This fest was a beauty and I met a lot of new folks including Doshy J band. Next you can catch me at the International Music Fest in Ningbo on 8th Oct, from 3pm till late. It's going to be quite a gathering!
I've been traveling around the provinces, been in Hangzhou, Shanghai and Ningbo recently meeting new musician folk and venues. On October the 9th, I'll be playing at Ningbo International Music Festival. This will be a special night of acoustics and I'll be performing my latest Soul-Folk numbers.
This month of Autumn sees me traveling again to nearby provinces. I will be in Hangzhou, meeting new musicians and starting to craft together fresh ideas for new music and future projects. I'll keep you posted and don't forget to listen into my Railtrack Soul-Folk album available on all streaming platforms (iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, QQ), this album got a special mention in the American Songwriter mag last month!

In these hotter months, I've been shaping new songs, experimenting with different dreamscape lyrics and improvising with a range of instruments ranging from sea turtle hand pan drums to a range of ocarinas.
This month it is great to see so many music venues back up and running! I've been experimenting with percussion explorations and improvisation using a large metal pan which really resonated with me from the day I bought it! I will share some short clips with you soon! x
