A beautiful year.

A beautiful year has been had. Here is an attempt to sum up such in pictures. Canada with the brother-tour-manager. Ireland with fond forevers. Summer hall, Edinburgh. There is more.

Thank you to all who’ve come along to a gig, listened to a song or few, bought a record, watched a music video, sent a message, made a request, heckled…

2018 is here.

I will be bringing a new album into the world. And also I will become a mother.

Much anticipation. Much gratitude.

Happy New Year to you all.

Live session: Old Lady’s Lament

This was a most remarkable session to take part in. An expedition into a very tall pine stillness.
When Luke (my bro) and I were in Canada, it was Andrew Spindor and his crew, from Habitat Studios in Vancouver, who lead us up and into Cypress Mountain to find this cabin.

And now?

The USA. Seattle has SOLD OUT. So you can’t hear me there anymore. But you could come to any others you are near to: See the list on my website if you feel compelled.

July is almost upon us…

July is almost upon us, a rumble of music in the distance, a summer storm of the best kind. In the immediate future, and with full band, a performance at the Paisley Arts Centre for the Scottish Alternative Music Awards Showcase on the 1st July. Then, on 3rd July, to ITALY for one show at CarroPonte in Milano. How exciting. There are more live date announcements to come… in fact quite a few… very much looking forward to sharing and seeing you soon. – RSHQ

Thank you, Ireland.


A delight to sweep along your coasts. Such adventure.
Thank you to Graham Sweeney and Rhys McBride, our constant road companions.

To all who came to hear.

Our last show in Westport was a good way to finish, with a sporadic swooping of Adam Holmes to help close the night. Now we’re at Graham’s home on the Isle of Achill before returning to real life, tomorrow.
