Elbow, Johnny Cash, Alabama 3, Alabama Sheiks and even a bit of Rod Stewart, Pink Floyd, Wreckless Eric and The Velvet Underground… plus the usual foot stomping four string trance wonder as well 😉 Hope to see you at both/either!!!!!! The Lounge is big mind (great beer/gin/wine/vibe) so I need a good bunch of you in there…

I’m feeling like it’s time to get a bit more Outlaw Country feel going on.  Bunch of songs coming together to record in 2019 and maybe put a new band together doing hard edged country and my solo material – working title, still Bates Motel.  Maybe I’ll just go for a three piece with foot percussion….  Thinking on.  Inspired by Steve Earle’s latest album.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing some of you on the road.
