Hi All, I recently returned from an Artist Residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Arts Centre in Monaghan, Ireland. Here I did some in-depth research into the depths of traditional Celtic folklore and improvisation! I met many inspirational musicians who passed on many ideas for working creatively! It's Visage One night (Hong Kong 27th October) featuring Noah Matthews on percussion and Geoff King Luk on Lead guitar and I'll be sharing some of my new tracks. Come November time, I'll be collaborating with new musicians in Bangkok, seeking new inspirations again
This last few weeks I've been playing out in new places in Shanghai, Cotton's, Lychee and LT Live Bar! I will be touring around Asia in July with a band and doing some guest spots, so watch this space! x
I've just come back from Hong Kong, Sky Production Studios where I laid my new tracks down in the studio! Such a beautiful feeling! These songs are rockier, bluesy at times and have a special groove! I worked with Dan Lavelle on Lead guitar and Graeme Holdaway is now mixing the tracks in the UK!
Each day, I've been revising and scoring a new collection of songs for my 6th album that is due out this summer! These songs are strong, a bit rockier and much of it has come quickly! These songs are about connecting, loving and letting go with a great groove to them!
Gig time with Queen Diamon & Skinny this Sat 3rd March at Harley's Shanghai, plus Boogie Daddy! Can't wait! x
This Chinese New Year, I'm exploring London and Cambridge, reconnecting with my previous musical roots! I've picked up a range of songs both new and traditional to work into a new set! But it's blues and folk that still drive me strongly!
A few gigs with reggae band Moleman and rock band Revolution at Harley's gave me a spot to explore a strong and percussive solo set! I truly loved playing and supporting such a wide range of musicians from all around this amazing globe! Now I take a little break and will be back in the New Year with more collaborations around the globe! Don't forget to check out Spotify, iTunes, Deezer for streaming or downloading my CD's!
